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

    I bought this for my sons 2nd Birthday. I can't say enough how much he loves it! Even his older and younger cousins loved it ranging in ages of 18mths to 8 years old! I even took a ride to test it and it held my weight fine and was fun lol (my weight is 120lbs). I'm extremely pleased with this purchase and highly recommend it.

      My 13 year old son put it together by himself, not hard. Use a electric drill not a screwdriver. lay out all parts and study directions first. Directions could be more detailed. We watched u-tube video on assembly of this prior to assembly. My kids 9, 6 and 3 years ride it over and over for hours at a time. Good quality, I keep it outside all summer and in the garage for the winter. Do not plan on taking it apart once together. Would like if they sold the car separate so we could buy another.

        Colorful addition to our backyard playground for our very active 3 year old son. There are no rough/sharp edges and the pitch of the steps are easy for him to manage on his own. Easy to assemble if you have 2 people working on it and appears to be very sturdy. Unfortunately you will need to take some time to disassemble nuts/bolts if you want to store for the winter out of the elements. We've only had it for 2 months and no complaints so far.

          Lisa T: Yes! I have three girls ages 4,5 and six. I bought it two years ago and it is one of the best toys we ever bought. We also do birthday parties at home and use this and a bounce house we bought for entertainment. The roller coaster is always the hit of the party. Sep 6, 2013

          Amy W: My kids are 8, 6 and 3. They all still ride it, but as with anything else they don't use it everyday. When they do use it its a ride or two and then they're done. My kids are very creative so they also use it for general play. They set up different toys on the track, send cars down it, etc. When we have company it's always a hit with kids of all ages.

          A shopper asked: On a completely flat surface, would about 15 feet be sufficient enough space to stop the car if an adult was standing at that point? Apr 30, 2013

          Daniel R. S: 15' is NOT enough room.

          We have it set up with a 50 foot run on a tiled floor and still have to have pillows to stop it.

          I have one for my daughter and gave it to her when she was 3 1/2.

          She's 9 now, and still loves it!

          One of the BEST toys she has, gets a LOT of use out of it.

          Virginia H: Yes it would providing it's on a grass surface. Naturally the car would roll further than that if it's on a hard surface like a driveway or sidewalk or even packed dirt. Our set up is on a hill in the back yard and with the hill, the car rolls about 25 ft across the grass to a complete stop.
          15 feet on a flat grass surface would be about the space required, possibly requiring an adult to make a slight stop at the end.

          kimberly c: Yes an adult would be able to stop them. I have brought three of these and my grand kids love them. We even put it on a hill so they can go real fast. My grandkids ages are 6,5, 3, 3, 2 and 1 1/2 and they all use it. Its great. Apr 30, 2013

          Marie D R: NO. I have about twenty nine feet and it just stops in time. I really don't think shorter would be safe. Mine actually goes up hill a little too. MY KIDS LOVE IT!!! See if you can find the room they will really enjoy it. Apr 30, 2013
          Reply to Marie D Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
          Pauline N: I would say yes, an adult can stop the car at 15 feet, however our car tends to coast more than 15 feet on its own, on a mostly flat yard. Our children, ages 3, 5 and 7 coast close to 20 to 25 feet in our flat grass. Apr 30, 2013
          Reply to Pauline Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
          Theresa C: Yes 15 feet will work if you want to stop the car. This toy works best on grass or driveway that is slightly pitched. Obviously the greater the pitch, the faster the car will go. Lots of fun and very durable. May 10, 2013

          TANYA M: You have to screw it together, so you won't want to disassemble regularly. When I purchased this item, I thought I would do the same thing and store it in the garage. I didn't realize that the only way this thing is stable is if you completely screw it together. I leave ours out in the back yard, and my twin girls LOVE it. Very glad I bought this item! Aug 5, 2013

          Elizabeth S: We have a daycare and leave it in our garage...we open the door and slide it out and have the kids use the driveway to roll on...we have our older kids stop the little ones, once they reach the area we want them to stop. So, we don't take it apart, we leave it as is...it was very easy to set-up. The kids love this toy, thinking about buying a second one. Aug 5, 2013

          Lisa T: We bought this and it can be taken down but not easily. It is held together by screws so you would need to unscrew and reacted every time you take it apart and put it back up.

          Tammy G: Absolutely! It goes pretty far and fast as well. In fact, we always make sure that we are a safe distance from the trees. Of course, putting it on a small incline, if you have in your yard will also help it to go faster and farther. We got this for our daughters 2nd birthday and it has been a hit even with the 7,8 and 9 year olds. I myself have even taken a ride. Definitely a toy that doesn't lose the interest factor in a couple uses. Feb 27, 2014
          Reply to Tammy Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
          Jodi O: Yes it will, however if you have an incline that works even better. We have a flat area and then a hill in our backyard and the kids can fly down the hill and have a blast. It does still work on the flat but doesn't go as far. I would recommend not letting the grass get too long. Feb 27, 2014

          Pamela X: It will indeed zip past the end of the track for about three track lengths or so. You'll want to avoid hazards in that area and be prepared for your lawn not to be perfect there, small considerations given the fun factor. Feb 28, 2014

          Susan J: Yes. Especially if it's on a hill. It's really a fun toy. We have it for my 3 year old son. The older children in my extended family love to play on it when they come over. Feb 27, 2014

          Connie S: Thank you Cari! Another lady said about 15 minutes but I knew that was correct; it took us that long to put the smaller roller coaster together!
          Thanks again and Merry Christmas!! Dec 23, 2013
          Tami J: Believe it or not, 20 minutes. It is not as difficult as you might think. The color coding makes it incredibly easy.
          Aside from that, the toy needs to be placed where there is a lot of space. This could be indoors or outdoors. You will need adult supervision at all time. I am highly suggesting ADULT SUPERVISION!!!
          This item (that little green car) can seriously hurt someone. Case and point; as the car builds momentum when coming down the hill, the more extreme the ride. Anyone in the way-or in front of the vehicle will get ran over and seriously hurt!!!! I would suggest that everyone moves out of the way when activated. The heavier the weight, the more force. This car will not stop!! Another scenario: This item was the highlight!!!! Of our summer 2013 block party. Not the bouncy house, or face painting, or anything else. The Extreme Coaster is it!!! The children were crying because we had to break the item down. Barricades were set to avoid the horizontal flow of traffic and cars --probably 30ft.away. The extreme little green car was traveling vertically-parents had to chase the car to stop it from going into the horizontal flow of traffic. The car will not stop. You will need to place a serious barricade to stop it. I am in NYC, so there is no real yard space where I reside.
          This item is a lot of fun. Whomever you are giving it to will love it and so will the neighbors. Please share this information to avoid serious accident and injury.

          Connie S: Hi Tami,
          Thanks for the information and advice. We had the smaller coaster first and the extreme coaster is definitely much faster and more dangerous. We will have adult supervision while the kids are on it. I am taking the car inside for safety when the kids are not playing with it just to make sure a child or two doesn't happen by and stop to play with it while we are not here. We live in the country and have over an acre of play area so I am not concerned about the traffic. But, I do know what you mean about the car; just like a child on the swings, you have to make sure nobody is standing in front of it or they could get hurt. We also have the coaster in the grass and it seems to slow it down a good bit. My oldest grandson first tried a demo in the toy store and the car went a good 30 feet after coming off the ramp so I was aware of fast and far it could go. The grass really slows it down; I doubt it went 10 feet when he rode it this morning. Thanks so much for you answer. I do appreciate the warnings and will share them when necessary. Merry Christmas!!

          Tami J: Thank you Connie.

          Jason R: When I assembled the coaster I purchased it took me about an hour and I work in construction. Make sure you have some room to lay everything out to readily identify all the parts. Make sure you get a picture of the first ride down. The kids in the neghiborhood love this thing ! Good luck and merry Christmas Dec 24, 2013

          Thanks for answering my question. You were right. My husband is in construction too. An hour is about how long it took us with me just handing him parts last night.

          Lucia G: I have owned the Extreme Coaster for a couple years. It gets plenty if use with 7 grandchildren. We have never had an issues with the car. I suggest making sure some screws holding the track system together have not loosened and shifting the car slightly to the side. Other than that , consult the manufacturer. Good luck. Sep 13, 2013

          DOUGLAS C: We purchased an Extreme Coaster approximately two years ago. It has been used regularly by our grandchildren, ages 3 and 5, as well as much older and bigger kids, and still rolls sraight and true. It has taken alot of use and abuse but still performs like new. It would be my feeling that your car may be defective. Sep 13, 2013

          terry S: My grandchildren, now 3 and 6, have enjoyed this Extreme Coaster for over 2 years. It has been moved around the yard a few times. We just make sure track is pushed together tightly. This has been an all time favorite for them, and many friends that come to visit. A must have toy! Nov 2, 2013

          Bridgett K: The cart does NOT tear up grass. However, the grass below the track will not make it .... I suggest finding a spot and keeping it there. Maybe mulch under the ramp part. I tried moving it around a lot so we didn't kill the grass, but once rains and water gets in there -- kind of a pain to be moving around. May 14, 2014

          Tami J: I purchased for my grandchild when was one. She is now three. She was able to use it without my fear when she was three. I would like to share this information with you for safety reasons. Other than that, I highly recommend the toy.
          Believe it or not, 20 minutes. It is not as difficult as you might think. The color coding makes it incredibly easy.
          Aside from that, the toy needs to be placed where there is a lot of space. This could be indoors or outdoors. You will need adult supervision at all time. I am highly suggesting ADULT SUPERVISION!!!
          This item (that little green car) can seriously hurt someone. Case and point; as the car builds momentum when coming down the hill, the more extreme the ride. Anyone in the way-or in front of the vehicle will get ran over and seriously hurt!!!! I would suggest that everyone moves out of the way when activated. The heavier the weight, the more force. This car will not stop!! Another scenario: This item was the highlight!!!! Of our summer 2013 block party. Not the bouncy house, or face painting, or anything else. The Extreme Coaster is it!!! The children were crying because we had to break the item down. Barricades were set to avoid the horizontal flow of traffic and cars --probably 30ft.away. The extreme little green car was traveling vertically-parents had to chase the car to stop it from going into the horizontal flow of traffic. The car will not stop. You will need to place a serious barricade to stop it. I am in NYC, so there is no real yard space where I reside.
          This item is a lot of fun. Whomever you are giving it to will love it and so will the neighbors. Please share this information to avoid serious accident and injury.

          Bridgett K: Yes and they love it! I have had 1 year olds climbing to the top and coming down with little assistance. They also enjoy sitting at the top without the car rolling things down the rails. We have allowed all ages on our coaster and haven't had concerns about safety. This roller coaster is a huge, huge, huge hit! Dec 2, 2013

          Jodi O: We have had 18 month old kids ride it fine. I would recommend a soft landing surface (grass or padded) and not concrete. You may want to put a bike helmet on. As long as kids can sit up and are confident, they should be fine. We have never had kids fall out except when they are trying to. Dec 2, 2013

          Julie T: Hi Dani,
          The Extreme Coaster has a is taller, has a steeper incline, and has a faster ride. It may be longer as well. My three boys (now 6, 5, 3) have had the Extreme Coaster since Christmas 2011. The Extreme Coaster is still a big hit with all our boys and their friends. The steeper incline makes for a more thrilling ride and maintains the kids interest. Our now 3 year old has been riding the roller coaster ever since we purchased the coaster. Originally we had our youngest ride with one of his older brothers, but he's been capable of doing the entire ride for quite awhile now. I have complete confidence that our coaster will be ridden by our 3 month old daughter when she gets older. It is a very durable product.

          Jenny R: The step 2 up and down is a much smaller coaster than the extreme. the up and down is only about 1-1.5 foot off the ground at it's highest point, whilst the extreme coaster is about 3 or more feet off the ground at the top. The up and down is more suitable for younger kids (probably around 3 and under) and the extreme is better for slightly older children, from about 3 up. May 7, 2013

          George P: Dani,

          The up and down is more for younger kids. I had both and my son quicker grew out of the up and down by age 2. The roller coaster is really cool and at age 3 he is able to climb up it and put himself in the cart, and push the cart to go down the ramp.
