Feel the need, the need for speed! Then the Sector Sixty6 entertainment complex at The Outlet 66 Mall in Canovanas is the perfect place to channel your inner child.
The newly refurbished mall, just 15 minutes from San Juan’s International Airport and a little over 20 minutes from El Yunque Rainforest, features Puerto Rico’s as well as the Caribbean’s first K1 Speed facility, an indoor, electric go-karts, single track where adult racers can put the pedal to the metal and reach speeds of up to 45 miles per hour – the fastest in the industry.
You may not be racecar drivers Mario Andretti or Dale Earnhardt Jr. but the experience of zooming around a serpentine track under neon lights is exhilarating. Each race is 14 laps and lasts about 10-12 minutes. Face it; go karts are fun! You’ll speed around the track and experience the adrenaline rush that is Indy-style racing. Afterwards you’ll peel off your helmet, high fives abound.
Visitors to K1 Speed at The Outlet 66 Mall are treated to a state-of-the-art venue complete with a museum-worthy collection of authentic racing memorabilia, and plush leather sofas. The track is professionally designed for maximum overtaking opportunities and features PROTEX barriers to maintain safety.
It also has the latest junior electric karts to allow kids 4ft (48”) or taller to get a kick out of go-karting at speeds of around 20 miles per hour. There are no mixed junior and adult races allowed. The electric karts are superior to their gas-powered counterparts in nearly every way: they are quieter, produce zero noxious fumes, and provide instant power without lag.
When not racing, there’s plenty to do at this mall – making it a perfect attraction for Millennials and Gen Zers. The Outlet 66 Mall has gotten a newer, fresher look – a trend occurring in most U.S. mainland shopping centers. Aside from removing the Old San Juan facades for more modern store fronts, the mall has gotten new floors, new entrances, and new retail tenants. Visitors can still enjoy shopping until they drop in stores like Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, Burlington, Nautica, Journeys, Trollbeads, among many others. When hunger strikes, this mall has its visitors covered with venues like Karma’s Wine Bar and Beer Garden, Pizza@Canovanas, Meson Sandwiches, Red Mango, Subway, Papa John’s and KFC, and soon its newest tenant Golden Corral – the only one in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
The Outlet 66 Mall also incorporated to its retail entertainment CXC racing simulators, Fun Box ropes course, arcade games, bumper cars, bowling, and drag racing.
