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™:

I got it for my 2 year old boy's birthday, he has played with it everyday, figured out the stairs, how to lock to car in place and push himself into the ramp. My girls are 4 and 6, and they are enjoying it too. It is safe, only because of its height, either my wife and I will stay close by, I believe it triggers motor skills and engineering skills. I even enjoyed putting it together with him trying to help me.

    Comments about Step2 Extreme Coaster™:

    I'm a Step2 Ambassador and was given the opportunity to review the Extreme Coaster. This is the COOLEST toy ever and by far my 4 year old's most favorite Step2 toy of all time! He can push the little car up the ramp by himself and launch himself off the ramp. Repeat, for like an hour. "AGAIN" he'd shout! I've seen the Extreme Coaster online, but the photos do not do it justice on how FUN it is. This is the kind of toy that he won't easily get bored of and huge bonus points for the coaster providing him an energy outlet because he has TONS of it.

      Comments about Step2 Extreme Coaster™:

      As a Step2 Brand Ambassador, I was beyond thrilled when the opportunity arose for one of these to be delivered to my doorstep as part of my gig for 2015.

      We'd tried the coaster (and it's smaller cousin) at friends' houses in the past, and the one thing that sorta held me back from buying it was the color scheme - which USED to be pretty vibrant, and didn't really match the rest of our toys or yard. Simple fix - change the color, and that's exactly what Step2 did. Not only does it have a more attractive green/navy/gray color scheme, but the decals have been updated to more of a "racing" theme - and my daughters LOVE that.

      While my girls are on the younger side of the spectrum, the enclosed "car" has a weight limit of up to 80lbs, which means they have room to grow - and the bigger kids we know can join in the fun.

      The tracks also make awesome launch ramps for diecast cars and monster trucks.

      Our only downside right now is that we got ours when snow was on the ground... so I set it up inside. Yep, you need some major room to use it as an inside toy, so definitely go outdoors with it. That's where ours will be when the snow finally melts.

        I ordered this for my 4 year old birthday party and all the kids had a ball on it. From age 4 to 14 and I myself 34 years old went for a ride..lol! IT is very sturdy and my son has a ball on it.

          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.
