Track City is a children’s play session based in Ashley Green near Chesham. The sessions run each Friday and occasionally they run special sessions on Saturday. During normal times there is a drop-in system in place and I’m told it can be very popular. This review of Track City was written whilst social distancing measures are in place and so tickets must be pre-booked and spaces are limited. The sessions are suitable for 18 months – 5 years.
We were very kindly gifted admission to attend a Track City session to write this review. Track city didn’t have any input in this review and did not see it before it was published.
The hall is set-up with loads of interconnect track covering pretty much the whole floor. There’s things like tunnels stations, bridges and obstacles along the track. Dotted around are various play sets such as Happyland, Little Tykes and Fireman Sam. Normally there are trains and figures around for the kids to play with. Due to covid 19 each child is given a little basket with their own figures and trains in. The idea is that you keep your basket with you throughout the session and there’s no mixing of toys. The buckets have a good range of trains, carriages and figures. Here’s what we had;
If your child is particularly enjoying playing with one set then there may be some more figures available. Smallest Child was loving playing with the Super Wings set and we only had one plane so we were given a couple of extra figures. Obviously when the baskets were being put together they have no idea what the child playing with it will be interested in. There’s a good range of toys – dinosaurs, princesses, knights and animals.
Obviously kids abandon their toys or pick up the toys that other people have abandoned. To help deal with any covid risk Nicky is pretty much constantly going around spraying any lost toys with Dettol surface spray.
For the adults
There’s plenty of seats for adults around the edge, all socially distanced. There’s also refreshments available. Anyone over 11 is required to wear a mask except whilst they’re drinking. Everyone is asked to sanitise their hands upon entry.
The kids seemed to be, by and large, quite happy to just get on and play by themselves. Because it’s in an open hall it’s easy for the adults to just sit and watch whilst the kids run around after the trains.
Each session is £7.50 per child, the first adult is free and it’s £3 for a baby or additional adult. You can book your space here. Sessions are on Fridays at 10:15, 11:15 and 13:15.

I’m Vicky and I am a mum of three living in Aylesbury. I set up Free Time with the Kids to review free and cheap family days out in Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Oxfordshire, mainly because I kept forgetting all the fabulous places that were recommended to me!! I love getting out and about with the kids (and hubby of course) and we have adventures all over the place. My reviews tell you all the things you need to know about the family days out and activites we’ve done such as how much it costs, if there’s parking, toilets and if there’s a cafe or if picnics are allowed. I really hope you find the reviews helpful. If there’s anywhere that you’d recommend please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch via Facebook
