“Fun! Everyone should try slot car racing!”
Review of Slot Car Junction

Slot Car Junction
Reviewed 3 January 2014

I am a middle aged mom, this was way fun! Pick the shiny silver car, race and feel some stress go away. I bought a race track and three cars for my husband for Christmas, he is 52, and loves it!

The toys in the store to play with, my three year old loves, so it's a family adventure to go here. Support local business and go here the next time you need a pad of construction paper, a birthday party gift or want some fun!

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, 15 meters in length on the straightaway; a different era. The track here is much smaller and the cars also a smaller scale. This track has 4 lanes and speed can be adjusted to the skills of the drivers. When we visited it was just us [all adult age], and had the track speed cranked up…what fun! If there happens to be a really young person, let’s say less than 10 years old, and the track speed turned down, then it’s not as much fun since you can just keep the thumb pressed all the way down on the accelerator for the entire track. But when the speed is cranked up, it then becomes a game of skill. Staff was friendly. There’s also an extensive selection of tracks and cars for sale.

Track rental includes cars, there was an adequate selection. Definitely an activity that’s more fun when there's at least 2 people. Enjoyable amusement for an hour. The entrance to this small indoor mall, which is off the town’s main boulevard, is a little hard to spot from the street. We would definitely do this activity again if we happen to be in the area.

And why would you? Slot Car Junction literally has something for everyone and I never miss an opportunity to drop by - sometimes alone and other times with friends and/or family - for some exciting slot car racing and/or picking up several items (and one of the many beautiful things about this place is the variety of beautiful things to buy; many imported....at terrific prices by the way) either for our home or to give as gifts. And with the holidays fast approaching there's no question I'll be stopping in quite a few times to fill the stocking (stuffers).

GREAT PEOPLE AND A GREAT PLACE!

Lots of great toys and educational items. If you are into slot cars this is a awesome place to kill some time with large track and cars to buy and rent for some fun.

Our family, both kids and adults, loved using the slot car track at Slot Car Junction! The young man working that day was very helpful as it was our first visit.
