Andretti Indoor Karting and Games, an Orlando-based entertainment facility will bring high-speed electric super karts, bowling, VR gaming, arcade games, a ropes course, unique dining, legendary event space and much more to The Colony when it opens on March 3, 2020 at 10:00am. Named after the legendary racing family, Andretti Indoor Karting and Games offers nearly 100,000 square-feet of nonstop action and family excitement. They are located adjacent to Nebraska Furniture Mart in Warren Buffett’s new and growing Grandscape development.

although the karting seems to be the main draw, I believe the VR games will be on your ‘must-do’ list as well. You literally feel the heat from the virtual fire, and experience the cold rushing air and upwardly raising floor as you’re thrust upwards on a VR platform while shooting double-barrelled guns racking up points! This is beyond awesome!

The First 100 guests will receive a Limited Edition The Colony Opening T-shirt. They will also have Special Opening Drawings for unique prizes such as Free Game Cards, Free Attraction Experiences, $50 Gift Cards, Exclusive Invite for Two to VIP Andretti Day, Two Tickets to a Dallas Renegades Game, Two Tickets to Texas Motor Speedway and a Year of Free Karting! You’ll have THREE chances to win one of these prizes so be sure to visit their E-Club to enter today! PRIZE DRAWINGS: Opening Day, Tuesday, 3/3, at 5:00pm, and on Grand Opening Day, Saturday, 3/7 at 11:00am and 5:00pm.
