We love Nerf. Over the years all the kids have had Nerf products. Olivia being a fan of the Rebelle range but when we received the Nerf Nitro Rapid Rally a few months back, she absolutely loved it. Subsequently so did my nephew who has now borrowed it never to give it back! So when we received the Nerf Nitro AeroFury Ramp Rage as part of our Hasbro Toy Tribe Duties, all the kids wanted a go. But I left it to my 2 mini testers to give it a good testing. After all, if it can sustain vigorous play from them and keep them entertained it deserved a round of applause (and a good review).
Nerf Nitro AeroFury Ramp Rage
The set comes with 2 cars and a ramp as well as the Nerf blaster to fire the cars. Although this is a small set it can be used with others in the range and additional sets can be bought separately. It is recommended for ages 5 plus. Require 4 AA batteries which are not included.
The set is pretty easy to set up, all you need to do is insert the batteries, load the cars and you’re good to go!
My nephew took the first shot. You push down on the handle on the base, press the trigger and fire the cars at the ramp. We had the ramp all over the place and he literally just aimed and fired. As you only get 2 cars, you are loading and firing frequently. As he has the rapid rally, which can take 9 cars, he was a bit disappointed so if you already have the same one, this may not live up to it purely due to the limited number of cars. But this about the ramp fury and not the rapid fire.
What wasn’t a disappointment, however, was the speed of the cars. They fire fast. Really fast so look out if they are flying in your direction. So if you are aiming at the ramp, move it further back as we found having it too close made us miss it hitting the ramp. Also, do it in a nice big open space. My sister uses her long hallway usually so there is less risk of them hitting things and causing any damage. The cars may be foam, but at these speeds, they pack quite a punch if you’re in their way!
