I have been so excited to go to a trampoline gym for almost two years now. Finally, I had the opportunity it go with a large group of friends and our younger siblings. Because I had seen photos of friends who had been to various trampoline gyms, I couldn't wait to take pictures, jump around and enjoy our time.
The price was totally fair and relatively cheap, we paid $18 for 90 minutes of jumping which was more than enough. We chose this company and location because we heard there was a basketball area, dodgeball, a foam pit and other things besides the trampolines. We are completely unaware of how strict and limiting everything would end up being.
There are about 15 employees, young and not very professional, who stand in each area with whistles watching your every move. You must wait in line and go one by one to shoot a basketball into the hoop, jump into the foam pit and use a trampoline station. We went on a Tuesday night, it was relatively empty and the employees were getting restless and ready to go home, it was obvious.
The worst part, however, was when we went into the trampoline area and began jumping with each other. No one was being rowdy or obnoxious, we were just having fun. Two male employees blew their whistles and screamed at us to separate. It was very bizarre. Apparently, you must stand in your own square of a trampoline and jump by yourself…who wants to do that? I understand the rule if there are tons of little children around and it was hectic because someone would get hurt, but there were only the 10 of us and we were behaving fine. I felt like I was being watched like a hawk. The worst part was when I stopped to breath because this place is actually a hard workout and tiring, I was whistled at and told to "not stop jumping." You are literally not allowed to stop to breath. Again, I understand the rule if it was a busy Saturday with hundreds of children, but it was not.
The employees must escort you into the dodgeball area and watch you play before you can do anything. When we wanted to play we asked many different employees to help, it took about 8 minutes for someone to walk the 20 feet over to us. They took their time, stopping to hug one another and chit chat, while the clock was ticking and 8 minutes of our paid jumping time was going down the drain.
I loved the trampoline aspect of this experience, it is a great idea, a good workout and so fun for friends. However, I do not recommend this company at all. I know for a fact there are other gyms that have a laid back environment and still are as professional as needed in order to keep everyone from getting hurt.
Avoid Skyzone but definitely go to a trampoline gym!
