Samantha​​ LaMagna, director of marketing, said the Fort Worth location is expected to open around mid-May or early June.

“Andretti Indoor Karting & Games decided to open in the Fort Worth market to provide families with a premier entertainment destination, leveraging the city's vibrant community and strategic location,” LaMagna said.

LaMagna said that the Fort Worth location will feature diverse entertainment offerings that are suitable for all ages including:
  • “Superkarts” on multi-level tracks
  • 100+ state-of-the-art arcade games
  • Virtual reality experiences
  • Racing simulators
  • A two-story laser tag arena
  • Augmented reality bowling

The venue will also offer a scratch restaurant, full bar and event space that can accommodate groups anywhere from 10 to 2,000 guests.

A closer look

According to a company website, the “Superkarts” are high-speed, electric go-karts that have instant acceleration.

Virtual reality experiences at Andretti Indoor Karting & Games include:
  • Hologate Blitz, which offers virtual reality graphics combined with a motion simulator that rises a full meter in height and can tilt 30 degrees in any direction.
  • Hyperdeck VR, which is a four-person experience combining strong wind and heating fans and a platform that lifts and lowers players to correspond with the action.
The website states that the two-story laser tag arena features multiple base stations, energy gates for special power-ups during gameplay and wall targets throughout the arena that interact with the players. While playing one of 10 different games, each player can choose their own weapon settings as well as change them throughout the game.

The 7D Xperience motion theater is an interactive experience where multiple riders at a time compete for the highest score using laser blasters and battling on-screen enemies, states the website.
