Chaos Karts the ‘revolutionary’ real life video game experience is coming to Manchester

Chaos Karts, the UK's first live-action video game attraction that merges real-life racing with augmented reality, is set to hit Manchester on September 1st, 2023.

Get ready for the ultimate gaming experience!

The thrilling new experience throws players into a virtual world, living inside a real-life video game, where they can race-battle against their friends, family, rivals, and colleagues.

Combining go-karting and augmented reality, the attraction will have players racing around a virtually infinite number of tracks in a digitally projected world.

The karts will interact with the virtual track, and any challenges from rival players will be “launched” their way.

Equipped with cutting-edge technology, the karts will have the capability to generate genuine physical responses, creating an immersive experience for participants to fully engage in the high-octane excitement of the ride.

The races are designed to be unique, accompanied by pulsating music and innovative in-game power-ups and weapons that can be used in the karts, enabling players to engage in thrilling battles until they reach the finish line.

Set to open close to the Science and Industry Museum and the Crystal Maze Experience, it has been engineered by The Ents Inc, a company known for its innovative and groundbreaking entertainment projects.

The track will have no physical obstacles, and anti-collision technology will be used.

Helmets and driving suits will not be required, making Chaos Karts an enjoyable experience for everyone aged 9 and above.

The immersive racing experience will transport players’ worlds away from every day as they compete against each other to win points and races.

Using state-of-the-art technology, the karts will be equipped with features that produce real-life sensations and reactions, immersing competitors fully into the high-energy thrill ride. Each race will be different in design, complete with pumping music and groundbreaking in-game usable in-kart power-ups with weapons that will allow players to “battle” right up to the finishing line.

Chaos Karts is set to be one of the biggest attractions of 2023, and it’s not just limited to the UK. The opening of the first international Chaos Karts franchise site in Dubai is also slated for the same year.

Partners in Dubai, Rushd Mowjee, said, “This futuristic project is set to take the city by storm, offering an exciting and immersive racing experience like no other.”

Tom Lionetti-Maguire, Founder of Little Lion Entertainment, creators of The Crystal Maze & Tomb Raider Experiences, said of The Ents Inc’s new Chaos Karts attraction: “We are so excited to be launching this brand-new attraction, and especially to be doing so in Manchester & Dubai this year.

“Creating a real-life version of a video game has been an obsession for some time, and Chaos Karts is a real game changer. It’s literally like stepping into your favourite racing game, and I know the people of both these great cities are going to love it.”

Tickets are now on sale for just £15 per person.
