The race is on to relive your glory days of go-carting as you reminisce about your favorite Super Nintendo game Super Mario Kart. It’s go-karting with a unique twist, as you will get the opportunity in March 2019 to experience and be part of a traveling, interactive recreation of the popular game.

An Australian Company putting the event together shared with Chron.com that it will be making its way to Houston to an undisclosed venue as of yet. It’s not certain if it will be a weekend extravaganza or just a one-day excursion of the interactive recreation. The video below from the Mushroom Racing Facebook page shows what the experience could be like.

Each city’s winning racer will go on to Las Vegas to race in the grand finale in July 2019. What better way to join in on a little competitive fun than dressing up as your favorite Super Mario character and race down the themed track?

This “rally of a lifetime,” as their website states, is sure to delight millennials who grew up with the original Mario Kart when it debuted in 1992. They won’t be disappointed as this classic game comes to life.
