Indoor Amusement Center Coming to Milford

Posted:

MILFORD, Del. - Electric go-karts are coming to Milford. It's called Shore Speed. The up and coming indoor amusement center, located along East Masten Circle, is expected to open in a few months.


"It's an addiction. I've got it. I'm hooked, but it's a good addiction. It's something you can go do and have fun," said Clarence Edgens, owner of Shore Speed.


Edgens says he decided to open the facility in Milford with his two sons because it's what they all love go-karts.


"Besides going to the beach or things of that nature, there's really nowhere for a family to go, especially when it's raining," said Timothy Edgens, Clarence Edgens son.


The 40-thousand square foot facility will feature a rock climbing wall, a kids area, hospitality tents and a VIP room. This track is a little more than a quarter of a mile and the go-karts can go as fast as 40 miles per hour.


Stephen Masten with the city of Milford hopes Shore Speed becomes a destination hot spot.

"It's going to be good for Milford, there's going to be spin offs from this, such as new jobs. It's going to pump money into the economy, and as a result of them being here, other businesses are going to develop," said Masten.


The go-kart track will be for those aged 16 and older. Another area will be set up for kids.

"I wanted to keep it family-oriented. We're a close family. We all work together," said Clarence Edgens.

Working together to bring a little joy to folks who love go-karts.   

The owners of Shore Speed have a  conditional-use agreement with the city.
Once owners officially present the indoor amusement park to the council, it is expected to be approved.
