The Austin Cars

Beep beep! Make way for dinky drivers grinning their way around the track.

About the Austin Cars

The Austin Cars is one of our most popular children’s rides, and that’s mainly due to its interactive nature. Children love to ‘drive’ their cars around the track, with earnest expressions and cheery waves to parents.


Who can ride, and what does it cost?

The Austin Cars are suitable for pre-school children up to the age of about 6 or 7, as they’re not particularly fast or furious. They cost 4 tokens per person and, depending on their size, two children can fit in a car together.
