Where are we going today?

Get back on track with those family days out with The Track Recreation Center! It's all about family fun here in Alabama with a number of activities for kids and parents - no matter what age!

Are you excited to explore what you can do ALL day? Let's go!

How about we start with those future racing champions, where you can race the Wild Woody - the THREE story wooden track with spirals around, or you can enjoy the classic track with overpasses!

Think you need to be a driver to enjoy it? At The Track, even those as young as 4 years can get on those karts - so rev those engines, and get ready to take on those twists and turns!

Mini golf is next at The Track where the fun River Boat Adventure Golf will test your skills as you navigate dark tunnels, beautiful waterfalls and fun obstacles like the big windmill!

Do you think you have what it takes to get a hole in one?

More fun around the corner with the Bumper Rides - and you WILL get wet! The Blaster Boats is a great way to not only cool off, but enjoy some friendly family competition as you try and soak your opponents with the water canons. It's bumper boats with a difference!

If you have little kids in the family, they will love Kinds Country at The Track, where those pint-sized patrons can ride the Rio Grande Train, fly in the Airplanes, enjoy time on the Carousel, check out the view from the Ferris Wheel, and other fun rides!

Did we mention those BIG THRILLS too? The Skycoaster is where you can experience the thrill of skydiving, and the arcade is great for testing those skills trying to get those high scores.

It's family fun all around with The Track Recreation Center - the biggest question is, what will you enjoy first!?

    Extremity disappointing. I wanted to reward my employees with trip to Destin, we planned on go karts, mini golf and a day at the beach. I tried to call the day before we came to verify they would take American Express and that the go karts would be fun for adults. I tried all of the options on the automated phone system and could not get a person to talk to, I finally went through the process of ordering online to see that they accepted AMEX online so I guessed they would at the track. We arrived at 10, with some of my employees driving almost...Read More

    Visited the area from out of town and went to this place with a 9 year old and 3 1/2 year old. The staff was amazingly friendly. They have a good selection of rides, 5 or 6 specifically for younger children. There are many other activities for older kids and teens, including mini golf, go-carts and an arcade. A 20% discount for locals, military, and seniors makes it an affordable activity. A "debit card" system makes it easy to select and pay for individual rides and activities. My kids, especially the 3 1/2 year old, really loved it. I'd recommend...Read More

    Played mini-golf with the kids and it was great! Entire facility is well maintained and staff was friendly. Prices for mini-golf were VERY affordable, and the kids were free. I would recommend to anyone looking for an evening of fun and games!

We arrived at 10, with some of my employees driving almost 4 hours to get there. We found out when we walked in that the adult tracks would not open until 4:15. They told me that the employees are high school kids and that they wouldn't have anyone there to run the track until then. We ended up mini golfing( that was ok) and leaving. I would have changed the plans for the entire team if they would have just answered the phone.
