The Colossal Hot Wheels Crash Track Set is now down to $53.50 (Reg. $90), more

Walmart is offering the Hot Wheels Colossal Crash Track Set for $53.40 shipped. Matched at Amazon but currently back ordered until late February. Regularly as much as $90, today’s offer is nearly $15 below our November 2019 mention and the lowest price we can find. Measuring out at over 5-feet wide, this is no ordinary Hot Wheels set. In fact, it is the “biggest boosted set” the company has ever released. Featuring a dual figure-eight track design, players can fling cars through the air or into the ground-level crash zone to create epic Hot Wheels collisions. And don’t worry, the 5-feet of track can easily fold up and stored away when not in use. Rated 4+ stars from over 420 Amazon customers. More details below.
