Hot Wheels DC Comics Batcave Review (Mattel)

Hot Wheels DC Comics Batcave
What It Is

A cool car like the Batmobile needs an awesome track for racing the bad guys. And that's what Hot Wheels fans will get with the Hot Wheels DC Comics Batcave. It comes with one Hot Wheels vehicle, an exclusive Batman character car.

When a villain car sneaks up the ramp and takes the lift into the Batcave, send Batman into the elevator, bring the elevator all the way to the top, and launch Batman down the ramp to trigger the speed trap that sends the villain down and into the jail. But be careful because the jail cell door opens to give the bad guy a chance to escape. 

The track set also has a spinning Batcomputer that holds a Hot Wheels car on one side so that Batman can scan the villain. There's also a detachable Batwing that will hold the Batman car for pretend flying adventures. And kids can change the direction of the Batman car down the ramp to send Batman racing off the playset. 

For kids who have other Hot Wheels track sets, they can connect that track to this playset.

Is It Fun?

This Hot Wheels set has the potential to set up a lot of fun and imaginative Batman adventures for kids who are Hot Wheels fans and Batman fans. The Batman character car has a pretty cool hot rod-style look that incorporates Batman's uniform in a neat way.

We just wish the track set came with another car, like the Joker character car shown on the box, so that kids could really play out all of the set's features right out of the box. Of course, most Hot Wheels fans probably have a large collection of cars at home, and most of those will work on this track set, too.

Who It’s For
The Hot Wheels DC Comics Batcave is for ages 4 and up. This will mostly appeal to young Hot Wheels fans who are also Batman fans. They'll like racing Batman against all their other Hot Wheels cars.
What To Be Aware Of

Assembly of the track set is required, and it was very easy to do. It took us only five minutes.

Additional Hot Wheels cars are sold separately. Mattel says that the track set isn't compatible with some Hot Wheels vehicles.

This track set is compatible with other Hot Wheels track, sold separately.
