Hot Wheels: Team Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The new Team Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare is a racing set that gives a new and different way to race and compete with Hot Wheels cars. The objective is to be the first car through the loop and be caught in the snare. Two cars compete side by side down a short track strip, and the goal is to get your car to race through a loop, and over a jump at the edge of a "canyon," and it's designed so that on each race only one car can win. The winner is caught in the snare and saved from a fall, while the slower car must make the jump or plummet to the bottom. The track set comes with a built-in "fair start" timer. When you push the timer button, the ramps go down. You must wait for the ramps to go up before launching the cars because if you launch your car too early, the car will go flying off the track. Double Dare Snare comes with one Hot Wheels vehicle.

Is It Fun?

Hot Wheels is all about racing cars and that's just what this racetrack playset offers. The "fair start" timer ensures that both cars start on time, keeping the race fair and playtime, if two kids are racing, argument-free. Still, there's a level of skill that makes the competition even more fun as kids try to gauge the starter and be the quickest to react. It's fun to see which Hot Wheels cars are the fastest and watch the winning car land right in the snare. This is classic racing fun for Hot Wheels fans that combines racing and competition with a relatively simple but highly engaging variation on racing.

Team Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare is for ages 4 and up.
