Thunder Ridge Swing Set
All Cedar Construction
The Thunder Ridge is made from 100% cedar. With small, tight knot structure, your lumber will be less likely to develop small cracks emanating from knots. In laboratory testing, our durable cedar wood proved to be rot resistant and highly resistant to natural decay. All lumber is pre-stained for a smooth and clear appearance, as well as cut and stamped with the part number to help speed up the building process. Some pilot-hole drilling may be required. Our patented Safe-T-Fuse hardware makes assembly easy and secure. Its laminated swing beam is built strong, with steel clam-shell brackets to ensure that swinging is always safe.
- Large upper fort
- Side porch with pergola top
- Lower fort with front door
- Snack window and built-in bench
- Two belt-swings and one ship-themed glider
- 10 ft. Speedy slide
- Monkey bars
Our exclusive Safe-T-Fuse locking nuts resist loosening over time and their rounded surfaces won’t catch on clothing or cause scrapes.
Heavy Duty Brackets
High strength steel brackets join all our major components together. The powder coating applied to all metal parts provides maximum protection from the elements.
All of our swing sets and pergolas are made from 100% cedar wood. With a chemical-free stain safe for children and animals, this high quality material naturally resists mold and decay. All plastic components are also UV resistant.
All Backyard Discovery sets meet or exceed the toughest safety standards to ensure your family and friends are safe when using any of our products.
The Thunder Ridge cedar wood swing set lives up to its name! It's a big set with tons of fun things to do. Start with an upper fort that has a wood roof and for extra play space, a side porch with sunny pergola top. The lower fort has a front wall with large chat window and real door. The side wall has a snack window and built-in bench just outside. Out back there are monkey bars that make getting to the upper fort a hand-over-hand challenge plus a step ladder. For hours of swinging fun there are two belt swings and a two-person ship's wheel glider. And our 10' speedy slide safely zips the kids back down to the yard
Top Customer Reviews
The directions are so easy one of the guys was using the Spanish version and didn't realize it! We staked it and set it in the ground a bit (mostly to level the bumpy yard) and it doesn't BUDGE with my husband swinging on the swing.
You will have to pre drill a little bit and sometimes the stamps were a little hard to read, but all in all, EXCELLENT building experience & cannot wait to have our kids all over this thing!!
+ kids (8yr and 4yr boys) love the playset and play on it daily. provides hours of entertainment
+ not too large
+ structurally sound. adults can use monkey bars and climb into the upperlevel.
+ customer service is phenomenal. only one part was broken. they replaced rapidly for no charge.
- no floor provided for lower level. we are contemplating installing a floor.
- only two of four sides have walls on the bottom level.
Make sure to read the directions carefully as any "errors" we thought we found in the instructions always ended up being someone picking the wrong part for an earlier step.
I recommend getting all of bags of parts out and separate the bags into piles of screws, bolts, washers, etc and then sort each pile by the size. There are a lot of different parts that are very similar but if you make sure to pick the exact ones the instructions say, it all works.
The only section that we had real trouble with was the vertical slats for the upper deck that didn't have a good method for consistent spacing as there wasn't pre-drilled holes to follow and the exact measurments were hard to use while building and holding parts. The same applied to the lower vertical slats that make up the walls of the playhouse. When assembling the door area, line up the slats to where the curve of the door cutout is and let the rest of the spacing happen as it may.
Note: The instructions say that the stain is for color only and needs to be waterproofed 1-2 times per year to keep the warranty which is disappointing as we gave this one priority over others that were not stained, assuming that it would be waterproof as well.
It is sturdy enough for young children, but does have a bit of wiggle in it. I may go and tighten everything down again.
2. A few of my bolts have stripped from tightening and I'll need to replace some.
3. It's been set up for a month, and there's already mildew on a lot of the wood. You can apply a sealant within the first 6 months, so I was going to wait until cooler weather, but after seeing all the mildew I'm rethinking that.
Overall it's a great set for the price and I'm very happy with the purchase. I added some battery operated lights to the bottom clubhouse, a welcome sign on the door, flower pots, toy grill, and a chalkboard "menu" for the snack window to make it even more fun for the kids.
