Gorilla Playsets Great Skye II W/Vinyl Canopy Wooden Swing Set
There are 5 different models of the Great Skye II, the difference between each being the type of roof over the main deck. The roof styles are vinyl canopy, sunbrella canopy, standard wood woof, standard wood roof with windows (treehouse) and malibu wood roof. To see pros and cons of each type of roof, please check out our blog post on it here:

Now let's check out the features of the Great Skye II.
Coming off the front of the main deck we have the 5 foot alpine wave slide and the half sized rock wall with climbing rope. The main deck is fairly large at 4' x 6', and comes with a steering wheel, tic tac toe board and a telescope.
Coming off the side of the main deck is a safety ladder with safety handles. Off the side of that as you can see is a well constructed rope ladder. Underneath the main deck we have an area for a sandbox along with a half picnic table.
The coolest feature of the Great Skye II is the second, higher deck attached to the back of the main deck. There is a ladder from the main deck to the higher deck your children can climb up. From here, they have the large, Radical Ride tube slide going down from 7 feet high. Kids go crazy for this radical slide! The difference between the Great Skye I and Great Skye II, however, is the added Commercial Grade Super Scoop slide coming off the side of the 2nd deck.
This set has 3 slides. It is bound to give your children hours of healthy climbing and sliding!
You can also see a massive 4" x 6" wooden swing beam with iron swing hangers that are bolted completely through the 6 inch swing beams with locking carriage bolts. These make Gorilla swing beams extremely sturdy and virtually unbreakable.
This set comes standard with2 belt swings and a trapeze bar swing. The Great Skye II comes in Cedar, it has a 5 foot main deck, a 2nd 7 foot deck with a square base. For more on those features, please read our comprehensive blog post here:
