for a second circuit. The best way to enjoy the Wild Woody is to blast full- speed ahead and enjoy a little friendly competition with your fellow drivers. As long as the breeze is in your hair and there’s a smile on your face, you’re doing it right. The Track offers single and double occupant karts, and there are also karts available for smaller children to enjoy. The fun doesn’t stop at go-karts though.

After you have had your fill of all things apple from the Apple Barn, you can walk next door to The Applewood Farmhouse Restaurant or The Applewood Farmhouse Grill. Both options have served their apple fritters and apple butter to the community
