Who doesn’t love Mario Kart? From parties to pub games nights, it’s guaranteed to bring people together and turn even the mellowest person into a competitive monster.

So how do you fancy playing Mario Kart for real?

Mushroom Rally, the epic go-carting experience that allows those taking part to dress as their favourite Mario Kart characters and bomb round a custom race track with their mates is coming to Manchester.

The thrilling karting experience based on the beloved game franchise was launched in Australia earlier this year as “Mushroom Racing” and is coming to the UK in February, with racetracks situated in Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham, Leeds, London, Sheffield and Newcastle.

Obviously, there’s a limit to how realistic the race track can be (you can’t throw turtle shells or banana skins to spin your opponents off the track) but you’ll be able to collect stars as you go for your chance to win a prize, and the first three finishers will be able to take their place on the podium at the end.

The winners from each city will have the chance to fight it out in London to win a VIP trip to Vegas for them and two friends.
