CHAOS KARTS | A combination of Go-Karting and Augmented Reality
Opened in Shoreditch London, UK’s first live action video game experience that combines real-life racing with augmented reality. This all-new attraction throws players into a virtual world, living inside a real life video game to race-battle their friends, family, rivals, colleagues and more. Engineered by The Ents Inc, CHAOS KARTS combines the worlds of Go-Karting and Augmented Reality. This new and highly innovative experience has players burning rubber around an infinite number of tracks in a digitally projected world, whilst their vehicle interacts with the virtual track, and any challenges other players might ‘launch’ their way.
We spotted CHAOS KARTS back in May and wrote about it in our ‘Trends we spotted week 21’ as a kind of new real life Mario Kart experience, but it even looks more spectacular. If you’re going to London with your family, a ride into the gaming world at this place might be lots of fun with older children! For those living in the Netherlands: we will be able to visit a Mario Karts like attraction in Utrecht as well! It will open in September 2021 in House of Karts and it will be named ‘Crazy Karts’.

CHAOS KARTS | The gamification of experiences
The lack of physical obstacles on the track, and anti-collision technology, means helmets and driving suits are not required, making CHAOS KARTS the ultimate fun-fueled experience for everyone aged 13 and above. CHAOS KARTS might be just seconds away from Brick Lane in East London, but it will transport players worlds away from the everyday as they compete against each other to win points and races.
Using state-of-the-art technology, the karts will be kitted out with features to produce real life sensations and reactions that will immerse competitors fully into the ride of their life. The experience comes complete with varying circuit designs, pumping music and most importantly, usable in-kart power-ups and weapons that will allow players to ‘battle’ right up to the finishing line. Check out their video, the text will continue below the video.
CHAOS KARTS is a game changer
Tom Lionetti-Maguire, is the CEO & Founder of Little Lion Entertainment, who made The Crystal Maze Experiences that burst onto the scene in 2016. Tom who is also the Founder of CHAOS KARTS, said: “We are so excited to be launching this brand-new attraction, and especially to be doing so this summer. Creating a real-life version of a videogame has been an obsession for some time and we are delighted to have cracked it. Every time you play it, the adrenaline, the pure elation of it… it still surprises me every time. The gamification of experiences is a phenomenon that is here to stay, and this is the purest distillation of it… it’s a game and an experience, wrapped up in a whole load of silliness, with a sprinkling of nostalgia for good measure. CHAOS KARTS is game changer. All this and opening in time for a summer of fun that we so desperately deserve, is frankly a dream come true!”
Chaos Karts is set to be one of the biggest attractions in 2021 – Pit stop whatever you’re doing fast, and book to avoid disappointment.
