Attraction details
Owner description: The Track Family Fun Park in Gulf Shores features fun for the whole family, ranging from thrill rides like the Skycoaster to family go-kart tracks, miniature golf, bumper boats, Kids Country rides, an arcade, and more. The Track’s signature attraction is the elevated, multi-level Wild Woody go-kart track, where drivers race up three and a half stories and then circle back down with an exciting drop at the bottom. The Wild Woody, Super Track and Family Track feature both double and single karts for racing. The new Spinning Coaster made its debut in 2017. With rolling curves and cars that spin while zipping along the coaster’s track, the Spinning Coaster is a great pick for a first-time roller coaster experience.

We came here for some fun and overall it did not disappoint.

The go-carts and giant air coaster were great for our older kids, but our youngest wanted to play games inside. I would say, at the time many many of the games were broken and out of order. While it didn't really deter from our fun inside too much, it was surprising to see every 4th or 5th game out of order. Overall I'd estimate there were 15 or so games out of commission.

It is a little expensive, but hey, it's vacation and we wanted to splurge a little bit.

If you're looking for something to help pass the time in the evenings, definately give The Track a look. There's plenty to do for all ages!

We stopped here to break up the day. It was fairly expensive, but the kids enjoyed it. Try to find a coupon if possible. The arcade was nice but also somewhat expensive for some of the games. Overall it was worth it though, kids loved it!

Track has it right, the go karts thrilled my kid's, I never expected a ride for every age (HEIGHT). As parents we watched a lot, but it was the kids turn to enjoy, we got the memories. And very good clean family fun for couple hours, a must do on a vacation, 4 stars

Great place for young families. Kiddie amusement park rides, squirting bumper boats, miniature golf, and 5 go-kart tracks give children plenty to choose from. Indoor arcade similar to Chuck E Cheese or Putt Putt, but more expensive. The go-carts are good quality but slow because of being governor speed limited. Ride the "Woody" track for a unique, 3 level wood go-cart experience.

3 hours of riding for a family of 4 can cost anywhere from $50 to $150 depending on how many rides your family rides and what kind of specials you find. The rides can get expensive if you don't find specials or coupons. Drinks and snacks are inexpensive for this kind of place.

We started vacationing in Gulf Shores more than 20 years ago and we've visited The Track on nearly every visit. Our kids enjoyed it and now our grandchildren do too!

The Track includes indoor ticket-dispensing kid's games and outdoor mini-golf, go-karts, kiddie rides, and some heart-stopping bungee action. An afternoon at The Track doesn't come cheap, we dropped $60-$70 easily on 3 hours of diversion. The little kids (5-6 years old) really enjoyed playing the games and redeeming their tickets for plastic treasures. The older kids were ultra-competitive in mini-golf, and everyone enjoyed the go-kart rides. There are two-seater karts, so the littlest ones rode as passengers.

As a vacation activity that you won't be doing on a weekly basis, The Track is a fun way to spend an afternoon. Hasn't changed that much over the years, and that's not a bad thing!
