Disney Pixar Cars On The Road Sudsmarine Car Wash Review

Editor's Review

Go on a road trip adventure with Lightning McQueen through the Cars on the Road Sudsmarine Car Wash! The car wash looks like a submarine, hence the punny name, and when the included Lightning McQueen car drives through the car wash, it will experience a color-change effect. 

To get started, you’ve got to fill the bottom blue basin with icy cold water. Pour warm water into the top of the submarine. Dunk Lightning in the icy cold water tank to change him to his signature red color. Then drive him up the car wash platform. There’s a fuel tank at the bottom in case he needs to fuel up first. There’s a red lever on the side that kids will slide to move Lightning through the car wash and right underneath the warm water tank. Press the red button on top to spray Lightning with the warm water and activate another color-change. This excess water gets collected in the red basin on the bottom. Continue sliding Lightning all the way out of the car wash and zooming down through the foam rollers. Then do it all again!

Because this involves water, make sure to play in an area where it’s okay to get wet, and when playtime is over, thoroughly dry all the pieces. Some adult assembly is required, and you can attach it to other Cars track sets, sold separately.

Should I get it?

This is such a fun way for fans to engage with Lightning McQueen. The color-change effect is easy to do and easy to do over and over again. (You DO have to make sure that your cold water is VERY cold.) While the color-change is fun, you could even use this playset without water and just pretend to give your cars a bath! This will definitely inspire imaginative play.
