Backyard Discovery Skyfort II Swing Set is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 611.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad We opted for the cheaper version by picking this up in the store. We had read all of the reviewes and pre-read the instructions before even buying it. Took about 4.5 hours to lay out all the boards for inventory. At night I would build later sections such as Monkey bars, ladder, and rock wall in the garage. This made construction go much faster. After the sorting was all done it took me about 28 hours to build it myself. I recommend you put down four to six cement pavers for the main structure and pre-level them all to each other. That as well as leveling all the boards as you go through will prevent you from having boards that don't line up well down the road. Always pay attention to the pictures. Look at the positioning of piece S2 to realize how S1 boards need to be installed as the instructions do not cover that. Also I recommend not building the small roof and trying to install it as a whole. You may also want to get an attachment for your drill to attach socket wrench bits to it to make putting all of the lag screws in go much faster. I did that half way through and it made a huge difference in time. As for the play set its sturdy and holds up well. My daughter loves it and we have spent more time outside now that its built then ever before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Sam's Club Playground The Skyfort is the best playground hands down. The quality and price put it up there with more expensive playgrounds. My wife and I assembled one other smaller version of the Skyfort. I purchased the playground on sale, and was able to purchase-load-and go in about 30 minutes. Once home and unloaded, my awesome wife grouped all the pieces and marked the one's not clearly marked properly. Without her help I never would have gotten done in the short amount of time it took. We were short a couple of pieces, and the directions are not very clear; we were not new to this. Calling the 800 number put the pieces on our doorstep in about 2 days. It took about 30 hours to assemble and we added another slide for our son. These playgrounds are fun to put together and the quality of the materials is great. Have a plan before starting, plenty of tools and a weekend you can do it in. The kids love it. The Skyfort is holding its own; even against the BLIZZARD OF 2010!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from our kids love it! We have 5 kids ranging in age from 18 months to 9 years old. All of them love it! For the price, this definitely is one of the best play sets available. With regards to quality, the only negative that I have noticed is that the stain color is "skin deep". After having the set for only a couple of weeks, I have already noticed several places where the stain color is already wearing off (primarily on the steps leading up to the elevated play house). The color of the wood is lighter than the stain. This is not a big deal, it just makes me wonder how long the pre-finished stain will last. The biggest negative was the delivery. The man called the day of the delivery and informed me that he was driving an 18 wheeler. So is it just me or is it not ridiculous to use an 18 wheeler for a residential delivery? (BTW - The boxes could easily fit in the back of a pick up truck) He asked me if he would be able to turn around in our driveway or yard. Of course my answer was no. So I ended up having to meet him on the highway (we live in the country) in front of our house in a borrrowed truck to transfer the 5 boxes, then bring them back to our house. This may not be the norm, but I would ask to make sure when you schedule the delivery. We also chose to spend the exta money to have the swing set installed by the service offered by Sam's Club. Unless you just like the process of putting together hundreds of pieces of wood, metal, bolts and screws, then I would recommend going this route. It took one man working over 8 hours the first day and then two men working over 6 hours the next two days to finish putting it together. Knowing my skills at putting things together, we might have grandchildren before it would have been completely installed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Labor of Love After I received a quote of $2800 to build the playset I wanted from a local Deck company I decided to look elsewhere. I found this one that had everything I wanted and perhaps more importantly that my wife wanted. With some promises from my brother, father, and brother-in-law to help me build it, I thought it was worth a shot. When we opened the box, it was a little overwhelming with all of the screws, bolts, washers, and boards. I think the key is ORGANIZATION. Sorting the boards by the letter was a huge help and laying out the different bags of screws on an open table was equally important. Not all of the pre-drilled holes seemed to line up exactly right, but for the most part I would rate the instructions and precut wood at 8 out of 10. The manual said that it would require two moderately skilled workers 20-24 hours to complete. I found that to be pretty close to a minimum requirement-- as our schedules allowed and my help came and went- it took us 3 weekends to complete- some 4 hour days, some 7-8 hour days. It was a lot of work. After completion, it stands very sturdy. I would rate the overall quality at 9.5/10. If you have the (free) help needed to build this, it would be hard to beat the price. I would give the value of this product a 10 out of 10. Best of all, my two children, 4 years old and 18 months old, LOVE IT. They have played on it every day until there is not a bit of daylight left. Their smiles make all the work a distant memory!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Playset I researched for about 3 months on hundreds of different playsets and never found one that would meet our budget and still be a big playset. Then I came across this playset. I read all the reviews and only found maybe 1 or 2 bad reviews and those were only minor things. This is a very good playset for a good price. Yea, it's not a rainbow playset but those things are just rediculousy expensive. I am not going to lie, the directions are horrible. But if you have any wood working skills or mechanical skills then you will be ok. It took us about 18-20 hours to put together. I do wish that some of the boards were a little more stronger, but for my 6 year old and all her friends it will be just fine. All the neighborhood kids love it and I am very pleased with this playset. I would definetly buy another one if we ever had to. The only major problem that we had was one of the main floor boards was too small. I called the 800 number and they shipped me another one within 2 days with no questions asked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a great product. Not only did I order one but so did my parents. We watch my grandson who is 2 1/2, very active and over and above the charts for height and slightly above for weight. He loves this play unit but does need assistance with the monkey bars and sitting on the swing...something to grow into. I read the reviews and the best one says to sort the boards and use posts it notes to write the letter and number on so easier to read and secure with scotch tape; and organize the bolts, screws, nuts into advise. My husband, son-in-law and I inventoried the four boxes in 2 1/2 hours. My husband, son-in-law and brother (all of which very good carpenters) built our unit in 16 hours. When my parents unit arrived, me and my mother (71 years old) inventoried it in 4 hours. Due to work schedules when my parents unit came my brother and husband assisted them one day for 9 hours and over the next 4 days, my parents (dad 74 very good carpenter) finished it. Having that extra hand to hold or lift is very beneficial. Just a few of the boards had some bow in them and this did require some strength to get them positioned just right. The main pointer they learned the beginning you are putting side pieces together, rock wall. ladder and slide before starting the middle section. The crow's nest is not done till later in the directions. So on the second unit, they jumped to the back of the book and did the crow's nest before starting the middle section. It was much easier than trying to build it up in the air squeezing through the small access (for a large adult) opening. The unit is as nice as the picture shows!
