Highly recommend! Fun for everyone. Challenging physically and mentally, and requires a team approach. Prior video gaming will help with results!

Only $20 and you get to race these really fast indoor electric cart race cars. We were a group of eight guys and had an absolute blast. The virtual reality indoor game looks amazing too at this complex. Will be back in spring for sure.
