An augmented reality go-kart track is coming to London

Chaos Karts is going to be an epic gaming experience once it opens in August

London is about to get an IRL Mario Kart experience in August this year! Well, it won’t actually be Nintendo themed. But it’s basically the same thing! Plus, so much more.

This all-new attraction, named CHAOS KARTS, throws players into a hectic virtual world, living inside a real-life video game to race / battle their friends, family, rivals, colleagues and more. The future of gaming is here folks!

Engineered by The Ents Inc, CHAOS KARTS combines the worlds of Go-Karting and Augmented Reality. This new and highly innovative experience has players burning rubber around an infinite number of tracks in a digitally projected world, while their vehicle interacts with the virtual track, and any challenges other players might “launch” their way.

The lack of physical obstacles on the track, and anti-collision technology, means helmets and driving suits are not required, making CHAOS KARTS the ultimate fun-fuelled experience for everyone aged 13 and above.

Using state-of-the-art technology, the karts will be kitted out with features to produce real life sensations and reactions that will immerse competitors fully into the ride of their life. The experience comes complete with varying circuit designs, pumping music and most importantly, usable in-kart power-ups and weapons that will allow players to ‘battle’ right up to the finishing line.

Tom Lionetti-Maguire, is the CEO & Founder of Little Lion Entertainment, who made The Crystal Maze Experiences that burst onto the scene in 2016 – we are still obsessed with central London immersive gaming experience.

Tom who is also the Founder of CHAOS KARTS, said: “We are so excited to be launching this brand-new attraction, and especially to be doing so this summer. Creating a real-life version of a videogame has been an obsession for some time and we are delighted to have cracked it. Every time you play it, the adrenaline, the pure elation of it… it still surprises me every time.

“The gamification of experiences is a phenomenon that is here to stay, and this is the purest distillation of it… it’s a game and an experience, wrapped up in a whole load of silliness, with a sprinkling of nostalgia for good measure. CHAOS KARTS is game changer. All this and opening in time for a summer of fun that we so desperately deserve, is frankly a dream come true!”

Our inner child is so incredibly pumped to CHAOS KARTS out. And it’s super close to the City, located right by Brick Lane, so it’s made for after work hangs. It will likely book out fast too. So, nab yourself a spot now.
