The cars wind up and zig zag down around the hill. The graphics on this are detailed bright and clean. It meqasures about 33 inches extended.
The cars are 3 inches. This is how it works: Wind cars, place on start and in station house. When it gets to the top, it releases the one in the station house.
The first one goes down the track and the second one is now in the station. However, because of the angling up of the extrended part of the track, the first one does not have the power to get the last few inches to the start arrow on its own.
I have to move it to the arrow then it continues the circuit. But the new owner can'tweek' the winding.Still, very fun to watch the two of them zoom up and down the track.
