Does the Tower of this product also have the grooves in the shape of car tracks like the Tower set?
This play set was a major purchase for me, but I took a chance and bought it for my grandchildren. I'm so glad I did, it is just an outstanding play set, the quality is definitely like you would see on a public playground, and I can tell that it will last for many, many years. It took three adults two full days to put together, with a little help at one point from a much younger neighbor who was willing to climb up on the climbing wall and screw down the roof panels for us older folks who were hesitant to stand on the top of a ladder to do so. That was the only part of the assembly that gave us pause. The directions were very clear and as long as we took the time to lay out the pieces for each step and go over it carefully before attempting to assemble, we had no issues. The only negative was the delivery, which has nothing to do with the product itself - the delivery company refused to use their forklift and bring the pallet with the playset boxes into our garage from the driveway, instead they opened the package on the truck and handed down individual boxes of parts. We would have preferred to have the pallet brought into the garage (the truck easily backed up into the driveway, it was a matter of 10 feet or so and they had a small forklift, the driver just refused to bring it down and use it). Definitely worth the investment....

I thought this was really heavy duty and everything is but the slide. The slide is now bent from flexing when being used about 2 1/2 feet from end. Slide is not made from very good quality plastic. I would have expected a much heavier plastic than this.Read More

My Father and I put this together in one solid day. 9-5. We did start some mild assembly of the first step the night before and organized the parts which likely added an hour or two. Easy to assemble with very good directions. We followed them to a T and it worked out well. I will say that the roof assembly was only for the agile and steady, as you are up in the air and balancing on the rails. A very large ladder may have worked but I just climbed it. Some mild scratches here and there but minimal. I did NOT receive any touch up paint as others have reported. I will try to make a call and get some as I do worry about rust up here in PA. The playset is solid and just made it thru 60 mph wind gusts of Sandy last night and did not budge. Thing was 600+ lbs shipped. I have to really watch (I am his shadow) my 3 year-old as it is too advanced for him but I did not want to buy something smaller and upgrade in a year`or 2. Probably good for 5-10 year kiddos. Lots of fun so far. I can swing without it tied down or anchored and I go about 185 lbs. I climb all over it...but no slide. My son races down that slide like nobody's business though. Can't say I like to trim the grass around it and may be forced to make a "play area" to save my sanity in the spring. We shall see. Very pleased. Hope for no rust...that's my ONLY concern. Plan to get years and years out of it.Read More
Overall, I am happy with this playset and I foresee my kids enjoying it for many years to come. It is good quality and durable. I got the green and tan one, and it blends nicely with the landscaping. The one and only down side of this play structure is the assembly. It took much longer than expected, due to some missing hardware and the fact that they included the wrong cargo net. Lifetime's customer service was excellent, and they replaced the cargo net without issue. My husband assembled it mostly by himself over the course of two Saturdays. In the end, we are happy with the purchase and are pretty sure that it will last until the kids are grown and beyond.Read More
It's a good product, but it's NOT made in the USA. Most boxes are clearly labeled "China". I purchased it, in part, because I thought it was an American-made product. I don't doubt that some of it is, but I certainly wouldn't suggest the majority of it was. Had to re-drill some holes, not a big deal. Definitely needed a 2nd person to help put it together. I don't think I could've done it without my wife's help. Took a couple of days to assemble. Make sure to align things as exactly as you can prior to assembling because it's a big pain to undo things and extremely disheartening! Already noticing a little rust after a month. So I suppose I'll have to repaint it. Overall, it is a solid, reliable play set with some small knocks. I've personally used it for pull-ups and the like and it feels quite sturdy.Read More
I bought this set about a year ago and have wanted to review it every since. First off, it is great and people ask about it all the time, so get used to answering questions if it is in a spot that people can see it. So far no maintenance has been needed. I will caution that while you do not need a perfectly level spot, it does need to be pretty good. Also, I put this together by myself in about 10 hours, two days of 5 til 10. I used a cordless drill a lot with the proper bits instead of the tool provided. So, it is possible to put it together by yourself, but some help would have been nice.Read More
Had planned to buy a wood structure, but came across this better value. Great price and very little - if any - maintenance involved! All the other reviews indicated the durability and the ease of assembly. It appears very durable. The assembly was very easy - the instructions were very clear/accurate. The rope ladder is definitely as difficult to set in place just as other reviewers have indicated. We were cruising along before and after that part of assembly. It took our neighbor laughing at our different positions attempting to leverage the vertical post into place with the rope ladder for him to bring a cheater bar and his added help to finally get everything in place. We had to request some touch up paint from Lifetime to cover up where we scratched down to the metal. It looks like it may be stainless, so it shouldn't rust. I still give it 5 stars - the rope ladder is a small part of the assembly and once the set is assembled - we'll never need to mess with it again.Read More
Questions & Answers
Hello savyshopper, we are still researching this and should have the answer shortly.
Why did you choose this product?
After further review, I like the fact that it is made out of steel instead of wood. And plus maintenance free is a must have.
After spending much time researching and reviewing wooden playsets, I came across this product. I had my husband read the information of materials used and he was quite happy with it. I also watched the video and read the reviews that were posted and felt that this was a much better investment than the wooden structures. I hope that I will feel the same way once we get it. :)
Just bought and will be installing soon. Need to know length and width of area needed to accommodate the set. There is one listed here but now sure if this includes to the end of the slide or not and which direction is considered width and length?Obviously I need to allow for extra space to land at end of slide. Gonna do rubber mulch. Any help would be appreciated.
Hello aliciajoy00, the overall dimensions are about 14 feet long (side to side) and 16 feet wide (front to back) You will need a minimum distance of a 6 ft perimeter from the widest point of the playset to any obstruction. This is called the Safety Zone. The Safety Zone for this item is 27 ft. 9 inches x 29 ft. 8 inches. The instruction manual will specify safety zone requirements, fall heights, and a chart listing recommended ground covering depths. We hope this helps. Thank you for shopping with us.
what does this is virtually maintenance free mean from video?
Thank you for your interest in the Lifetime Adventure Playset. Unfortunately we do not have access to the video that you have because it is provided by the company and there for contact needs to be made with the manufacturer of the product to see what they are describing to you in a specific place. Thank you and have a great day.
