A gaming venue says it is expanding across Florida, creating construction build-out opportunities.

An April 27 news release says construction is underway for Elev8 Fun’s second location at Citrus Park Town Center Mall in Tampa.

Contractors are developing 125,000 sq. ft. of entertainment space spanning two floors. “Guests will enjoy go-karts, arcade games, a virtual reality simulator, mini golf, axe throwing, laser tag and more,” the statement says.

Elev8 Fun is expected to scale quickly, with one open location, two locations under construction and 15 potential locations already having been identified, the statement says.

This concept was built on transforming department stores into entertainment centers, which breathes life into malls.

“Elev8 Fun was created to bring excitement to the communities it serves, while providing many jobs. Our brand is expanding quickly,” said David Goldfarb, president and founder of PrimeTime Amusements, a partner in the Elev8 Fun project. “Our value is we bring thousands of people to malls and help reenergize these retail centers.”

The entertainment center has a custom-designed, indoor go-kart track. The area that covers the Tampa track is 31,500 sq. ft. and the go-karts can reach speeds up to 45 mph.

In addition to the first Tampa location, Elev8 Fun says it already has its first location open in Sanford and another with construction underway in Jensen Beach.
