We’re excited to host the Carytown Burgers & Fries Food Truck this Friday (1/13) from 5 to 9 at G-Force Karts!
G-Force is all about delivering the best all around experience in RVA, from karting to our new NERF experience to laser tag, paintball and archery tag. Our claim to fame is “authentic.”
Carytown Burgers & Fries is all about delivering outstanding, fresh, delicious burgers. “Authentic” certainly describes the unique burgers, fries and approach that Carytown brings to each and every customer.
Sounds like a match made in heaven, right!

If you were born in the winter, or have a loved one who was, you know the struggle every year to find something fun to do for a birthday party. After all, summer babies can just have some friends over for a barbecue or invite everybody to a day in the park. With a winter birthday party, you’ve got to contend with the cold and generally worse weather.
So if you’re frustrated, we don’t blame ya. However… we do have a solution: G-Force Karts!
The Premier Winter Birthday Party Destination in Richmond
G-Force Karts is the premier winter birthday party destination in Richmond. We don’t just do birthday parties on the side: our setup is structured to accommodate birthday parties small, large, and everywhere in between. Our fully indoor facility features multiple adrenaline pumping activities to choose from, and great package deals if you want to try them all! Here’s a quick rundown of the activities you can enjoy at G-Force this winter:
Our go kart racing experience is the best in Richmond, hands down. Our authentic, gas powered karts power you across our challenging and fun track at speeds that will have you pushed back in your seat. This is the real, down and dirty racing experience. Electric karts on sterile tracks just can’t compare.
Indoor paintball at G-Force is a ridiculously fast paced experience. From the start of the round, you better be on the move. If you can’t sprint from cover to cover fast, you’re just asking to get mercilessly gunned down by your friends. Our paintball experience uses foam balls, so there’s no mess… but don’t let that fool you. You’ll know when you get hit!
Archery tag is a little slower paced, but it more than makes up for it in strategy. The rules are similar to dodgeball, but with bows and arrows. With limited arrows (these are foam tipped and not one bit painful to be hit with) at your disposal and a huge focus on precision, you’ll need to coordinate with your team every round or you’ll be defeated.
Our laser tag experience has always been fun… but we have taken it to the next level. We have completely renovated our laser tag arena to provide an even tighter tactical experience. We’ve also completely replaced those old packs and rifles with with state-of-the-art lightweight laser tag equipment. This stuff is cutting-edge! While the standard laser tag experience is the best in Richmond, we have a ton of settings to tweak and game modes to choose from.
As you can see, we’ve got a lot to offer for your winter birthday. No matter which activity you choose, you and your guests will have a blast. The best part? You don’t have to choose just one!
Winter Birthday Party Packages
Whether you want to focus on one activity, split your time between a couple, or try them all, we’ve got a package catered just for you. After all, it’s your birthday! Instead of going into them all here, just head over to our birthday party packages page and take a look. If you’d like to customize, let us know.

The Most Tactical Laser Tag in VA!
G-Force is once again revolutionizing the game! We’re not content with being Richmond’s premier destination for karting, lasertag, paintball, and archery tag… we intend to stay at the top! That being said; we’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Laser Tag Pro to offer the most tactical laser tag in VA!
We spared no expense on our new equipment, and the result is an all new, next level, tactical lasertag experience! We’ve replaced our entire arsenal with state-of-the-art laser rifles… the Battle Rifle Pro! The Battle Rifle Pro features a futuristic bullpup design, tight ergonomics, great handling, and even a red dot sight for increased accuracy! These rifles also have:
- Health Display
- Multiple Game Modes (like Zombie Mode, free for all, etc)
On top of that, each one of these weapons can be set to a certain weapon profile when we do different game modes. Like in real life, these weapon settings have pros and cons. See them all below:
- Assault Rifle
- Burst Rifle
- Heavy Machine Gun
- Battle Cannon
- Assault Laser
We didn’t stop there, though. We’ve also equipped another huge upgrade! We’ve also removed entirely the packs of old… now all you have to wear is the headband pictured here!
No more heavy and cumbersome packs with uncomfortable straps. Just put one of our new sensors on your head, and you’re good to go!
Finally, we’ve added multi functional utility boxes to our battlefield. These boxes add an intricate layer to the tactical experience. Depending on the game mode, their function changes! Sometimes they are ammo, medic and respawn stations. Sometimes they’re “Special Weapons” stations, where you can pick up incredible upgrades to your rifle! Sometimes, they’re the objective, that you need to capture, kill, or extract. The possibilities are endless!
Tons of Game Modes and Customization
So having new equipment is obviously awesome… especially the upgrades we got! We wanted to further push the envelope though, and that’s why we’ve added a ton of new game modes to our new tactical laser tag experience!
We’re in the process of fine-tuning the game modes, so they might not all be functional immediately. However, we plan on having the following game modes playable soon: multi-team, deathmatch, king of the hill, zombie mode, free for all, capture the flag, rescue the hostage, eliminate the VIP.
Comprehensive Stat Tracking
New equipment and new game modes are awesome, but we’ve added one final upgrade to the our laser tag experience: comprehensive stat tracking! Our new system tracks everything: accuracy, kills, deaths, score, etc. You get a report at the end, as well!
The Callsign App
We didn’t stop with just adding the comprehensive stat tracking features above… like most things we do at G-Force, we took it to the next level!
Callsign is a FREE companion app that allows you to sign into our system with a custom call sign, all while tracking your stats in real time and sending them to your phone! This app is free and simple to use. Just walk in to G-Force and open the app, and we’ll swipe you into our system.
Click below to download the Callsign app, or just search for “Callsign” on the app store!

You spoke. We listened. Unlimited Laser Tag is back at G-Force Karts!
We’re Always Hungry To Improve
At G-Force Karts, we pride ourselves on constant innovation in the field of the entertainment experience. From constantly evaluating and improving our indoor karts, to improvising and engineering new track layouts, to new competitive experiences (think indoor paintball and archery tag), we’ve never been the type to rest on our laurels.
This is, in part, why we continue to win awards (like the 2016 Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor) based on reviews from our customers. Our hunger to constantly improve is what makes us a top destination in Virginia for thrill seekers and fun lovers alike. We’re never satisfied with status quo. You shouldn’t be either.
As it relates to our laser tag experience, we upgraded all our laser tag packs, guns and team setups last year with new state of the art technology. The
packs are lighter and lower profile, and more comfortable. These packs also allow for increased freedom of movement. We also replaced the “old school” bulky, two-handed rifles with sleek and accurate handheld pistols.
Change is never easy, though! We took the time to tune the equipment and fine-tune the experience, in order to deliver on our promise of pulse-pounding, adrenaline pumping fun.
The end result is a completely fresh yet entirely familiar laser tag experience. We know you’ll love every minute of it. So, whats the “deal” you ask?
Unlimited Laser Tag at G-Force Karts

Planning a company holiday party can be a difficult task! We know how much of a challenge you might face in coming up with an exciting company Christmas party idea. It’s gotta be one that everyone at your office will enjoy! It is important to throw a successful company holiday party to boost morale at the end of a long year and to show appreciation for your employees.
We’ve put together a few “how to” key points you might consider in making sure your company holiday party is sure to please!
Corporate Christmas Party Themes
Have a theme for your office Christmas party! Themed parties can get your employees engaged in the party by dressing up and attending the party in character.
You might consider something different than your standard “holiday party theme”. Maybe, throw a TV show themed party. Maybe an 80’s throwback party or some kind of crazy murder mystery theme. The key is to mix it up from year to year! The “same old, same old” approach can get tiring after a while. When it gets tiring, employees find reasons to skip the event you spent so much time planning.
Unique Office Party Ideas
We can’t stress enough the importance of getting way from the “norm” as far as the venue for your holiday party. Don’t throw the typical, boring company holiday party at the office. A few casseroles and “adult beverages” will not spice this office party up any more than last year. Do something different!
A huge part of your challenge in planning an exciting company holiday party is deciding on a good location. You might consider attending a brewery, reserving a room at a nice restaurant, or renting out a fun venue like G-Force Karts.
During the month of December, places like G-Force get slammed busy with Christmas parties, so if you are considering a venue like ours, we highly recommend you plan ahead this year!
Now call us biased but in our experience, one of the most successful unique office party ideas is renting out a room or venue at a facility where your employees can engage in activities together — like G-Force Karts! Nice dinners are appreciated but employees can let loose and have fun by participating in competitive go-karting races, laser tag challenges, indoor paintball or archery tag! Where else can you have this kind of experience?
At G-Force Karts, we tailor company holiday parties to meet your expectations and fit your company’s needs. We have holiday specials for corporate parties that are suitable for any group of ten or more people. You can rent out a corporate room or rent out the entire track for the night to make the event exclusive for your employees. We even offer trophies for titles such as, “Best Driver”, “Worst Driver”, or we can customize an experience completely unique to your company outing.
Team Building Games
Team building is a vital factor to consider when planning your company’s annual holiday party. Without a doubt this party is NOT about work but at the same time, holiday parties do present an opportunity for team building. Integrating team-building games into your office Christmas party can help boost excitement level among your employees while celebrating the holidays.
At G-Force Karts, team building is an integral part of our corporate party experience. We incorporate any company ideas for team building games into our corporate event packages, based on what you feel works best. While we can’t change our activities, we can tailor them to fit your needs. At the end of the day, at G-Force Karts the name of the game is fun!
Although your previous company holiday parties might not have been something to boast about, you can change that this year! Throwing your company holiday party at a venue like G-Force can help your office break away from the standard, forgettable Christmas party. Let your employees know you appreciate them and rent out a room at G-Force Karts for this year’s company holiday party!

How to Play Archery Tag
The battle has begun. Your heart is pounding. You crouch below a barrier, listening, waiting for the first volley of arrows. One grazes the space just above your head. You gather yourself upright, draw your own arrow, and aim carefully before loosing it towards your opponent. No, this is not a scene from Hunger Games or a 12th century battleground. This is Archery Tag, the newest extreme sport that lets you release your inner Katniss. Keep reading to learn how to play archery tag! (more…)

G-Force Stands Atop the Karting World
We are super excited, honored and proud of our standing as one of the only indoor tracks in the United States to offer a two seat kart! There are hundreds of indoor karting tracks nationwide, but Sodi saw fit to test these products right here in Richmond, at G-Force Karts. If that doesn’t tell you what G-Force is all about, nothing will!
The “Sodi 2-Drive” Two Seat Go Kart
The two seater kart, known as the “Sodi 2-Drive” is ideal for younger, newer drivers and as a great training tool for racers too young to drive on their own (hey dad… get that young’en ready now, man!).
Our Sodi 2- Drives allows younger drivers to experience the thrill, speed and feel of indoor karting, while offering the driver the ability to restrict the passengers ability to have any real impact on turning, speed or performance. These karts are state of the art, featuring vented disc brakes, huge, beefy axles, and 4-point restraint system. If you so choose, we can enable steering from either the driver or the passenger side, but from what we’ve seen so far…we will likely not activate the passenger side all that often.
These Karts Fly!
Even though the Sodi 2-Drive is purpose built as a training kart, it’s still got a ton of power under the hood! They easily maintain the same speed and control as our other karts.
G-Force has always been on the cutting edge of innovation in the world of karting. We’ve always experimented with new equipment, racetrack configurations, karts, and anything that might improve your overall experience and racing performance.
Stop in, take a test drive in these unique double seat karts, and help G-Force usher in the next generation of high performance go kart racing! Please contact G-Force Karts online with any questions on our two seater karts, or call us at (804) 228-0188. As always… “Experience the Thrill of Racing” at Richmond’s best indoor karting track, G-Force Karts!
At G-Force Karts, we’re proud of our standing at the top of the indoor karting industry In Richmond! For over 13 years, we’ve maintained a standard of excellence in product, experience and customer care that few nationwide can claim.
Our high speed, gas powered karts deliver an exciting and intense racing experience, but we don’t stop there. With indoor paintball and laser tag, G-Force in Richmond offers three intense activities that will surely keep your heart pumping.
That being said, we are always looking to improve upon your overall experience. As new technologies emerge and new indoor experiences arise, we stay hungry to maintain our position in your mind as the go-to source for indoor excitement in Virginia.
It’s lonely at the top, but hey, we like it that way!
With Success Comes Competition
With success comes competition! “Me too” karting places are popping up all over the country to compete for a piece of the large indoor karting market, and Richmond is no exception. Since indoor karting hit the United States about 18 years ago, the industry continues to see an influx of new karting tracks. In fact, almost 100 indoor karting facilities operate in the United States in 2014, and that number continues to grow.
Some of these new tracks are run very well by folks who know karting and racing inside and out, while other tracks struggle. It all depends on ownership. At G-Force, our ownership team has 13+ years of tweaking, experimenting, and improving our facility. That’s what keeps us at the top.
Just like anything worth doing for a living, it takes several years to truly understand your product or service. Indoor karting is no exception. Experts say it takes 10,000 hours to truly master something. We can say with confidence: we have truly mastered the art of indoor karting!
Competition Breeds Innovation
With new competition comes creativity, innovation, and a need to constantly adapt and improve our product and experience. At G-Force, we embrace the need to constantly improve, hence over the past few years we’ve added new karts, updated our indoor karting track, added new barriers, removed our inflatables in favor of our hugely popular indoor paintball, re-modeled our lounge area, and improved the all around customer experience.
Sleep tight in knowing we’ve got some big improvements coming that will change everything you thought you knew about G-Force Karts. Enough said for now…
Even with all the improvements and upgrades, we never lost sight of what is truly important to our long standing success and reputation: Your Customer Experience! We pride ourselves on maintaining an extremely high standard in racing excellence, which shows in our enormous membership base, high membership renewal rates and repeat business. Truth is, if you didn’t appreciate the value and overall experience of what we offer, you wouldn’t come back!
Adjustable Pedals, Seats and Weights
In keeping with theme of the overall customer experience, we do offer a few racing options at G-Force that few indoor tracks nationwide can claim.
First, we provide an 8 minute race experience for every race. This is HUGE for us! Many karting tracks will charge the same amount as G-Force per race, but only give you a 5-6 minutes of actual racing time. We could certainly do the same thing, and we’d probably make more money, but you, as our customer, ultimately would feel slighted. It’s in our best interest to run 8 minute races. Trust us: if you haven’t raced here before, 8 minutes on a high speed indoor kart track like G-Force seems like 30 minutes!
Next, we really feel strongly that adjustable settings on our karts are an absolute must in order to customize the racing experience for each racer. When you sit in one of our gas powered high speed karts, you can adjust both your pedals and your seat, so that you can ride as comfortably as possible at high speeds.
We also counter-balance (ie weight balance) our karts for the more competitive racers. If a trophy or even just bragging rights are on the line, you want an equal playing field. We can add or remove weight from your kart so that you and your buddy/challenger are on equal footing. For our popular events like ironman challenges and enduro races, weight balancing is crucial.
How Can We Improve Your Experience?
While we know we could rest on our laurels as an undisputed karting leader, we won’t do that. That is not what got us here and that is not how we will continue to dominate the indoor karting market. We want to keep our place at the top.
That being said, we welcome your feedback! How can we improve your experience? If you’ve raced at other tracks, how do they compare to G-Force? Did they offer any special value, experience or thrill that we could consider also?
You, our core customer, are our top priority. Let us know how we can continue to deliver an excellent racing, paintball and lasertag experience, and we will never stop looking for ways to improve.

The pure rush, intensity and excitement you feel when race, play paintball or lasertag at G-Force Karts in Richmond is an authentic and genuine experience unlike anything else! (more…)
If you are reading this, you probably already know that G-Force Karts is known throughout Richmond for our incredibly high powered indoor gas karts, Jungle-themed lasertag arena, and Richmond’s only indoor paintball experience!
What you might not know is why we run gasoline powered go karts, in comparison with the option of running electric go karts. Just like with your automobile, there can be a substantial difference in how a gas kart vs. electric kart rides, feels, performs and lasts. With top Super-Karts speeds of up 45 miles per hour, all of our huge fleet of gasoline powered karts will truly test your ability to skillfully navigate a well oiled machine around an indoor race track laced with hairpin turns! That being said, both gas and electric karts are, without question, tons of fun. However, for us, there are some key sticking points as to why, just like the big boys in Nascar or IndyCar, we choose to run gas powered karts!
We are proud to announce three “Unlimited” offers (one for unlimited racing and one for unlimited paintball)! We’ve run unlimited karting for some time now, but not all of our customers know about these great deals. On the flip side, we are just now launching unlimited paintball! See below for a quick breakdown of our special unlimited pricing specials: (more…)

Take a look at G-Force’s guide on how to clean a paintball marker!
How to Clean a Paintball Gun
You may consider cleaning your paintball marker one of the more boring tasks when it comes to paintball. However, it may be one of the most important things you do. Keeping your paintball marker clean and well-kept can make all of the difference out on the field. Having your gun jam or shooting inaccurately can only lead to catastrophe for you and your team.
What is exactly the best way to clean your paintball marker? Below, we’ve outlined a step by step guide that easily outlines and breaks down the steps in cleaning a paintball gun. A small disclaimer before we begin… These are general guidelines to follow; each gun is made differently and may require unique/different steps to clean your gun. If your owner’s manual says something different than what is listed below, then follow those directions. We don’t want you messing up your gun and having more expenses because of our blog post. This is just a helpful guide. (more…)
When it comes to summer birthday party ideas, look no further than G Force Karts! Summer is a perfect time to book your birthday party with us. Why? Plain and simple: supply and demand. Summer is slower for birthdays, so as a parent you are much more likely to be able to reserve exactly what you want, when you want…with less lead time!
During fall and winter, we are just slam packed with birthday parties all weekend, every weekend. Sometimes we end up opening early on the weekends just to accommodate demand. Point being: summer is not quite as crazy, which is great for you! No standing in line outside at a hot amusement park, no “run of the mill” pool parties…just pure adrenaline, excitement and intensity! (more…)
