What is a Trampoline Park?
The trampoline park is a new age active entertainment option that has grown like wildfire since it's introduction in the early 2000's. Trampoline parks consist of multiple trampoline surfaces linked together to create various jump areas and obstacles.
This attraction is most commonly comprised of 4 main sub-attractions:
- The Main Court
- A Dodgeball Arena
- Foam Pit or Airbag
- Basketball Lanes / Hoops
As the industry has grown, these basic attractions have expanded to see many new trampoline-driven attractions. Offerings are constantly expanding to include new and bigger attractions. The trampoline park is also moving from a standalone business and is actively merging with the family entertainment industry.
Trampoline Park Attractions
These are the core attractions that make up the offerings found at trampoline parks. Attractions vary from park-to-park. We've listed the trampoline park attractions found at each location for your convenience.
Silks are hung from the rafters or a scaffolding and participants can perform aerial maneuvers and poses over a foam pit.
The airbag pit is another pit-attraction in the trampoline park universe. The bag lets you perform various tricks and land safely. These attractions are often found in place of a foam pit. While the airbag is less forgiving in the orientations that the jumpers may land, it can catch people falling from greater heights. Some parks offer an attraction where visitors can drop into the airbag from stationary platforms.
This attraction allows two participants to joust similar to the classic TV show American Gladiators. This attraction usually features a beam or two platforms sitting over a foam pit or airbag so participants can safely fall if knocked off. Jousters use padded jousting sticks to battle with their opponent. Some locations require the use of padded helmets which soften head-blows while others restrict head shots all together.
Many Trampoline Parks are incorporating climbing elements into their businesses. Attractions include pole climbs, bouldering foam pits, single climbing walls, bouldering walls and more. These elements are often interactive or specially designed. Some parks also offer attractions like climbing beams or sloped mountains for younger climbers.
Enclosed dodgeball courts built out of interlinked trampolines allow jumpers to play contained games on the springy surface. This attraction began and continues to be one of the core trampoline park attractions. These courts can vary in size and design. Some courts are 2D with two sides directly facing each other in a traditional dodgeball configuration. These configurations often net off one or both of the long sides of the court with the two back sides configured with angled trampoline surfaces. Other parks offer 3D ultimate dodgeball courts where the court is square or rectangular with both the sides and backs of the court using angled trampoline surfaces.
A fidget ladder is an attraction where participants attempt to crawl or walk across a highly-sensitive ladder. The ladder is secured from a single, freely rotating point on either end. This allows the ladder to twist side to side very easily. Usually the ladder sits over a foam pit, airbag, or inflatable to keep participants safe if they fall.
A trampoline park based flying trapeze is usually a single trapeze arm situated over a foam pit. Flyers grab the trapeze from one side of the pit from an elevated platform. Participants then swing out over the pit and safely drop down when ready.
The foam pit is another core trampoline park attraction. These pits usually sit against an open-ended trampoline lane or angled platform. This allows jumpers to perform tricks and land safely in any orientation. These pits are often also found below other attractions like a battle beam, fidget ladder or even in kiddie courts.
A kiddie court is a special jump zone in a trampoline park designed for young jumpers only. Often this area has a small set of interlinked trampolines, play elements, and even foam pits. These areas are attractive as families can bring a wider range of ages without worry of young jumpers mixing with the action of the older crowd. This creates both a safer environment and removes the need for special 'toddler times' that some parks offer. Usually kid-friendly courts have a set age range. IE jumpers 6 years or younger.
The main court of a trampoline park is the largest jump area. This attraction is made up of many interlinked trampolines in a large grid. The grid often includes a couple different features within the court. Along the edges of this area, you'll often find angled trampolines that enclose the space and allow for interesting jumping patterns. Often these areas have foam padded raised areas or features used as parkour obstacles by jumpers.
The TV show American Ninja Warrior has inspired the inclusion of ninja courses as a booming trampoline park attraction. These courses vary in makeup but often include various elements from the show's courses. Courses range from kid-friendly, mellow attractions over lightly padded floors, up to extremely difficult courses situated over foam pits to catch any falls. The contents and length of the course also vary from location to location.
A super tramp is a high performance trampoline that allows experienced jumpers to perform a wide variety of flips and tricks. Often these trampolines are situated along padded walls where jumpers can interact with the walls at the top of their jumps. These trampolines are capable of creating a much higher bounce than the surfaces found in a main court.
Slacklines are generally installed over a foam or airbag pit. Walkers can test their skill as they attempt to walk from one end to the other.
Trampoline parks have embraced the basketball dunk as a core attraction. You'll often find basketball hoops positioned on the edge of courts throughout a park, or as a standalone attraction. The trampoline bounce allows for anyone to make amazing dunks far out of their normal reach. The range of basketball-based attractions at parks vary, so check with the specific park you plan to visit for details.
Combining volleyball and trampolines makes for some exciting games for players. A volleyball net is strung across a field of interlinked trampolines to create a specialized court where an intense, bouncing game can be played.
A tumbling lane is a long strip of trampoline that allows jumpers to link tricks, flips, or tumbles together with movement. These originated in traditional gymnastics and have found their place as a common trampoline park attraction. The long lane creates exciting new possibilities for jumpers.
The wipeout attraction draws it's inspiration from the TV show of the same name. A padded rotating beam spins while participants attempt to stay on their platform.
These are additional attractions often found at trampoline park locations. Often these locations are more than just a trampoline park and are often a combination of a family entertainment center. These attractions are less often found at the locations in our database. They will be listed when they are.
You'll commonly find arcade games as part of a fun center offering. These arcades are not to be confused with a redemption arcade. The sole difference being that in a redemption arcade, you're rewarded with tickets for your game performance which can then be traded in for prizes. A traditional arcade does not have this redemption aspect to it.
Some fun centers offer a traditional indoor basketball court for participants. These courts can host much more than just basketball and are often seen in full court or half court configurations.
Batting cages are a classic family entertainment center offering. These enclosed, netted areas allow for participants to step up to the plate and take a swing at a few fastballs.
This common family entertainment center attraction is often found at larger establishments or even specialized facilities like go-kart tracks. These lanes can come in a variety of styles including regulation sized lanes and mini-bowling lanes.
This classic family entertainment center attraction has participants driving slow-speed cars with a padded ring allowing drivers to safely crash into each other. This attraction has been around for a long time and has even spawned some spin-off games like Whirlyball. This attraction is often found at larger FEC's and is not a common attraction at smaller facilities due to cost and operational complexities.
The drop slide is a lesser known attraction in the family entertainment center industry, though it has grown in recognition in recent years. The slide features a tall, vertical drop with a gently sloping catch at the bottom. Participants are lifted up the slide hanging by their hands on a ski-rope type pulley. Once at height, they release their grip and drop down the slide, coming to a safe stop at the bottom.
Escape rooms have quickly grown in popularity due to their fun and challenging nature. Participants enter a room where they are mentally challenged to solve puzzles, open locks and try to escape the room within a set time limit. These rooms are often found as standalone attractions but are also seen as part of an attraction offering.
Indoor Go Karts
Indoor go kart tracks can be found in many styles and configurations. From gas or electric karts capable of speeds of 40+ mph to smaller, slower family friendly karts - the range is wide. Some tracks offer competitive racing and even leagues. Others offer dual-rider karts to allow parents to drive with younger riders. No matter the size, indoor karting is a classic attraction that encourages friendly competition and has proven to provide endless fun to drivers.
Indoor Mini Golf
Indoor mini-golf is often a smaller and more compact offering than an outdoor course. These indoor courses have the advantage of not being subject to the weather which prevents wear and tear on the course and also allows players to enjoy miniature golf year round. Often indoor courses are also neon capable and can be played in dark conditions lit with black lights.
An indoor playground (commonly referred to as a Soft Play area) is a fun area designed for kids to explore and play. These playground are often constructed using a grid/netting system and include slides, climbing areas, ball pits and various other interactive spaces. These playgrounds were born in the Family Entertainment Center industry but have expanded to become a common trampoline park attraction. Again this is where we developed the classification of Action Park to help define the growing industry.
Indoor Ropes Course
The action park industry as adopted the ropes course from the adventure park industry, scaled it down, and brought it indoors. These attractions began in the adventure park as ropes courses strung between trees. Participants move from platform to platform across a variety of balance oriented challenges, all while supported via a harness and safety system.
Indoor Skate Park
The indoor skate park allows for year round skating, biking and scootering by participants of all ages. From mini ramps, to mega ramps, to bowls, to street courses, the possibilities are endless. Though rare, some action parks include an indoor skate park as part of their attraction offering.
The indoor skydiving industry has been around since the 1980's and has grown wildly since about 2010. Using a vertical wind tunnel to generate vertical airflow, flyers are able to safely lay on the column of the wind and simulate skydiving. These facilities are largely standalone though through recent development have become more and more efficient. Smaller installations are allowing for installs in smaller markets and even to see them as part of an action park offering rather than just a standalone operation.
Some action parks have taken the zipline and brought it indoors. These installations allow for a weather-independent zipline experience for participants. Because of the space restrictions (both horizontally and vertically) these ziplines are often much smaller in scale than outdoor installations.
Inflatables come in a wide variety and are a common family fun center attraction. They come in a wide variety of configurations from simple jump houses to complex playground setups. Usually inflatables are designed for younger participants.
The Laser Maze is a relatively new attraction in the Family Entertainment Center industry. A laser maze installation shoots a variety of tripwire style lasers through a dark room. Participants must pass through the room and complete a defined goal without breaking any of the beams. These installations are attractive for parks as they require a small amount of space, carry a low initial investment, require little maintenance, and are very profitable.
A laser tag arena as a standalone or core attraction is most often an indoor and black-lit arena. Sometimes smaller laser tag arenas are offered as part of a Family Entertainment Center. A standalone laser tag facility will often be a 10,000+ square foot facility with support for 50+ players at a time. These arenas are often equipped with blaster and vest systems which allow for various game types and scoring modes for participants.
Midway games are not to be confused with the classic video game developer. These games are actually similar to those you'd find at a fair or carnival. Classics include ring toss, horse racing, basketball, Skee-Ball and shooting challenges. Similar to a redemption arcade, these games often produce tickets for the participants that can then be redeemed for prizes.
Outdoor Go Karts
Outdoor go-karts are a classic Family Entertainment Center offering. These outdoor tracks allow for gas-powered karts, often aimed at younger drivers. Some tracks include double karts that allow parents and children to race together.
Outdoor Mini Golf
An outdoor mini-golf course is a seasonal offering of many family fun centers. These courses often include large sculptures and obstacles for participants to enjoy.
These ziplines were born from the adventure park industry. Stringing a stranded metal cable between two points allows participants to fly down the zipline in a harness system or hanging by their arms with pads below. This attraction comes in various sizes and is operated seasonally.
A redemption arcade includes a range of arcade games for participants to play. These games give tickets based on the performance of the player that can then later be redeemed for a variety of prizes.
Rock Climbing Wall
Family Entertainment Centers have embraced the auto-belay technology which allows a single participant to safely climb and be lowered to the ground without the need of another person (belayer). These auto-belay systems have been incorporated into a wide variety of climbing wall installs in FEC's. You'll find themed installs, projection supported climbing walls, climbing towers or even larger traditional indoor climbing wall installations.
A turf field is an indoor AstroTurf field that can be used for a variety of sports-centered activities. Commonly you'll find this field hosting soccer, football, flag football, soft dart warfare and more.
Family Entertainment Centers are quickly adopting various virtual reality attractions into their offerings. These virtual reality experiences can range from simple games up to fully immersive simulators. Often groups of players can link up in a virtual world and participate or compete together in a variety of games and interactive experiences.
Zipline Roller Coaster
This new attraction has combined the open air thrill of a zipline with the track concept of a roller coaster. These zipline roller coasters are found installed both indoors and outdoors, with the originals constructed using towers and suspended between trees. The trampoline park and fun center industries have brought these rides indoors to allow for year round operation.
