In 2017, Trampoline Park Source began with the mission of cataloging the trampoline parks across the United States. As the project grew, it quickly became clear that a 'trampoline park' has evolved from a standalone business to multi-attraction family entertainment centers. New trampoline parks almost universally include additional attractions like ninja courses, adventure park attractions built for indoor use, and family entertainment center elements. Existing entertainment centers have also adopted trampoline park builds as an additional attraction in their facility. The result is a constantly blurring definition of what a 'trampoline park' really is.
Action Park Source (APS) grew out of the need to define the evolving trampoline park industry. The term 'Action Park' was created to encompass the existing trampoline park industry as well as any future growth the industry may see. For a more detailed definition of the industry, please see our article: What is an Action Park?
Action Park Source is setting out to define the industry by providing a constantly updated database of parks that is cross referenced with the franchises & manufacturers that help make them a reality. You'll also find supporting written content in our knowledge section. All of this data is presented in a consumable, user friendly way that serves both the park visitors (B2C) and industry professionals (B2B).
The website is created with the following principles constantly in mind:
- Constantly strive to provide centralized resource with as complete and most up-to-date information possible.
- Provide information with an unbiased, influence-free point of view.
- Only publish confirmed information - no rumor based information, ever.
- Inclusive of all brands, manufacturers, and other industry players as long as they are relevant to the resource.
The resource is a ever expanding and a constant work in progress. If you have any feedback, questions, or comments please submit them through the contact form.
"I have been in the wind tunnel industry since 2010 and skydiving for a few more years back beyond that. The journey to creating APS started in 2014 with the creation of the first Source website: Indoor Skydiving Source. This website began with the goal of centralizing information across the indoor skydiving industry. This model proved to be a success with ISS continuing to be the go-to resource as of 2018 with no plans of slowing down.
In 2017 I began exploring how to take ISS and expand the model out into new industries. After more failure than success, several re-branding efforts, and the creation of many websites, I am happy to see Action Park Source come out the other side. The goal is to use my experience with ISS to create another centralized resource, this time helping define an ever-growing and rapidly evolving trampoline park industry."
