Questions & Answers
Swing-n-Slide Chesapeake Wood Complete Swing Set
Kerri from Apopka, FL– Verified Buyer
This was a Christmas present for our kids so we had to build it at night. It took about 24 hours total for my husband and I with a couple flood lights. The monkey bars are definitely the most difficult part! I'd advise you to read all the directions and unpack (and sort) all the wood before you start!

looks good, but some of the lumber chipped. just hope they made a better type of wood. 34 done in one day. my daughter loves it!
Chesapeake Swingset- pretty good
njdawn from nj
We had 3 men come to build this thing, took them 2 full days. The slide is flimsy. We had our 12yr old nephew do the monkey bars and the whole thing shook. Our 2 kids, age 7 and 6 are ok on it. But when we used it for a birthday party, I thought it was going to break apart and collapse. I would not recommend it for groups of kids or heavy kids. I would not buy this set again. I'd pay double and get a good, heavy, sturdy set or consider a metal set. We will put a sealant on it to try to preserve the wood but never again!

We bought this for our 2 year old twins. It's still a little mature for them because they can't get up the ladder rungs or the rock climbing wall themselves yet, but they love it otherwise. We did modify the angle of the rock climbing wall a little because it was just too vertical, so we had to buy some extra rocks for it. I do love that Swing N Slide has so many extra accessories that you can purchase to add on to the swingset. We still haven't done the monkey bars part because it's going to be a while before our kids can use that. I think overall it was a pretty easy put-together, taking my husband and father in law most of one day and then we did the finishing touches the next morning. This set it nice because it has so many features in one swingset. The picnic table is great for little kids, and the whole thing is very sturdy.
Well made, instructions could be better

Well made and good/solid quality. Just hope wood holds up. Plan on spraying with deck sealer later. Took 1 1/2 days to put together. Will need at least 2 people some times during construction. Ended up with several screws/lag screws and boards at end. Then realized 2 large lag screws should have been installed where it appeared only 1 - instructions were not clear. Suggest calling co. if any questions. Part numbers on the wood pieces are not same as in instructions so will need to measure/sort before starting assembly to make sure you use the correct parts.
PRE DRILL HOLES
WOW SR. from Metairie, LA
The overall quality of the swing is good. Would be greatly improved with pre-drilled holes. It says this is not necessary, but I found a lot of boards starting to crack, regardless of the drill speed (slower was less likely to crack the boards). The manufacturer was very helpful in supplying missing/damaged parts.
Better Than I Expected But Not Perfect
Phins from Charlotte, NC
Most helpful act was to take the time to separate and identify all of the pieces ahead of time, and please don't take my "man-card", but to read the instructions.
My kids love this sturdy swing set!
Caroline from Fort Myers, FL
This swing set is very sturdy. We were looking for something that our 3 kids could enjoy after they outgrew our old set. They are 10, 7, and 5, and I feel like it is very safe for all three to enjoy together. It is taller than some other price-equivalent models, so it has a "treehouse" effect.
I would buy this again
Toni the mom from Burlington, Vermont– Verified Buyer
This swingset is everything we could ask for;but thank goodness we contracted a handyman to assemble it for us! It took him and his fellow handyman 11 hours to complete!! These guys build for a living! I was glad we had budgeted to pay someone; but i thought maybe 4 hours tops!!
for for little kids
The girls momma from California– Verified Buyer
Great for little kids. bought it a few yrs too late for my 9 yr old. It is time consuming to put together and can be unsturdy if not put in ground well. little rickety for my 9 yr old daughter, but 4 yr old loves it.
