Trampoline Parks in the Upstate

Posted on | No Comments

Are you looking for a fun activity for the whole family in or near Spartanburg? Check out Big Air Trampoline Park in Spartanburg or one of the three Greenville trampoline parks! Below you will learn all about the various trampoline parks in the upstate with prices and other information parents need to know.

Spartanburg got a whole lot cooler with the opening of Big Air, a brand-new trampoline park where parents can be nearly guaranteed to leave with tired kids ready for naps or bedtime.

Big Air Spartanburg is a sponsor of Kidding Around.

I really love trampoline parks because it’s one place where it’s totally cool to jump around with your kids, make an embarrassment out of yourself trying to do flips, and getting in a workout all at the same time. After my daughter went the first time, she asked to go back for weeks. The pure joy of flying around weightless for a few seconds on a trampoline or testing skills on a rock wall or ninja course or jumping into a foam pit is endless entertainment for any kid.

Tips for visiting a trampoline park

Before reviewing all three energy-sapping trampoline parks, here are a few tips to keep in mind to make the most out of your jumping experiences:

1 – Don’t eat too close to going jumping because full stomachs and flinging yourself, or your kid, around for an hour isn’t a match made in heaven.

2 –  For specials, discounts and event notices, be sure to add your name to your favorite trampoline park’s listserv and check the website. Also, sometimes bulk discount shopping websites, like Groupon, will have sales to area parks.

3 – Be sure to bring socks or wear socks. Some places don’t require anything on your feet but others do and you could save yourself a few dollars by bringing your own socks.

4 – Reserve online ahead of time for peak jumping hours so you don’t have to wait when you get there.

5 – Look for little kid-only jumping times and go then if you’ve got smaller children. It makes it easier to not only keep track of them but also to keep them out of the way of bigger kids.

6 –  Looking to get fit or lose weight? Some trampoline parks have fitness classes. Some estimates say that you burn as many calories jumping on the trampoline for 10 minutes than you do with 30 minutes of jogging. I believe it – jumping is hard!

7 – Trampoline parks have waivers you need to fill out before you can jump around. Do it online so you save time when you arrive.

8 – Some programs will oftentimes be suspended during holidays (like the little kid jumping hours) so be sure to call ahead or check their website before you go.

9 – Wear super comfortable clothing – think shorts, t-shirts, jogging pants, sports bras. It’s essentially an athletic activity that does require the participant to move around substantially.
