Following a successful debut at the Toyota Arena in Ontario, California last month, the Hot Wheels Ultimate Drive-Thru experience is heading east.

The Hot Wheels Monster Trucks fleet along with iconic rides from the Garage of Legends, giant robots, and some additional big surprises will make their east coast debut at Six Flags Over Georgia on Jan. 28. Created by Raycom-Legacy Content Co. in partnership with Mattel Inc., the special socially-distanced event allows families to experience a special showcase of more than 50 life-sized Hot Wheels vehicles and Monster Trucks on a course that runs more than a mile in length.

“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,” says Ken Hudgens, president and CEO of Raycom-Legacy Content Co.

The kid-focused experience immerses families into the Hot Wheels world as they drive through the course while listening to an educational audio experience.

Vehicles from the Garage of Legends will include Bone Shaker, Twin Mill, Deora II, Rip Rod, Loop Coupe, and more. Tiger Shark, Demo Derby, V8 Bomber, and more trucks from the Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live Tour will be joined by the original monster truck Bigfoot and other trucks from the legendary Bigfoot fleet.

Tickets for the event include a digital photo op and a three-pack of Hot Wheels vehicles with the option to purchase additional Hot Wheels and Bigfoot Toy Packs for an additional fee. The event is open daily for four weeks from Jan. 28 to Feb. 28, 2021.
