Rainbow Play Systems/ King Kong Clubhouse / product

Glastonbury, CT, United States

We bought a King Kong Clubhouse about 15 years ago. I can tell you we were sold on the supposed durability and maintenance free spiel that we both heard from the seller, and read from their brochures.

To make a long story short, we moved overseas for a few years so we had our play system dismantled and stored. When we came back we couldn't afford the Rainbow Play Systems' fees to come out and re-erect the system, so we stored it in the garage for a couple of years. Finally, we paid an exorbitant fee to have a subcontractor come out put the thing together. It was still beautiful!

Moving ahead a few more years, the metal to the swings became rusty, the yellow durable slides (straight and corkscrew) have faded, the panels to the clubhouse have come apart and collapsed, some of the red portions have faded to white, and the supposed durable canopy had disintegrated.

Even though this system was bought 15 yrs ago, it was in perfect storage out of the elements for at least 5 of those years. To say the least, this is a very disappointing product!! There are metals which they could have used which doesn't rust, and there are plastics that they could have used that don't fade, yet they chose not to utilize these products for this system.

In conclusion, I feel like we wasted a lot of money here, and it will take more to dismantle it. My recommendation is DONT BUY this product! It is way over priced for the materials that they use.
