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.
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.
In addition to open jumping times, Sky Zone offers some neat extras. Here’s a layout of the schedule:
