Hot Wheels Roto Revolution Track Set


We have been having lots of fun these 2 months playing with all the great toy releases for Christmas, including the latest Hot Wheels playsets Hot Wheels Track Builder Stunt Bridge that I've published last week, and Hot Wheels Roto Revolution Track set, which is exhilarating! If you love to see stunt cars doing many loop-the-loops consecutively, then read on!

Hot Wheels Roto Revolution Set (RRP £49.99, suitable for 5 years +) comes with 2 Hot Wheels cars and 2 launchers, Roto Revolution turning base (requires 4 x D batteries), 3 loop tracks, 2 toggle switches (to flip between tracks), connector that connects the toggle switches and instructions.

We love the colour combination for the set, and assembly is easy with plenty of instructions as well to help you with them (it really is quite easy though). We also love how cool it looks even before we turned it on!

We were a bit surprised to see the base rotating slowly, as we expected high speed action with this set. Our prejudice was wrong of course, and as soon as we launched a car inside the system, our jaws dropped!


This is such an awesome set!

It was a good thing that the base rotated slowly so that we can gauge the timing for launching the car into the system. There are 2 entrances located next to each other, so if you want 2 cars in at the same time, the ideal case is for the first one to get into the first entrance, following straight by the second car into the second entrance. If the first car got in through the second entrance, it will have to stay in the system long enough for the second car to join in through the first entrance when it reaches the launcher.

Getting both cars into the Roto Revolution set is definitely a challenge, testing players problem solving, strategy and accuracy skills. It might seem difficult, but you'll be rewarded with some amazing actions!

We also found that the orange/ blue car is easier to do the stunt and it can also stay in the system for much longer. The pink one felt heavier, was harder to launch into the entrance, and we only managed to get it do one loop-the-loop. So there is definitely a difficulty there with each cars. We still need more practise before we can get both cars racing in the Roto Revolution, but we aren't giving up just yet because we would love to see both cars racing!

Although we haven't mastered it yet, we think that the Hot Wheels Roto Revolution set is fantastic and we would definitely recommend it for thrill seekers!

You can buy the new Hot Wheels playsets now in all good toy stores.
