After over 8,000 visitors have tried the inaugural location, which uses a specifically-developed version of rFactor 2 licenced by the sport, the proposed third centre followings plans for a second outlet in Birmingham, UK, later this year.
F1 Arcade offers guests the ability to drive its unique F1 simulation inside Vesaro-built D-BOX-equipped motion cockpits, watch live races, eat from a globally-inspired menu and sip champagne – among other drinks.
The Boston location will feature 60 simulators alongside private rooms that can accommodate up to 200 guests.
“Formula 1 is enjoying significant growth globally, and we are constantly innovating to ensure that we are bringing the highest quality of sport and entertainment to new and diverse audiences,” said President and CEO of Formula 1, Stefano Domenicali.
“F1 Arcade does exactly this by putting our fans behind the wheel of bespoke racing simulators, so they can feel the thrill of an F1 car first hand, coupled with a premium hospitality offering to match our world-renowned paddock.
“The success of the London venue so far has been incredible, and we are excited to see the F1 Arcade project continue to grow as it hits the US, starting in Boston.”
The Boston Seaport venue is set for an early 2024 opening and marks the start of an ambitious plan to open over 20 locations in the US over the next five years.
