Probably the most fun expansion for the game. It can be very difficult to get up the ramp!

Awesome!

The ramp up is tough, but easier than the jump (which I now only play as the tunnel). This adds more to the game, good for people with smaller tables, or for fans like that just like stupid additions that bring nothing but fun.

BTW, the Styrofoam works fine. It doesn't slip, tip, or scratch my table.

Hmmm...I feel like I've paid too much for this expansion.
The styrofoam braces that the elevated tracks stands on make me feel ripped off....

After playing it a few times, I do think the track braces suit their function well. But, I have two children, and likely the children will like this game. My worry is that the braces being styrofoam, they will get picked at, and eventually destroyed. Perhaps hollow plastic, or a simple wooden (cheap balsa wood even) block would have sufficed, and have been more sturdy? I'm not sure these parts will stand up to repeated years of use, and for the price tag (even at a discounted e-tailer) I expected a bit more.

Other than that one major flaw in the design of this particular expansion, I find it adds a new dimension to PitchCar (literally) by elevating the track. This injects more difficulty, and a lot more variety into an already superbly designed, and fun game.

This was the last expansion I bought for Pitchcar. It took me a long time to justify the price especially in the face of some otherwise mediocre reviews. You don't get a lot of components for the price. Acknowledged. Don't let that be the hurdle for you that it was for me. Dollar for dollar this has given me the same value as the jump which is the expansion that I feel makes the game. The second level is a very interesting and challenging feature. Getting the speeds right to make it up the ramp without flying off is a challenge. Provides for some tense moments with cheering and groaning. Falling off the second level onto a previous portion of the track is also a fun risk to try and navigate. Lastly, this set allows for some really unique setup options and allows you to pack a lot of track into a small space with is great for small to medium tables. To me this is an ESSENTIAL expansion. Don't wait around like I did. Grab it now.

Strongly recommend it. Jumps add a lot to a track.

More PitchCar = more fun! Adds ramps and racing on an upper level. For most people, the basic PitchCar set is sufficient, and other expansions offer more value, but this still adds more fun to the base game and although it's pricey, it's worth considering for the PitchCar completist.

A must have expansion for any serious Pitchcar fan. Ramps take the game to the next level.

I don't know how much the 2nd story really adds to the gameplay, but it definitely makes the tracks look more impressive.

Awesome expansion to PitchCar. I don't get the negative reviews, except from people who take this game way too seriously.

Agreed, not much components for the money. That being said, if you enjoy making cool tracks, this adds much to your fun. The elevated track parts are a bit less stable, but that's not too bad.

Initial remarks: Surprise gift from Essen. I couldn't be happier or more surprised!

After a couple of plays, I find that the split-level tracks can be quite challenging - almost too hard!

I wrote a review on this. And it still stands. I'll get my moneys worth out of it, but it was still very expensive for what is in the box. And it won't go into every track, because sometimes it just slows it down too much.
