Redwood City's Malibu Grand Prix to close
July 30, 2013, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Malibu Grand Prix Family Entertainment Center in Redwood City is closing Aug. 18 after 35 years of operation, its general manager announced yesterday.

The center, which offers miniature Indy car racing, miniature golf, turbo go-karts, bumper boats, batting cages and arcade, opened in 1979.

It has been one a month-to-month lease since earlier this year, said sales manager Michael Craig, adding he was hoping it would last to the end of the year. The 14-acre property is leased from Granite Rock Construction.

“Even with the reduced rent, we just weren’t making money,” Craig said. “It’s getting tougher and tougher to make a buck in this business.”

Malibu is owned and operated by Palace Entertainment.
