Assembly: This is the only maddening part of the thing. The instructions look like a photocopy of a photocopy of a photocopy. It would have been easier if it was in color as well. I consider myself pretty handy, but it took me almost two hours to assemble. Not all the holes lined up so I had to drill out a hole to make up for one. This is pretty disconcerting, and I don't think most people would like to do it. Otherwise it is not too bad. Step 2 would do a lot better if they improved their quality control. Is it too much to ask for a pilot hole for a screw? Finally, read very carefully in the instructions for the use of the different size screws. There is a little picture to hold the screw against to see if you have the right ones except for the one step that uses the longer size screws. For that step you need to read the sloppy microprint to see that you need a 3 1/8" screw instead of the more common 2 5/8" screw.
The end product is very sturdy and robust. All the kids have been crawling over it. It can hold an adult.(tested and verified)
Safety: It is pretty safe. No one has falled off yet. The car is in little tracks so it cannot go off sideways. The only danger would be if someone is in the way when you go down. The car would take someone out so we made a big deal out of it with the kids. So far so good.
I would highly recommend this toy. It is a hit, but be prepared for a little frustration putting it together.
*Very, very fun
*Easy to push up the ramp, since the entrance points are flared so it's easy to get it on the track
*Indentations for the back wheel of the car are at the top of the track so the car doesn't go by itself while the child goes in.
*Stairs make for easy pushing and easy getting into the car once the back wheels are settled in their grooves
*Car must be pushed past the aforementioned grooves (harder for little ones to do)
*Car is very low to the ground, similar to a Big Wheel, which means that the child cannot fall off the side
*Car has holes in the bottom of the seat so rainwater drains and it's easy to hose down
*Foot rests give your feet a secure place to go to avoid dragging shoes
However, I wanted to address some safety concerns brought up in other reviews:
*All children must be supervised at all times, children who are known to "dash" (like my 2yo daughter) should be held far away from the path of the coaster. (One idea is to create a riding line behind the coaster. Everyone who wants to ride must get in line far away from the path)
*If a child puts his feet directly in front of the car on the ground to try to stop it, depending on the angle they can pitch forward dangerously. Children can be taught to put their feet out to the SIDES of the car, heels down, to slow themselves.Read more ›
The coaster is fast, big, and fun. My girls love it, their friends love it, anyone young of age (2-12+), race, or sex will love it. It is easy to assemble, light enough to move around on the yard so that one spot doesn't get worn down too much, and it is very durable. Kids push the car up the front of the ramp with the helps of steps in the middle of the platform. They can the climb on, and use the hand rails to take off! My youngest girl is 2.5 years old and already has the process mastered. The car doesn't come with a seatbelt, but there are notches if you want to add your own.
This is one toy that has never gotten old or dusty. I can see my kids getting years of fun out of this one.
Almost 3 years later and this toy is still working strong! It is in great shape and the kids continue to enjoy it as do their friends. This really is a fantastic toy if used properly with some supervision and rules in place.
