My childhood dreams are coming true because a real-life Mario Kart race is coming to Denver. You can be a part of the race in Denver on April 6, 2019, and here's how.

Welcome to Mario Kart

I've spent countless hours perfecting my Mario Kart skills throughout the year. I've learned how to wait for the perfect moment to release a shell or banana to leave my opponents in the dust.

It looks like I will finally be able to put these skills to use in a real-life Mario Kart race. The Mushroom Rally is going to be on Saturday, April 6 in Denver. Get ready to race your heart out on your go-kart.

The location is being kept a secret and here's what you should know:

  • You'll need a ticket to get in
  • All ages are welcome, as long as you're 4 feet tall
    • Max Height is around 6'7"
  • You get to dress up as your favorite Mario Kart character (mine = Toad)
  • Winners will compete in Las Vegas for the National Championship

Denver isn't the only one that gets to get in on the fun. There are 16 heats in 16 cities and then the final race is in Vegas. I can't wait to tell my parents all those video games are actually paying off. See more about the Mushroom Rally here.
