What weekend activity that only needs S$20 but can be enjoyed by the whole family?
This is the answer: the new Toda Racing in Downtown East Mall. Bring your own racing car and rent the racing tracks or rent the car and the racing tracks for only S$15 (30 minutes) or S$20 (1 hour).
There are two tracks available: for the amateur and professional racers. Of course we joined the amateur one. It was so fun to see those car racing on tracks and watching the professional racers do some maneuvers and tricks. As for the amateurs ones, it was fun jut to see the car crashed, flipped, or hit the wall. It was therapeutic (seriously!).
So, we decided to try this new racing track. The staff said it will increase the children’s motoric skills too. Here are what happened when we tried this activity:
The story behind: lil boy started to feel bored after 1 hour….which was great because we didn’t have to rent the car for another hour and could leave ASAP because we were all hungry!
Luckily he didn’t ask for the real racing car because it will cost us S$200 (for the car only) plus another S$ to rent the racing tracks.
He never asks to play here again after that day. I think it’s not really his kind of sports, and mine too cause I was sooo…..bored waiting for him to finish his play. He is not a very patient boy, so when his car crashed and flipped and hit something again and again….he was frustrated. He couldn’t keep his car racing in straight direction for a long time. He wanted to jump to the professional tracks at that time which was impossible because his skill was just below amateur. I think that was why he felt bored finally. He did have some fun by standing in the middle of the tracks and chased the cars!
