Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Power Tower Track Set Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Power Tower Track Set is the newest set in the Wall Tracks line of wall-mountable track sets. The track set uses 3M Command Strips to stick the track pieces to the wall. Load Hot Wheels cars onto the track and send them racing. There are several different obstacles, including a car-chomping beast, trap door, and moving buzz saw. The Power Tower Track Set also has two diverters to make the cars go down different tracks and a motorized elevator to bring the cars back up to the top of the set. Kids can combine the track pieces in this set with other Hot Wheels Wall Tracks sets to create their own unique tracks. The Power Tower Track Set comes with one Hot Wheels car, four yellow brackets, and five 3M Command Strips.

Is It Fun?

The Hot Wheels Wall Tracks products bring great innovation to a toy that has been around for more than 40 years. Instead of being built on the floor, the Power Tower Track Set is built on a wall, offering a new and unique way to race Hot Wheels cars. Kids will like having a race track right on their bedroom wall.

But as great as the wall system is, this is a terrific, action packed track set that gives lots of different ways to play, and that will keep kids engaged for a long time. We thought the basic Wall Tracks introduced in 2011 were great, but this adds new dimensions of play that previously were only seen in track sets that were placed on the floor.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels Wall Tracks Power Tower Track Set is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Two D batteries are required but not included.

Adult assembly is required. It takes about 15-20 minutes to assemble. Be sure to follow the directions for placement and removal of the Wall Tracks. Particularly with respect to removing the adhesive from the walls, the strips must be pulled straight down along the wall at least 12 inches until the bracket and strip release.

You will need low-adhesive tape, such as painter's tape or masking tape, and four feet by two feet of open wall space.

Don't use with wallpaper. The Command Strips may not adhere well to vinyl surfaces.

We recommend using more than one Hot Wheels car for more action.
