The new facility - open as of 11 a.m. today - is located at 1255 Roswell Road, in the extensively, exhaustively renovated former Burlington Coat Factory location. It's a rock's throw from the Big Chicken and across the street from the Harry's Whole Foods.

The new location offers "Sodi RTX electric karts, two Andretti designed multi-level tracks, boutique bowling and laser tag. The arcade area will offer more than 120 video games complete with a redemption center ... a challenging ropes course, X D 7D Motion Theater and CXC racing simulators featuring iRacing."

Mario Andretti, along with Marco Andretti, Michael, John and Jarett Andretti, attended the recent VIP night. Luda and Marco are pals and christened the race track with some friendly competition.
