GX Racers Tightrope Terror Set

If you have a boy or girl who love race cars - especially race cars that can perform awesome stunts - you should definitely try the GX Racers and the Tightrope Terror Set from JAKKS Pacific.

The Tightrope Terror Set defies everything you thought possible about vehicles. Complete with over 10 ft. of tightrope, this set allows kids to race their cars on a thread!

You can use the Tightrope set in 2 different ways:

1. You can set up the thread between the 2 towers that come with the set

or

2. You can tie the thread onto 2 different items (ex. 2 chairs) and run the cars that way

The cars are powered by their special GX gyro technology.

The set up is fairly quick and easy. Once up and running you will probably find that the fun quickly turns into a challenge of who can make the cars travel the farthest!!

Click here for more information on the GX Racers and the Tightrope Terror Set.

Recommended for ages 5+

Take a few minutes to watch this very cool video on YouTube about the GX Racers!

My son and daughter have played extensively with these racers and this set over the last month. (And the truth be told...Mom and Dad have gotten in on the challenges, too! )

It might take you a little while to perfect your techniques on keeping the car on the thread so that it will travel a long way, but once you figure it out, it's a lot of fun!

Like I said in my review above, if you have more than one person playing with this set, it will quickly turn into a challenge of who can make the cars speed the longest distance!

It's fun for everyone!
