What You Need to Know About Trampoline Parks in NJ

Trampolining is a blast, but there is stuff you need to know before you go.

Trampoline parks are popping up all over the country, (especially here in New Jersey) and they’re tons of fun and a great workout. But you can’t just wander in, hope to bounce with your kids for a few minutes and leave. There’s a lot more to it than that.

Where they are: There are ton of places to get your jump on, including Rebounderz, Skyzone and BounceU. Get Air has a new location opening in Mays Landing sometime soon. Check below for more locations.

How much it costs: Rebounderz starts at $12 per 30 minute session and goes up to $29 for longer jump times. Skyzone jumps range from $12 - $30 depending on length of jump time. Stratosphere’s prices are $10 - $22 for varying jump times.

You need to make a reservation: Chances are if you go on a random Tuesday on a school day, you’ll have no trouble getting in. But if you’re going at night, or on a weekend or during a school break there’s a good chance you’ll have to wait. Sometimes several hours. Buy your tickets and reserve your jump time.

You have to sign a waiver: This is HUGELY important. There is a form to fill out -- save time and do it online. If you are not the legal guardian of a child, you have to get the parent to fill it out, or print out a copy and sign it before you go. Don’t bring someone else’s child without a waiver, because everyone will be disappointed.

You need special footwear: No shoes allowed at these places. Stratosphere and Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park will let you wear your own socks, but Rebounderz and Skyzone require you to purchase their reusable socks. Rebounderz’s cost $3 a pair, and Skyzone’s are $2/pair, but are sometimes included with longer jump times.

These are not soft bouncy houses: If your kids are used to Bounce U or inflatable bounce houses, this is not that. These are real trampolines (with some padding around them) meant for some serious all age bouncing. The main jumping areas are trampoline rectangles separated by squares, and referees are on hand to make sure no one is trying ridiculous flips or acting in a dangerous way.

There are kids of all sizes: If you’ve got a really little one in your group, keep a close eye on them, as there are adults, teenagers and kids of all ages messing around here.  The referees are on the lookout, but that doesn’t mean little kids are safe from getting accidentally bumped by bigger kid.

There are age restrictions: Stratosphere has an “if you can walk you can jump” policy, and kids under 2 are free. Rebounderz allows 2-5 year olds (but requires them to wear a helmet) and they are only allowed in Monday-Wednesday. Skyzone allows all ages, but separates people by size.

You can jump with your kids: Sorta. You are welcome to jump, but at Skyzone you are separated by size. So if you are trying to stay with your little one, it might be a challenge. Meaning that your toddler might be on one side of the giant football field sized area, and you’ll be on the other.

There’s more to it than just trampolines: Skyzone, Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park and Rebounderz both have giant pits filled with foam blocks pits where you can hop down a trampoline and flip (or flop) yourself into, and basketball hoops where you can jump and dunk. Stratosphere lets you jump into a giant air bubble (think those big air mattresses you see stunt people jump into) and has a mechanical bull ride. All three places have dodgeball areas (you may want to keep the real little kids out of here), where the game gets even crazier as you try and bounce out of the way of the flying balls.

How much time you need: Your kids may beg for 90 or 120 minutes. But start with 60 minutes for active kids (30 for littler ones) and see how it goes. It’s usually not a problem to add more time once you are in there.

There are fitness classes: Yes. After 30 minutes of bouncing with the kids, you’ll realize that you are exhausted. It’s an actual workout (and if you don’t believe it, your sore legs will remind you the next day). Skyzone and Rebounderz offer aerobics classes that are a killer burn --, they claim you can sweat out as much as 1,000 calories in an hour.
