Daytona Raceway

With state of the art go-karts your racing experience will be exhilarating at Daytona. The indoor track is over 300m long and has a perfect width for passing. The first half of the track is fast, while the second half is technically challenging, making it great for the whole family. Daytona doesn't stop there, they also have paintball, ice skating and mini putt under the same roof. Paintball gives you a great opportunity to shoot at your whole family and make it a pain-free experience with the special Splatmaster paintball guns.

Start today! Climb at your own pace, and your friends will climb at theirs. With a two hour entry, you can climb as high as you can, then sit in your harness to have a rest before continuing up the wall. Or head to one of two bouldering rooms for some action without the harness. Scale your way to the top of these walls and then jump off onto the padding below. Female climbing nights start at 7pm each Monday. A great way to get into rock climbing with this relaxed, supportive environment led by Clare.
