    I prefer your second sentence. I would also say "... with every step". "Prepare to be amazed at every step" suggests that every time you see a stair (a step on a staircase), you will be amazed.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
