So the kids are home for the summer and you’re looking for a fun way to beat the heat? Head on over to Trampoline High, a 10,000 square-foot indoor trampoline park and aerobic exercise facility.
Located at 12395 SW 130th Street #111, east of Tamiami Airport and just west of the Don Shula, this a great family escape just a few minutes drive away. The facilities include a large open jump court, a dodge-ball court, a multi-hoop basketball lane, toddler bounce house, bungee trampoline, and party picnic table area.
Owners Madelaine and Peter Volum, along with another 50% partner, opened Trampoline High on February 14 of this year and haven’t looked back. “We own the building and when the last tenant left, we decided it was time to bring a personally rewarding business into the space,” explains Peter Volum. “Instead of shuffling papers, we now get to see smiles, happy kids and just good old fashion fun. My kids are in college already. Even they enjoy it when they visit, so our family has proven trampolining covers all ages.”
Upon entering the facility, you are greeted with a sea of sound. The place feels energized. Kids zig and zag in all directions, but are well supervised with yellow-shirted “bouncers”. These staff members seemed genuinely cheery and went out of their way to assist, answer questions and make sure everyone was behaving with safety in mind.
Shift supervisor Emily Harlow, age 23, explains, “This is a place to have fun. If the kids are a little shy, we’ll get right in with them, but most of the time they make their own friends right away.”
Bruce Spitzer, who is the general manager and safety consultant for the trampoline park said, “The most fun I’ve seen someone have is a 300-pound woman who held her own on the bungee trampoline.”
“We’re going to add decoration to make it more like a party place rather than a warehouse. We’re looking forward to installing colored lights and lasers along with a DJ station and a foam pit,” adds Volum, “maybe some gaming too… not video games, but air hockey, foosball and things that keep people active.”
Summer hours are Monday-Thursday: 11:00am-9:00pm, Friday & Saturday: 11:00am-10:00pm and Sunday: 11:00am-8:00pm. Costs are reasonable. They also offer party accommodations with standard kid food fare (pizza, chicken nuggets, etc.).
