The accommodations are pretty basic, but it's a good value for family fun. I have two little boys and they really enjoy the races. Many of the cars are decorated with large stuffed animals, so they can follow a car they call their favorite. Their favorite event is the back-to-school bash, which includes school bus races and demolition. The food... More

Recently went for the Memorial Day family fun night! What a blast.. Kids and husband had so much fun. We enjoyed the destruction derby, ski races, musical cars and 4 cylinder enduro race. 48.00 for family of 4 and you can bring your own food and drinks!
