From 8 to 80: Why slot car racing appeals to all ages

Slot cars for all ages

One of the best things about slot car racing is that it appeals to anyone, of any age and ability. It’s easy to pick up, hard-to-master nature means it doesn’t require any pre-developed skills, allowing everyone to join in and enjoy the game.

Fun for all ages

In case you’ve never seen it before, slot car racing will have you racing miniature cars around a small track at surprisingly high speeds. You just pull the trigger to control the speed of your car. Speed up on the straights and slow down to take the sharp corners. The idea is to keep your car on the track throughout the race – you’ll lose lots of time to your competitors if your car crashes.

Slot car racing doesn’t discriminate. This means children, adults and elderly folk can all experience the thrill of racing their own car around the track.

Excited kids at Race Party

Kids love slot cars

Children will enjoy controlling their slot car and watching it travel around the track. It’s particularly exciting when the track is highly detailed and designed to look like a real track, city or landscape. At Race Party, we have two tracks that are inspired by real race tracks – Melbourne’s Albert Park track and Monaco’s famous race track – and kids find racing around them a blast.

Since you’re just squeezing and releasing a trigger, slot car racing doesn’t involve any strenuous movement or risk. Parents can feel confident that their children can participate in a safe activity within a secure environment without having any impact on their fun.

A great hobby for teens

Slot car racing isn’t just for kids, there’s loads of fun to be had for older children. Teenagers will enjoy the competitive nature of slot car racing and appreciate the different types of slot cars modelled on real automobiles. With marshals getting cars back on the track as quickly as possible, the game encourages team work and group participation, making it an ideal environment for teens and adolescents to improve their collaboration and communication skills. 

Collecting slot cars and building tracks are safe, creative hobbies that parents can feel good about encouraging. Furthermore, by entering competitions, or coming to one of our Race Party Social events, teenagers can meet others their own age and make new friends.

Fun for adults too!

Of course, slot car racing is also commonly enjoyed by adults. Constructing tracks and customising slot cars has proved to be an enjoyable hobby over the years, and a great activity for relieving stress. Slot car racing requires little physical strength, so even those with injuries or disabilities can play, making it a perfect activity for the elderly too.

As Race Party is a fully licensed venue, adults can kick back, relax and enjoy a drink in between slot car races. With a selection of domestic and imported beers, red, white and sparkling wine, as well as soft drinks available, there's something to suit every taste.

Race Party corporate event

Since slot car racing is something that can be enjoyed by everyone, from young children through to senior citizens, it is a great activity for almost any type of gathering or event, including birthday parties, corporate challenges, family catch ups and other special occasions.

Undoubtedly, the best feature of slot car racing is that anybody can participate, regardless of age or skill level. The game is fast-paced and riveting, making it entertaining and thrilling for all players.
