Notice to crazy drivers, an unusual karting track is coming to the Paris region. Here is Battlekart, a promising concept that has been waiting for us since the beginning of May 2022 in Paris Nord Villepinte. On the program, a crazy race during which you challenge your friends by throwing bonuses at them to slow them down like in Mario Kart or by playing a game of football like in Rocket League… We tested, we tell you!

If titles like Mario Kart rocked your childhood or that you are worshipers of Rocket League, so here is a plan that should catch your eye! A immersive experience awaits you in the Paris region, at Paris North Villepinte. If you used to go there to take advantage of the many fairs that are organized there, including the JapanExponow a new unusual concept arrives in this place of exhibition.

An interactive floor projection is your playground. Through sessions that can bring together up to 12 people, you each climb aboard one of the electric go karts. You have the choice between several types of games, including the Battle Soccer during which you therefore play football and will therefore have to score goals for your team in the virtual cages… in the manner of Rocket League.

If you prefer to play it yourself, you can also let yourself be tempted by Battle RaceI’experience in Mario Kart mode during which you dispute racesget bonuses and penalty to cast on your “friends”. In total, five games are offered here, including one inspired by Snakethe famous iconic snake game adapted in a karting version.

An experience that the editorial team was able to test… When you arrive on site, you are registered for your session and once it is loaded, it’s up to you! You are thus taken to your own kart, in your name, after having received some explanations on how it works. For those who have never done karting in their life, don’t panic: the machine accompanies you at the start to familiarize yourself with the machine and its operation. It’s very fluid, very fast and very well done.

The games then follow one another, each time asking you to get into position. All of them are interesting to play and each bring in their own way a new approach to the use of the kart. Of course, we have a small preference for races in mode “Mario Kart”extremely fun to play and very well done, with its many bonuses (missiles, submachine gun, boost, shield, etc.).

The kart, although fast, absolutely meets all expectations, and for those who are afraid of getting hit, there is little risk since the karts slow down or stop if you get too close to another car. The boost is also a real plus, with good acceleration to use in a straight line to maximize your chances of overtaking your opponents, failing to go into the background.

About the “snake-like” and “Rocket League-like”, both are also very fun, and require a different strategy to be able to win the game. Beware, however, of bad losers: these games could ruin friendships! In short, a real nice surprise for all fans of karting and immersive digital experience. Do we reserve our session?

This test was carried out as part of a professional invitation. If your experience differs from ours, please let us know in the comments.
