Looking for your next family-friendly activity in Gulf Shores, Alabama? The Track Family Recreation Center offers attractions and activities that parents and children alike will enjoy. The Track is located north of Portage Creek, about ten minutes away from The Wharf in Orange Beach. Just off of Gulf Shores Parkway, The Track is about 25 minutes away from Fairhope Bay and just up the road from Gulf Place in downtown Gulf Shores. The Track Family Recreation Center also has locations in Destin, Florida and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

Perhaps The Track is best known for Wild Woody, a three-story go-kart track where visitors can choose between single-rider or double-rider go-karts and race friends or family all over the track. In addition to Wild Woody, there is a classic track nearby as well as kiddie go-karts for the younger members of the family. When you're done racing each other around the tracks, you can head on out to the mini golf course, which features a windmill and numerous holes with varying difficulty that are fun for even the very young visitors to The Track. The summers in Gulf Shores can be intense and what better way to keep the kids cool than to send them out in bumper boats equipped with water cannons? The bumper boats at The Track are a particular favorite with local families and word's getting out to visitors to the area.

Young families, with little kids, will find plenty to do in the Kids Country area of The Track Family Recreation Center. In Kids Country, little kids can ride on the train or airplanes, go around on the carousel, play on the swings, or check out the sights from the top of the Ferris wheel. For older kids, teenagers, and parents, the favorite attraction is the Skycoaster. Featuring a 110-foot freefall where riders can speed through the air at up to 70 miles per hour, this attraction is not for the faint of heart. Once you've taken the plunge on the Skycoaster, older family members might enjoy spending an hour or two in the family-friendly arcade room.

Because The Track is such a popular destination, there are a number of package options for small and large groups. Many of these packages rely on points. You buy a certain number of points and then use them to gain entrance into different attractions. Points can be bought one at a time for $0.93, but there are larger packages offering more points. You get the most bang for your buck when you purchase the Best Value Bonus Pack, which offers 144 points for $99.36. You can get points at the sales counter, but there are discounts offered when you purchase online. Another option is to purchase armbands, which gives you unlimited access for two hours during specified time slots booked on week in advance.
