Buzz-A-Rama is open Saturday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.<p>
Since its creation in 1965, Buzz-A-Rama has hummed with the zooming melody of miniature slot cars, 1/24-scale replicas that race around turns and down straightaways at speeds ranging from 20 to 100 miles per hour. Eight at a time, these mini-racers whip around five different tracks that range from 80 to 100 feet in length, some featuring steep banks and sharp turns for an extra challenge. Owner Buzz Perri likes to say that his fast-paced racing menagerie—open on the weekends for general racing, weekdays for parties—is recommended for ages 5–95. Nothing proves his point better than the fact that past generations of racers now bring in their children and grandchildren to teach them a thing or two about leaving their blinkers on.
The cars and the games have an innocent charm that's been lost in the increasing sophistication of present day games and devices.The Examiner, Marty Goldberg, 4/20/11
Great trip back to yesteryear, with slot car racing and video games...it's always a big hit with the kids and fun for the adults, too.Mark J., Yelp, 6/2/11
