If your child wants to have a party filled with thrills, spills, crashes and competition, Race Party has it all.
Ideal for birthday parties, gatherings and school holiday fun, our slot car racing facility in Camberwell gives boys and girls the opportunity to race cars around circuits while developing their technique to keep the vehicles on the track.
The energetic game gives kids the chance to get away from the computer screen and engaged in a lively activity that allows them to build on their social and team work skills.
Here are five great reasons why your child’s next party should be a Race Party:
1. Get kids away from the screen
We know parents are always looking for ways to cut their children’s screen time, whether that be on the computer, tablet or smartphone.
The Australian Health Survey 2011-12 revealed that children and young people aged 5–17 years spent more than two hours per day (136 minutes) engaged in screen-based activity with physical activity decreasing and screen-based activity increasing as age increased.
Race Party offers children the chance to play an electronic-style game without the screens. The game requires participants to stand when using the controls and move around when acting as a marshal, encouraging them to get on their feet and get active.
2. Socialise with friends
Engaging in a range of activities is important for a child’s development. According to the Raising Children Network, these activities should ideally include physical play and exercise, creative and imaginative play, hands-on fun and anything that involves relationships and interactions with real people.
Race Party is set up in a way that encourages children to participate in a game as an individual playing alongside friends, or as an individual contributing to a team of two or more players.
The game allows players to interact with each other in close proximity, in real time and in a hands-on way.
3. Work as a team
Our slot car races are designed to give participants the chance to compete as individuals and as part of a team.
Race Party encourages healthy competition as players aim to improve their racing technique, lap records and overall speed.
Our range of car and racing options means the game can be tailored to the group playing, allowing players to work together to reach their racing goals.
4. A fun and fast paced game
Race Party brings the charm of traditional slot car racing to modern day children, with 360 degree loops, sharp corners and eight lanes of speed making for a fun and fast paced game.
The races are short to engage players and keep them focused on the game, while allowing them to enjoy the adrenaline-pumping nature of a rapid track race.
5. A fuss-free party
Parents and guardians can relax knowing that we’ve got the whole party covered. From coordinating the slot car races to catering, and even post-racing activities including our winner’s presentation and dress-up photo booth, we take care of it all.
We can also create Race Party invitations for your guests, a healthy food menu option and optional ice-cream cakes and lolly bags to add to the party atmosphere.
