A lifelong small-scale speed-mobile builder and driver, Rapid Raceway co-owner Rick “Rapid” Raducha initiates aspiring 1:24-scale motorists into the ways of the controller with two massive slot-car courses. Racers can challenge the grooves of the 145-foot Grandstand track, where they’ll command their electrified speedsters through its tricky S-curves before flooring it on two 13-foot straightaways. Fast fingers can also test their abilities on The Whip, which features two 34-degree banked turns and more than 88 feet of raceway that’ll leave drivers little time to break for necessary pit stops or unnecessary blueberry-scone runs. This Groupon provides a rental car and remote so casual competitors don’t have to propel cars with mind control, but slot-car gurus are welcome to bring their own models.

The kids’ birthday party turns races celebratory from start to finish, inviting up to eight racers of all ages to speed through an hour of slot-car racing before decamping to a private party room for an hour of anniversary-inspired festivities. Parties include race time, car and remote rentals, and the right to cry if you want to.
