Markerstudy eyes new Kent attraction
Markerstudy Leisure plans to a new indoor go-karting and laser games centre in Tunbridge Wells later this year.
The plan is to build the venue on the site of a former printworks. It will feature a games centre, cafe, with a track which can feature eight electric go-kart on track at the same time, while 30 people could play laser games simultaneously.
A spokesman for Markerstudy said up to 30 jobs would be created for the venue, which he said will hold just under 100 people at any one time, including staff and spectators.
“The nearest similar attractions are in Maidstone and Crawley, so we believe this new centre would be of real benefit to the whole Tunbridge Wells borough. If planning permission is granted, we anticipate the centre being open by summer this year,” he said.
Markerstudy Leisure also owns Bewl Water, Salomons and the One Warwick Park hotel.
