Sportspower Mountain View Metal Swing Set with Slide & Trampoline

Main Features to Note:

  • Includes the 2-person flying glider with foot rests attached
  • There is the patented flying saucer swing which has the reinforced inner webbing and can hold up to 2 kids at a time
  • Kids can rest safely inside the saucer, swing, relax and chill out
  • The saucer uses a 4-point chain hanger which is designed for better stability compared to common chain systems that are 2 point only
  • It also has the patented 42 mini trampoline which adds additional fun of bouncing on a trampoline
  • Can entertain as many as 8 kids at the same time each with a maximum 100 lbs each (Supports up to 800 lbs total)
  • As standard, it has the crafted heavy-duty 2-inch powder-coated steel tubes for more durability and sturdiness
  • Also has two wide blow-molded swings with safe vinyl chain covers to protect hands as they swing with friends
  • The slide is larger and durable 6-foot 6-inches (78 inches) and is a one-piece blow-molded slide for easy assembly
  • Suitable for kids aged 3 to 8 years and the size dimensions are 178.74 by 95.67 by 74 inches.
  • Please note also that it meets / exceeds all ASTM safety standards
  • The price when last seen on sale at Walmart was in the $200 to $280 region which of course can be double checked below.

Main Pros Outlined:

  • A 2 person air glider is included which is always a great way to have fun with a best friend
  • Has 2 blow molded seats which are strong and sturdy
  • It also has a longer 78 inch raised slide which is 6 foot 6 inches long – longer than many others
  • This swing set is also ideal for larger families as there are 6 separate play stations available
  • It can entertain 8 kids at the same time which is perfect for play dates, parties or entertaining neighbors
  • It meets all ASTM safety standards for added security for your children
  • It has the weather-resistant steel tubes for added protection against various types of weather elements
  • Includes a super nest swing or patented flying saucer which tends to be the favorite part of the set
  • It also has the safe vinyl chain covers to protect your children’s hands and prevent finger pinching
  • The patented flying saucer swing is great for relaxing/ resting, chilling out and of course swinging
  • It includes the 4-point chain hanger for the saucer for extra stability as they swing when many others only have 2
  • The saucer nest swing is also wider at 45 inches than many others we have seen in the market
  • Assembly time is a lot lower than larger wooden sets and should take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours to complete (trampoline is additional time)
  • Of course, it has the blow molded seats which are wider for extra comfort and mobility and a fair price overall

Main Cons Outlined:

  • No trapeze swing is included which will be a disappointment for certain children
  • The overall assembly takes a lot longer to do and needs careful planning and attention to detail
  • As it is larger, you will need more space in your yard to accommodate it.
  • There is no mini see saw either that several other models can offer and the screw caps should be better
  • It could be more slightly sturdier overall especially the frame when it comes to heavier children
  • No shoe loop swing included which again will disappoint some children
  • Please note that there are no anchors included so this will be an added expense to you – ideally these should be included in the overall package
  • The trampoline is more difficult than you would think to assembly and requires a lot of strength and power
  • Missing small parts have also been reported by a select few which is extremely annoying and delays assembly time.
  • More care and attention should be taken by the packing department to ensure all the correct parts are 100% included.
  • Lacks the superior stability of wooden swing sets and replacing with toddler swings should be easier to do
  • Price level tends to be $200+ but is definitely worth it if you have the extra money to spend.
