Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Countrygirl All the kids love this playset!
We purchased this playset 4 months ago, and after MUCH use, I must say that this was a great investment! This playset is very well made with the top quality cedar and hardware! The cedar in this package (Gorilla) is thicker and more durable than other brands. the hardware is also far superior! It took a team of 3 of us 13 hours to assemble in 1 day (we worked all day, only breaking for a quick lunch) so in that aspect, it's a bit of a beast. The instructions were easy to follow if you take your time and pay attention to what you're doing. Our playset arrived on a pallet with 6 or 7 boxes. It is important to sort through your pieces and organize according to piece numbers (everything was well labeled) It was easy to sort while the tower is being assembled. If you assemble this correctly, you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ESGCH3 Great playground
I purchased this playground two months ago and it took me 4 weekends to put it together. I had some help from a friend, but did most of it by myself. The playground came in 8 boxes and the instructions have over 50 steps. I was a little overwhelmed at first, but the instructions are very good and the drawings are very clear. My kids, age 6, 9 and 13 love their new hang out, especially the swings and the tube slide.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faith777 Amazing Play set for kids of all ages
We purchased this play set after much research. We are extremely happy with our decision. The entire process was seamless--from the delivery by the freight company to the quality of the play set and the assembling of it. My husband, brother, two teenage sons and our 10 year old son spent 2 1/2 days to complete the project. My advice is to lay out all pieces as instructed and follow instructions. It is durable enough to hold older children as well. My children love the tube slide, rock wall and trapeze bar.

My three year old granddaughter sat on the back steps and waited all day for it to be put together, when it was finished we couldn't get her off of it to go in at dark :) She loves it and it is sturdy enough for the old folks too :)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SandsFam Extremely pleased with playset
Playset instructions were very detailed and included extremely helpful pictures/diagrams for reference. Also all of the lumber was clearly labeled with dimensions and abbreviated name. Playset took approximately 14 hours for assembly for husband and wife team plus two year old daughter helper. Would recommend highly.

Received this about a month or two ago and was able to enlist help of a carpenter and hubby and they did it in two days...we are getting ready to mulch the area around it, but my 2 year old daughter cant resist it and loves to play on it every sunny day! Great product! Well made!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stacia Great playset!
We've only had this playset for a few weeks but we love it so far! I researched playsets for weeks before finally deciding on the Mountaineer. I was torn between this one and the Frontier, I like the tire swing and the other ladder that comes with the Frontier, but I really like the 2 slides that comes with this one. We bought this for our 2 year old daughter (we also have a newborn that we hope will be using it within a few years). We wanted a playset that she could use now but wouldn't outgrow in 2 years. She loves this one! The covered slide is her favorite and she goes down it at least 10 times a day. The playset was delivered in less than a week. We didnt receive a phone call from the trucking company like the website said we would but fortunately our 17 year old son was home when it got delivered, he helped the truck driver unload it. We had a hard time getting started with the installation because the first few pages of directions were confusing. It did take close to a week to complete it (DH is an electrician so he's quite handy). He worked on assembly all day Sunday (close to 10 hours) and an hour or two after work during the week. The worst part of the installation was the covered slide, that had to be taken apart 3 times and then put back together to get it flush with the ground. There were also no directions for the covered slide. I was disappointed to learn that the weight limit on the slides is only 125 pounds, I would have liked heavier duty slides. The playset seems sturdy but I have heard it squeak a few times. We were missing a few small pieces, but since they were only for appearance (on the dormer and chimney) we didn't worry about it. Also we had quite a few extra pieces (probably 10 extra pieces of lumber). Eventually, we'll probably add another swing beam toward the back for a tire swing but overall we are quite happy with this playset.

We purchased a previous set that was not a mountaineer and it was of poor quality and hardware. If you are looking to purchase a playset, please stop and read reviews on the playset first. If I had read reviews first I would have looked elsewhere and maybe found Mountaineer and saved me money. This playset is a high quality product and hardware. It is worth the extra money to purchase this type of quality. I had a professional carpenter install this for me and he gave this product high marks for quality.
