The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community will soon welcome Mavrix, the Valley’s newest entertainment hub.

The event space will offer 24 lanes of upscale bowling, 85 arcade games, state-of-the-art laser tag, billiards tables, dozens of 4K televisions, 1,500 square feet of meeting and event space, a 5,000 square-foot restaurant and bar featuring chef-prepared menu items and a large outdoor games patio.

Mavrix will be the latest addition to Octane Entertainment’s roster, the parent group known for Octane Raceway, Arizona’s premium kart racing facility, and Velocity VR, the state’s only free-roam virtual reality gaming arena, according to a press release.

Mavrix will be located in the 50,000 square-foot retail space next door to Octane Raceway at the Pavilions at Talking Stick.

Mavrix and Octane Raceway will total a combined 110,000 square feet with shared access to the outdoor games patio, which will connect the two entertainment powerhouses. Guests will be able to seamlessly flow between the two venues and use shared arcade game cards at both Mavrix and Octane Raceway, the press release stated.

“Talking Stick is booming with new development,” Scott Sanders, CEO of Octane Raceway and owner of Octane Entertainment, said in a prepared statement.

“As a long standing tenant, it’s exciting to contribute to the growth by delivering Mavrix, which will be the premier family entertainment center in the area. Octane Entertainment has had its sights on expansion, and when the space next door to Octane Raceway became available, it was too good to pass up.”

The Mavrix name pays tribute to the original story of Sam Maverick, an “independently-minded” rancher who refused to follow convention and carved his own path into history, the press release stated.

Mavrix conveys the spirit of bucking trends and is focused on creating rich experiences for its guests. The venue will infuse the maverick attitude with design elements of wood, brick and steel throughout, while maintaining an industrial look with clean, organic lines.

Mavrix is expected to open in late 2019. Go to mavrix.com.
