Do your Kids like to Jump? Read about Sky Zone & Enter our Giveaway!

photo (6)What kid, strike that, what per­son doesn’t like a tram­po­line? My family had the  best time stop­ping out to Sky Zone Indoor Tram­po­line Park in Spring­dale a few weeks ago. This place is just cool. Seriously cool. I really had no idea on what to expect (other than what I read on their web­site). We had so much fun!

Here’s the scoop:

First, plan ahead. This is a serious workout. Don’t bog yourself down with heavy clothes or even jeans for your kids. Put then in summer outdoor play clothes, because I guarantee you they are going to get hot and sweaty! (and hopefully, as an added bonus, tired!)

When you arrive, you need to com­plete a lia­bil­ity waiver form. You then pick how long you’d like to play:

30 min­utes = $8
60 min­utes = $12
90 min­utes = $16
120 min­utes = $20

After you choose this and pay, you then get spe­cial shoes to wear on the tram­po­lines (who knew?). You can’t have any­thing in your pock­ets when you jump — this includes cell phones, car keys, money, etc. Based on this, we decided to rent a small locker for $.50. Once you rent this, you do get a small key, which you can keep in your pocket while you jump. This is a one time use locker, so if you think you’ll be in and out of it, be sure to bring extra change.

Once you do this, you’re all set to go and have fun. All ses­sions begin on the 1/2 hour which is some­thing you may want to con­sider when plan­ning your visit. It will take you 10 min­utes or so to get forms filled out, paid, shoes changed, locker stuffed.…. just think ahead as you don’t want to waste any of your avail­able time.

In fact, Sky Zone highly rec­om­mends that you pur­chase your tick­ets before you head out online. They do have a max­i­mum num­ber of peo­ple who can be jump­ing at any given time, so be sure to keep this in mind.

When your time starts, the employ­ees blow a whis­tle to announce the time. You will receive a brief series of instruc­tions on how the tram­po­lines work as well as some basic ground rules. BTW, they do have a video of what not to do. It’s hilar­i­ous. Be sure to watch it.

photo (7)There’s five dif­fer­ent sections:

1. The foam pit — hands down my kids most favorite station/section. You jump on a tram­po­line into a huge pit of big foam pieces. Once they got the hang of it, they were doing flips into these.

2. Kids Dodge Ball — there’s a kids dodge ball sec­tion, and an;

3. Adult Dodge Ball — both work the same — a “ref­eree” keeps track of every­one, you pick your team and then throw and dodge away.

4. Jump Shots — this part has tram­po­lines and bas­ket­ball hoops. You know the drill.

5. Big Tram­po­line Arena — I’m sure this isn’t what this is called, but it works. This is a huge area of inter-connected tram­po­lines. One side is for adults while the other side is for kids. Sky Zone is big on safety. This is a good thing.

If you wear glasses, staff will rec­om­mend that you put on safety gog­gles for some of these areas.

    I follow FFC on FB and subscribe to their great e-newsletters. Skyzone is an awesome place to bring out the kid in me while working out and getting the heart rate going!! Plus ‘ya never see any unhappy people jumpin’ either (smiles).

    My son was telling me about Sky Zone when this was posted. His answer to the question is that it builds up his leg muscles!

    I love that it is an active thing that I can do with my family, no matter what fitness level I am at or what the kids are at. Everyone loves to jump…but not everyone likes to play softball or take hikes. All the kids are on the same level on a trampoline, lol. No one is “better” at it than the other.

    I already like FFC on FB and receive the newsletter to my email and follow on Pinterest. I also already like Skyzone on FB.
