Pre-made track obstacles

I was thinking of trying to produce some outdoor track obstacles with the idea being that you can design different tracks rather easily. Some ideas I've came up with are ramps and whoops. I'd make them small enough and light enough that even kids could pick them up and move them around, and even put them away when not in use. They'd also be used to simulate dirt obstacles when you can't dig up the yard.

Do you guys think that I've got a good idea?

Re: Pre-made track obstacles

that sounds like a good idea. you could make them out of thin plywood fairly cheaply and they'd be light weight. maybe some jumps and bumps. you could get real creative and make some type of berm for the corners.
