Product Description

Product Description

A rampaging gorilla with smashing fists and chomping teeth is threatening the amusement park! Watch as the gorilla's fist pounds cars off track, while his other hand diverts the cars into his mouth. Experience high speeds, stunts and crashing action as you race to aim the stun gun at the gorilla before he destroys the roller coaster. Motorized track also features manual override so you and your friends can play the part of the gorilla, too. Requires 4 "D" batteries (not included). Measures approximately 26" x 22" x 31" when set up.

Amazon.com

In a sort of "King Kong meets roller coaster" theme, this game requires that cars race to stop this angry gorilla from doing harm to vehicles and drivers. In automatic mode, the motorized booster launches cars vertically up the 30-inch tower of track and through hair-splitting upside-down spirals on the way down. The tricky spot comes after the loops, where cars must avoid getting smashed by the ferocious gorilla’s pounding fist and knocked through the trap door into a cage. A diverter lever switches cars to an alternate descending track with a different peril to avoid—the gorilla’s other gigantic hand. This time, the gorilla tries to grab vehicles off the track to crush them within his powerful jaws. The gorilla "wins" after munching a car four times but kids can also beat the gorilla by completing 10 laps. With each finished lap, a stun gun on the roller coaster’s base raises another notch into the air until it finally fires, knocking the gorilla out cold. The game can be set to manual mode for two players, allowing one person to be the racer and another to control the ape. Although complicated to set up, online animated instructions for this playset speed up the construction; however, adult assistance is definitely required. This track set requires four "D" batteries. --Cristina Vaamonde

I guess they never test it and it's very miss leading.

The gorilla's arms didn't work at first but the gorilla was not snapped on correctly and the smashing arm didn't work until it was adjusted correctly.

The gorilla's fist stopped hitting the lever in the right place, so the cage portion didn't work right.

First, I am not a Hot Wheels fan. I've been disappointed too many times with their shoddy products and can't believe Mattel has been profiting on this line of toys for so long.

That said, I must admit this toy is not too bad. My five-year-old son wanted to buy it with his birthday money. Assembly was not as laborious as previous Hot Wheels products, such as Swamp Beast. He has been playing with this set all afternoon and it hasn't even fallen apart yet!

I wouldn't say it is very loud, and it doesn't make any highly irritating sounds.

All in all, I have to say I would recommend this toy.

P.S. My son wants to add a few words: I love it when my dad plays with me. Gorilla Attack is great. I love it when the cars go in the Gorilla's mouth, and I love it when the Gorilla smashes the cars into the cage. I love it when the Gorilla gets hit and falls over.

A few reason not to get it . My biggest complain being not every hotwheels will work on it. In fact I tested all the hotwheels my son has and none works except the one come with the set. 2 el cheapo small cars worked but couldn't stand the abuse of the Turbo Booster .

Other than that the track is very high speed, and it fails about 1 out of 10 times even with the stock car. It hasn't shoot the car out that can harm my son but mother and grandma is very worried. Also the hand of the gorilla suppose to hit a lever and hummer the car into a car cage. But when I set the set on carpet the gorilla misses the lever all the time. It works better on kitchen floor but the manual says make sure to set it on "carpet". I guess it's going back to the store tomorrow.

I would had kept it if most hotwheels will run on the track. I bought it from Toy R Us and their display used just every hotwheels there is. I guess they never test it and it's very miss leading.

We bought this toy for our 6 year old son. After carefully constructing the track, and spending alot of time trying to line up the tracks correctly, we gave up. The pieces never fit correctly to have a car actually travel one complete circuit. It was very disappointing to our son and us. We kept it put together in his room because he could manually push the car around the loop but the Gorilla's arm kept falling off and the track would crumble with the slightest touch. I do not recommend this product at all! We threw it away within 2 weeks of purchasing it because it was a waste of space in our son's room.

This toy was given to my son (5) as a birthday present and while I understand boys are rough at this age, the toy has broken several times. The tracks don't want to stay together and the Gorilla does not want to stay up. Maybe I got a lemon? It can be fixed and when it's working, my son loves it!!! It is a fun toy and I have had loads of fun with Kyle, but a child under the age of 5 really should not have this toy. Also, anyone with a puppy should not own this toy...ours likes it too much!

My sons got this for Christmas last year, and they played with it for about 2 weeks, then gave up. I put it together exactly according to the instructions, and the first time we attempted to put the car through the track it flew off and hit my son. He wasn't hurt, just startled...but still. After tweaking the track for a very long time, we eventually got it to work. My kids were frustrated that only a handful of their very large Hotwheels collection would actually work with this toy. The toy's track soon got out of the very precise alignment it apparently has to be in, and the cars started flying off again. The gorilla's fist stopped hitting the lever in the right place, so the cage portion didn't work right. My kids must have decided that the aggravation wasn't worth it, so now its sitting in their room, unplayed with for months. Now, I'm realizing that its going to be a big pain to dissasemble and store.

This is one BIG DISSAPPOINTMENT!!! This received one star only because 0 stars wasn't an option.

My 4 year old twins wanted "Gorrilla Attack" so bad from Santa Clause last year. This was all they talked about. Well Christmas came and the time it took to put this disaster together wasn't worth it. It eats batteries in minutes, 4D's at that. It constantly fell apart. My boys were always crying that it came apart again. The car that came with the toy didn't work, and my boys have over 200 hotwheels/matchbox and they could only get one of those cars to work. Within a couple of weeks it was completely out of commission.

It is a shame that this toy failed so miserably especially for the cost, which I believe we paid $40.00 last year for. It looked like it would of been a really neat toy if it actually worked and didn't fall apart every couple of minutes.

I felt so sorry for my boys because they were anticipating having a lot of fun playing with this Gorrila Attack. This year my boys at first wanted the "Hot Wheels Terrordactyl Track Set" but I reminded them what happened with the "Gorrila Attack" they got last year from Santa and they changed their minds right away stating, "they didn't want Santa to waste his money or time on junk like that".

After the shoddy construction of the Hotwheel Gorrilla Attack Track Set, I plan on never buying any track sets made buy Hotwheels again.
