SturdyWhile the tent claims to be 5 minute setup its more like 15-20 the first time, not knowing where the poles and ropes hook and such. But after all that it seems like it would be a breeze to set up now that I know where things go!
I really like that the main poles are pre-attatched to the tent so its easy to keep track of and easy to disassemble. The "Dark Room Technology" is excellent so you don't get woken up by dawns early light! And it even comes with a little tent fabricated "mat" for the front of the tent so you dont bring dirt and such inside the tent.
Overall the quality of this tent is outstanding, I really like the design concept and how they are making it easier for regular people like me to setup!!

Easy set up tentThis tent has been much needed for my family. We typically go camping during the spring, summer, and fall but couldn’t wait to set this tent up in the yard this weekend. My son loves it and played in it all day. The tent was quick and easy to set up and took less than 5 minutes for me. I enjoyed how the tent was built to block out the light which will come in handy during our camping trips. There was plenty of room for my family of 3 and our queen size air bed. The material seems to be heavy duty and good quality. My son ran in and out and tracked dirt in but was easy to wipe and sweep out.

Extremely easy setup!I recently used this 8-person dark room skydome camping tent by Coleman for a camping trip I went on with my son and a group of his friends. This was the quickest and easiest tent I have ever set up. It fit 2 queen sized inflatable matresses comfortably and the dark exterior helped to block out the blinding sun during the day. Where we camped, there were plenty of insects and at night the tent did a great job of keeping them out. It was also rather windy at night and the tent held up perfectly. The next day, it was a simple task to take down the tent and put it neatly back in the accompanying storage bag. This tent is high-quality, durable and a premium product and I would highly recommend it.

Excellent Tent. Easy Setup!This tent was so easy to set up that my 2 kids (13 yrs old) set it up in about 10 minutes on their own. It's a really cool tent.
Pro #1 - Easy setup
Pro #2 - the Dark Room is truly very dark. Once you get in and shut the door, it's very dark in the tent.
Pro #3 - When the dark room cover is down, the dome is wide open and breezy. It's perfect.
I can't wait to use it with the family. It's a great size. My family of 6 would do well in it. We also have a 12-person tent for when we are going to be out longer, but I love this one for the darkness. If you like to sleep in a bit, this is perfect.

Huge tentThe coleman 8 person dark room, skydome tent is absolutely massive. I didnt realize how big until I set it up in my living room to see what exactly i was dealing with. Definitely a lot of head room, I'm 5'1" and could walk freely in it with no issue. Even my 13 year old who is 5'7" had no issue either. Can definitely fit 2 queen sized air mattresses with no problem. It truly is dark once everything is put together and I like that coleman changed the top from lime green to a darker blue so it doesnt attract as many bugs. What I dont care for is that its definitely not a 5 minute set up, even with someone helping it took about 10. It is a straightforward set up but the tent is so massive it does take time and you definitely need a helper. Also, putting it back in the bag is a little bit of a pain however the bag does have a strip you can take off to make the bag bigger and make the tent easier to put away.

Great size!My family and I really enjoy this tent. We have a family of four, myself, my wife, and our two children. There’s more than enough space for us to be comfortable. The kids can also play a bit in it, and there’s plenty of space for that. The dark room feature is fantastic. It truly keeps our bright sunlight which is nice when we’re camping in specific places that are brighter than others when the sun rises. It’s so quick and easy to put up, which is great when you have two kids running around. The quality is amazing and I can tell that this will be going on many trips with us.

It really is dark!We have been a camping family of 5 for 10+ years. We were so excited to try out the Coleman 8 person Darkroom tent to see if it lived up to its name! And it did! Set up was easy because the poles are already attached to the bottom of the tent so there's no chance of losing them! The setup is quick and easy. I love that you can opt to leave the top cover off and have a huge screened dome if you'd like. On nights when the weather is cooperating it would be fantastic to sleep under the stars with a beautiful view from your air mattress! Once you put the cover on it is amazing how dark it is inside. I've truly never seen a tent so dark. This is a great feature for those that have a hard time sleeping with potentially a lot of light in your camp site, but it's also great in the daytime for napping kids. Another great feature in the 8 person tent is the size! The way the sides and roof of the tent are set up to allow for adults to stand up straight and not have to awkwardly bend to move around! It have an ample amount of space for our family of 5. You can easily fit 2 queen air mattresses and still have room to move around. Coleman came out with a fantastic product when they created the dark room tent series!

Nice looking and durableThis tent was super easy to put up and surprisingly big. It is one big room and enough to fit three queen blowup mattresses. My son that is 6ft tall stood easily. It has two poles that extend, one tent, one tent cover and one small tarp for the door. My son and I put it up easily. When the wind blew and even came off the ground at some points there were no tears. It is of course never as easy as you would hope to get it back in the bag, but not enough to matter. The tent does stay dark well after the sun rises. I would highly recommend this tent
