The place is deserted. And with good reason. Apparently if it rains any amount--even a quarter of an inch--flooding occurs and they shut everything down for the rest of the day. To add insult to injury, they informed me that my 4-hour unlimited play vouchers (along with a cover letter from that exact location/company name) would not be honored since ownership of the company had changed. What a joke for a business. And a real disappointment for my four-year-old. Go bowling or watch a movie instead.

This was a great place that opened in the 1970's and was something that was considered cutting edge way back then. I remember it being packed and it was even covered by ""60 Minutes"" on TV. The fad was so hot in California where it began, they actually had on site ""financing"" so you could borrow money to pay for your laps the competition was so intense. Within a few years it was a neat place to go and the video game craze made it and the neighboring Castle one of the best arcades in the city. Then when video games died as PC games took over, they brought in slot cars which were still a lot of fun and something you could take the kids and enjoy that was not a great expense. Finally, it was down to just the track, and now, the building is bulldozed, the lap time score board gone, and only the well travelled concrete of the 1 lap track is all that remains on what must surely be an incredibly valuable piece of land that is nearly impossible to get to from the highway.
