WRENTHAM — Route 1 is known for its series of stores but is becoming more and more an entertainment destination as well.
Along with Plainridge Park Casino in Plainville and Gillette Stadium and Patriot Place in Foxboro, the busy state highway is now home to an expansive indoor go-kart track.
Supercharged Entertainment took the wraps off its 125,000-square-foot facility at 591 Washington St. (Route 1) with a grand opening on Thursday.
SuperCharged Wrentham, set on 12 acres, is billed as the world’s largest indoor, multi-level karting track and entertainment facility.
The 18-horsepower go-karts are all electric, and the track spans 80,000 square feet.
The complex has a first-of-its-kind Ninja Wipeout Arena inspired by “American Ninja Warrior.” It features an obstacle course that includes a Ninja chute, monkey rings, a trapeze, wipeout and spinning logs, cave crawl, swinging steps, a spider pit, rope runner, gorilla swings, and lava pit.
Within that arena is a Trampoline Zone which includes open jump trampolines, extreme dodgeball, a slam dunk zone, tumble tracks, and a child jump zone.
The site is also home to a full-service bar and restaurant, the Thirsty Beaver Hometown Pub & Grub.
There is a large gaming area with a prize center as well.
The sprawling complex will employ over 200 people.
The development is overseen by Rhode Island residents Stephen and Sandra Sangermano, who serve as president and CEO, respectively.
“Sandi and I are absolutely thrilled to celebrate the opening of what we believe is the world’s best karting and entertainment venue,” Stephen Sangermano said in a prepared statement.
The hours of operation are Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 a.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to midnight.
Children are allowed to drive the go-karts as long as they are at least 4-feet, 10-inches in height.
Supercharged Entertainment operates similar complexes in Connecticut.
