Here's what I'm thinking. This is a 4 phase plan:

Phase 1) Set up shop to mass produce karts like Mark's Neurotikart
Phase 2) Produce about 25 or so for phase 3
Phase 3) Buy a warehouse and set up a race track complete with arcade, food, whatever else you'd need for entertainment, but the race track is the feature. Because these are electric, they can run indoors and year-round which makes this much more viable than the classic gas karts
Phase 4) Either sell the e-karts to other business or franchise the whole thing if it's doing well. Not only would you have revenue from your track but from unit production and maintenance.

I know I'd totally go if there were one in my city. Those look ridiculously fun. This whole thing would cost at least 200k to start up. $75k-100k for the karts then another 100k or so in other misc. costs.
