No one likes jumping around like a kid, unless it’s his mother, or maybe his grandfather.
At Sky Zone Trampoline Park in Surrey, people of all ages are welcome to join in the fun. In fact, owner Morey Chaplick says he saw a jumper who was over 60 having a great time there recently.
“It’s a good workout,” Chaplick says, adding jumpers of all ages should stay within their limitations and ask for guidance from court monitors if they’re considering trying new tricks.
Jumpers should also be prepared to sweat, he says, and should wear clothing that wicks.
Sky Zone makes sure that all jumpers are given clear safety guidelines, and big kids aren’t allowed to jump near the little kids.
There is a separate trampoline court for toddlers throughout the day, and the jump park also holds Toddler Time sessions a few days a week. Toddler Time is half-price for the half-pint set, and the little ones get the place to themselves. There’s no charge for caregivers.
Court monitors are on site at all times, as is a manager, so parents can retreat to the parents’ lounge knowing their children are being watched and kept safe.
But toddlers aren’t the only ones who get to bounce around on their own. Starting in May, Sky Zone will host SkyJam for teenagers who are 16 or older.
The event will be held on Saturdays at 10 p.m., and includes 90 minutes of jump time, loud music, two pizza slices and a soda. The teens can shoot hoops in Sky Slam, play Ultimate Dodgeball or dive into the Foam Zone with their friends.
Sky Zone also hosts other special events, such as Sensory Night on Mondays, which launches on April 4. The evening, which runs from 6 to 8 p.m., is designed specially for jumpers who are autistic or have other special needs. The music is low, and staff have received training from the Canucks Autism Networkto create a safe and welcoming atmosphere for the jumpers. Caregivers only pay half price.
The indoor trampoline park is a short drive across the Pattullo Bridge, and an even shorter SkyTrain ride. The park is right across from Scott Road SkyTrain station, making it a 15-minute ride from Metrotown.
