types of playground slides
Wonder Wave

One of our tried-and-true slides, the Wonder Wave is great for kids of all ages, including younger children as well. Available for a 5-foot playset tower deck, this straight slide provides hours of easy fun! While it might be simple, it is a slide for playsets that can’t be beat.

Tunnel Express

One of the most versatile of the different types of playground slides we build, this straight and enclosed slide can complete 3-foot, 5-foot, 7-foot, and 9-foot playset tower decks. The Tunnel Express slide now comes with a clear panel so kids can see the sky rush past as they slide.

ripple rush playground slide
Ripple Rush & Extreme Ripple Rush

The Ripple Rush line of slides offers the fastest and most extreme ride, thanks to its high angle. The extreme Ripple Rush has the same high grade but is four feet longer. These slides are meant for 5-foot and 7-foot playset towers.

twisty turbo tube playground slide
Twisty Turbo Tube

Rated by real kids to be their favorite of our slides for playsets, the Twisty Turbo Tube provides big-time thrills for a lot of different sets. Available for 5-, 7-, and 9-foot towers, this fully enclosed slide makes for a speedy and twisty experience that kids love!

sidewinder slide for playset
Sidewinder Slide

A long and straight slide — available in every height — that comes out from the main tower at a right angle. Not only does that make for a slightly different experience, but it also makes it possible to cluster multiple slides side-by-side on the same set — perfect for races and other games! Like a few of our other covered slides for playsets, clear panels can be used here, too.

super spiral slide for playset
Super Spiral Slide

A new choice among these different types of playground slides, the Super Spiral slide is an open slide shaped in a tight corkscrew. Similar to the Twisty Turbo slide, it delivers a heart-pumping experience, but the open top may be more comfortable for some kids.

We have just as much variety in our different types of swings!

The best swingset company, in my opinion! We are an independent contractor that works for a lot of companies. Adventure world swingsets are built very well. They will last more than one generation.

We have been trying to purchase one of these play sets for months and none of the dealers in our area will call us back about purchasing one. I wish the purchasing process was easier than "find a vendor in your local area". No one here wants to build them! The Happy Hideout looks like an amazing product for my toddler to grow into. I'm sad no one will build them or call us back. Edit: The company contacted me personally and found a vendor in my area!
