Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sal1 Kids love it.
Kids really love it, so it is well worth the money. They play on it, around it, under it, dangle off of it-which is scary for a parent to watch especially when they stand on it. Just make sure to place it on level ground and push the bottom bars down and out all around so it is steady.
My husband and I put it together in about 30 min. at 9 pm with minimal light (but he is a builder while I read out the instructions). I reviewed the instructions first and wrote in green bar with sticker or green bar w/o, brown bar with or w/o sticker, short bolt, long bolt, regular nut and nut with coating, 15 black climbing grippers and washers instead of looking at something like ADE to ADC to ADE connect to EFB-1 to EFE-2 with aa add ae...comes with everything to put it together except a socket wrench.
Put together the bars and repeat then start adding bars to connect. JUST hand tighten the bolt/nut because you will need to remove the nut to add the next set of bars...tighten everything down at the end once you shape it and do a walk around to tighten everything up.
It moves faster with 2 adults, but if I had to do it by myself it would be about 3 hours using the side of the house/fence/kids for help while reviewing the steps.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happyinarizona Amazing product.
The perfect complement to our Lifetime swing set. Same color scheme and everything. Easy to put together (doable by yourself, but easier with a partner). Sturdy. Holds all 240 of me without issue. Thoughtful placement of grips make the climbing dome safe to explore. Neither of my kids are bit enough to get to the top on their own, but they've both found lots of ways to climb and hang. A great piece of equipment to grow with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by McBeav This thing is fun!!!
Recently did a 10X8 Lifetime shed and one of the playsets. Found the Geo Climber and figured if it would "round off" the play area outside. Every bit as well built as the shed and playset. Put this together in about an hour on my own and it is easy to move around. Kids love it and I have had a blast on it too!! Lifetime products has a Lifetime customer. Kayaks next on the list.

It definitely takes two people to build, and it took us all morning and an afternoon. I was disappointed at how easy it was to bend the metal bars at the crimped ends. Once we noticed that, we were very careful in positioning the thing during the build! I'm not 100% impressed with the quality, because of that and the fact that the whole thing warped a bit when my lawn crew moved it. I've since request they not mow in the back in order to make sure this equipment lasts long enough for my kids to grow out of it... which will hopefully be years!
The only other minor drawback is that the bars do indeed get to hot to touch. The person that wrote the description must not have tested it in the Texas summers! That's not too big a deal tho. The kids don't really like playing outside in the blazing heat anyway. I just thought this was worth mentioning since this was a "plus" that affected my buying decision.
Other than these two draw backs, it has performed marvelously well thus far (a month). Both my husband and I test climbed it, and my 3 kids have been all over the thing and back again. They love it!

Even a 59 year old woman could put this together! Took a little time but worth the wait!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindy I am so pleased
I thought I was getting some sort of cheap playground equipment because of the price, but when I put it together I was amazed on the quality and sturdiness of the product I have (6) children ages 2-12 playing on this at the same time. I would recommend this product to those even looking at it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mammaw FANTASTIC for 7 and 5 year-olds
Easy and quick to build. Tall enough for the kids to enjoy but short enough that mom doesn't have to worry about falling and broken bones.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Elizabeth Good outdoor toy to entertain many ages.
This structure is very stable. I have had many kids go on it at once. Best of all they were of varying ages (6-17). This structure looks like it will entertain them for years. Although I have had only for one season (summer), I expect they may have fun with it even in the winter. My 1 3/4 yr old hangs from the lowest level and my 6 year olds climb on top and hang from the inside top level.
Assembly took about 2.5 hours with a good amount of time trying to get the first level closed. A good plier to pinch the pieces together helped a great deal. You need 2 people so that one can hold the structure steady prior to closing first level. Once first level is closed, then it becomes easier. The build instruction wasn't clear about layering the bars, so I had to call the manufacture. They told me to just keep it consistent. Because of some difficulty with assembly I rated it one below the best.
