Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

GrandPrix Slot Car Raceway (Toronto)

Family Tested

Eat my dust!

This is the only place I know where you can race slot cars (apart from the Mini Grid store at 608 Mount Pleasant Road with a race track in the basement). Their long 6-lane road course is colour coded. You can rent colour matching slot cars or bring your own to compete against fellow racers, or within your own family. (Note that most slot cars fit the tracks except the Hot Wheels type of cars.) The manager told me that 5-6 years old kids enjoy playing with the hand controller to race the cars around the 75 foot circuit. But it’s usually by age 8 that they have enough patience to learn how to speed on the straight sections and slow down in the sharp curves.
