So the playground is alot of work comes in 4 huge boxes. I recommend adding additional layer of stain/waterproofer. Factory coating is basic. Load berring is over 1k lbs so it can hold plenty of kids with plenty of room to play. Offers swing climbing covered sitting area and a really cool lookout post with seeing eye scope slideand mokey bars. Moderately priced with great play options. I would say deffinetly the best value for the money. Would recommend to friends and family
This swing set is just as described and fairly easy to assemble. Everything needed is included and marked fairly well. Just lay things out before you start and get yourself familiar with each part. Some pre- drilled holes needed a bit more drilling but that happens in any pre-drilled project. Would recommend this to parents or grandparents looking to fin d a pretty sturdy swing set. It doesn't LOOK like it will be sturdy, but as you assemble and put things together, it is amazing at how sturdy it becomes.
My twin toddlers love this swing set. It feels like a swing set that they can grow into over the course of several years. A couple of the pieces were broken/cracked when they arrived, but Gorilla sent replacement parts at no charge. Overall, the structure is very solid and keeps the kids entertained (and mommy happy).
Not a day passes the kids aren't on this playing. It's a nice set, I'm glad I bought it. It was delivered on time, all parts there, no problems. It's been a great play set, I've had no problems at all.
Can't beat this set for the price. My children and their friends love it. It's not quite as solid as the large redwood sets, but then again, it's also a third of the price. Assembly was pretty straight forward. A lot of screws, bolts and wood. Once everything is laid out just follow the step by step process. Took me about a day and a half on my own.
Thank you so much fore the prompt service. Everything was fine. William the Estes delivery man was very nice. He called about thirty minutes before he came just as Vickie said he would. I love the swingset and I am sure my granddaughter will too. Thanks again!!!
Our kids LOVE this playscape; we assembled it in about a week (1 few hours each evening after work) and its great. We didn't attach the roof yet b/c it's too short for our 6 year old as she'd likely bump the top of her head. We are in the process of trying to figure out how to raise it a little higher before putting it on. Great purchase for the price and my kids (ages 4 and 6) love it. Directions were easy to follow.
Unless you have a healthy tool set and have built fairly complex things in the past hire someone. Instructions are clear but effort level higher than expected. Took 3 guys 2 full days. Very nice set, tire swing is hard plastic and not so great, rest of set is very good quality and seems to have everything in one package. Daughter loves it, looks very nice in yard.
Lots of things for my 3 year old to do on it. It seems well built but I have only had it for a few months now. I did take about 6 hours with 4 people to put together. I would recommend laying out all the parts in order first as it did help speed things along. I was worried that it was going to be this monster sized swingset but it is exactly the right size for my little one. Overall extremely happy with the purchcase.
The only reason this does not receive a 5-Star rating is packing and shipping. The pieces (almost 1,000lbs of them) are packed in 8 flimsy cardboard boxes that were totally destroyed by UPS Freight by the time they arrived. Additionally, UPS Freight only delivered 7 of the 8 boxes orginally and told me that the 8th box was just consolidated into one of the other boxes. Only after I pointed out that the missing box contained the Tube Slide did they admit that perhaps they lost it. After waiting for 72 hours for UPS to investigate the missing piece, I got the great news that they found it and were delivering it. The next day I returned to a box on my doorstep that looked like it had been run over by a steam-roller. Overstock to the rescue and a new Tube Slide was quickly shipped out. Unfortunately this whole process meant that the entire playset was not delivered for about 1.5 months despite being "in-stock" when ordered. The damaged piece was UPS Freight's issue, but the flimsy packaging is the product's - thus I subtracted one star.
On to the product. I consider myself a somewhat handy person and found the assembly to be fairly straightforward and the directions easy to follow. I assembled without any assistance - even with the swing beam assembly. It did take about 12 hours in total over 2 days - but the end result is completely worth it. High quality wood, sturdy construction, and the kids love it.
There were no instructions in the box but we found them online. It did take several days to build but we are very pleased with the end product. We were missing about 4 small pieces of hardware but we were able to purchase them at the local hardware store.
I gave it a 4 star because the color is not as bright as I thought it would be. On the second day I noticed fading on the steps. I also would make the platform with the green canopy a bit taller and a bit more spacious. Other then that I love the set
Kit included everything needed except the drill bit was too short, so I bought a 10" long drill bit from the hardware store. Everything went together well and it is very stable. My kids love it. Took about 3 hours to build with 3 adults ... much of the time was spent figuring out the instructions - they aren't bad instructions, but leave out a few details.
I did pay my lawn guys helper and his dad to put it together.
But was worth the money. A lot of wood and things. But when it came together... and the grandkids saw it.... GAME ON..... It did take about 12 hours and my son helping late on to get it done in time for labor day.
But adults and kids alike love it. ( and yes all of us adults tried it out.)
The slide is awesome heavy duty. ( kids like it a lot )
The tire swing held 5 kids.
They love the walk up plank, the ropes are strong. they lined up for the slide.
The ladder climb is awesome, but does take a little getting use to for the smaller ones.
It did come with a ladder for option over plank walk up. ( we put it in storage).
It came with anchors to put in ground.
It is solid and sturdy it will go nowhere.
The swings are awesome.
I do recommend getting the wood roof. It is inter slot lock so it will not leak.
The fort is awesome held all 6 kids at once.
The picnic table is half size. But that is great.
We did not put the sand in the box. ( you do not need it ). especially if you have animals or ants. ( It is good to go with out it.)
It ships at 867 lbs. UPS will call you with a delivery time and date. ( they worked around our time).
We live way off the main road, so if you live out there they can and will deliver.
I did ask for or suggest that they deliver in smallest freight truck due to where we live. and they did.
I do suggest if you live off the grid as we do that a man be home to help off load it by hand. The driver can't do it alone. One box came with 92 pieces of cedar. ( and yes it is all cedar).
I have 4 grandkids that live on my compound ( as I call it ) and 2 of my rental's kids and all play at same time.
This set has given kids a new reason to hurry up and get homework done. So they can go play. ( A big plus ).
Before I bought this kids wanted to play on computer or watch tv all day now they are out side playing where kids should be.
All holes were pre partially drilled. so easy to put up.
I can not say enough good things about this set.
It says to age 11.. ( LMAO) It goes to adults.
We all tried it out and so will you.
The price yes it is on the high side, but we looked and shopped and this one is worth every single penny spent.
This play set will bring years and years of happy times for my grandkids. and probably their kids.
Axel 6 was here and got to help put it up.
When my son got home later that day and the forte was up and swings in place and all coming together.... All Haylee could say was WOW. coming down the drive way.
If I could give this 10 stars I would.
Now I am looking to expand my home park. ( And yes they call it the park ).
I say buy...
Shipping was free and quick, which was great. Quality of swing set was good. Plenty of extra screws and bolts were sent. Only negative is the instructions were a little hard to follow. Good value for a cedar swing set.
Kids love it, it was a pain putting together.. We did it in spare time and it took around 15 hours to complete. Husband works with drills and power tools so it was helpful but time was a little consuming for us.. Good luck!
