Celebrating 40 years of Go-Kart fun!

If you are in Ocean City this week, you may notice a couple of changes as you drive down Coastal Highway. The speed limit, normally 40 mph through North Ocean City, has been reduced to 30 mph, and Downtown, the speed limit has also been reduced. This is due to the expected, unauthorized H2Oi Pop-Up Rally.  It is reasonable to expect heavier than usual traffic, noise and strict enforcement of vehicle laws during the week and weekend.

Baja Amusements is celebrating 40 years of go-kart fun this year. It’s hard to believe this West Ocean City business has been around since 1981, and has grown to be 10 acres of family fun.

Baja started in 1981 down on Stinky Beach and moved to its current location in 1983.  It started out as a Dune Buggy track and grew from there. There used to be a drag strip where the mini golf course is, and a speed boat course where stock car track is now.  In 40 years they have  grown from a single Dune Buggy Track down on Stinky Beach to a 10 acre park with 8 go-karts tracks, mini golf, climbing walls, kiddie rides and and arcade.
