LightSpeed Go-Kart & Laser Tag was born when Jon Majdoch was sick and tired of dragging his kids hours away for family entertainment. Milwaukee needed some fun—and Jon decided to bring it.
Having already been in the Halloween business for many years, Jon had a good feel for the location and what it took to make a new business come to life. Besides seeing the obvious market for such a venture, there was a simple reason for Jon wanting to put together the go-kart, laser tag and arcade business—his kids.
"I have kids—and you know kids, they needed something to do in the winter and the summer months that is fun and exciting. And even though Milwaukee is a big city, there wasn't any place to have fun around here so we'd end up going to the Dells or down to Chicago," he said. "Then I thought—why not make something fun for the family to do right here in Milwaukee? And that's how Lightspeed came about."
Located at 4251 S 27th Street, Jon put together a high energy entertainment adventure for kids of all ages. He created the ultimate high-tech laser tag adventure, constructing a huge 4,500 square foot uniquely hand painted spaceship-themed arena of laser tag thrills. Players are armed with lightweight interactive computerized vests with detachable phasers, providing real-time scoring and telling who hit you and where.
Follow up your laser tag battles with a race around our thrilling go-kart track. The 1/10th mile track ensures every race is a challenge for drivers, whether you are racing your friends or just out to cruise around the course. The computer operated track keeps individual times allowing you time your laps and challenge your friends.
Our electric go karts reach up to 25 miles per hour. Electric go karts give an instant kick you won’t find in any gas go kart. As soon as you slam the pedal to the metal, the go kart torques hard and you shoot forward. But don’t worry—the karts can be programmed to throttle down for younger drivers. Lightspeed also has two-seater family karts so everyone can join in the fun.
Jon’s family loves the high energy entertainment, and you will too. Come down to Lightspeed, your destination for family fun in Milwaukee.
