Kids, Let’s Rev Things Up

Looking for a way to keep the kids busy over the school holidays? We’ve invited some of their favourite characters from Disney Pixar’s Cars to the centre for two big weeks of fun. 

From Monday 9 July until Friday 20 July, we’ll be running a range of in-centre activities and competitions for kids from 10am–2pm each day. 

Highlights include the life-sized Mack truck, which will be hanging out at On Four (next to Mad Mex), while Lightning McQueen will make an appearance at Centre Court on Level 1. 

Elsewhere, kids can create Cars-inspired Lego masterpieces (Level 1), design their very own Piston Cup at the Winner’s Trophy workshop (Level 2), or participate in a stamp collecting mission that might see them scoring a prize.  And if they still need to run off some energy, kids can grab a scooter and take on the Crazy Eight track at On Four. 

Keen to win? Snap a few photos at any of the in-centre Cars activations, follow Westpoint on Facebook and upload your favourite pic using #WestpointCars to automatically enter the race to win a Cars themed prize pack worth $250.

From 9–20 July kids can visit the centre to have their picture taken with the real-life Mack and Lightning McQueen. Activity workshops will take place every day from 10am–2pm, while competitions offer a chance to win big.

Need some more school holiday action? Check out our top 3 tracks for young scooter and bike fanatics who want to learn a few road rules. 

Fairwater Park, Blacktown
This spanking new bike and scooter track (also known as a “dinky track”) is slightly smaller than other nearby tracks but it’s perfect for teaching the kids about road safety. The purpose-built track includes low road signs, a zebra crossing and parking bays; it’s essentially a miniaturised version of a real roadway. 
There’s also a sandpit and a children’s obstacle course, plus a duck pond and a cafe to keep the adults entertained. 

McCoy Park, Toongabbie
McCoy Park is a hidden gem tucked away in the quiet suburb of Toongabbie. The dinky track includes road markings, street signs, roundabouts, zebra crossings and even traffic lights. The track winds its way around an impressive playground, which includes a play gym, climbing wall, twist slide, two swings, two rockers, and much more. 

You’ll also find picnic shelters from where you can watch the kids, while a sports field and an off-leash dog area mean there’s plenty of space to roam if other family members need some outdoor time. 

Twickenham Avenue Reserve, Kellyville
While the dinky track here includes road signs, a roundabout and a pedestrian crossing, it goes one step further with a petrol pump. There’s also a second track around the first which does not come with all the dinky extras but is large enough for older children to enjoy. 

As the park is fairly new, the play equipment is in excellent condition, with a colourful play gym, two slides, ramps, swings, climbing steps and even a triple spinning swing.
