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.

  1. You have a significant amount of product available for review. I like the fact that you’re showing both US and UK  swing sets and play sets. I’m also impressed with the fact that there’s plastic, wooden and metal sets available for purchase as well. I think you’re righthand column featuring concrete patch and other products makes a lot of sense to me. Because I might be interested in purchasing some of those additional accessories when I purchase the swing sets.  I am currently evaluating these products and will likely make a purchase in the near future so these reviews make my decision much easier. 

  2. I share the back garden with two other families with children and we were looking for something in common to be able to give to children. I came across this post and it was a revelation. The other parents also immediately agreed on the choice to make. The topic is treated with knowledge and well explained with an excellent technical sheet. Thanks to Ryan for sharing his experience on this swing set from Gorilla as I never heard about them until now
