The Step 2 Extreme Coaster – Is It Worth The Investment?

The Step 2 Extreme Coaster, which is the next level up from the Step 2 Up and Down Roller Coaster, is a weather proof, sturdy, well built toy made from double wall construction and has been built with safety as a priority. It is gravity powered therefore there are no mechanical components to be concerned with nor are batteries needed.

The way the Extreme Coaster works is by the child pushing the cart to the top on the tracks and then riding down the tracks in the cart. A great benefit in that it helps the child to vent that abundance of energy which most children have while having a fantastic time with the coaster over and over again.

The car has safety grips enabling your child to hang on for the ride. The track holds wheels of the car securely so there is no chance of the wheels coming off on the way down. Of course adult supervision is recommended while children are using the coaster to ensure it is used correctly. It is necessary to ensure the pathway the cart travels on after coming to the end of the track is clear of people and debris. Note that it will depend on the surface the step 2 extreme coaster has been set up on as to how far it will travel once the car reaches the end of the track. Again, depending on the surface and age of the child, it might also be a good idea for the child to wear a bike helmet. Safety should always be the primary concern when dealing with our precious children.

You will need a little space to enjoy the toy to its fullest as it is quite large measuring about 3-1/2 feet high, 2-1/2 feet wide and 11 feet in length. The Step 2 Extreme Coaster has total of 8 feet of track so your little one should have lots of fun with this ride. Some parents have set the toy up in their garage, yard or even a spare room inside. It can be used in winter, spring, summer or fall and will stand up to all weather extremes.

Children aged from 3 years old up to 10 years old can ride the extreme coaster depending on their weight as the maximum recommended weight by Step 2 is 75 lbs or 34.1kg. Some reviewers have stated people up to 200 lbs have been known to use it, but I certainly wouldn’t recommend that. It is however, sure to be a big hit with the neighborhood friends.

With child obesity on the rise the Step 2 Extreme Coaster is an ideal toy to introduce into any home giving children plenty of opportunity for exercise, fresh air and also encouraging them to be active while having lots of fun and enjoyment. Children love watching their siblings and friends ride the coaster, so it is a group toy which is entertaining for all involved.
