Andretti Indoor Karting and Games will be opening its newest location on May 13, according to a press release this week, as well as having a grand opening celebration with giveaways to the first 100 guests on May 15. This is the second Andretti location in Georgia and the sixth nationwide.
“We’re always striving to challenge ourselves on how we can take our entertainment experience to that next level,” Mario Andretti, racecar driver and co-owner of the entertainment venue, said in the release. “I believe the guests at our new Buford Andretti Indoor Karting & Games location will see that it truly represents the Andretti family’s commitment to constantly exceed expectations and deliver the absolute best in everything we do.”
Located at The Exchange at Gwinnett, a $350 million mixed-use development near the Mall of Georgia and next door to Top Golf, this Buford location is the sixth Andretti Indoor Karting & Games location nationwide. The others are in Marietta, Ga., Orlando, Fla., San Antonio, The Colony, and Katy, Texas.
“Our goal has always been to provide an exceptional entertainment experience from the décor of the building to the track and attractions,” Edison “Eddie” Hamann, managing partner of Andretti Indoor Karting & Games, said. “By offering the highest minimum hourly pay rate in the industry, we are continuing to deliver on that promise, hiring the best of the best employees for the highest level of service for our guests!”
In addition to the high-speed multi-level electric karting track, guests will enjoy over 100 arcade games, two-level laser tag arena, professional CXC racing simulators, Hologate VR experience, 10 duckpin bowling lanes, the interactive Andretti 7D experience, full-service made-from-scratch restaurant and bar, and more than 10,000 square feet of premium event and meeting space.
“The Andretti Indoor Karting & Games team are making a major investment in our community,” Nick Masino, president & CEO of the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce, said. “This entertainment destination will not only bring an exciting experience to thrill-seekers and people looking for an upscale place to relax and host events, but it’s also creating 360 jobs locally. We’re thrilled at this win for all of us.”
