5 “Must-Haves” for a perfect Toronto Birthday Party

Providing your child with a unique and unforgettable birthday party is the goal of every parent when it gets to “that time of year”. And though it’s true that there are no shortages of great venues out there that offer suitable Toronto birthday party services, it can sometimes be a struggle to narrow down the choices to ensure you plan the perfect party. To help you with this, we have identified 5 “Must-Haves” for you to consider when planning your next Toronto Birthday Party.

1 - Must have activities that are appropriate for children of different age ranges…

There are undoubtedly a number of venues throughout the city that offer great activities for children’s birthday parties, however, many of the activities that they offer are only appropriate for specific age groups. If you’re hosting a Toronto birthday party that includes children of different age ranges, how do you make sure that everyone will be included in the activities and not get left out?

At GPK, we have a variety of entertainment activities that are appropriate for children of various ages. Featuring indoor electric go karting, tactical laser tag, interactive gaming, and slot car racing, you will be sure to find an activity at GPK that is perfect for your child’s age group.   And even adults who may be attending the party can enjoy a spin around the track, or an adult beverage in our comfortable and inviting VIP Lounge. We pride ourselves in being inclusive to anyone and everyone!

2 - Must have great food…

Must-Haves for a perfect Toronto Birthday Party | GPK | www.gokarttoronto.com

Make no mistake about it…children do not normally get excited for a Toronto birthday party because of the food that is being served. Despite the fact that food is rarely the highlight of the event, it can sometimes be a detracting feature of the party, or in some cases, a source of unfortunate disappointment.

At GPK, you will never have that worry. We offer premium onsite foodservices that will eliminate the stress of planning for this part of the party. With menus that are suitable for all age groups, you will never be disappointed with the quality of the food that is served at your party, or the costs of our meal packages. And best of all, we provide everything for you, from a fully furnished party room, to cutlery, plates, linens, and drinks. It’s “one-stop” shopping at its best!

3 - Must be conveniently located…

Even the best venues cannot be enjoyed if your guests are unable to conveniently get to them. Children want all their friends to be able to attend their party, so it’s extremely important to be considerate of the distance that you ask their parents to travel, and the ease of accessibility.

GPK is conveniently located within Downsview Park in mid-town Toronto, minutes away from two major highways. Public transit also travels throughout Downsview Park, offering numerous commuting opportunities. There is ample parking throughout the park, and best of all…it’s free!

4 - Must be affordable…

Must-Haves for a perfect Toronto Birthday Party | GPK | www.gokarttoronto.com

As parents, we always want to provide our children with “the best”, and this holds true when planning a Toronto birthday party. However, this endeavor to have “the best” often comes with a hefty price tag. Limited package options and rigid booking restrictions can sometimes have you paying for things that you may not even want as part of your party program.

When booking your Toronto birthday party at GPK, you’ll be amazed by the numerous options that are available to you. Instead of offering just 1 or 2 packages that are designed to limit choices and increase spend, we allow you to construct your own event package and tailor your selections to include only the elements that you want as part of your party. This ensures that you’re able to have the party that you want while meeting your budgetary requirements.

5 - Must be fun…

Without question, everything that we mentioned above is extremely important to consider when planning your next Toronto birthday party. However, none of these other points matter if your party is missing one thing…FUN!

You will never have this worry when booking your party at GPK. Our unique activity experiences are unlike those offered at any other venue in the city, and our friendly and experienced staff will stop at nothing to ensure that your child’s Toronto birthday party is their most memorable one yet.  Your guest’s FUN is our first priority, and this will be evident the moment you step through our doors.

By now it’s clear that that there is a lot to consider when deciding on your child’s next Toronto birthday party. Lucky enough, we’ve taken the guesswork out of this process and made it simple for you to recognize that a birthday party at GPK checks off all the boxes.  So if you’re looking for a place to host the most memorable, exhilarating, and flat-out awesome kid’s birthday party, Click here to check out our Children’s Group Event Packages or contact us at sales@gpkartways.com to speak with one of our experienced party planners.  For more information on all of the services available at GPK, please visit our corporate site at grandprixkartways.com

5 Awesome Things You Get Out of Go Karting in Toronto

In truth, there are more than 5 awesome things you can benefit by racing on a Toronto Go Kart.

We will only give you 5 that have made an impact in our readers’ lives.

Toronto go kart racing is an activity that surely pumps up your adrenaline, stimulates your brain and strengthens bonds among peers and family. To be perfectly specific about it, here are what we identified as the top 5 awesome things you get out of Toronto go kart racing.


Brain Stimulation | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

 

Benefit #1: Brain Stimulation

Although most physical activities stimulate the brain, go karting in Toronto’s leading indoor raceway has a little bit more to give with its F1 style raceway. The experience is more realistic and more exhilarating than that of others.

Decision-making.

Racing demands a driver’s sound decision making ability by allowing the driver to create plans on how to finish ahead of the others. A good race driver would first and foremost assess the road he will have to trek, anticipating difficulties in some sections of the racetrack and formulating plans to ease through those. He will have to foresee that other racers are creating the same plans. How he will manage to zip away when a sharp turn bottlenecks, will really depend on what available options he has at that exact moment. He may take the turn freely without trouble if he is well ahead of the pack when he reaches the obstacle, or he may be sandwiched between aggressive drivers. That is where he will have to utilize his sound decision making skills taking into consideration the strength of his vehicle and weighing out its limitations.

Practice makes perfect,

as the saying goes. Trials and errors are analyzed and plans are modified to establish a course of action that works to attain objectives. It is common knowledge that many of our famous Nascar and Formula One or Honda Indy superstars started their careers zipping around the race track on a go kart. 

Reflexes

are put to the test when un-anticipated events happen during the race. That sends signals to the brain to heighten all the necessary senses and sharpen the driver’s reflexes. One factor that should be emphasized here as well, should be control over these reflexes. By definition, reflexes are nearly instantaneous, involuntary movement in response to a stimulus. It is done without thinking and automatically happens as a reaction. Some reflexes could be beneficial to you, some might not.  Learn how to control these reflexes.

Mastery of Controls | | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #2: Mastery of the Controls of a Toronto Go Kart

As the great Bruce Lee once said, in order to effectively use your weapon, you should become one with it. Well, there are no weapons in racing. But studying your go kart, its strengths and its limitations and compensating with it allows you to use it to its optimum potential. Humans are the most adaptable animals. We easily learn to adjust to the changing surroundings and the corresponding changes in its demands. That is why if there is a need to adjust to conform with the controls of the electric go kart, we can easily do just that. Thus, mastery of the controls is achieved in no time.

 

Healthy Competition | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #3: Fosters Healthy Competition

Racing is interactive and fun; and if used by companies as a team building tool, it creates camaraderie and team work among workers through healthy competition. That strengthens working relationships and stimulates workplace cooperation, making it easier for them achieve a singular objective.

 

Adrenaline-Rush | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #4: Adrenaline Rush for A Healthier You

Physical activity, in moderate amounts, facilitates the release of Adrenaline, sometimes referred to as the super human hormone. It positively affects the body by increasing blood flow into the tissues and brain during the thrill of a race. That is why a driver feels a sudden flushing, a gush of heat flooding the whole body which leads to a sharper mind and a stronger heart. The feeling of heat is caused by the increased blood supply into the tissues as the blood vessels react to the Adrenaline hormone by dilating allowing more blood to pass through. Whoah! Too technical there! But you get the drift, right?

Family Bonding | Benefit of Toronto Go Karting | 647-496-5838

Benefit #5: Builds Bonds Between Peers, Co-Workers or Family

The human body responds well to a stimulus that originates from someone whom he or she is bonded with. As mentioned earlier, that sense of belongingness and improved perception of self-worth develops into a sense of openness towards that other person. If you are a very busy father who barely has the time to spend with your kids, go karting is a perfect tool to re-establish that trusting relationship and encourage re-building of negative perceptions between you and your family member.

One reader once attested to the effectiveness of go karting as a tool to rebuild his relationship with his son. Not only did it open his son’s eyes to the fact that the father genuinely loves him. But it also enlightened the father of his shortcomings. Melodramatic huh? Before we received that comment, all of these things were just words that occupied our blog space. But then upon knowing that there was at least one, in the billions of people around the world, who was moved by our words and had went through a positive change in his life, writing writing suddenly had a purpose, a responsibility, almost like a movement.

Why don’t you give Grand Prix Kartways a call at (647) 496-5838 and book your race. You’ll never know what impact a simple Toronto go kart race can have in your life. Call us today.

Where In the World Is Toronto Go Karting Popular

Go Karting in Toronto is enjoyed millions of people even around the world.

It is impossible to pin down a race like Toronto Go Karting as being the national sport of a particular country, and like a lot of competitive activities, it has spread like wildfire during its evolution, and has crossed land and sea to take root wherever its wheels take it.

Where Did Toronto Go Karting Originate?

Where in the World is Toronto Go Karting Popular? |

Rather watch the video of this? Click the photo now!

It is generally agreed that the Founding Father of Go Karting is Art Ingles, who manufactured the first kart in California, in 1956. It is the US that gets credit for the invention of the sport.

The trend spread rather quickly, and before long go-cart (then spelt with a “c”) tracks began to appear all around America. It was as if there was something innately appealing about the fast and exciting, nitty-gritty world of the Go kart.

America, the birthplace of the kart, was, therefore, the first place in the world where the sport became popular, but the trend was not to stop there. The manufacture of the karts improved, and by the late 1950s America had a dedicated kart manufacturing company, known humbly as Go Kart Manufacturing Co, as well as a specifically manufactured Go Kart engine; the McCulloch MC-10.

Go Karting Travels to Europe

The engine company took the concept of the Go Kart to Europe, where it gained an instant following and rapidly grew to become a very popular sport. Back then, tracks were often set up in the streets for race events, a format that is still very apparent in competitive outdoor karting, such as in the Junior Monaco World Cup, for example.

In the modern world, Go Karting has, naturally, spread to other continents, and can be found in most developed countries like Canada.

We accept pre-reserved event packages for groups. Call us!

Art Ingels, Founding Father of Go Karting, assembled the first ever go kart in 19563

Indoor Toronto Go Karting- The Second Wave Of Popularity

The second wave, and the one that carried the popularity of Toronto Go Karting the next level was the rise of indoor Go Karting, such as GPK’s Toronto Go Karting facility. They can now be found in most US cities, and in many cities across Europe, and are dotted around many other countries.

The indoor venues have changed the face of Go Karting and have escalated the popularity of the activity. No longer is Go Karting only enjoyed at the level of international and national competition. It is now enjoyed on a casual basis by children of all ages, teenagers, adults, males and females of all nationalities, and just about anyone who enjoys a bit of a rush of blood!

Watch our video on the History of Karting.

 

Indoor tracks provide the right measure of entertainment and competition and have increased the accessibility of Toronto Go Karting.

Indoor Karting is especially popular in the UK, where it exploded in the early 1990’s and reached outwards to Belgium, France, and Germany among other countries. It has taken off to some extent in the US, and here in Canada too.

For a clean, safe and exhilarating Toronto Go Karting experience, visit Grand Prix Kartways, where you can speed around one of the best Go Karting tracks in a race that will blow your senses.

Toronto Go-Karting Makes for a Great School Excursion

If we asked you to think of a typical school excursion,

you might conjure up images of museums, art galleries, and maybe the zoo if you are lucky. Traditionally speaking, you probably don’t immediately associate go-karting with school excursions. We don’t have anything against museums, but we think that go-karting might be an exhilarating and often educational option. Wait, hear us out…

 

The Ultimate Reward Trip

There are two types of school excursion, as far as our ancient brains can remember. The first is a reward trip, and, in this case, the excursion can be purely for fun, and is usually more outrageous than a field trip. You may have finished the year, completed some exams, or shown exceptional performance at school, but in some way you are being rewarded.

Planning the best School Excursion ever? Look no further! Visit us GokartToronto.com today!

Go-karting is an exceptionally exciting way to be treated, and both students and teachers can enjoy the thrill of the race. Nothing quite beats the rush of zooming around the track with your fellow classmates, and sharing a day of food, laughter, and adrenaline. You deserve it after all of that academia!

 

Whether you are a teacher looking to treat your class, or a student looking to propose ideas for the end of year trip, why not suggest Grand Prix Kartways in Toronto?!

 

 

Does Go-Karting Make For An Educational School Trip?

It’s not difficult to agree that go-karting makes for an extremely fun end of year trip but is it possible that go-karting can also make for an educational outing? We believe so…

 

The first educational benefit is that go-karting can help people, young people, to learn to drive. Although go-karts are very different to cars, karting helps students to improve reaction times, grasp the basics of driving, and improve their confidence. Anyone who is approaching the age where they might want to learn to drive can benefit from a go-karting school excursion.

 

Go-Karting & STEM

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and maths, and the development of these areas is considered extremely valuable for individuals in today’s society. Go-karting gives students many opportunities to enhance their skills in these areas, and a go-karting school excursion would be ideal for these students in particular.

 

Go-karts are an accessible way for students of STEM to explore and understand the mechanics of vehicles, the physics of driving and the forces involved with go-karting, and aspects of designing and building. They can learn about the technology involved and the recent advancements such as the environmentally friendly electrical powered go-karts.

 

You could consider combining the trip with the study of go-kart mechanics, or with the mathematics of acceleration, or another related module, and perhaps hold the excursion as a treat at the end. There are already educational programs that use go-karts to enhance learning.

 

Combination Packages & Discounts

If you want to organize a school excursion or another large event, speak to Grand Prix Kartways Toronto. We can create combination packages that include food and entertainment, and various go-karting formats. Speak to us about tailoring your group package, and adding an educational spin. Discounts are available for schools.

 

Grand Prix Kartways can provide the ultimate adrenaline packed, fun filled school trip that students will remember forever to come! Visit us today!

Outdoor Vs Indoor Go Karting in Toronto: Which Is Better?

When Go-Karting in Toronto, which is better, outdoor or indoor?

Many new racers will be asking this question in their hunt for the greatest go-karting rush they can find. To truly know the answer for yourself, you will want to experience both at some point. It all comes down to personal preference really, but indoor karting does offer some notable advantages, especially for the recreational racer.

Toronto Go Kart | (647) 496 - 5838 | Grand Prix Kartways

The Weather

It may sound trivial at first, but the first major difference between the outdoor and indoor track is the weather exposure. Bad weather can lead at best to harsh driving conditions, and at worst can cause your big race to be cancelled.

Want More Toronto Go-Karting videos? Check it out here.

 

There is no way to guarantee the weather conditions at an outdoor track, so while some people find the wind in their face to be truly exhilarating, and some people might enjoy the challenge of handling the karts in these conditions, nobody really likes to be rained off!

 

At indoor go-karting tracks such as that in Grand Prix Kartways Toronto, the weather never affects the racing conditions, and we never have to call off the day. This means you can enjoy a dry track that is safer to drive on, and gives you a full speed thrill every time, without fail.

 

The Go-Karts

 

Where recreational go-karting is concerned, indoor karts tend to be faster. Outdoor karts are usually gas powered, and because of variable road conditions they have to run at slower speeds. At our race track in Toronto, our electric powered go-karts run at speeds of up to 85 KPH, faster than most outdoor karts allow. They also emit no harmful fumes, making them more ecologically friendly, and more friendly for everybody’s lungs too.

 

The design of these indoor go-karts is also different. One outer shell covers all of the mechanics. On outdoor karts, more of the motor is exposed, and the gas is flammable. The weight of an indoor kart is more evenly distributed, and they are less likely to flip. All in all, safety is greater during indoor karting.

Check out more videos on Electric Go-Karts here.

 

What Else?

 

Indoor go-karting centers are often much more accommodating than outdoor tracks, which offer limited facilities outside of the actual circuit itself. At our race track in Toronto, we also offer facilities such as a restaurant and bar, amusement arcade and entertainment centre, ample comfortable seating, and plenty of activities for children. This makes indoor karting in Toronto a more well-rounded, family-friendly experience.

 

Availability is also something to consider. You might want to choose your go-kart track based on what is close to your location. If you are looking for the leading, if not the best facility for go-karting in Toronto, visit Grand Prix Kartways today!

What are the Different Types of Toronto Go Kart

A Toronto Go Kart is a kind of blanket term for a small four wheeled vehicle.

So as you can imagine, there are quite a lot of different types out there, of all sorts of shapes and sizes. The type of go-kart used usually depends on the situation. A soap box derby kart is an unusual go-kart used for downhill racing, and powered only by gravity. They

Toronto Go Kart | Grand Prix Kartways | 647-496-5838 | 75 Carl Hall Rd. Downsview Park Toronto ON M3K 2B9 Canada

Competitive Go Kart | Toronto Go Kart

wouldn’t be much good on an indoor Go Karting track in Toronto.
Toronto Go Karting takes place at many levels; from the highly recreational, to the highly competitive. There are indoor tracks, outdoor tracks, and high speed road tracks, and there are Go-Karts designed for each situation.

Competitive Go-Karts

There are three main types of Toronto Go Kart used for highly competitive track racing. Sprint Karts are the most commonly used. They are fast and versatile, and can be raced on many different types of track.

 

The Oval Karts are designed specifically for turning tight corners in only one direction, and are therefore perfectly designed for oval tracks. The Enduro Karts are built with maximum speed in mind, and can reach heart racing speeds of up to 90 miles per hour. Racers lie flat to reduce air resistance. If you watch a major Karting event involving professionals, then you will see one of these three types of Kart.

Check out our video: Go Karting the NASCAR Way

Indoor Go-Karting

There are many types of indoor go kart in Toronto, and again the type a track will have all depends on the purpose. 2-stroke engines, or low-powered electric engines, are used for amusement style karts, while more competitive and exciting tracks use 4-stroke gas engines, or high powered electric ones that deliver around 15 HP. Toronto’s indoor karts vary in size and class, and can feature any one of a number of engines made by major manufacturers such as Briggs & Stratton, Honda, and others.

Petrol ones leave a smoggy pollution and make an unbearable amount of noise, all of which would be contained in the warehouse for your children to breathe in.

For the indoor experience electric go-karts are much more preferable. Petrol ones leave a smoggy pollution and make an unbearable amount of noise, all of which would be contained in the warehouse for your children to breathe in. This used to be a problem, because earlier electric go-karts could not produce as much power and speed as their petrol rivals.

Fortunately, this is no longer an issue. The new electric go-karts are just as effective, if not more effective, and in some cases can deliver even more power and speed; all without creating pollution.

What Go Karts Do We Use At Grand Prix Kartways?

At Grand Prix Kartways we are have to find the perfect balance between competition and recreation. We therefore needed a Go Kart that is fast and exhilarating, but which also handles great and has plenty of safety. We choose the Italian-made EK-5N-DR electric Go-Karts, along with the EK-Mini for the kids. The adult karts have top speeds of 85Kph, deliver 20 HP, and accelerate really fast! They also make for a much cleaner and more enjoyable environment than a gas-powered engine.
We believe this to be the best choice for indoor Go Karting in Toronto. If you want to find out for yourself what it is like to race the finest karts in Toronto, then come along to Grand Prix Kartways.
