Malibu Grand Prix is an entertainment company that was popular during the 1970s and 1980s as a franchised miniature indy car racing track. The typical complex included a 3000-4000 sq ft. arcade with a concession stand and a race track outside, covering around 10,000 to 20,000 square feet altogether.

In 2002, Palace Entertainment purchased the three remaining Malibu Grand Prix locations. These locations are located in Redwood City, California, Norcross, Georgia, and San Antonio, Texas. Palace operates additional locations in Los Angeles, California and Dallas, Texas. The Redwood City location closed on August 18, 2013. Fellow entertainment company FunWerks also bought out the Malibu chain at one point, although they ended up filing for bankruptcy in 2004 and its Malibu locations that they had taken over closed.

Other attractions of Malibu centers included miniature golf courses, bumper cars, batting cages and/or an arcade or two (usually these locations were known as the "castle", being shaped like one, although some facilities had a castle and separate game room as well). The games ran on tokens.
