It's virtually impossible to not love Chaos Karts Manchester.

Ever wished for real life Mario Kart in the UK? We know we have. That dream just might be about to become a reality, as Old Granada studios is now home to Chaos Karts, the country's first live-action video game experience. 

This attraction combines physical racing with augmented reality, allowing you to zip round digitally projected tracks, going head-to-head with their friends. There's a near-infinite number of maps to choose from, so every visit is bound to bring something unique - whether that's zooming across a desert or travelling through the stars. 

There are no physical obstacles on the course, and the karts are equipped with anti-collision technology, making this high-octane adventure perfectly safe. The vehicles are built to replicate real-life sensations and react physically to virtual power-ups and 'weapons', adding an exciting element of battle among your group. This cutting-edge technology allows for gaming like never before, and is sure to bring out the competitive side in us all.

You can find Chaos Karts at Lower Byrom Street, M3 4FP and they're open seven days a week. Love this? Check out our guide to fun activities for big kids in Manchester and sign up to our newsletter.
