My grandsons age 12 & 9 years old loved racing each other. They said that they really liked it.

Please make it clearer on the Groupon that there is only one specific track that the Groupon is applicable for.

First off, your place is pretty amazing! Your tracks are very cool, and diverse. Everyone left saying, "very cool tracks!" Now, the casual racer is probably not your preferred clientele, and it showed. We felt a bit like, "Okay, a Groupon -- stick them over on that track." The explanation took all of a minute. Nothing on the computer was explained, nothing "pitched" about how racing takes place, what fun a "race" is, about tournaments, etc. We just figured it out as we went. We had fun, but felt more intrusive than someone you wanted to come back. Not once did anyone check up on us. Showing first-timers a bit more attention might not be your thing, but might just earn you new devotees.

I would go again if there was another groupon for it. We live kind of far so it would have to be worth my while. definitely had fun and would recommend to another.

What a fun place!! Kids had a blast and we did too. It was nice to see other people who were racing their own cars on the other tracks so the kids could see others (who knew what they were doing) do some high speed races.

The facilities were like entering someone's garage -- where they work on slot cars instead of real cars. Though there were a number of interesting racetracks in the store, only one was available for walk-ins who were renting equipment. This place definitely caters to the serious slot car hobbyist -- and they are probably well known in those circles. I guess my assumption was that by working with Groupon, the Raceway was looking for exposure to the less serious slot car enthusiast. If that was the case, than the facilities and the staff are not really suited for that audience, due to the limited selection of tracks and the general appearance of the facilities.

A lot of fun for one hour would definitely do it again

From Our Editors

Mid-America Raceway's slot-car facility stocks everything from parts and paints to motors and controllers. These items include JayGee controllers, Falcon motors, Open-12 chasses, and Sonic gears that enable miniaturized drivers to shift quickly through sharp turns. Elsewhere, the shop's winding racetracks buzz with activity during races, as new and experienced racers test their skills while precise electronics track their lap times. Staff members—including the shop's track dog, Marshall—also host special events for racers of all ages.
