EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Recreate the iconic Mario Kart Rainbow Road course with the Hot Wheels Mario Kart Rainbow Road track set. This rainbow-colored course measures eight feet long and 24 inches high, plus it has lights and sounds. Two 1:64 racecars are included for racing right out of the box: an exclusive King Boo and Mario. Build it curved (as shown in our video review) or straight. Either way, an electronic start and finish gate display the winner. You can race five cars at a time.

To add obstacles, unlock the pop-up elements by sliding the switch on the side of the track. Now, when a racecar goes through the spinning question blocks, a random item will flip up and may block one of the other racers.

There are other fun features that bring the video game to life, such as 3-D sculpted figures and decorations.

If you want the racecars to continue racing, you can detach the finish line and connect any orange Hot Wheels track you already own.

When you're done racing, parking spaces in the pillars of the track set make storage easy.

Is It Fun?

This large track set looks so cool, and Mario Kart fans will like watching favorite characters race down the multi-colored track. The lights and sound effects enhance the play, and we also like that there are two ways to build and two ways to race. Fans will also like connecting this track set to other Hot Wheels track to create a more customized racing experience.

Who It’s For

This track set is for ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

You will need six AAA batteries.

Adult assembly is required, and we found it pretty easy to do.

Additional racecars are sold separately.
