Unlike regular rides, slot cars don?t have a driver ? at least not inside them. Small-scale versions of classic models, slot cars are electronically powered along slots on a track by triggers that control their speed. At Slots-A-Lot Raceway, participants send their vehicles whirring across more than 150-foot tracks, vying to cross the finish first without running their car off the slot.

Up to eight racers can speed along the tracks at a time, as well as down the indoor raceway's quarter-mile drag strip. A pit area reenergizes guests with snacks and soft drinks, while a parts counter supplies equipment for building your own slot car or your pet gerbil's first ride.

The WL2P in WL2P Entertainment stands for "We Like To Party," but the team also likes other things—such as laser shows, speaking foreign languages, and doling out wigs. The party experts specialize in festive light shows, which can feature lasers or "intelligent lighting" that shifts to suit each song's mood. The team's emcees, meanwhile, are all multilingual, chatting fluently in English, Italian, and Spanish; in a similarly multicultural vein, their DJ has spent more than 15 years spinning tracks ranging from Top 40 numbers to Greek tunes and Latin hits. Clients can even add a live element to the entertainment by including a professional percussionist, saxophonist, or singer. Their touch-screen photo booths come with an attendant to troubleshoot, as well as wacky wigs that help subjects legally add "Hair Color: Pink" to their driver's licenses.
