If you’re worried your StairSlide is too fast, there are measures you can take:
Leave a step uncovered at the bottom of the StairSlide.When you think of a standard playground slide, the end never goes straight to the ground; there’s usually at least a foot of space between the ground and the bottom of the slide.
+ For younger kids, they can slide on their belly feet first.
Cushioning counts. Going fast can be fun! But going fast without the proper cushioning? Not so fun. Pile the softest, plushest pillows and the comfiest couch cushions at the bottom of the StairSlide.
For younger kids, try sliding on the belly with feet first. Toddlers learn to go down the stairs by crawling backward; so, if your child isn’t comfortable sitting up on the StairSlide, they can still have fun sliding on their belly!
Use the Low Impact setting. The StairSlide can be set up in two different ways: High Adventure & Low Impact. High Adventure is the standard setup, but Low Impact allows the slide to end on a slower gradual slope. For visual depictions of the two setups, read our blog post, More Than One Way to Slide
