Main Pros Outlined:
- Awesome built in picnic table underneath included which is ideal for snack time, break time or relaxing
- There is also the upper deck treehouse with working shutters that will be a major attraction for the kids
- One of the main attractions here also is the awesome 360 degree Tire turbo swing which adds another play dimension to the overall playset for spinning and twisting – the design won’t allow water or debris to collect inside the tire either
- The kids will love the beautiful deluxe climbing ramp and also the wooden roof for shade
- Again, all the cedar wood is already pre-cut, pre-sanded, pre-stained and ready to assemble in your own yard.
- You have the safe knowledge that you kids are safe at home in your own backyard in a secure place.
- Instead of a Vinyl canopy, the upper deck is protected with a tongue and groove wood roof against the weather elements and provides shade.
- Additional toddler swing seats or other configurations can be added to give further flexibility.
- The swing beam is very solid and strong coming in at 4 by 6 inches and can hold 425Ibs separately
- The soft rubber grippy plastic coating on swing chains helps to protect against finger pinching
- Attention to detail in delivering all the parts needed for assembly is excellent including all the small parts
- Underneath, there is a spacious sandbox with corner seats and a great selection of accessories is available which include the telescope, steering wheel and the tic tac toe panel.
Main Cons Outlined:
- There is only one slide available to play on where other models under the Gorilla brand have 2 slides available
- There is no air glider included or a passenger swing where 2 kids can swing together.
- No shoe loop swings available either or a clatter bridge for the upper decks
- There is only one upper deck area where other models under the Gorilla brand can have 2 decks
- No radical tube slide is available which is seen on the more expensive models.
- Assembly requires a lot of time (8 to 12 hours) and hard work, attention to detail and ideally a team to help you.
- Various tools are required to get the assembly job done – otherwise it will take a lot longer to complete.
- Upper deck dimensions are fairly small which limits available play activities up on top.
- Needs to be regularly maintained and treated over time from one season to the next – do not leave untreated as you need to follow the maintenance programme.
