Hot Wheels Dragon Destroyer Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The Hot Wheels Dragon Destroyer track set features two unique tracks with obstacles: fireballs and a hungry dragon that kids must knock out to save the day. Place a Hot Wheels car onto the kid-powered elevator and bring it up to the top of the ramp. If you send the car down the left track, the car must dodge the dragon's plastic fireball projectile before making it safely down the ramp. If the car goes down the right track, it gets caught in the dragon's mouth. To rescue the car, place another Hot Wheels vehicle into the special truck-style launcher. Press the button and launch the vehicle at the playset's central pillar. This knocks down the dragon and frees the captured car. The dragon can also be played with off of the track set. Insert the plastic projectile into the dragon's mouth and press the button on its back to launch. One Hot Wheels 1:64 die-cast vehicle is included. Additional Hot Wheels cars are sold separately.

Is It Fun?

The Hot Wheels Dragon Destroyer track set has really cool action features. Kids will have fun dodging the fire-breathing dragon and rescuing cars that couldn't escape the dragon's clutch. Because part of the play is in rescuing the captured car, kids will definitely want to add more Hot Wheels vehicles to this track set.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Dragon Destroyer is for ages 4 and up. Kids who like active, imaginative vehicle play will enjoy this the most.
