Rhode Island's First Indoor Trampoline Park

Sky Zone in East Providence is holding special sneak peek openings for Facebook friends on Saturday and Sunday.


Published:

As a nanny to twin seven-year-olds, "bouncing off the walls" paints an all-too-familiar picture in my head: noisy spaceship noises, ballerina twirls spun out of control, actual kicking off the walls. Suffice to say, I'm used to the "bouncing." Now there's a controlled, parent and nanny-approved alternative: Sky Zone indoor trampoline park in East Providence. If you "like" the business on Facebook, you'll find instructions on how you can gain sneak peek access to preview openings on Sat., Dec. 22 and Sun., Dec. 23 from noon-8 p.m. for only $1. The grand opening is Wed., Dec. 26.

Sky Zone, LLC, was founded in 2002 in Las Vegas, and has since expanded with more than twenty-five locations all over the country, including in Boston and Everett, Massachusetts. The wall-to-wall courts offer organized activities for all ages, turning every parent's nightmare into a fun, healthy and safe[er] indoor activity. "I'm always on the prowl for fun activities designed to bring people together," says owner of Sky Zone, Stella Downie. "We are thrilled to bring the ultimate play experience to Rhode Island. Sky Zone is an amazing combination of fitness and fun – and it is super affordable."

Sky Zone boasts the largest indoor trampoline space in New England, with more than 15,000 square feet of interconnected trampolines, a large main trampoline court, a kid’s court, two ultimate trampoline dodge ball courts, a foam pit and a sky slam basketball dunk court.

And all that frivolous trampoline jumping is actually a great calorie-burning, low-impact workout (your knees will thank you.) The gym offers several class-like sessions for all varieties of jumpers, each designed for different levels. There's Open Jump for everyone; Ultimate Trampoline Dodge Ball, a spin on the gym classic; SkyRobics and SkyRobics 4 Kids, a combination of core and strength building airborne aerobics; and SkyJam, a late night jump around for eighteen-plus participants. Sky Zone also offers Toddler Time for small jumpers and Second Sunday, a slower-paced quiet time for jumpers with special needs, held on the second Sunday of each month.

Sky Zone also offers healthy food and beverage options for jumping-induced appetites. And it’s affordable fun, starting at just $8 for thirty minutes of jumping, $12 for sixty minutes, $16 for ninety minutes and $20 for two hours.

70 Pawtucket Ave., East Providence, 383-6000, skyzonesports.com/providence.aspx
