Trampoline parks are a great event for the entire family. Whether you’re hosting a children’s birthday party or entertaining a group of friends, these 6 helpful tips will prepare you for your day of jumping.
1. Avoid the Busy Hours
If you plan on having a group event at the trampoline park, go when it’s not busy. The busiest times at trampoline parks are during peak hours. These hours are usually during school breaks, weekends and certain holidays. Wait times at the trampolines can exceed 30 to 45 minutes on a busy day. The basketball section and foam ball pits are very crowded during busy days.
2. Sign Waivers in Advance
Everyone who attends the trampoline park must fill out a waiver. While you can fill out the waiver once entering the park, you can also fill it out in advance online. This will save you the headache of having to wait in line. Completing the form in advance also allows you to read over everything at your own pace. Rules such as safety restrictions and required participation materials are also in the waiver.
3. Dress for the Occasion
Plan to dress for the occasion when attending the trampoline park. Tight clothing such as skinny jeans or tank tops are not good options for clothing when jumping at the park. Loose fitting clothes such as shorts, short sleeve shirts and sweat pants are better alternatives.
4. No Jumping with Personal Items
Personal items such as keys, wallets and cell phones should be kept out of your pockets if you’re going to jump at the park. Items such as jewelry should also be kept away from the trampolines. Some facilities have small storage lockers for personal items, however; you should bring your own lock.
5. Take advantage of Deals
Do your research on the local deals at your trampoline park. Most parks will offer military and kids specials during the week or even senior specials every day of the week. You can save money on admission pricing as well as food and drinks at the park on certain days.
6. Bring your own Materials
Materials such as grip socks are usually required when jumping at the park. Grip socks are found at the front desk for a small fee or be bought in advance. Drinks such as bottled water and juice can be brought in as well.
Jumping at a trampoline park is an entertaining experience for both children and adults. By having the proper materials in advance, you can save both time and money. Always remember to have fun and be safe.
