The car speaks first, its engine growling. The driver responds with an accelerating heart and a tighter grip on the steering wheel. After trading words, the foot meets the gas pedal, and the two become one, a 2-ton chimera hurtling down the track. At Racing Adventures tracks across North America, man and machine sync up during high-speed experiences that resemble professional racing scenes. Each experience culls from a fleet of supersonic roadsters, including American classics like Corvettes and vintage Cobra replica racers. Professional driving coaches always ride along, ensuring a safe thrill ride by supervising drivers' technique and checking the passenger-side window for teenagers throwing eggs at the car.
In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in more than 650 locations in 33 countries around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their child’s development, their kids learn to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of their preschool knitting circles.
