Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage Review (Mattel)

Hot Wheels Ultimate Garage
What It Is

The Hot Wheels Ultimate Auto Garage gives Hot Wheels fans space to store 36 of their cars, eight areas to play with their cars, lights and sounds, and five Hot Wheels vehicles and a helicopter with car-grabbing feature to get the action started. Use the two elevators to take your cars between the four levels of the parking garage and the small ramp at the bottom of the garage. Load two cars down the side-by-side ramp for racing action, and the finish line flag will display the winner. Send a car racing down the spiral ramp to see if the car is fast enough to make it past the chomping shark. You can also divert the car down the second ramp and away from the shark. To activate lights and sounds, race a car through the tunnel, press the fill-up station, press the tune-up station, or press the helicopter launchpad. The Ultimate Garage also connects to other Hot Wheels track sets, sold separately.

Is It Fun?

This is a massive Hot Wheels playset that any fan of Hot Wheels is going to want. If you have a bunch of Hot Wheels cars and track sets already, this is a great place for storing, displaying, and playing with your collection. But even if you don't have a big collection, this comes with a few Hot Wheels cars so you can still engage in the car play right out of the box.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Ultimate Auto Garage is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Adult assembly is required and it took us about one hour to do. The instructions were easy to follow, but there are a lot of stickers to adhere and that seemed to take up most of our assembly time.

You'll also need three AA batteries, which are not included.
