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™:

    We purchased one for our grand kids for Christmas. they loved it. so we purchased a second one so they could race each other. We make sure someone is right with them when they are playing on them. If not used correctly i could see how a child could get hurt on them.

    Comments about Step2 Extreme Coaster™:

    Bought this for my 7 grandsons who range in age from 8 yrs to 11 months. Everyone of them enjoy playing with it. Might have to buy a second one so they don't have to wait as long for their turn. The younger ones scream when they have to get off of it. A HUGE hit at our house.

      Comments about Step2 Extreme Coaster™:

      We bought this for our 2 year-old grandson. He absolutely LOVES it!! Since he's so young, we keep the car itself inside the garage so he can't use the coaster without adult supervision. We haven't shown him he can climb up the coaster and that helps also that he doesn't try it alone....although I think he would be fine. I wish you could hear/see him laughing and screaming with his hands up in the air when he rides it. Best gift so far. :-)

        Bought this toy for our grandson's 3rd birthday. Perfect toy for a perfect age. The grandparents and his aunts and uncles purchased this toy. Kids have so many little toys we decided to get him one gift from all of us. He loves it. Easy to get on and off. Can play by himself or with someone else. You don't need a big backyard. Hours of fun. Great gift

          Can you put the Extreme Coaster on grass?
          I read in one of your responses not to.
          Julie Q on Apr 13, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: We placed the coaster on the grass in our backyard with no problem, just ensure the base is stable. Even with the grass over 4" tall, our 4 year old son is achieving distances between 25-45 feet! Make sure the ramp is not aimed in the direction of any hazards such as buildings, driveways, roads, or water.
          Hello, can You send it to Belgium?
          Stephanie C on Mar 28, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: Hi Stephanie. Unfortunately, we are unable to ship directly outside of the 48 contiguous United States.
          Is there a recommendation about having this product on ground cover or a cushion surface and if so what is it? Also for your smaller roller coaster too?We are a preschool who owns several of these and our licensing agency asked me to check with you if there is any recommendations for these items.
          Shelley R on Mar 27, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: Children really need to wear a helmet when using the Extreme Coaster; if a child leans while going down, there are only small wheel guides to keep the car on the ramp.

          We placed the coaster on the grass in our backyard with no problem, just ensure the base is stable.

Make sure the ramp is not aimed in the direction of any hazards such as buildings, driveways, roads, or water.
          Is there any difference in this Extreme Coaster vs the model from 2013 other than color scheme?
          Jen G on Mar 22, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: Im looking to buy a step2 coaster which is best for age3. the up and down or the extreme?
          Why is the picture different from the video of the slide? The colors are different and it looks like there's an extension on the slide in the video.
          A shopper on May 2, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: The purple/orange/green Extreme Coaster colors are no longer available. We also do not offer an extension to the Extreme Coaster.
          Can you buy additional track"?
          A shopper on Apr 25, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: No, we do not offer additional track for the Extreme Coaster.
          If I wanted to purchase two cars for this model, is that possible?
          A shopper on Apr 12, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not offer additional coaster cars for the Extreme Coaster™.
          I'm shopping around for the Extreme Coaster and I've noticed two different colored models. I'm assuming one is an updated model. The older one appears longer while pictures of the newer model seem like it may be steeper. Were there improvements made other than the color scheme? Were there problems with the older one?
          A shopper on Apr 10, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: Never mind! I just read question and answer above. No difference other than color.
          I have the Up and Down Roller Coaster. I take it apart, box it, and store it after the grandkids leave. Can I do the same with the Extreme Coaster? Thanks!
          A shopper on Apr 4, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Extreme Coaster can be disassembled, stored and reassembled as needed.
          Hi is this product going to be available in the uk?
          Dawn B on Mar 29, 2015
          BEST ANSWER: Hi Dawn. Unfortunately, the Extreme Coaster™ is not available in the United Kingdom at this time.
          Does it need to be completely disassembled/reassembled for storage? Can the track be removed from the base without needing lots of unscrewing? How big is the base plus first track section?
