Hot Wheels SpinShotz Super Score Shoot-Out Set Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Hot Wheels SpinShotz discs are top toys with the ability to speed, accelerate, and fly through obstacles. The Super Score Shoot-Out track set showcases this unique and exciting action. Attach the special-edition SpinShotz disc onto the launcher and give it a few turns. (Try different numbers of turns to find the best performance.) Then, place the disc and launcher through the hole on the track. Press the button to send the disc speeding around the starting curve and down the Magna Grip track. Then, make the jump and land in the target to score the most points. It takes skill, coordination, and a bit of luck to hit the target's highest-scoring spots. Kids can challenge themselves during solo play or amp up the head-to-head competition with friends.

The reconfigurable, modular-designed Magna Grip track lets kids build out their set and customize the action. The Super Score Shoot-Out easily connects to other SpinShotz sets, which are sold separately, and additional SpinShotz discs are also sold separately.

The Super Score Shoot-Out Set comes with one launcher, one launch platform, two pieces of track, one jump, one scoring target, and one special-edition disc.

Is It Fun?

Launching the SpinShotz is easy to do, and the discs spin really well. However, it's going to take a lot of practice to launch the SpinShotz disc and hit the target. There are a lot of variables, such as how much you wind the top. The maximum is about five or six clicks, but we did four. Too many clicks, and the SpinShotz might fly right past the target. Too few spins and the disc might not even make it to the target. You'll also need to adjust the distance between the track and the target.

Who It’s For

The Hot Wheels SpinShotz Super Score Shoot-Out is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The instructions for this set weren't that clear in terms of words and what type of games you can play. It's up to kids to come up with their own games. We suggest setting a point limit, such as the first player to 1,000 points wins.
