Circuit Tiki go-karting at Sentosa
If there’s anything video games like Daytona, GTA and Mario Kart have taught us, it’s that flooring the pedal is pretty darn shiok. For all those who could do with a bit of adrenaline and excitement in their lives, Sentosa now has a new go-kart circuit to check out: Circuit Tiki.
Feel the rush and the track whizzing by with their limited-time only pop-up happening from 2nd April – 30th June 2021.
First indoor go-kart circuit in Singapore
Singapore’s weather changes like the wind; it can be swelteringly hot one minute and turn into a chilly downpour the next. But come rain or shine, you’ll be able to enjoy a visit here as the Circuit Tiki is a fully-indoor circuit, located underground in the RWS carpark.
A collaboration between KF1 Karting Circuit and RWS, this 550M-long track features 23 turns to zip through as quickly as possible. True Mario Kart masters will know that in order to get the best lap time, you’ll have to memorise the track map, so here’s a copy to refer to before you head down:
Go up to speeds of 40KM/H
There are two modes here to try: Novice takes you up to speeds of 25KM/H and is open to both folks with or without a drivers license. But if you’re armed with your swanky green license card, try the Advanced vehicle instead, which comes equipped with an engine that can accelerate you up to a zoomin’ 40KM/H.
Prices for a 10-minute session are as follows:
- Novice – $18 for RWS members | $28 for public
- Advanced – $25 for RWS members | $35 for public
Each session allows you up to approximately 10 laps, so channel your inner Lewis Hamilton and max out the speed. There’s no need to keep looking at your watch as the staff will light up the red lamps scattered around the track to let you know when your time is almost up.
Up to 12 people can ride per round, meaning you’ll probably have to share the lane with others. If you’d like to have more of the track to yourself, try coming during off peak timings, like on weekdays or when the pop-up opens at 10AM daily.
Pro-tip: Unlike asphalt roads, the floor here is slightly more slippery, so you’ll want to be careful with the corners.
Hair nets and helmets will be provided for safety and hygiene, but you’ll have to wear your own covered shoes to ride the karts. Participants also have to be at least 1.4M tall in order to play.
To keep the go-karts safe to share, they’re also layered with the same self-disinfecting coating that’s used on public transport like buses and MRTs.
Visit Circuit Tiki at Resorts World Sentosa
Many of us used to flock to places like Batam or JB to have a go at the go-karts but now that those are out of the picture, try this new addition to Sentosa instead. On top of the underground locale, the track is also decked with Hawaiian-themed decor like volcano standees and Tiki banners for an extra dose of holiday vibes.
