Located in a 36,000 square foot facility in Norcross, GA, Tiny Towne is an indoor edutainment park designed to teach kids aged three to 16 about the rules of the road, while providing them with a real life driving experience. This location is the first “edutainment” center of its kind in the world, providing young drivers with the opportunity to learn to drive in an indoor kid-sized town, complete with two driving courses, a train for towne tours, and multiple birthday party rooms such as the “Brake Room” and “Caution Corner,” “Safety Suite” and “VID Hall.”
Tiny Towne combines fun and education about the safety and rules of the road, by teaching through interactive entertainment. Aspiring drivers must follow all road signs and traffic signals while cruising through Tiny Towne in high-tech mini cars. To advance to higher-level tracks, Tiny Towners must complete educational activities and drive successfully for multiple rounds in the simulators. Tiny Towne offers three different car sizes and a wide range of courses that young drivers can take that are appropriate for their age and experience level. Drivers can even receive a Tiny Towne permit that provides free access to educational resources such as educational computer games, driving tests and simulators that cover 11 different topics of safety and road awareness.
Senior drivers who pass the basic traffic test and have a safe driving record on the advanced track ultimately earn a Tiny Towne Driver’s License! Drivers be warned though, not using a seat belt and not following the rules of the road result in a “ticket” handed out by the Tiny Towne police officers. Violations come with differing points on drivers’ records, ranging from consequences such as slowing down the speed of your mini-car, getting your license suspended, or even sending violators in front of a Tiny Towne judge.
If young drivers get weary of the road, they can head over to the “Carcarde” room for arcade classics, jump on board the Tiny Towne Express train, or head over to the Grill for a delicious bite to eat. As one of the reviews on the Tiny Towne website states, “This place is a real boredom buster!! I love the fact that the kids can learn the rules of the road in a safe and friendly environment!” Tiny Towne is open for field trips, birthday parties and truly has something for all young drivers to enjoy!
