Terrordactyl

Posted by Adventure Boy on January 27, 2010 at 9:24 pm

I like my Terrordactyl set. It is a HotWheels set that launches a rubber pterodactyl and catches cars. You put a car in a circle of track, and you pull a lever, and it goes around the circle and around the track and if you pull the lever again fast enough, you can get it to go around again. If you do this over and over, you can get it to go around multiple times.

After six go-arounds, the seventh will go off a different track and hit the trigger for the pterodactyl to fly. Sometimes the pterodactyl catches the car.

This is a toy that definitely takes some skill to get it to go around multiple times. You have to pull the lever the exact moment the car hits the switch. This is not a toy for a small child, because it takes some patience to put together and you have to match the letters to put the track together.

I think this is a good toy. it is very entertaining to put together and play.

  • I have seen this toy in action and it is just exactly as Adventure Boy describes. The Amazon comments are not very good, though. I think this is because these people do not see the fun of putting car tracks together, and they are buying this toy for three-year old children. This is a set for the seven and up range, I would say, for exactly the reasons Adventure Boy pointed out.

    There are online instructions for assembly that make the process very easy, as well.
