Besides all that is included with your admission ticket, you'll want to jump in on some extra fun. Note that these are optional special events, and you need to buy additional specific tickets in advance.

“Evening with Ryu Asada” Dinner – Thursday, Oct. 6: Born in Japan, designer Ryu Asada joined Mattel at the recommendation of Jun Imai in 2004 on the Matchbox line. He moved over to Hot Wheels in 2012, banging out fan favorites like the '67 Chevy C10 and the Honda S2000 (inspired by his own daily driver). Dinner guests will receive a souvenir dinner car (produced by Mattel, limited to no more than 1,500 pieces), T-shirt, pin, and more. Seats are limited and usually sell out quickly, so get yours early!
