Main Pros Outlined:

  • Much longer wavy slide of 9 foot where most others are 6 foot or even less
  • Provides 3 swing seats where most other metal swing sets under other brands only have 2 swing seats
  • Rubber grips on the metal chains are great to protect your children’s hands and there are no splinters to worry about
  • Includes the fun and exciting fireman's pole where the kids can enjoy endless hours of fun and the assembly is a lot easier and quicker than several larger sets.
  • Includes solid, and strong monkey bars which are absent in many other metal swing sets
  • The construction of the galvanized steel and high-density polyethylene makes it very smooth to touch and play with
  • The superior powder-coating makes it weather and rust resistant and protects it against cracking, chipping or peeling much better than commercial sets.
  • Superior holding weight capacity of 150Ibs where normally other swing sets are 100Ibs or even 80Ibs capacity
  • There is no need for anchors or cement as it is free standing and is resistant to warping, mildew, fading and UV.
  • Includes a great warranty period of 5 years to give you additional confidence if you decide to buy and has less ongoing maintenance work than the wooden play sets

Main Cons Outlined:

  • No air gilder is included or a passenger swing where kids can swing together in tandem. It doesn’t come with a ladder either
  • No upper deck is provided which one would expect from a swing set with this price range or a canopy be it a with vinyl or wooden roof
  • Doesn’t have the shoe loop swing, sandboxes, picnic benches or accessories like the tic tac toe panel that many other wooden swing sets offer.
  • No tire swing, no rock wall, no climbing nets either which makes this swing set quite basic overall in terms of features and accessories, yet costs more than swing sets that offer these type of features and accessories.
  • On some occasions, the boxes can be slightly damaged on delivery and the slide can get too hot to slide on in very hot sunny days
  • On sunny days the coating on the metal chains can get sticky on the hands which is a little annoying and the bolts could be of better quality for threading

  1. These Lifetime adventure sets look awesome but the price is a bit on the high side. I wasn’t sure if we had enough space for it but the review and the dimensions outlined here have certainly cleared all that up. Good to know all the cons also so thanks for your honesty in that regard. Hopefully the kids will get lots of enjoyment from it once it arrives, a bit expensive but we wanted to stay away from woods type swing sets. I love the fact that you included FAQ in your writeup which has answered most questions i intended to ask

    • That’s great news and many thanks for taking the time to stop by and express your feedback, it is greatly appreciated. Regards, Ryan
