With seven large tracks (38 lanes in total), including the high speed 'Blue King', as well a 1/24 scale quarter mile drag strip, Thunderbird Raceway is the biggest slot car shop and raceway in Australia. All of our tracks are available for casual lane hire whenever we're open, no booking required. Additionally, our raceway makes an excellent children's birthday party venue. If you're after a bit of competition, we host organised racing on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. In store, we stock a huge range of cars, home racing sets, parts, specialist slot car tools and accessories. Chances are, when it comes to slot cars, we'll have what you need.

Son's Birthdaty Party
Apr. 2015 • Family
We were Looking for something fun to do for our sons 10th birthday party. As they get a little older need to find interesting and fun things to do. So we went and had a look at what the offer for a birthday party, and were very happy. A party race room for the drinks and eats, offering tables chairs, pie warmer fridge hot water for tea and coffee.

Out at the slot car track they have a person running the session for you, They have some practice time and then races with a print out for the winner. We made it a little more fun with an silly award for each child. You supply all of your own food & drinks.
Kids had a ball!!
Great place for a kids party and good value , be good to go for a little longer on the track time.

Professional slot car racing set up!

The event was a birthday party for our 7 year old Grandson, and the entire group loved it!

The staff took them through a period of slot car drag racing then track racing. Staff showd the children how to control the slot cars and made sure everyone had a go, by rotating the group through each activity.

There is a small room and a pie warmer and fridge so you can bring food and heat it up. Pie warmer is a bit slow and on high setting the bottom shelf burns, so take care. Put any food to be warmed up in early. There are also tea and coffee facilities in the room.

The boys wanted to run around and went into the car park, so maybe we should have allowed more time on the track.

Take care with the drag racing that littlies do not put their hands on the track as the cars are "flying". We kept them away from the track.

The staff are very good. Friendly and good with the children. Nice prizes and medallions for all the young competitors.

The slot cars are amazing, all provided by the facility. I noticed that you could also buy the cars, a great variety of them!

You can purchase coffee which is fine.

The owner has his 1961 Thunderbird parked out the front, it was under wraps but we had a look, it is beautiful. He told us he drives it every day.

Everyone loved the racing, children and parents and us grandparents.

The fars handle so much better than they did when I was a child! And go faster!

This is worth a visit! I noted that many of the customers were adults so its nit just for children!
