G-Force Karts Richmond
Where are we going today?
If you like wind in your hair, fun, excitement, and getting behind the wheel of a super cool go-kart, then keep reading!
G-Force Karts in Richmond, Virginia, is a great place for those older kids and parents to enjoy some karting fun. You never know - you might be a race car champion in the making.
G-Force Karts are all about pure adrenaline, family fun, and competition (you know you love friendly competition!)
In fact, they aren't JUST karting. They have four amazing experiences that you can enjoy. The first, obviously, is karting. Indoor karting at that. Their 1/4 mile track twists and turns throughout the facility, so drivers - you have to use your skills and out manoeuvre your competitors. Think you are up for it!
The track itself is concrete, and is specially prepared for 1.5 G's of grip. You just have to concentrate on your laps, and not the times, because a computerized timing system is in place so each kart is tracked.
With 10 racers per session, and each session lasting 8 minutes, that's a pretty cool adventure on the road!
Don't forget about the other experiences either! Laser Tag is a great way to practice that coordination and combat skills! G-Force Karts "Apocalypse" theme is a great experience, and will really get that adrenaline going!
Paintball is also available in a climate controlled year round indoor space, and the "paintballs" are tightly compressed foam - so no actual paint! With Archery Tag too, G-Force really knows how to entertain the family.
Good luck folks!

Doing our bit
They want to keep you safe, so they have height and weight restrictions on the cars, as well as provide helmets. You can always bring your own though.
Need a little extra help?
Give them a call to talk about any special needs you have and see what they suggest.
Can I get one of those?
Can you have a birthday at the track? They would LOVE to see you there!.

I went paint-balling with a few friends of mine because our buddy worked there- the Portsmouth location, not the Richmond one. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the game was enjoyable. My friend who works there told us about a buy-one-get-one-free coupon that was available, but if he hadn't informed us of that, we wouldn't have known. It wasn't advertised anywhere that I saw. Overall, though, I had a good experience.

I can't remember the last time I've had so much fun! We had family visiting from out of state and wanted to take them somewhere fun. The staff was so friendly and welcoming! We got to experience the go-karts, paintball, and laser tag; we had a blast. It's fun for all ages; we had people ranging from 21 to 57 years old. Although G-force is great for kids, don't forget it's great for adults too! We love coming here; awesome value for your money! Make this your next birthday party or hang out spot!

Took my family here today (used a Groupon and saved more than half). I will be going back and will pay full price without complaint. Plenty of Kart time for the $$ and the staff was super helpful and even understanding and patient with my 'helmet claustrophobia' and my young daughter having never driven anything with an engine LOL. Great place!

Stay far away on a weekend. Got here at 1150. Ran a race immediately signed up for a second race and it will be 3pm before we ride. They put 3 birthdays ahead of us and the managers lame excuse was that they brought more people. Excuse me but why punish us ? It used be fun and the karts and the track are fine but it simply is no fun waiting hours for a short ride.
