If you have children, you will, at some point, end up at the Las Vegas Mini Gran Prix. Deny it all you want, but you should just give in to that fact now. It will cause more stress only if you resist. Either your own offspring or one of their friends will insist on having a birthday party there, and as a doting parent, you must deny your child nothing. Of course, if you don't have children, you're more than welcome to join in the mini-racing experience. Just prepare to step over, around and between the little ones.
Quite frankly, as far as kiddie birthday parties go, Las Vegas Mini Gran Prix has it all. Inexpensive food, picnic-style tables, an extensive arcade, a Super Fun Slide, a mini-roller coaster and three styles of miniature race cars. Go Karts are available as you race against folks who were once your friends until they "accidentally" bumped into you on the track. We must warn you not to get too carried away, as those unassuming teenage staff members are watching your every move and have the capability to "pull the plug" on your car should you get too unruly on the track.
Next up, try the Sprint Karts. Even though the back of each car states "No Bumping," don't be surprised if that innocent looking kid cuts you off at a turn or rams into the back of your car. This car race gets pretty cutthroat with quite a few spinouts. One of the safety features of the Sprint Karts is that when one car spins out, all the other cars automatically slow down and stop, if necessary. Once the heroic pit crew gets everyone facing the right way, your car starts up again and you're ready for some harmless road rage.
If you're 16 -- IDs will be checked -- you're able to run a time trial in the Gran Prix Cars. Basically a race against your own time, and without fear of interference from other drivers, you're allowed two laps to run the winding track without spinning out or running into the tire bumpers. Good luck with that one.
Overall, the Las Vegas Mini Gran Prix is a child's dream. Underage driving never has been more appealing.
