A new gaming facility set to open in the Katy area this year will offer more than 80,000 square feet of fast-paced entertainment such as electric super-karts, arcade games and virtual reality attractions.
Andretti Indoor Karting & Games will open March 3 at 1230 Grand West Boulevard, Katy, according to a release. Established in 2001, the Orlando-based company's newest Texas location is seeking to fill approximately 350 positions before its grand opening.
Attractions include a two-story laser tag battlefield, more than 80 state-of-the-art arcade games, an indoor high adventure ropes course, virtual reality games and high-tech mini-golf.
The Katy location will feature a Food Truck Plaza with American, Italian and Asian food options, sit down dining and a dessert bar. Two bars will offer a selection of craft beer and specialty cocktails and will feature several large HD TVs for watching sports games. The facility will also serve as an event space and offers more than 4,600 square feet of space for corporate events, birthday parties and special occasions.
A job fair for the new location will be held Jan. 15-Feb. 21 at the Best Western Premier Energy Corridor. Job fair hours run 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays. The facility is looking to hire positions for game and attraction attendants, culinary, janitorial, mechanics and more. Applicants must be at least 18 years old. For more information, click here.
