High Voltage Indoor Karting Opens in Medina, OH
Facility News

Go-kart enthusiasts can now zip and zoom around Medina’s first indoor track.

Business partners Steve Madden, of Medina, and Greg Cordray, of Akron, have opened High Voltage Indoor Gokart Racing in the former Henry Furnace Foundry building on the corner of Bronson and Foundry streets in early 2015.

“The track is a quarter-mile long,” Cordray said.

Cordray said the track will be the largest, and safest, of its kind in Ohio.

High Voltage Gokart Racing, at the corner of Bronson and Foundry streets in Medina, will become Ohio’s largest indoor electric go-kart track when it opens in early 2015.

“This is going to be extremely safe. All the carts are electrically powered and will be remotely controlled,” he said. Cordray said the walls will feature safety barriers in case drivers lose control.

The go-kart track will encompass 50,000 square feet, and the facility will feature party rooms, a snack bar and a track for kids.

Racers will be able to hit high speeds close to 50 mph on the straight-aways, “but it will feel like you’re going 100,” Cordray said.

The fun doesn’t stop there, according to Cordray, who hope to fill the entire 135,000-square-foot building with small businesses focused on leisure — from rock climbing to brewpubs.

“The building will be known as The Foundry,” Cordray said.

The partners bought the cavernous building, which sat vacant for almost a quarter-century, at auction for $308,000 in 2012.

“The rest of the building will be about having some fun and getting away from the grind of life to let off some steam,” Cordray said. “It is all going to be complementary businesses to High Voltage Indoor Gokart Racing.”

The building served as a foundry for almost a century. The original structure was built in the 1860s, making it one of Medina’s oldest industrial sites.

The foundry made hollow castings and later was purchased by T.E. Henry, of Cleveland, to manufacture Moncrief furnaces. Furnaces were manufactured at the foundry until 1954.
