You'll have to be in California to join the experience.
Gearheads never grow up, their toys only get more expensive, and in some cases they hold on to their childhood toys for life. Collecting Hot Wheels cars has been a massive movement for decades, with some collections being valued at millions of dollars. These die-cast models have featured in popular culture, and continue to represent some of the latest automotive creations such as the Tesla Cybertruck. If there's one thing Hot Wheels know how to do well, is to bring joy to the hearts of car fans, and its latest effort is sure to be a hit. Hot Wheels has launched its "Ultimate Drive-Thru" experience at the Toyota Arena parking lot in the Los Angeles suburb of Ontario, and it's set to blow minds this December.
For the month of December, Hot Wheels will be displaying a massive range of automotive legends and exotic models in a mile-long trail at the Toyota Arena. Cars on show include the legendary Bigfoot monster truck. Hot Wheels worked around the limitations posed by the coronavirus by designing the show around a drive-thru theme, which means people can enjoy the show from the comfort of their own cars. Standout features include the four-story-tall Megasaurus robotic dinosaur and legendary Hot Wheels designs such as Deora Two and Twin Mill. The 30-minute tour will be accompanied by a special audio guide.
"The Hot Wheels Ultimate Drive-Thru was a natural fit for us, said Ken Hudgens, president and CEO of Raycom-Legacy Content Company. "We are always trying to think of how to best engage Hot Wheels fans - and because we can't tour the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live show right now, we wanted to create something new. This Drive-Thru will be a safe way to do something new, unexpected, creative, and fun."
Those attending can expect to pay $45 per car or $65 at the gate. The price includes a three-pack of Hot Wheels cars, and a photo. There's no limit to how many people are allowed in each car, so bring out ye Chrysler Voyagers.
