Negocio

La Alcaldesa del Condado de Orange, Teresa Jacobs, y la comunidad de International Drive celebraron la inauguración de Andretti Indoor Karting & Games que se llevó a cabo el 17 de octubre. La atracción es una nueva incorporación al distrito turístico del Condado de Orange aclamado a nivel internacional y es la primera sucursal de Andretti Indoor Karting & Games que abre sus puertas en la Florida.

"I can't think of a better place in our community for this exciting and one-of-a-kind attraction to call home," Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs said in her remarks. "We are honored to celebrate the legacy of the Andretti family and the grand opening of their Orlando location."

Andretti Indoor Karting & Games was established in 2001 and is headquartered in Georgia with two successful locations in Roswell and Marietta. The company also owns and operates the outdoor Andretti Thrill Park in Melbourne, Florida.

Located within walking distance of the Orange County Convention Center, the complex features multi-level indoor karting, a full-service restaurant and bar, 12 lanes of boutique bowling, more than 120 arcade and prize games, six virtual reality racing simulators, an extreme ropes course and more than 100 HD TVs for sports viewing.

The attraction is expected to bring 400 new jobs in Orange County. The space offers 150,000 square feet of indoor entertainment and a professionally designed multi-level track that was created exclusively for the Orlando location by 360 Karting with the most elevation changes and turns in the world.

During the grand opening ceremony and event, Mayor Jacobs named Oct. 17, 2017 Andretti Day in Orange County. Mario Andretti had a successful racing career, being one of the only two drivers in the history of the sport to win races in the Formula One, IndyCar, World Sportscar Championship and NASCAR disciplines.

Andretti’s family launched a successful family motorsports attraction business and Mario Andretti continues to serve as an industry spokesman, a philanthropist and a voice of authority in the field of motorsports.

The Andretti Indoor Karting & Games is a welcome addition to I-Drive and complements Mayor Jacobs’ Plan Visionario de International Drive to create a vibrant, dynamic and safe pedestrian-centered environment with dedicated transit lanes and sidewalk enhancements for Orange County visitors and residents.

Reconocer la importancia de crear una visión compartida para el área de International Drive, la Alcaldesa Jacobs designó un Grupo de Revisión (SRG) integrado por propietarios, terratenientes y partes interesadas del área de I-Drive quienes se comprometen a mantener I-Drive como el primer destino mundial por excelencia para el turismo y el entretenimiento familiar. Al SRG se le asignó la tarea de elaborar un plan integral y consistente para el Área de Estudio además de encargarse de la implementación de estrategias y herramientas que serán consideradas por la Junta de Comisionados del Condado (BCC). La BCC aceptó el Plan Visionario de I-Drive 2040 el 3 de noviembre de 2015. Some aspects of the Andretti Indoor Karting & Games were built to the standards of the I-Drive 2040 Vision code.

Con cientos de tiendas minoristas y restaurantes de fama mundial, miles de hoteles y resorts contemporáneos, decenas de complejos de entretenimiento y atracciones turísticas pensadas para la familia, I-Drive es responsable de una importante parte del éxito de la industria hotelera y del sector turístico del Condado de Orange. El Condado de Orange alberga a más de 1.2 millones de residentes y recibe a más de 68 millones de visitantes cada año.
