Chaos Karts | Electric Go-Karting, In Shoreditch
So, this is actually a bit nuts.
Back in April 2020 when we were all toying with – and ultimately rejecting – the idea of baking the world’s best sourdough, Tom Lionetti-Maquire (founder of the Crystal Maze Experience) decided that instead of learning how to knit, doing PE with Joe Wicks and drinking excessively for the next year, he’d make an actual real life version of Mario Kart.
Within a few months he had a working concept – bespoke electric go karts with a gun positioned on the front that could be raced around a live computer game simulation located inside a huge, darkened indoor venue. So he invited a few potential backers to come along, put them into their karts and let them race around a (technically unlimited) number of digitally-projected levels. Long story short is that they all loved it, and Chaos Karts was off to the races before you’d even completed Tiger King. And now, having secured a 15,000 sq ft indoor venue in the heart of Shoreditch, you can be off to the races too – because it’s opening to the public on 15th August 2021.
This is a cartoon. You’ll be racing actual people.
The experience (which you can book into solo, or with up to seven friends at a time) lasts for an hour and fifteen minutes, and will see you racing around in a kart that produces real life sensations according to its interactions with the digitally-projected course around it (including the power ups you collect, and the weapons you fire). The risk of crashing into other karts, however, is so negligible – thanks to in built anti-collision technology that slows you down before any contact occurs – that despite driving at speeds of up to 30 kph, no safety gear at all is required…
So no helmet hair on your next date.
NOTE: Chaos Karts is giving up an entire day of preview racing to Nudge Members (you can bring a guest) on Sunday 8th and Monday 9th August – it’s then opening to the public on Saturday 14th August. Not only will you be amongst the first in the world to try this, your tickets will also be heavily discounted (approx 70% off the going rate) but also subject to special terms & conditions, as you’ll need to keep the experience under your hat before their main launch the following Saturday. We’ve now released these tickets to Nudge Members on a first-come-first-served basis – if you’d like to secure two, you can do so here (you can find the password required to access this page within the members’ access box at the top and / or bottom of this page).
