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

The Massive Loop Mayhem set is an epic track in every sense. Reenact races by placing multiple cars through the motor and watching them go. Cars pass through the giant 28-inch wide loop, and across a figure eight track, where they death-defyingly leap back across the loop's path, and ultimately back to the motorized booster to start the lap over.

The intersection of the figure eight and the loop is perpendicular, creating tension as cars whiz by in a series of near-misses. Place enough cars, and eventually there will be a crash, which is, of course, what we're all really here to see. If you're feeling particularly mischievous, you can launch a car going the opposite direction right into the high-speed loop mayhem and cause a crash yourself! Hit the pedal on the side track as hard or as soft as you want to control the rouge car's speed. The loop truly lives up to its name, but despite its incredible size, the track's motor has no issue propelling the cars up and down the loop with ease.

This set can be connected to existing Hot Wheels tracks, however it is a one way entry. Once cars enter the loop from outside, they will remain in the Massive Loop Mayhem course and not exit (until crashing, of course!) There is special parking for up to six extra Hot Wheels cars on top of the loop for quick and easy access.

Is It Fun?

Absolutely! This set can be connected to other existing tracks you may have, and the loop is indeed massive and quite the novelty. Plus, crashing toy cars is just plain fun. The launch pedal lets you control the exact timing and speed for introducing the chaos of another car, encouraging repeat play and experimentation with multiple and varied cars.

Who It’s For

This set is a blast for any car-enthusiastic child ages 5 to 10. For children on the younger side, adult assistance is recommended for the loop construction in particular.

What To Be Aware Of

The motor requires four D batteries, which are not included.

The loop is meant to be assembled once and not taken apart. Since the track itself is rather large once assembled, (just over two feet tall and three feet wide), there may be challenges with storage if not adequately prepared for the size.

The motorized booster is a tad noisy, but nothing much worse than any other similar Hot Wheels toys. For folks accustomed to the sound, this is no big deal.
