The Track Family Fun Parks
When traveling down Highway 76 and around Branson, you can see towering wooden tracks from the street. If this is your first Branson vacation, you may be wondering, “What is that?” The answer is The Track Family Fun Parks. The Track Family Fun Parks are an ideal location for families to have fun together. With five locations in Branson, go-karting fun is just minutes away.
Between the five locations, there are 14 different track styles for every age group. Kids and adults alike can have fantastic fun at a great price. However, go-karts aren’t the only thing that the Track Family Fun Parks have to offer. Mini golf, bumper boats, laser tag, arcades, batting cages, and the Skycoaster are also part of the fun at the Track. Three of the Track Family Fun Park locations feature a unique go-kart track. One of those tracks is the LumberJack, located at the Track 5. Built in 2001, this wooden track is three stories tall and 1,186 feet long! This track was the original wooden high-rise in Branson, and took the Track Family Fun Parks to new heights. The LumberJack continues to be a favorite among visitors.
Another of the unique tracks is Wild Woody. This track has two full spirals and a blind peak, making this riding experience feel like a wooden roller coaster. Located at the Track 3, WildWoody was built in 2002, and was even bigger than the LumberJack. At four stories high and 1,440 feet long, it’s hard to miss Wild Woody when you drive into town. With ups, downs, twists, and turns, your family will love riding Wild Woody!
The final of these unique tracks is the newest one to Branson. Located at the Track 4, Heavy Metal High Rise is a metal and concrete track (700 cubic yards of concrete and 200 tons of steel, to be exact). At four stories tall and 1200 feet long, kids and adults will be thrilled when four upward spirals bring them to the top, and a three tiered slope brings them back to the ground!
All of the go-karts, rides, and games at the Track Family Fun Parks require credits, which you can buy in person at any Track Family Fun Park or online. Prices for go-karts and rides vary. If you plan on coming back to the Track more than once during your stay in Branson, a 2013 GO-CARD is a great value.
The GO-CARD gives you all the same fun at all of the Track Family Fun Parks for half price. You get $40 in free credits ($50 if you buy online), and other freebies including free pizza at Pizza World, free custard at Andy’s Frozen Custard, and more. Your GO-CARD also gets you discounts and freebies at other local shows, attractions, and dining including Ride the Ducks, Dixie Stampede, SIX, Fall Creek Steak and Catfish House, and Outback Steak and Oyster Bar. If you’re bringing your family to Branson for a reunion or just for a vacation, group rates are also available at the Track Family Fun Parks. All-Day, 2 Hour, and 1 Hour Fast Pass options are available. All-Day Fast Pass gives you unlimited go-karts and mini golf at ALL of the Track locations ALL DAY LONG! A 2 Hour Fast Pass gives you unlimited go-karts and mini golf at a reserved Track location for two hours, and a 1 Hour Fast Pass gives you unlimited go-karts and mini-golf at a reserved Track location for one hour.
