Questions & Answers

What is the height of the main deck from the ground? Also, what is the appropriate age range? Thanks!

Asked by: director2014
recommended ages are 3-11

In some of the customer reviews they say this playset comes with an optional ladder is this still true?

I did not see it listed under the product overview.
Asked by: Angie
Yes...ours had the wood parts to build the ladder...which was aggravating because we were missing a couple hardware pieces for the main construction...so we had extra, unnecessary wood and missing, necessary hardware.
Answered by: threegirls
Date published: 2018-03-01

Can the tire swing area be moved?

Can the tire swing beam be attached to the a-frame of the regular swings to eliminate the needed space behind the playset? This would make the playset longer but not as wide. The playset would then have the regular swings and the tire swing together.
Asked by: RoadSapwn
Did you ever try moving the tire swing? Interested as well. Thanks!

Can this be assembled with the swings on the right and the playhouse/tire swing on the left?

We need to reverse the layout of this playset. Can it be assembled that way? Thanks!

Gorilla Playsets Frontier Treehouse Wooden Swing Set with Timber ShieldPosts, Tire Swing, and Climbing Ramp is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The hardware on this product far exceeded my expectations. All parts of the set were more than able to support my weight. My kids completely love it and play on it constantly. I read the other reviews and had set aside 3 days for assembly, although it only took me 14 hours over 2 days by myself. If I had some help it would have taken much less than 10. I recommend having help with a second drill to help predrill holes and install the deck, deck slats, and the roof as these were the most time consuming. Second, I used my drill instead of a ratchet to install all of the nuts and lag bolts as this greatly reduced time. I also recommend completely reading the instructions prior to starting the assembly as this will reduce some of the confusion while putting it together. My final piece of advise is for the women, let your man work and don't bother him, I wasted a lot of time going into the house to assist in what my wife was doing.

It only got tricky with the swing booms but she’s freakishly strong so it worked out. Instructions we excellent but does require attention to detail. No missing pieces or hardware. Everything arrived on a big pallet in 12-15 boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Playset! The assembly does take some time and patience. With 4 dads working at any given time, it took 2 full days + 1 additional for the swing beams. For this quality of playground, it was definitely worth the extra time. The set is VERY sturdy, safe, and absolutely kid-friendly. I can safely walk up and down the ladders and rock wall to assist my children. Make sure you have level ground to work on. Do not overtighten the lag screws. My only complaint is the dormer/roof/chimney construction. The dormers and chimney did not have instructions and the dormers have warped after only 2 months and need to be repaired. It will be a simple fix with nails and wood glue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great swingset My son loves this playset. We put it together ourselves, which took some time, but it gave a great project for the family to work on together. The instruction book looks intimidating since it is so large, but it just because they really detail every step you need to take to put this together on your own. If you are handy and have tools, it is worth the time to save a few hundred dollars and do it yourself. It is very sturdy and heavy. The box includes extra wood in case you decide to switch out the walk up plank for a ladder climb instead. My son loves the plank. Other set had the ladder only and we were concerned about having a toddler climb up and down a ladder and falling. This set gives both options, which is really nice. I would recommend this one to anyone. The value is wonderful and so is the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grandkids love it Received the playset in excellent condition. All the pieces were there (along with a few extra boards and hardware!). Must say the instructions to put this thing together was spot on. If you have a screw motor, you can do this. The instructions are that detailed! Took us around 20 hours to complete it, but part of that time was working to get the fort structure level in the yard. After that, no problems. Only complaints are the telescope is made of cheap plastic and probably not last very long with my grandkids, and it would be nice if each different size of hardware (screws, washers, hexbolts, etc) was in separate bags and labeled. Some are in separate bags (not labeled), but then you have some bags that have hex-bolts, 2 in, 2 1/2 in, etc in bag together. At least the instructions give you life size pictures you can compare and measure to. But that is my ONLY complaint! The grandkids LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, sturdy playset Installed two days ago and my 3 year old daughter loves it. The good: very sturdy, much larger than I expected, and appears to be very durable. Also, was not missing any parts. The bad: was a beast to put together. You will need help. Parts are spread out among 12 or so different boxes. So, if possible, organize before you start. Suggestion to manufacturer - group hardware by installation steps rather than packaging the parts randomly; would make installation much smoother. Was well worth it, though, when I saw my daughter's face once she started playing on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality swingset! We did a lot of research on wooden swingsets before purchasing this set, and I am very pleased with our choice! It did take my husband an entire weekend to put it together (20 hours, did need brief help from a friend with getting the heavy beams in place), although the instructions were very clear and well organized, pieces well-marked. The set looks great, my kids are really enjoying it, and it seems very sturdy and safe. No buyer's remorse - looks as good as the photos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Play set! We have 3 kids 8, 2, 1 and they all love it! The tire swing is alot of fun for my 8 yr old and his friends and the baby swing is a must for smaller children. I t took about 3 weekends to put it all together. We had recently purchased a full set of tools (power drill, wratchits ect.) and had some help from family and friends which with out either one would have been impossible. You want to get some kind of sealant for the wood to protect against the elements too. Deffinitly a great buy this thing will last a long time. Very happy with it!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would def. deal with this company again! Product was well packed, instructions were very well written, and all parts were labeled well. The wood was all very nice, however on the thinner pieces it is a good idea to pre-drill to avoid spliting. It took me about 11 hours to build and I only needed an extra set of hands when I was setting the two main swing beams. My 2 year old daughter loves climbing the rockwall and sliding down the slide. I would def. purchase other products from this company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTE HOME RUN!!!!! This playground is awesome. The instructions are very complete and easy to follow. The parts and pieces are labeled and seperated for easy finding. The pre-drilling of the many many pieces did get a bit monotonous, but it's better than splitting the wood. It took my wife and I about 14 total hours to build the entire system. AND the directions are so good that there were no conflicts. Every component is very sturdy and well engineered. If you love your kids, you'll buy this playground.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has it all for kids to have so much fun We are happy we got this play set, my wife and I love it and our children as well, now we can't get them to go inside the house lol, and when building it aslong as you follow every step by step, page by page it's easy to install, it takes about two full day to install it with the help of another person, but it is all worth it :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gorilla frontier playset Since none of our family members were constructionally gifted, we asked 2 church friends who are in the construction business to help put up the set. They each brought two helpers and with our son that made 7. They completed the project in less than 6 hours. They found it challenging but were impressed with the materials and all were impressed with the finished product. As the last nails were pounded in 7 kids began swinging, climbing and sliding. It's a great set and we are very pleased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Unnecessary packaging confusion this playground has a lot of exciting activities. However, the assembly part was unnecessarily difficult. Most of the wood did not have pre-drilled holes and NOTHING was pre-assembled. Additionally, all the wood was mixed up. For example, rock climbing wall parts were mixed in the ladder parts, etc. Sorting out the materials and pre-drilling holes were half the battle. Gorilla could have taken care of those things for the $2000 price tag, don't you think?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality! My son loves it! We are very happy with the quality of the playset. Setup was straightforward, though some of the pieces were missing labels. You definitely need to follow the instructions and plan on 12 to 16 hours of setup. Shipping was a bit of an issue, as the set came wrapped up on a 10 foot pallet and the truck that showed up had only a 5 foot lift. I had to help unload the boxes one by one. The set had all the pieces, but no extra, so be careful. It does ship with a wooden ladder, so you have the option of swapping out the ramp or the rock wall. My son is 2 1/2 and absolutely loves the set, especially the slide. He can do the rock wall by himself, though we won't let him just yet. I would definitely recommend the frontier playset.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality, but assembly directions need work The play set came in multiple boxes and before you start assembly, you will need to open every box and sort all of the boards. I laid mine out in my driveway, but a lawn or other large area will suffice. There is no way you can begin without taking this step. And here is one of the reasons I gave 4 stars: Although the boxes are numbered, the assembly pages DO NOT refer to any board box nor hardware (screws, nuts, bolts) box number. What this ultimately means is I spent 10-15 minutes (for each step) finding boards and related hardware, constantly comparing to the instructions for proper type and size, and maybe 5 minutes on the assembly. Second reason: the hardware is sorted into boxes (numbered) and small ziplock bags, but there seems to be no rhyme or reason for the organization. I was constantly robbing one box/bag to assemble a step of the structure. For example: early in the steps you have to assemble the four main structure posts and the directions call for 30 T-Nuts and I had to open 4 different bags and 3 different boxes to get that many T-Nuts. Third reason: The instructions state "there may be slight differences in board sizing due to the milling process". This, in my case was an under statement. I found multiple instances where I have to cut and tweak the assembly to make things fit properly or "close enough". On a few occasions I had to actually saw boards to make things fit properly (more than 1" difference). An example is the gang plank. The directions state to make the floor boards flush with the bottom of of the ramp. If you do this expect to cut the floor boards because when you attach them to the structure, the brackets won't fit properly against the support, because there is an overhang of wood you need to trim off. Fourth: Getting started took an awful long time. Not only to sort all the materials and get them organized, but figuring out what end is what. The instructions describe left and front vs left and right, or front and back. This gets confusing because if you don't assemble items in the proper order or put T-Nuts in the proper holes, you later figure out you have to move things around or you put something in the wrong place. Fifth: Expect to have a hammer drill, various drill bits, regular and blade, as well as deep socket set. There is no way I would suggest doing any of these tasks by hand (manual socket set will add days to the assembly time). I would also suggest a powered drill vs battery. Driving lag bolts chews thru battery drills in minutes. Sixth: Although many holes are pre-drilled, many are not and the directions even state "there is no need to pre-drill holes, the screws and bolts are self tapping". Yes this is technically true, however, if you've ever worked with wood before, you will know you want to drill pilot holes to prevent cracking and many of the locations are close to the edges of the boards. I think all of these issues can be solved with a little rewording in the manual and a few tweaks: - Organize the hardware with the boards into a single box for any given step in the manual: time savings 1 hour at start-up and 5 hours over length of project hunting for various parts - I understand there are differences in the milling process, but someone needs to take a second look at the design, output from the mill, and actually assemble the structure. Way too many tweaks. Despite all of these concerns, I still believe the end product is a solid, well made structure I have no problem letting my grandkids play on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This playset is well made. Purchased this playset for our 3 grandchildrren for Christmas 2012. Since it was a gift in another state we found a company to professionally install it rather than have our son spend 20 hours on installation. It is very well made and will provide years of fun. Every part was included in the delivery as promised and it was wrapped very carefully for shipment and delivered in perfect shape. It also arrived very quickly. Home Depot did have good prices when compared with all the other stores and websites we checked out prior to the purchase. The product is awesome and you will not be disappointed with this playset!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I was surprised how large the playset was once assembled. It definitely allows for many years for my 5 and 3 year old to grow into and has been a great addition to our backyard. We did end up hiring someone to assemble the product (gorilla offers recommendations on their website) once we saw the amount of boxes, read the instructions, and honestly assessed how long it would take. The assembly crew consisted of 3 men who had assembled gorilla products before and it still took them 5.5 hours. Overall, the set is very sturdy and my kids love it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The same product from Walmart was $300 cheaper I purchased from Home Depot because I used my HD Credit card an received 24months interest free. Walmart and Lowes would note offer the same interest free even with there cards (if i had them). How ever HD shipping and web site lacks a lot of self help. And does not keep to their shipping agreements..../ on the good side I receive great value from buying at Home Depot.... Love what they sell...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! We are really happy with this play structure. Just finished it about a week ago and my two year old daughter can't get enough of it. The directions are extremely easy to follow, if you do just that. My husband is a carpenter and insisted there were missing pieces in the beginning and that we were sent some of the wrong pieces. However, he just needed to follow the steps and not try and engineer this on his own. It all worked out perfectly. No left over pieces, thank God! This structure is great quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this swing set We love this swing set. It is something that will grow with our child. We paid for installation and it only took 4 hours max for them to do. I was amazed! I just wish that Gorilla also gave information as to how much rubber mulch goes with each set in case someone wants to order that too - then it's much easier for the consumer. Also, I wish they sold rubber boarders to go with the mulch - again giving suggestions as to how many are needed for each set with their guidelines as far as safety.

Overall my kids love the swing set and it was a good investment BUT PLEASE KNOW there is a TON of work that goes into this purchase! Before you start this project, I highly suggest skimming through all of the directions, ensuring that you received all of the pieces/metal hardware, and sealing the large base pieces prior to assembly. I will give my detailed experience below... To start, we ordered this playset from Home Depot, as a Christmas present to our kids, and it was delivered on a freight truck without any notice. They decided to drop off 1,000 pounds worth of boxes at the end of our driveway, in the middle of a snow storm, at dark. Home Depot claims that they aren't required to give you any notice. Just a heads up on that one! Please disregard this paragraph if you have a perfectly flat piece of land. Before we could even start assembling in the Spring, we ended up having to pay $1,000 to have our ground properly leveled and stones brought in for adequate drainage. We didn't think that our land was that uneven until we had someone use a laser level to assess it. This was obviously our own fault, but something to keep in mind. Next, we decided to lay out the pieces in our yard and make sure everything was there. There are sooooooooo many pieces. We had a few damaged pieces and tons of missing hardware, so we had to call Gorilla and the hardware company, who sent us replacement pieces. (Overall, waiting on the missing pieces set us back a week or two.) While we had all of the pieces laid out, we decided to group them into sections for quicker assembly later on. This saved us a ton of time and headache during assembly. We also did this with the hardware-- we separated all of the different pieces into baggies and labeled them. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of pieces mixed in various bags and some look very similar. There is no rhyme or reason to how ANY of it was packaged together (wood or hardware), so beware of that. Also before assembling, we decided to apply a water sealant to the large pieces that would be laid on the ground. The directions tell you to apply a water sealant to the finished product, however, you can't apply a sealant to the ground contact pieces after you assemble it. My husband pretty much assembled this by himself within a few weekends. He needed help holding pieces here and there, but managed to do it mostly by himself. We feel that it went up as quickly and as smoothly as it did because of all the prep work we did. Overall, the quality of the set is very good and we would probably do it all over again, but I do wish that Gorilla organized the hardware and wood better... The directions could also be a little clearer in some spots.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Except for a slight delay in processing my order overall this was a pleasant buying experience I ordered this play set from Home Depot so that if there were any problems with it I would have someone local to follow up with. The ordering process and delivery were pretty straight forward. There was a slight delay in processing while waiting for Home Depot to verify credit card information. I actually had to contact them to find out what was taking so long to process my order. Other than that I was very pleased with the experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My boys loved it! For Christmas we got our boys (1 & 3 years old) this play set. From the moment they saw it, they jumped on it and haven't got off of it since! We didn't put the picnic table up because it took away from the beautiful sandbox and it was only half a picnic table. We are planning to just purchase a little tikes table for them. It took my husband and father-in-law a day and a half to put this together and they are perfectionists!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The toys on this product are great, but quality a little less than perfect. My daughter thouroughly enjoys this playset. Directions very easy to follow. Although, on some pieces directions didnt call for pre-drilling holes and it was absolutely necessary to pre=drill, otherwise you split the wood. (ex: Sunburst, stability wood wedges underneath floor). I have already recommended this to a friend. As long as my daughter loves it I do. And she does. Recommend this to anyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement ladder Our ladder from a different manufacturer finally rotted out and broke apart. I ordered this as a replacement and it fit perfectly, and it was so easy to install my 12 year old did the work for me.
