Views from the New Track

June 27, 2019

It’s been a few months since we opened our awesome new outdoor racing track at the Richmond Raceway Complex, and we’ve had an absolute blast so far! The track is much longer, then karts are faster, and the overall racing experience is better. Our launch hasn’t been without a few speed bumps (we’re looking at you, weekend rainstorms), but in all we’d have to call it a success.

As they say, though: pictures and videos are worth a thousand words. Check out some views from the new track below!

VIP Night Hype Video

Before we closed our old location, we had a fun contest: the top 100 fastest racers in the final month before we moved would earn themselves a free VIP night at the new track.

As you can see, these guys loved the new experience. These folks are our die-hards… the guys you will be challenging month-in and month-out for the fastest lap times. So if you wanna go fast? Be like them!

Pictures from the track

Track updates/What’s to Come

As always, we place a very high value on the feedback from our racers. We’ve been listening, and it’s been invaluable so far for improving the new track. Since opening, we’ve updated our hours (see the new hours here) and relaunched everyone’s favorite special, 3 for $39 on Thursdays. The experience will continue to evolve. We have plans to reveal new experiences and accommodations when the time is right.

The New Track is a Huge Hit!

As you can see, the experience is much different these days! However, it still maintains what you’ve come to love G-Force for and that’s an authentic, adrenaline pumping, ultra-high speed racing experience.

If you haven’t checked out the new track yet… what are you waiting for? Come down, get to practicing, and then set your new personal best lap times!

Questions about the new experience? Get in touch! You can reach us on Facebook, contact us online, or just give us a ring at 804-228-0188!

#ExperienceTheThrill #EveryDayIsRaceDay

G-Force Karts: Richmond’s Perfect Rainy Day Getaway!

February 23, 2019

This time of year can be a drag. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Eve, and Valentine’s day have come and gone, and all that’s left is the cold and the rain. Fortunately, you don’t have to let it get you down! G-Force Karts offers the perfect, all natural, rain-free, remedy for Richmond’s Rainy Day blues… a shot of adrenaline, straight to the veins!

Indoor, High-Speed Racing, Laser Tag, Arcade, NERF, and More!

G-Force has a ton of great activities, for adrenaline junkies of all ages… and our entire facility is fully indoors! Bring your kids, bring your date, and bring your skills, because everyone has something to do at G-Force.

Karting: indoor karting track features the fastest and most authentic (gas-powered karts only!) racing experience in Richmond.

Laser Tag: A tactical, exciting shooting experience featuring awesome weapons and gear – no lugging around heavy packs and clunky laserpistols in our arena!

Arcade: We’ve got a great variety of the classic arcade games, and plenty of ways to earn tickets for in-house prize redemption. Great for downtime in between laser tag matches and heats!

NERF: Ever wanted to have a full-on NERF war with your buddies? Now you can! Our NERF arena features an arsenal of NERF weapons to choose from. A kid’s favorite!

Archery Tag: Skill and precision dominate in archery tag, which plays a bit like dodgeball. With real bows and arrows (foam tipped and completely safe), you’ll have to channel your inner archer to come away with a win.

Food and Drink: We have an in-house traditional pizza oven, kitchen, fully stocked fridge, soda fountain, and beers (both craft and domestic). Whether you’re thirsty or hungry (or just celebrating a victory!), we’ve got you covered.

Experience The Thrill of Racing” at G-Force Karts!

Gasoline Karts: The Authentic Racing Experience!

January 18, 2019

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, apocalypse-themed lasertag arena, and Richmond’s only NERF 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!

Company Holiday Party Ideas

September 29, 2018

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 Thanksgiving or 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’ll make it easy for you – this year, host your holiday corporate event at G-Force Karts!

Not Just Another Holiday Party!

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… book an event at the best part venue in Richmond… G-Force Karts!

During October, November, and December, places like G-Force get slammed busy with Holiday 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, NERF/NERF Rivals, the arcade, and 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. 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 Thanksgiving or Christmas party can help boost excitement level among your employees while celebrating the holidays.

Company Holiday PartyAt 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 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!

The winner of this competition can truly call themselves #TheFastest!

The Details:


 

Price

  • $50 (paid ahead of time, $55 paid night of) for 3 special format races.

Racing Format

League night features a balanced and exciting competition format. We’ve set it up this way to ensure that it’s the driver, not the kart, that is #TheFastest!

  • Drivers are assigned a kart through a random drawing
  • Each driver will enter their karts and run a 25 lap practice and qualifying race that will determine starting position
  • Drivers line up in staggered positioning for a standing start
  • The race starts and they run 25 laps to the finish
  • Winner is determined by position not best lap
  • At the end of first race, drivers pull into the pits for a 5 min break
  • Drivers invert karts based on final position in the second race
  • Each driver’s finishes in the two competition races are averaged to determine the winner!

As you can see, it’s going to be competitive!

Remaining League Night Dates

This season is over!  Keep an eye out for the details regarding the next season!

Sign Up For League Night

If you’re interested in joining us on the third Thursday of each month for League Night, get in touch! We need a minimum of 7 pre-registered, pre-paid racers each week for league night, and we ask that you sign up as far ahead of time as possible so that we can plan ahead. You can do so by getting in touch with G-Force at 804-228-0188 during normal business hours, by contacting us online, or by messaging us on Facebook. We prefer a call though, and pre-payment saves you $5!

We look forward to relaunching league night, and we look forward to finding out who is #TheFastest!

Zombie Battle Nights!

July 21, 2017

Zombie Battle NightOur June “Black Ops”style Laser Tag competition was such a huge hit that we figured….why not keep the fun rolling throughout the summer? We asked you (our customers) what kind of laser tag event you wanted, and we heard from a ton of customers who love our “Zombie/Infection” game mode! You asked for it, and we delivered with our new “Zombie Battle Night” laser tag event!

Zombie Battle Night at G-Force Karts

The objective is simple – kill the zombies and don’t get killed. Once the zombie kills you, you become part the zombie hoard!

At the start of the round, one of your comrades will be infected with the zombie virus, and mutate into the Alpha Zombie! The Alpha will attempt to kill the other players, and each soldier that falls victim to the Alpha is reanimated as a zombie themselves!

The soldiers, armed only with shotguns, will try to fend off the growing zombie horde. You get points for each kill, and the round ends once everyone has been infected. You automatically win the match if you survive the whole 10 minute round!

Can you survive the dangerous zombie infection?

Briefing

Pay attention, soldier! Here is what you need to know about Zombie Battle Nights at G-Force Karts:

Who: Open to solo players and groups… but we recommend you roll with a crew to increase your chances of survival! Just be warned – if your friends get infected… you’ll have to take them down!

What: Zombie Battle Nights!

Where: The now zombie-infested G-Force Karts Laser Tag Arena.

When: Friday Nights from 8p-11p

Why: Kill zombies. Win prizes. Have fun! It’s a great deal on most thrilling laser tag experience with the most sophisticated laser tag equipment in Richmond

The cost is $45 per player, which includes all-you-can-play plus a FREE $5 arcade card. After all, you’ll need at least a few minutes of R&R between battles with the living dead!

Get In On The Fun!

Play your role in protecting mankind from the crazy Zombie Infestation at G-Force Karts this Summer!

Head up to G-Force on Friday nights at 8pm and take down as many zombies as you can… just make sure that you don’t become one yourself!

Announcing: Tactical Laser Tag in VA at G-Force Karts!

August 17, 2016

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, NERF, 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!

Next-Level Equipment

Tactical lasertagWe 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
  • Vibration
  • 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
  • SMG
  • Heavy Machine Gun
  • Shotgun
  • Sniper
  • Battle Cannon
  • Assault Laser

DSC_0364We 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!

Laser TagFinally, 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

Laser Tag in VASo 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

Laser Tag in VANew 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!

Unlimited Laser Tag is Back!

May 31, 2016

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 NERF and archery tag), we’ve never been the type to rest on our laurels.

Trip Advisor Certificate of ExcellenceThis 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.

battle-rifle-pictureAs 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

Starting immediately, Unlimited Laser Tag is back at G-Force Karts!

Here is all you need to know:

  • Who: Everyone!
  • What: Unlimited Laser Tag for $40
  • Where: G-Force Karts
  • When: Every Friday and Saturday Nights (7p-11p) 
  • Why: Really? 

Enjoy 4 hours of all-you-can play laser tag, twice a week for just $40!

Our standard laser tag session is 10 minutes long and costs $10. We’ll leave the math up to you, but you don’t need to be a mathematician to figure out that $40 for fours hours of Unlimited Laser Tag is a sweet deal. The real questions is this: you up for the challenge?

Our laser tag experience is the best in Richmond and we’re happy to once again offer our Unlimited Weekend Night special.

The packs are charged and the arena is ready…are you?

2 Seat Go Karts at G-Force Karts!

July 18, 2014

Ever wanted to share the G-Force experience with a friend or loved one, or show a rookie the tracks? With G-Force’s new two seat go kart, you can!

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!

It’s Lonely at the Top

June 13, 2014

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 NERF and laser tag, G-Force in Richmond offers plenty of 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 NERF experience, 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…

Customer Value 

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!

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, NERF, and lasertag experience, and we will never stop looking for ways to improve.

Join us at the Top

Call us anytime and let us know how we’re doing! Call (804) 228-0188 or contact G-Force Karts online. Regardless of whether you’re new to karting or a seasoned vet, know that you can truly “Experience the Thrill of Racing” at G-Force Karts!
