My wife bought me a radio control twin set of Mitsubishi Evo & Suburu Impreza.
My son and I have had great fun racing them around the conservatory. :)

42 :D




But my 12 year old is making best use of it, the 9 year old is not far behind and the twins @ 7 have managed some basic designs.

I would suggest that 9+ is about the level because of the need to manage finances and increased general management of the "park" as numbers of rides and people grow.

Just been informed by 9yo's mate that the air powered coaster is a big winner - particularly when you run the track across water and introduce the sharks to the mix :D :D :D :D :D
