Outdoor Swing Sets for Adults

Who said that swing sets are only for kids? I don’t know about you, but I enjoy swinging and don’t feel shy to have some fun in the garden or to just swing slowly while reading a book or talking by phone. Join me, don’t miss the fun just because you are no longer a child!

Specific Swing Sets For Adults

Usually the adult swing sets look more “serious” than the children ones. They are more stylish, not that colorful and often have more comfortable and bigger seats. Swinging is not the most important function of the swing sets for adults – their main purpose is to offer comfort and romantics.The swing sets that are designed especially for adults don’t have slides or other similar tools. However they can have an alcove or can be attached to one. Often they are supplied with some sporting tools like rings or tightropes.

The adult swing sets can also be a bit larger and the seats can be placed a bit higher from the ground so your legs are comfortable.

Outdoor Swing Sets For The Entire Family

JOH_3686 You need to seriously think before purchasing a swing set that is designed only for adults. If you have no kids and have no plans for kids maybe that’s a fine decision, but otherwise why buy two sets? Your kids will not be comfortable on the special adult set because of the size, because swinging is harder, and the design can be boring for them.

It’s much better to buy big swing sets that are appropriate for the entire family. Such tools will be easy and safe for your children and at the same time will let the adults swing and sit comfortable.

There are no special requirements – most swing set will be OK for adults if you are not too particular.

The most important thing you need to check when planning for such a swing is the maximum weight it supports. It should be enough to handle you so you don’t break the play set of your kids. In general swing sets that are intended for the entire family will also have more seats (up to 4) so you can swing together. Some of the best family swing sets I have seen have four seats – two bigger and two smaller in the middle – which allows parents and kids swinging together.

The most important thing when buying a swing set is to think well who is going to use it. Don’t just assume that you won’t – you may get surprised how many adults like to spend their afternoons swinging. I am sure you don’t want to steal these hours from your kids occupying all the seats in their most loved game place!
