Last week, I played a little numbers game in this post and promised that I would explain in more detail the measuring system that The Track has in place. After all, how tall your kids are makes a big difference in what they will be able to enjoy at The Track.
I don’t know about you, but I would much rather have these things in mind NOW and not LATER (like after you’ve promised your child he can drive the rookie carts and he finds out he can’t – oops).
So, today I am delivering on my promise. Are you ready?
Before I get into the particulars, I need to share with you a few general things about The Track’s measuring system:
So, this is what happens when you arrive at the sales counter . . . once you purchase your Go-Card (remember, it’s the best deal!) :-), the sales associate will ask to measure anyone in your party who is not visibly taller that the height-measuring sign:
There is a handy-dandy measuring device that rests on top of the head so that the attendant can accurately measure your child’s height. Based on height, your child will receive a colored arm band that signifies to you – and the ride attendants – which rides your child is tall enough to enjoy!
It’s that easy.
Oh, and this is pretty great . . . For any little ones in your group who are measured under 36″ (which means they can’t ride as a passenger on the go-karts, bumper boats, etc), they will receive a “Future Driver’s License” which entitles them to a free ride once they are tall enough. Nice!!
And, for a preview of “how tall you have to be to ride certain rides” be sure to check out my How to ‘Do the Track’ . . . Big-Kid Style post for a quick lesson in the numbers. Enjoy!
