A giant Mario Kart race (with real karts) will soon be organized in Paris

Mario Kart is undoubtedly one of the video games multiplayer the most popular in the world. Since the release of the first installment on Super NES, entitled Super Mario Kart, the famous racing game has become one of the spearheads of Nintendo, to the point of going out on absolutely all the machines of the manufacturer. The latest isMario Kart 8 Deluxe, released on Nintendo Switchwhich brings together millions of players from all over the world.

In short, you understood it, Mario Kart fun for everyone, big and small, and there are many players who have dreamed of being able to practice a karts crazy, as in the game, in the real life. You are not dreaming, it's now a reality and you'll be able to do a little race Mario Kart "IRL" in full Paris.

After touring the United States, the Mushroom Rally Karting will be visiting several European cities, and for our pleasure, Paris is on the list. We explain the principle: participants disguised as different characters of the game (Mario, Luigi, Toad or Yoshi to name a few) compete on a real journey of karting arranged for the occasion, bordered by reproductions of mushrooms, of skins bananas and of carnivor plants so that immersion is as complete as possible.

We still do not know much about this Parisian edition of the Mushroom Rally Kartingexcept that it will count 600 participants (you can well imagine that places are suddenly limited). We do not know anything about the exact place or the date, but the additional information should not be long. In the meantime, you can already register on the website of to receive all the necessary information at the right moment.

Only question we ask ourselves: Nintendo support the event, and if not, what will happen to rights? For the anecdote, at Japan, the society Maricar offered the opportunity to visit Tokyo in kart, disguised as Super Mario. Nintendo filed a complaint in February 2017 for using the appellation "Mario Kart" without their permission. We love the idea of ​​such an event that transposes the concept of Mario Kart in real life, but we hope that the event will not be repeated for the Paris edition.
