Recently plans were announced for a sprawling entertainment center to be added to a Scottsdale go-kart facility.
With the addition of Mavrix, the Octane Raceway complex at the Pavilions at Talking Stick will nearly double in size. According to a press release from parent company Octane Entertainment, it is expected to open in late 2019.
Included in the new space will be 24 bowling lanes, 85 arcade games, laser tag, billiards, dozens of televisions, meeting and event space, along with a 5,000-square-foot restaurant and bar.
Through the use of a shared outdoor games patio, guests will be able to move between Mavrix and Octane Raceway. The track facility has an existing arcade, and game cards will be good at both venues.
Over 50,000 square feet of retail space that used to be Toys R Us next to the raceway will be now used for Mavrix. The company’s footprint will grow on Talking Stick Way near Loop 101 to 110,000 square feet, including Velocity VR, a virtual-reality gaming area that Octane opened in 2017.
“Octane Entertainment has had its sights on expansion, and when the space next door to Octane Raceway became available, it was too good to pass up,” CEO Scott Sanders said in a press release.
