This is a good, bouncy trampoline for adults and kids. I can bounce myself (26 year old adult gymnast, 150lbs) about 6 feet high working semi-hard, could probably get a little higher working harder. 8x14 is not the actual size of the trampoline. Here are the exact dimensions:
Frame (Entire trampoline): 7' 11" or 95 inches by 13' 11" or 167 inches
Bed (Jumping area): 6' 5" or 77 inches by 12' 3.5" or 147.5 inches
I put it together in 30 minutes (having set up a similar trampoline before) with two people. The directions are a little hazy, but it's easier to understand once you read through it twice. Basically, you build the trampoline upside-down, one longways side and the other longways side. Look at the picture of the trampoline online and it's easy enough to assemble without even having to read the directions because there aren't that many bars and they all have a very distinct shape so looking at a picture reference you can put it together in your head. Once you've built each longways side, then you flip it over, have one person hold up one side, then put the other side into it. Slide in the bolts and nuts but don't tighten them yet (I'll explain later). Then you put the bed on, corner springs first, then the side springs going every 5th spring, then every 4th, then every 3rd etc etc. After all springs are in place, THEN tighten all nuts and bolts. The reason is because now the trampoline frame is all pulled taught together by the springs so now you tighten the bolts to secure it in that position.
I didn't put together the enclosure because the tricks I'm doing on it go higher than the enclosure and I don't want to risk hitting it in any way. So unfortunately I don't have a review on that.
Bouncing 24/7 here! Terrific purchase
We were surprised at the ease of setting up this trampoline. We previously had a round trampoline, which was much more difficult to assemble. The enclosure comes already attached, which saves a lot of time and monotony. Sturdy build. Everyone is happy! (We paid $490 vs. $650-700 on Amazon)
Easy to set up. We had two 10 year olds and two adults and it took about 2 hours in the heat of the day. Kids are having a ball and it is working great. The net is a little bit chintzy and failing at the top connectors. Still holding though after a month. All and all a great purchase for our family.
very unhappy with this product, spring pad ripped in 6 different places the first time we used it!! My granddaughter only weighs 90lbs..so what does that tell you??
My 3 children and I were excited to put this trampoline together only to find that it had 4 right legs instead of 2 right legs and 2 left legs to make it rectangle. We also were missing the 80 springs. When I called the manufacturer I got the "runaround" and just took the whole thing back to Walmart.
I bought this for my 10 year old for Xmas; it was supposed to be his big surprise. I ordered it online because it was on sale for about $200 off the reg price and it was rectangular (can't find those in the store in my area). It came a week or so before Xmas in two boxes. Two days before Xmas, we go to put it together and find no instructions in nether of the boxes. My brother in law had done it before so he knew what to do. So as they lay the pieces out, they find that there are no screws or anything to put the pieces together! I was so hot with anger!
So, we call the company and tell them the problem. They say they will not send the stuff unless we show them proof we bought the trampoline. So I had to email them proof then they sent it by two day mail. We wasted a day on nothing but hassle. We got what we needed in two days (Xmas eve) but the damage was done. Cause of rain he didn't get it till two days after Xmas but he enjoyed it.
If you order this, just get it early enough in case you has the same problem we did.
Assembly took about 7 hours. There were parts missing.And some of the pipes had to be bent into shape. I emailed skywalker they took a few days to get back to me. I was missing 4 screws- they made me send them my receipt, model numbers etc.. the girl I spoke to was very rude. I had to give everything but my ss# and birth certificate for 4 lousy screws!
When fed ex delivered the boxes,which weighed at least 120 lbs each- they dumped them by my curb and didn't bother to ring the bell. good thing we were home to get them in the house before they were stolen! Never again will I order something like this from Walmart and also thanks to poor customer service I would never order from skywalker either. Not worth the $ or aggravation.
It's not as big as it look. Had it 2 days and the cheap net already rip. Wish I had bought a round one!
the trampoline was delivered in two part and I am still missing the net
2 weeks after ordering, still no trampoline. Was shipped with 2 of the wrong legs. After contacting manufacturing company, they said they would ship out the missing parts. That was over a week ago and still no replies on email on a shipping date. After spending $500+ very dissapointed in this experience.
Our new trampoline was very bent up when it arrived at my house and is still not able to be safe enough for the kids to jump. Please advise... Can I pick up a store credit or money back on my credit card?
Waste of time and money, I returned it!!!!
Sturdy and large enough for all 4 of our kids (ages 5-13). Extremely pleased!
All 281 lbs worth. Skywalker engineered a solid trampoline using good materials. It does take some persistence to assemble the steel frame and install 82 springs...but all the parts were there, the instructions were effective, and frustration was minimal.
As of this afternoon, its built, in place and solid as a rock. When ordering I worried that it would be a toy rather than an apparatus. I'm happy to report that its going to last.
Our young teen kids love it and I think they'll use it a lot. As trampolines go, this one is clearly designed to be safe and fun.
Great trampoline... we really love it. All those nuts and bolts were a little tricky, but not too bad, just pay close attention to the drawings provided. Also, would recommend home delivery because it comes in three big, heavy boxes.
My gymnast daughter loves this. Spends every available minute on it and it's loved by her friends.
Only had the trampoline a couple weeks but so far so good. Assembly was easy but does take some time. Only probelm was with the shipping, Fed ex delivered the 3 boxes on different days??? Not sure why. But the rectangle shape fits our yard nicely and the kids are loving it. Quality seems fair, i hope it lasts a long time.
The assembly instructions was quite easy to follow, every part went together with no problem, assembly time was about 4 hours, and that's with one person doing about 80% the other 20% was two people. Everything was picture perfect. Would definately recommend this Trampoline, we previously owned two round Trapolines, after our last round Trampoline was warn-out we decided to try the Skywalker 8' x14' Rectangular Trampoline with the Safety Combo package.
