Just nine months after SuperCharged Entertainment opened in Massachusetts with the world’s largest indoor go-kart track, the COVID-19 pandemic forced the young company to close. “I’m not going to lie to you, it was tough,” said Cody Browning, CEO of the entertainment complex along Route 1 in Wrentham. “There were points where we weren’t sure we’d make it.” Remarkably, the company survived the shutdown with no layoffs or vacation days. Browning said it was a fluke when it came time to reopen in March. “Being able to be that fast has also allowed us to recover faster,” Browning said. Part of the process of restoring SuperCharged involves extensive safety and hygiene protocols. Browning said that as trust grew, the number of visitors increased steadily every week. “Even now, when we’re at 50% capacity, the community support has been just amazing,” he said. “If anything March showed us, it’ll be busy. People are ready to come out and have fun.” As summer approaches, Browning plans to hire part-time workers for work from May through September.
