We set this up on flat ground until they got used to it, and now, we have it on the top of the hill and they have a longer, thrilling ride. Best ages are from 2-6, and, with many children, instead of purchasing a 2nd car, the children wait their turn on numbered poly-spots(circles)at the bottom of the coaster. It is organized and fair. My children are 41/2 and 16 months, love this ride and their friends do too!
* It was easy to assemble. Just don't forget to put washers on both ends of the screws!!!

Bought this for my son's 3rd birthday; took longer to assemble than to give birth to him (and probably more painful); the parts were the wrong size (the nuts and bolts didn't match up; the bolt went right through the plastic hole - needed to add washers to keep it together); needed 3 trips to the hardware store; none of the holes were pre-drilled, so that added to the time and frustration; once assembled, it's a fun toy, but the set-up wasn't worth it

    Comments about Step2 Extreme Coaster™:

    The kids love this toy! I bought it for my nephew and nieces (3, 5 & 9) and they've played on it for hours. It's set up in the basement for the winter but it will be great for outside in the summer. The car goes quite fast so either have a long runway or use carpet/grass to bring the car to a stop. The pieces fit together in a clever way - does take some mechanical aptitude to assemble.

      Comments about Step2 Extreme Coaster™:

      I purchased this coaster directly from the manufacturer, customer service, price, and shipping speed were great. This was a Christmas gift for my 2 boys ages 3 and 9. They absolutely love this thing, it's a riot! They play on it every day and it doesn't get old.

      The coaster is well designed and easy to put together. I like the fact you can take it apart in the middle with just 2 bolts to make it easy to move or transport. When I started putting it together in our basement I was concerned I would have an issue moving it upstairs and outside in the future, but the 2 bolts will make it a breeze. This feature does not compromise the construction in any way. I feel the step coaster is well engineered and made of solid construction. It was super simple to put together! Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product if you have young kids.

      One thing to note about assembly: there is a small plastic cap included in the wheel hardware. I didn't know what it was for until after the fact and the instructions are not clear on this piece. Use it to hammer the axels through the wheels to avoid damaging the plastic end caps on the wheel / axel assembly. It looks like a little black plastic hat.

      Buy this toy, you will NOT be disappointed!

      We bought this for my 3 sons - ages 2, 4 and 6. They all love it. We've kept it indoors for now - we use pillows on the "catching" end. Its fantastic. They have a ball! And the track doubles as a ramp for their toys and cars.
      My husband had it together in minutes.

      Comments about Step2 Extreme Coaster™:

      We already had the smaller roller coaster in our yard and our grandchildren enjoy it time and again so getting this extreme coaster has given them another faster option. It's easy for them to push the car back into place and get themselves in but so far launching has required adult assistance. Even on the grass this little car will go about 20'!
