Wet Weather Activities on the Gold Coast

Gold Coast holidays are all about sunshine, the beach, theme parks and shopping. While the Gold Coast gets over 300 days of good weather, that still leaves 65 days that could ruin these plans. The Race centre in Surfers Paradise is the perfect solution when the weather isn’t so good.

The Race centre features 8 full motion driving simulators that get you as close to the full racing experience as possible without stepping into a proper car. A number of different cars and tracks are available, from the V8's around Bathurst to Formula 1 cars around Silverstone and a lot of options in between. These are simulators rather than games and it takes a little getting used too, 30 minutes driving feels like you’ve been to the gym for the same amount of time and it can be quite technical, so we recommend it for kids 13+ (reaching the pedals could be an issue for shorter little ones as well).

They offer great School Holiday specials including discounted hourly rates, cheap 2 lap races and group booking discounts. For more info checkout their website at www.racecentre.com.
