A massive indoor gaming and entertainment facility nestled in west Houston will reopen to the public Wednesday under several new safety initiatives due to the pandemic.
Staff are required to wear face masks and will be screened prior to each shift. Guests are encouraged to wear masks, and masks will be provided to those who agree to wear them. Several attractions will remain closed, including the ropes course and some arcade games.
Visitors can expect to see protective shields at registers, hand sanitizing stations, hygiene signage and social distancing floor markings throughout the venue. The dining areas will have reduced tables and chairs to comply with occupancy requirements, Contact-less transactions, including online waivers for games, will be encouraged.
The company is amping up its cleaning protocols with a dedicated sanitization team that will routinely clean all equipment and high-contact areas.
Disposable masks will be provided for guests wishing to play the virtual reality games and a new cleaning process has been issued for the karting helmets, which will be disinfected after each ride.
There is no general admission fee to enter, and all games are pay-as-you-go. Andretti Indoor Karting and Games is located at 1230 Grand West Boulevard, Katy.
