DRIVE! Racing Karts

As of 2020, DRIVE! Racing Karts is the newest attraction to open at West Edmonton Mall.

DRIVE! is a multi story go kart track, featuring SODI RSX electric karts. The track is over 850 ft. long, and is spread out over three stories.

The attraction exists in Phase One, where the former Cineplex “Cinema 6” dollar-theatre used to live, just outside of the secondary entrance to Galaxyland powered by Hasbro. The location was also previously home to a large indoor skate park, operated by West 49.

DRIVE! features a fleet of over 25 electric karts, all of which are remote configurable to limit speed when necessary.

The DRIVE! lobby exists where Dragon FX tattoo parlor once did.

The track is themed with Neon lights, props, and screenscape wall decals (designed in house), all made to mimic a New York streetscape. DRIVE! art is an impressive showing in itself, and of the tags and additional wall art was completed by hand, by in-house West Edmonton Mall artists.

The attraction is situated below the lower level of the mall, but can be viewed from Phase One with large, open viewing areas looking down into the attraction from the all concourse.
