I also remember a track being located at the beach in the vicinity of Play Land. If I remember correctly, Play Land had already closed at that point.
One unique feature of the place was that it had a track for dragster type slot cars. Every so often a dragster would fry its motor on the way down the track.
It was fun to watch, but the cars owners did not seem to enjoy seeing their $50 motors go up in smoke.
After the track closed down I beleive the building was converted to a rock club.
