The Hot Wheels Trick Tracks is a product line that consists of action "stunts" that can be rearranged in any order. With very few exceptions, each stunt can be used as a start, a middle, or an end piece. They can be connected directly to one another, or have a track section installed in between. Each stunt can be activated by a car driving into it, or by pressing a (green) button. Stunts also have a rotational pivot and are easily resettable.

Trick Tracks were designed to have a high success rate of a variety of cars to work with them. The stunts are more tolerant to the varieties of shapes and sizes of Hot Wheels cars through the use of less powerful launchers and shorter distances between stunts.
