Cars Quick Changers Oil Rig Ambush Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The Cars Quick Changers Oil Rig Ambush playset lets kids reenact the opening scene of Cars 2, when British spy Finn McMissile must escape the villains from their oil rig hideout located in the middle of the ocean. There are three levels of play, including secret hatches, vehicle launchers, and car diverter. Riding down the spiral ramp activates the double barrel trap. Kids can also close the gate and make a dramatic get-away with the crush-and-dump feature. Many of these actions activate Finn's Quick Change feature: missiles pop out of his hood. You can reset them by pushing the button on top of Finn. The set comes with one Quick Changers car, Finn McMissile, and it works with all the other Cars Quick Changers vehicles, which are sold separately.

Is It Fun?

Cars fans will have a blast using this playset to recreate scenes from Cars 2 and creating their own adventures. This action-packed playset will engage kids in lots of imaginative play.

Who It’s For

The Cars Quick Changers Oil Rig Ambush is for Cars fans ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Adult assembly is required. It takes about 10-15 minutes to put the playset together. Put the labels on first.

For the most fun, you'll want to purchase more of the Cars Quick Changers 1:55th-scale cars.

We tried playing with this with regular 1:46th-scale die-cast cars, and though they work, they don't work as well with all the different tricks primarily because they're too heavy.
