Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun I recieved this item for free to review, but this is my own opinion. The vertical launch kit was very easy to put together. The kit coming with the command strips was a plus since I did not have to go out and buy any. My son was so excited to get to play with this that he started running around in circles. As for play it does pretty well. Sometimes if you mash the lever too hard the car will fly off the track, but I saw no other issues while my son was playing with it. Overall this is a really good hot wheels track and my son enjoyed playing with it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looks cool but functionality could be better it takes a bit to get this set up as you have to let the 3M sticky mount set for an hour before you can finish assembly. my kids struggled with getting the launch pad to get the car all the way up to the top so that it could go down one of the other features. That resulted in them just putting the cars in the top and then the track came away from the wall often. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge! And a massive hit My son loves this wall track. Be warned though it takes up a lot of real estate. Almost 5 feet tall and 4 feet wide. It comes out from the wall five feet too. But, that’s part of what makes my 7 year old so enraptured with it. If you’ve got the room go for it. I can’t imagine any little boy being disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Fun!!! My 7 year old son was sooooo excited when he saw the box on our porch!!! The assembly was easy with the template to help line up all the command strips. My son was a little impatient and didnt want to wait the whole hour while the command strips adhered. Prepping the remaining track helped pass the time. My son has been playing for over an hour now and keeps bringing more and more track upstairs to add to the fun!!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ultimate track set for Hot Wheels fans One thing I didn't account for when choosing this... SPACE! You need a good amount of wall space and play space to put this together. You also need someone who is patient enough to put this together as it's not for the younger ones to put together. Pretty awesome set-up for traditional Hot Wheels sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hours of fun!! My son loved the Vertical Launch Kit! It allows connections with other Hot Wheels Tracks (as typical) but it brings out more creativity in kids. The loop set up also works for some of the heavier cars which isn't always the case with some loops which was great. Would definitely recommend. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Up! Down! Around and around! I was not sure how my 7-year old son would respond to the Hot Wheels Vertical Launch Kit. He has a rather extensive collection of Hot Wheels (mostly entertainment themed) but mostly likes showing them off instead of sending them along tracks. However, he was pretty excited to see the box and suggested we immediately “set this bad boy up”. The prospect of sending cars up and down walls was apparently very appealing to him. I was nervous about setting this playset up. After all, there are many pieces to affix to the wall and if they aren’t properly aligned, there is no way the cars can successfully traverse the tracks. Fortunately, Mattel had a solution that I did not anticipate. The complete setup process took more time than my son could tolerate. However, we were able to perform the initial steps together. We assembled the double(!) loop and the spiral pieces rather quickly as this was familiar terrain that simply involved attaching track to track. As parts were put together, the full capabilities of this toy began to dawn on both of us and my son couldn’t wait to start playing. Unfortunately, that is when the second stage began, and waiting was necessary. Stage 2 involved attaching the wall frame assembly to the wall using the supplied 3M command strips. Now, in Mattel’s defense, the instructions for this process are clearly labeled “Read Me First!”, which I didn’t do. If I had, I could have attached the strips to the wall first and built the loop and spiral while the adhesive was setting. Live and learn. The good news is that there is a template that gets taped to the wall with cutouts corresponding to where the command strips need to be placed. No measuring needed! After installing the strips, just remove the template and let the strips set. After an hour, we attached the frame assembly to the wall. There are simple levels built into some of the pieces to assist in getting everything aligned correctly. At this point, the track pieces get attached to the frame and the fun begins. Now, before putting this playset together, I thought kids would simply drop cars down the tracks like I did in my youth. Nope. There is a manual launcher that, if pressed hard enough, sends the included car up the wall where it takes one of two predetermined paths. You can either have the car sent down the wall into the double loop or have it drop through the air into a chute that sends it through a spiral. There are spring-loaded covers at the entries to both options that help keep the car from flying off the track. Any other additional track and playsets you have can be attached to the exits of either route to continue the car’s journey. All of these options do require quite a bit of space. The frame assembly goes almost 5 feet up the wall and is 4 feet across. The launcher and double loop need approximately 5 feet of free floor from the wall. But Mattel addressed this issue by including built-in storage for the track. When not in use, you can minimize the floor footprint by disassembling the track pieces and storing them in the frame. Putting them back together and reattaching to the frame takes mere minutes. But when all is said and done, the question is “is it fun?” And the answer is … “yes”. My son really enjoys seeing his cars in action and having alternative ‘stunt’ routes is a big plus. Some cars do work better than others; Hot Wheels come in a variety of shapes and there is a lot of action going on to accommodate them all. But my son has made a game out of seeing which of his cars work best. The time-consuming initial setup is worth the results. This may the playset that finally moves his collection from the storage and display cases into actual play. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! My 6 year old absolutely loves this track. My husband helped him put it together, and it has been the only thing he has wanted to play with for over a week now. He loves the launcher to launch all of his hot wheels through the loops. Would definitely recommend this product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
