Sky High Sports

If your kids are bouncing off the walls at home this summer bring them to Sky High Sports where that behavior is encouraged! If you're looking for a new kind of jumping adventure, guaranteed to elicit smiles and really great naps - look no further. Instead of blown up castles and slides, Sky High Sports offers jumping entertainment on trampolines, pits of foam to hop or swing into, dodge ball, exercise classes and an all around hopping good time. You'll see kids (and some adults) with advanced jumping skills showing off their flips and feats of air-borne prowess, it's really something to see. The next time we go back I'm going to try the rope swing into the pit of foam - the idea brings out the inner kid in me. 

Upon arrival you'll notice the place is huge - there are three different jump areas, one for little kids, and then two others for bigger kids and adults. We visited on a Wednesday afternoon around 1:30 and reserved our jump time online (which is recommended), and mostly had the kids area to ourselves. If you have older kids there is an area where parents can kick back in comfy recliners to read, watch TV and monitor kids on the cams installed in the jump areas. They also offer a large range of food and beverages at their cafe. Sky High Sports specializes in birthday parties and corporate events for bouncing fanatics.

Kids and kids at heart can jump in sneakers or bare feet. We had three 4 year olds and a 2 year old who all really enjoyed the experience. My 1 year old was too small for it, and I'd only recommend this for kids who are very balanced walkers. All four kids bounced for two hours straight, and loved every second of it. There are employees to watch over safety concerns and guide the kids as they bounce.

The cost is $12/hour Fri-Sun, and $10/hour Mon-Thurs and $8/each additional hour. They also offer jump punch cards for a lower per hour fee. A waiver must be signed for anyone jumping. Reservations can be made online up to two days in advance, and are recommended because it can get busy. There is ample parking and is stroller friendly.
