Step2 Up & Down Roller Coaster Review & $50 Gift Code Giveaway

Winter is approaching, and outdoor play may be increasingly difficult for snowy and cold regions of the US. Kids are driven indoors, and if yours are anything like mine, they get stir crazy about 6 hours into the first snow day.

On those days when you wish you could just head outside and play, you’re going to have to figure out a way to have fun with your kids. Let me ask you this: Is there anything more fun than a roller coaster? I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s no way you can’t love the Step2 Up & Down Roller Coaster!

Lift up your hands and start screaming with joy…

You’re not mistaken. This is a roller coaster that you can have for your home. And it’s incredibly awesome. When it arrived, we were running an errand. We pulled in to the driveway, and Andrew looked at me and said, “THERE’S A ROLLER COASTER ON OUR PORCH!”

I could hardly contain my excitement! We got the kids in the house and put the big kids down for a nap. I shimmied the box up to Maisy’s room, and started setting it up.

It’s a pretty big box! I was only armed with scissors to cut the tape, and I hoped that I wouldn’t need any tools to put it together. I was so pleased to find out that it’s a simple snap-together assembly. I was done with assembly in about 5 minutes, and I did it myself!

See? Super simple photographic assembly instructions. Love it! The car was even fully assembled already!

It was so much longer than I expected! There’s 10 feet of track that goes up and down and slopes down to floor level. Make sure you’ve got enough runway space for your kid to keep on rolling after they roll off the coaster!

The car sits up at the top, and the rear wheels sink into little notches that keep the car in place until your child is ready to roll! The purple steps are on either side, allowing for easy access to the car.

Maisy climbed up on to the car…

and then the joy began! Check out this action shot!

I can’t keep a straight face when I look at this picture. I love it so much! She had such a great time, and kept riding over and over!

The Up & Down Roller Coaster can hold kids up to 50 pounds, so my 5 year old will be able to ride it as well! It’s such a fun toy, and I can’t wait to see my kids’ faces when they see it set up under the tree on Christmas morning!

    Aside from this roller coaster, I would love to get their all around wagon as well! The boys would love to go for a ride.

    The extreme coaster is fantastic…brings back memories of very happy visits to a little amusement park for me when I saw this stunning toy…

    These baby toys are great and as I saw the Spiral Spin Top it brought back memories. It’s the 21st century version of the spin top toy that gave my children many hours of joy!
