Once you have answered these questions you can start thinking about Which Air Track to Buy.
There are plenty of toy options on some of the big webshops these are priced at about £60-100 for a 3m. They’ll do the job for a short while. These cheaper tracks are more prone to damage and seam degeneration so are only really made for occasional light use. They are usually only 10cm deep and so will not stop the user from hitting the ground. The thread cound will be lower than the commercial tracks and so the track wil be more prone to bubbling. The actual track material is also a cheaper plastic that will puncture and split easily. These tracks need to be protected on matted ground therefor increasing the cost.
