Karting

Our most popular attraction, and for good reason! Our high-speed karts fly around our tightly tuned racetrack at speeds you didn’t think possible! After the race, you’ll receive full printouts of your lap times so you can crown a birthday winner!

Laser Tag

We’ve revolutionized our laser tag experience, and there’s really only one word we can use to describe it: AWESOME! We have brand new, state of the art equipment and stat tracking that will make your birthday party idea the best ever!

Archery Tag

If you’re looking for something a little slower paced and less competitive, but more strategic and just as fun, Archery tag is for you! Played like dodgeball, this is a great choice for younger kids and smaller groups.

and our newest experience… NERF!

NERF at G-Force has blown up! If you remember those NERF battles you had as a kid, you’ll know how fun they can be. Well, we took it to the next level! We have a huge arsenal of NERF guns and an unlimited supply of darts and ammo, as well as a great indoor arena to wage your NERF war in.

Great Combination Packages

These all sound pretty great, right? They are! Each and every activity at G-Force is a total blast. That’s why we don’t make you choose just one! Head over to our Birthday Party Pricing and Packages page to see all of the options you have for your big birthday party at G-Force!

A Private Party Room

Just as important as the activities is the down time to celebrate the big day. It just wouldn’t be a good birthday party idea if we didn’t offer you a place to open some gifts and eat some cake. That’s why, with all birthday party packages, we offer exclusive use of our private birthday party room!

PS – We can also provide food and drinks on request!

It Sounds Like a Great Birthday Party Idea, Right? Don’t Wait!

Birthday parties at G-Force are awesome. The downside is, in order to make each birthday party special, we have limited availability! If this sounds like a great birthday party idea to you, don’t hesitate – head on over to the Birthday Party Request page and book your date today!

Have Your Winter Birthday at G-Force Karts!

December 13, 2016

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:

Authentic, Gas-Powered Go-Kart Racing:

DSC_0387Our 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.

Strategic, Coordinated Archery Tag:

DSC_0082Archery 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.

Tactical Laser Tag

gforcelasertaggunOur 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.

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
