“Loads of fun.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

My kids have been there twice. It's nice for kids who outgrew Pump It Up. First time was during regular open time and a school day off. It was packed but fun. The second time was during a fundraiser, better time because the kids can find places to jump on the trampoline. They loved dodgeball. The basketball area is hidden around the back of the trampoline. Not easy to see unless there is a sign that I didn't notice. A little pricey for an hour when you have more than one child but fun to go to.

“High-Flying Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

The arena opened late last year. We finally got around to visiting it while some family was staying with us from out of town. Because it's so new, all of the equipment is in great shape. The place is clean, well lit and well laid out.
We arrived when it opened on a Saturday morning, hoping to beat the crowds because we had my young grandsons with us, and were afraid they would be stomped once the place got busier. The sign-in process was confusing. We waited in line to get to the counter, but the barriers they put up to "guide" guests didn't really help us figure out where to go. There were five people, all 18-25, behind the counter, but mostly they seemed to be standing around. When we finally got to the counter, we were directed to go back near the exit where you had to complete the online waiver form. After doing that, back in line for the counter.
You are issued a pair of "jumping socks," which are basically low socks with some rubberized grip strips. We all took them but several of us ditched them because they didn't grip as well as bare feet. If you are worried about the yuck factor, wear them. If you want max bounce action, go barefoot.
The place is very big with several different areas. The largest was the main jumping area which includes the angled trampolines around the edges. That's where most people spend most of their time. Next to that are five basketball hoops at various heights. Each had it's own enclosure and trampoline so you could bounce and slam-dunk.
There is a pair of stuntman-style air bags you can run and jump into. This was the place where the jump socks really let people down. When they would try to make the big launch-step from the trampoline onto the air bag, they would lose traction and not get very far. Climbing out of a five-foot-thick air bag is comical. We were concerned about the gap between the end of the trampoline and the edge of the airbag. Looks wide enough for someone to fall into, but no disasters while were there. Next to the air bags is the free-for-all dodgeball arena.
We had a great time but were very glad we got there when we did. By 11:00, it was hard to find a place to jump. When we arrived, we debated about whether to play for a half hour or full hour, and were glad we did the full hour. Several in the group were sweaty messes when we left. Bouncing is a lot of work!
Great fun, Great facility. My 3- and 6-year old grandsons enjoyed it, as did my adult daughters. The only downside is the staff, which is just this side of useless. None of the nabobs behind the counter thought to advise about filling in the waivers before getting in line. Our safety instruction, delivered by someone who looks like he just rolled out the van he slept in, was vague and incomplete. There was very little enforcement of the rules that are posted in several places. A friend who'd been before had exactly the same experience. My grandson's jump socks were too small and kept falling off. I asked for the next bigger size and was told I'd have to buy them. He went barefoot instead.
And in the hour we were there, I never saw one of them smile. They were uniformly bored-looking and indifferent. They mainly stood around and practiced their whistle-twirling skills. They really seemed to want to be somewhere else, and this was within the first hour of opening.
We've frequently visited the Laser Quest in Canton, and that staff is remarkable. They are always enthusiastic and fun, and they make sure everyone understands the rules before playing. Considering the much higher danger in a trampoline park, Sky Max should go to school on the approach they take at Laser Tag.
