If you’re an adult, you’re looking at $30 per eight-minute heat, which also comes with a safety briefing, safety equipment, and a locker for your belongings. Yes, you’re going racing here at what might just be the State of Connecticut’s most challenging indoor go-kart track.
It’s a great outlet for an adrenaline rush. But as you may have already deciphered, this attraction may require some prior karting experience.
5 – Pequot Trails
If you’re looking to get outside and entwine with the area’s stunning forested scenery, look no further than Pequot Trails.
There are a few precautionary steps you should consider before venturing out. For one, make sure you bring plenty of fluids if you plan on hiking all day. Self-explanatory, right? Leave the woods the same way you found them, stay on the marked trail, and know your physical limitations.
Once you’re prepared for the adventure, set off on the trail that matches your level of physical conditioning. You can take the scenic trail that provides stunning views of Pequot Museum’s outside attractions. Or, set off on the Lantern Hill Trail which will bring you 500 feet above sea level.
