My rating: 98/100
The Hotwheels Minecraft Ghast Attack Track set includes styled track pieces that resemble the wildly popular video game that has been brought to life by Hotwheels and Minecraft!
After browsing for ideas for my sons presents for his birthday I came across this toy and thought how awesome it was as it combines to of his favourite things which is cars and Minecraft.
The Hotwheels Minecraft Ghast Attack Track is based on the video game and surrounds a Minecraft character called a Ghast which are gigantic mobs from the Nether that float and are very hostile. They shoot fireballs that explode at players in the the Minecraft game.
As with anything to do with Hotwheels this set is based on a track and making things whizz around it and in this case it is minecarts.
The object of the theme is to lose yourself in your imagination now as a child this is easy as imagination is in abundance which is what we want to encourage as parents.
So thinking like a child we must defeat the Ghast from the nether world by launching our favourite mini character in the minecart up the loop aim for the giant Ghast’s mouth which will open and close. This is how the nether menace is defeated!
This track is easy to set up and includes picture directions making it easier for older children to set up on there own. Once set up it’s all about timing of the launcher which you need to be just right so the cart can make it through the mouth of the Ghast. Don’t for get the cart has to make it completely around the loop-de-loop before challenging the mouth of the Nether monster making it a fun challenge!
A bonus for Hotwheel fans is that this track is a universal fit with other Hotwheel tracks so you if you have other tracks then you can design one giant track! If you get bored of the carts you can use Hotwheel cars on here as well.
You can also use your own Minecraft mini figures or buy extra to prolong the fun of this cross themed toy.
The Hotwheels Ghast attack set comes with track pieces resembling the video game along with The Minecraft Pigman mini figure and one minecart.
The main character “The Ghast” makes up the main part of the track and is the main feature of the track.
The Ghast is part of the track and will challenge your gaming skills off-line! Simulate authentic game moments and live out your Minecraft™ adventures with Hot Wheels!
The Dimensions of the toy when set up are : 3 x 18 x 10″ and weighs 499g so it is a very manageable toy to store and does not take up much room and as you can see from the image below this is how it compares to an older child:
Hotwheels suggest that the recommended minimum age for this toy is 3 but I would suggest from 4 years old and upward with adult supervision as there are choking hazards with this toy which are unavoidable due to it’s design.
Where to Buy
I’ve had a look around to source the best places to buy this toy and Amazon seems to be the best choice for UK customers.
I suggest that you go for Amazon where the best offer that offers you the most security is the Amazon fuliment offer.

There are listings on Ebay as well but a lot of them will be shipped from the USA so you need to take into account the shipping charges that make it twice as much: see Listings
For customers in the USA I recommend Amazon where the cheapest listing is $34.52 with free shipping.
