Hot Wheels Race Rally Water Park Playset Review – Hot Wheels Race Rally Water Park Playset will be great fun for any child over age three who likes to race cars. This race set has the added excitement of water so it can be played with in the bathtub or pool on a hot summer day.
This set includes a dual racetrack, which actually floats on a sturdy base. It is adorned with palm tree, rocks and other decor, giving it a tropical feel. It also comes with one Hot Wheels car for racing down the runway.
- This could be a choking hazard due to small parts and is not intended for children under age 3
- Additional cars can be found in stores or online but are sold separately.
This set has a fill cup at the top of a twisty double ramp. Tip the cup full of water and it will push the cars so that they will race down to the water in the tub. This playset sits on a hollow base that floats on the water. It has a palm tree that can divert the cars in different directions. Another palm tree pops out to denote the winner of the race. It comes with one Hot Wheels Die-cast vehicle.
1. The playset has a large flat base. This allows it to float on water, making it a great toy for the bathtub.
2. The tracks are smooth and it is easy for the cars to slide down, with or without water. This makes the toy versatile, since it can be played with in a variety of settings.
3. Though it is an adult job, this set is easy to assemble. The directions included are clear enough to follow. The set can be put together in less than five minutes.
4. This set can be used with the color changing cars, making it even more interesting and enjoyable to play with. These color changing cars are sold separately, however.
5. Mattel has great customer service that will be able to help answer questions, fix any issue, or at least offer a refund when necessary
Points to consider
1. The base can fill up with water when used in the bathtub. There are no holes to drain the water out and it could grow mold. Also, water-filled, it will not float very well causing cars to have a hard time moving down the track without falling off.
2. This set only comes with one Hot Wheels vehicle. Since it is a race, more will be desired. Many Hot Wheels vehicles can be used on this race track and there are some specially made for it. Heavier vehicles may not work as well and may not fit properly on the track.
This is a great Hot Wheels set for playtime in the bathtub. Kids who love racing cars will now love bathtime as well with the addition of this set. Hot Wheels Race Rally Water Park Playset is a good value for a fun toy in the water or out!
