If you like Hot Wheels and live in Southern California, here’s a social distancing event you can enjoy from the comfort of your own car that might interest you. It’s the all-new Hot Wheels Ultimate Drive-Thru
, debuting at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, CA on December 3, 2020. This once-in-a-lifetime experience, which will run through January 2, 2021, will showcase more than a mile of 50+ life-size Hot Wheels vehicles and Monster Trucks, and offer experiences including photo ops and more.
“The Hot Wheels Ultimate Drive-Thru was a natural fit for us. 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,” said Ken Hudgens, President & CEO of Raycom-Legacy Content Company. “This attraction will capture the Challenger spirit of Hot Wheels — both in theme with Hot Wheels Monster Trucks and legendary Hot Wheels cars, and the way the whole experience is presented.”
The unique, kid-focused drive-thru experience offers fans a rare opportunity to travel through the largest life-size collection of Hot Wheels vehicles ever including Hot Wheels iconic Deora II, Twin Mill®, Rip Rod, Loop Coupe and Bone Shaker. Also starring in the lineup will be the original Monster Truck, BIGFOOT® and its extraordinary fleet featuring the popular BIGFOOT #5, the world’s tallest and heaviest monster truck. Other fan favorites include Tiger Shark, Demo Derby, and V8 Bomber.
As the Drive-Thru in the title implies, guests will travel through the exhibit in the comfort of their own vehicle that will also be accompanied by an audio element, plus a special in-car photo experience.
“We are always looking for new ways for fans of all ages to engage with our portfolio of iconic brands,” said Julie Freeland, Senior Director of Mattel Global Location Based Entertainment. “With our new Hot Wheels Ultimate Drive-Thru, we were committed to finding a completely new way for fans to experience our vehicles from the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live arena show, from the safety of their cars. This will be an amazing attraction for families this holiday season, especially the kids!”
The Hot Wheels Ultimate Drive-Thru will open weekdays and weekends throughout its 4-week run at Toyota Arena parking lot, with flexible pricing ($45-$60) for online and on-site ticket purchasing.
A free Hot Wheels 3-Car Pack comes with every ticket purchase. Ticket purchasers can also pre-purchase exclusive Hot Wheels and BIGFOOT merchandise bundles to be redeemed at the event. For more event information and to purchase tickets click here
