Myrtle Beach is set to get a new go-kart amusement park in the summer of 2016 along Restaurant Row.
The park, owned by The Track in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., is under construction and will have electric go-kart racing on multi-level tracks, as well as an arcade. The park plans to open this summer, though officials didn’t give an opening date.

The amusement park will feature two electric go-kart racing areas on multilevel tracks, a rookie track and a track for small children.
The go-karts will run on electricity rather than gasoline, making for a quieter and environmentally friendly atmosphere.
The six-acre site that is the former location of the Shriners Club of Myrtle Beach also includes a 15,000-square-foot, two-story building with an arcade on the ground floor and a new meeting room for the Shriners on the second floor.
