Octane Raceway To Open $800k VR Arena

Free-roam multiplayer VR is coming to Arizona this Memorial Day.

As if Octane Raceway wasn’t cool enough, the famous high speed go kart facility has teamed up with Australian location-based VR company Zero Latency to add yet another attraction to it’s facility in the form of an advanced multiplayer virtual reality arena.

Officially opening this Memorial Day in Scottsdale, Arizona, Velocity VR puts players in an empty 3,500 square foot play area devoid of any physical objects. Friends will strap on a VR headset and backpack-mounted PC, load there weapons and head to the battlefield in an unrestricted wireless experience.

The first game available to the public upon opening, Survival, requires players to team up and work together to survive (oh hey I get it) waves of flesh-hungry zombies in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. More experiences for the new facility have already been confirmed, but no date or details regarding which games have yet been announced. With 3,500 square feet and no cables, there’s no limit to the amount of unique virtual reality experiences this facility could accommodate. 

“Octane Raceway is committed to the most exciting and immersive experiences for our customers that leave them awestruck and wanting more,” says Scott Sanders, CEO of Octane Raceway. “Velocity VR falls in line with that commitment, and will truly be a unique and memorable attraction.”

The experience will cost $40 on weekdays and $45 on the weekend. For more information on how you can ride go karts and then shoot up hordes of the undead with your bro’s, head to
