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.

Our 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?
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!

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.
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, 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!
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 NERF 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
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?
Contact G-Force Karts about Unlimited Laser Tag!
Visit the Laser Tag page for a full rundown of our laser tag experience, then prepare for a killer weekend night of Unlimited Laser Tag!
