A new operator has taken on Dundee’s failed go-kart centre and has plans to attract new customers.
ScotKart has asked the city council for permission to use part of the Myrekirk Road premises for laser tag.
The centre, on the Wester Gourdie industrial estate, opened in summer 2012 following a £400,000 investment to make it the largest indoor karting facility in Scotland. It was open seven days a week and boasted a fleet of karts capable of speeds up to 40mph.
However, it shut its doors in February after operators Karting Ecosse were placed into provisional liquidation on the order of the sheriff court following a petition by estate agents Castlelaw Estates.
A number of customers went online to complain they had lost money because bookings were not honoured.
Muir Smith Evans, the agents for the new operator, said adding laser tag would ensure “a robust business model”.
