Trampoline Stairs with Slide

Our son just turned 6 and for his birthday we decided it was time to get the kids a trampoline to burn some energy off. While they loved it, they were constantly having problems getting in and out, which means that everyone just piles in and stays in. To fix that we decided to build a set of steps with a platform. That way it was easy to get in and out so it would be easier to obey the rules of one jumper at a time. But we didn’t stop there! In order to entertain the ones waiting to jump we decided to add a slide and a rock climbing wall!

So, at a final price of around $300, this ended up costing about as much as the trampoline itself but is way safer, easier and basically a play structure in itself. Nevertheless it was totally worth it and the kids love it.

    What a fantastic idea!!

  • Great idea, but it’s a hazard placing a hard surface next to a trampoline. Especially the exposed corner at the bench next to the netting.

    • Mike McMorrow

      I was thinking the same thing about the exposed corner. I’m getting ready to build one of these (I’ll probably make it a little smaller), and I think cutting that bench back a couple inches and covering it with a thick pad will help significantly.

      • Mike McMorrow

        Another thought I have is to just chop 8 inches off the height, which will put even the height of the bench below the level of the trampoline. My kids are all able to make the step, and I can put a step up by the entrance to accommodate anyone who can’t make the 8-inch step up onto the trampoline.

    My husband just got the deck built and now we are curious about the stair stringer! Did you built it?? We’re not seeing it in the plans 😬

    • Joey Sanchez

      i’ve seen the stair stringers for sale already premade at lowes for about 10$ each

    I have never heard of “5/4 x 6 x 12” as a size for wood? Is this the new math everyone is talking about?
