Good luck with that! Monticello is my hometown, in fact, Indiana Beach was one of my first part time jobs. That amusement park has gone down hill since the original owner sold it off some twenty+ years ago. There was a rumor that the a.p. may be closing/bankruptcy this past year.

That race track is small. There is a much larger kart facility just five miles down the same road. The only thing that kart track has going for it is the fact that it is within walking distance of the campground, but if the amusement park ever closes... that camp ground would soon follow.

I do not think that would end up well.
A. Is that Chicago?
B. Most of our members are in Texas.

It is not the Distance... Just the 2nd Ammendment Culture Clash.
This would end up more like Mad Max or something.

Lololol. There's a place a few miles from me that has both paintballing and a small gokart track. I've often wanted to combine the two.

I can imagine it. Hundreds of go karts traveling north. Drivers armed to the teeth. Not sure about Indiana Beach, but in Chicago... as bighead knows....
This is a defense free crime zone. All law-abiding citizens have been disarmed for your convenience.

Indiana is just as gun friendly as Texas, in fact we have more guns per capita than Texas and those are just the ones we admit to owning. Guns and go karts sounds good to me!

Thats the thing... "Law abiding Citizens have been disarmed"
The Texas law is "Open Carry"

I like the idea off paint balling and Go Karts...
Way better than these kooks hiding in the bushes playing seal team.

^^More BS^^^^

He didn't respond. I called another guy about an ATV he was parting out and he said the frame went to the scrap guy last week.
