Big Bear Speedway’s open-air racetrack, located on the main lot at Big Bear Snow Play, is a Grand Prix style course that is a fifth-of-a-mile long with hairpin turns and s-curves. Big Bear Speedway’s fleet of SODI RT8 Karts, which look like miniature Formula 1 racecars, have innovative technology designed to handle the twists and turns with pinpoint precision. These karts are built for speed, which can reach speeds of up to 30 mph! Big Bear Speedway fleet of karts consists of both single and double karts. The double karts have two steering wheels and two brake pedals for training or parent riding with a child. Up to 11 cars are allowed on the track at one time. Drivers however, are not racing against each other; they’re competing against the clock! Participants get more than two miles of racing per heat with an average of 10 to 14 laps per heat.
Adjacent to the racetrack is Big Bear Ropes Course, a state-of-the-art aerial adventure that towers 35 feet off the ground! This two-story obstacle course is a great way to extend the fun after the racing ends. Participants face 37 different challenges, with many of its features exposed to nothing but air, including the Sky Rail Zipline that stretches 80 feet and bananas out onto a ledge.
