New multi-level electric karting centre – TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre opening soon

New multi-level electric karting centre

The famous Quebec racing driver, Alex Tagliani, is preparing to inaugurate a unique family entertainment centre in Canada in the spring of 2021.

Offering the general public the opportunity to discover an unprecedented selection of state-of-the-art attractions, the TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre will feature nine activities including a combination of three karting tracks, a laser tag game arena, six axe-throwing lanes, six bowling lanes, a Triotech 7D interactive cinema, interactive trampolines, a multi-sensory virtual reality experience, numerous state-of-the-art arcades, and an interactive children’s wall—all under one roof.

For the passionate racing driver, this project represents the realization of a long-cherished dream which puts the spotlight on Karting through an unparalleled racing experience. A set of three tracks on three levels—one for adults, one for children, and a super track combining the two with a length of 0.5 km—will feature a total of six course choices, each of which can be completed clockwise or counterclockwise. Imported from Italy, the go-karts will be 100% electric, silent, non-polluting, and odourless (zero emissions), available in a wide range of sizes. They are the world’s most sophisticated electric models available for the first time in North America.

Featuring a digital steering wheel, bumper-integrated sensors for safety, and a Boost button for accelerated passing, these professional-calibre vehicles carry the prestigious CRG brand name. An artificial intelligence platform will be used to safely manage the go-karts.

Alex Tagliani says that “I think of all the young people and thrill seekers who want to let off steam and get their adrenaline flowing. The TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre will be the new generation recreational centre of choice, an exhilarating place for an outing with friends, colleagues, or family. Even better, I see this project—the first multi-level electric karting centre in Canada—as a springboard to eventually develop talents that will shape future Quebec karting champions.”

Easily accessible via Highway 15, the TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre will occupy 65,000 square feet in a brand-new building in Plaza Sainte-Thérèse, which is currently undergoing a major makeover by the MACH Group. Representing an investment of close to $18 million, this initiative is the result of a solid partnership amongst racing driver Alex Tagliani and the following group of seasoned entrepreneurs from the business community: Vincent Chiara (President of the MACH Group), Mario Bouchard (founder of iBwave), Richard Scofield (President of the St-Hubert Group), France Dubé and Tommy-John Gélinas (GD Lead real estate developers), and Jean-Frédéric Laberge (property manager and racing driver).

“Just as I have learned that in motor racing victory can only be achieved through the work of a good team, I know that it is thanks to the added value provided by each member of our dream team that this extraordinary project can finally see the light of day. The completion of this venture has proven to be a greater challenge than the Indy 500!” added the creator of the TAG E-karting & Amusement Centre, Alex Tagliani.
