Go Karts/Bumper Karts

My fiancee discovered at the rodeo Carnival that she loves bumper karts. So after my failed attempts to get her into motorcycles. I wanted to see how she would take to go kart racing, I myself am pretty ignorant of the whole scene anyway, but I love anything that has a motor. So..

If you wanted to get started in go-kart racing, where would you go?

I've already looked up some potential at Track 21, Fast Track, and Go Kart Raceway, but I'd also like to find a place that has some inexpensive friendly go-kart fun, even a place that has good bumper car setup or a very slow track, so she can get a little more time in it, before jumping into 20-40mph racing.

Ignore her love for go karts and demand that she starts loving motorcycles, or you'll leave her instead?

She lets me do anything I want on 2 wheels, so I can't hate on her for not loving it as much as me.

Took my gf to a Track 21 outing once. Too competative though, she just wanted to have fun. She's not a speed/adrenaline/kill your opponent type of person and had a tough time learning the kart functions, driving and fending off the blast pack behind her. I'm sure she got lapped at least 3 times.

Not talking down the track cause that's what it's there for, just a heads up before you take your girl out.

Ya I was looking for something a bit lower key to start off with for sure, which is why I posted this (looking for some places I did not list.)
