Kid’s Car Driving Experience

As part of an overall retail-entertainment destination, Adventure Entertainment has been exploring how simple amusements can be integrated with the retail environment.  Essentially taking cues from Tivoli Gardens (Copenhagen) but integrating more intensely with a retail experience.

 

In this instance, a kid’s car driving experience is in exploration for younger children and their parents.  The youngest of children can be driven by a parent or older sibling.   For this particular activity, the more direct precedent inspiration of the famed Disneyland Autopia ride.   A guide rail placed along the center of the driving path keeps the kid-sized vehicles moving in the proper direction.
