Race City Raceway houses an arena for hobbyists of all ages and abilities to compete in fun, high-intensity slot-car racing. Visitors can bring their own tiny-scale speedmobile—or borrow a loaner from the raceway’s collection—and slip it into the groove of one of five racetracks for a casual jaunt or a competitive relay. Warm up on the drag strip, a trackway designed to test the true speed and potential time-traveling abilities of each car. Racers can whip around the 155-foot Thunder Road or traverse the 110-foot Beast, a track laden with hairpin turns and ant-size streakers haphazardly darting into the middle of the street. Speedsters who are new to the thrill of slot-car racing can challenge drivers of similar skill on Fridays at 7 p.m.
