I'm glad we didn't have to wait for a turn with the cars. Our boys, ages 3 to 5 were focused on their cars for an entire hour. The place is clean, the staff is helpful. Great rainy day activity..

Amazing shop in the Tontine Mall... Really takes you back to your childhood. Very nice store with a variety of other merchandise (some pretty unique items) - definitely worth checking out

We went as a family and spent half an hour racing scalextric cars. Good fun on a rainy morning. The cars were a bit worse for wear and could do with updating. But good fun.

Racing slot cars was so much fun! We raced for half an hour (we are adults). Different cars perform differently on the track (hint: the blue car is great for kids because it really sticks to the track). Some cars are so fast and light that they can fly off the corners if you don't throttle back, but that made... More

My granddaughter (5 yrs old), my daughter (well over 30), and I (well over 60) stopped in to this selectively stocked toy store and miniature race car track and had a ball! The 15-minute training and demonstration satisfied our need for a little friendly child, aunt, grandma competition. Keeping your car on the track (that is not spinning out on... More

You seldom find these tracks. It was popular 30 or 40 years ago, but popularity ebbed with the advent of radio control cars. Still, we visited this place and had fun! The track is much smaller than the track I had seriously raced on 30+ years ago, but that’s an unfair comparison. The racetrack we frequented back then were huge,... More
