We’re always looking for new and different things to do with our kids, so when we were invited to spend the day at RPM Raceway in Farmingdale, Long Island, we eagerly accepted. A quick 40 minute ride from my house (and 20 minutes from where my parents live), RPM Raceway is definitely worth the trip. There are several locations – Jersey City, Stamford, Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, NY and I could not believe how much fun we had! Fun Day Out with Kids at RPM Raceway + Special Discount Offer
My kids were intrigued when they walked through the door. With a huge racetrack, tons of video games, snacks, and a bowling alley, this is perfect for a day out with the kids or fellow adults. It’s also great for birthday parties!
Kids need to be a certain height to use the child karts. There was a handy line to make sure, but the staff will let you try your child in the karts to make sure they fit. There are rules that riders will need to follow, they are posted right next to the track, plus all participants much watch a safety video before they take place.
Here’s the prices – 1 race is actually plenty of time to really get the full experience. I honestly loved driving my go-kart — it was so fun! When you check in, they give you your race number and then you can make your way over to the track when your race is announced.
I was very impressed at the safety at RPM Raceway. We watched a quick video, we were verbally told the rules, and I felt very safe. Note for kids and adults with sensory issues – you put on a cloth sock cap (clean) and then the helmet. I normally am not sensory and I panicked when I put the helmet on. I had to take it off, fix the sock cap and then put it on again, while taking deep breaths. It is heavy, so keep that in mind.
We found that we had plenty of time to drive the track and we were very happy with just one race. But if you want even more fun, go for the 2 races.

We had such a fun time and after our races we enjoyed the arcade (you use a gift card and put money on it). You can also go bowling! We had such a fun day and we’ll definitely be back again! Fun Day Out with Kids at RPM Raceway + Special Discount Offer
