Very good

Birmingham, AL90 contributions
More than trampolines
Jan 2019 • Family
I visited this location with my daughters and their children who were ages, 10, 8, and 3. We were there because one child had been invited to a birthday party there and the others had free passes for the trampoline section. We went on a rainy, cold day and arrived about 6PM. The place was packed with lots of young people from toddlers to teenagers and a scattering of adults who were mostly watching the children but some were participating. There are several options for pricing depending on how many attractions you want to use. There is a zipline that flies overhead as you enter and a climbing wall and some other climbing activities. The largest area is for the trampolines and the various different activities that can be done on a trampoline. These included dodge ball, basketball, and some foam and ball pits in addition to the jumping options. There were also some arcade type machines and a special birthday party area. This is a very noisy place because of the nature of the activity and the general atmosphere seems to be chaos. There are employees scattered around the various activity areas but there did not seem to be much organization. Young people were running around everywhere with no one monitoring the walkway areas to be sure no one was injured by all the movement. The people that were monitoring the areas of activity were from my observation only there to have a presence there and not to actually try to control any behavior. My youngest grandchild suffered an accident caused by older children playing in an area designed for younger children that could have been serious if my daughter had not been there watching him. There was no monitor in that area at the time that it occurred. The children in our party had fun and wanted to go back and do some of the other activities but I don't think they will ever go there again. There are no time limits on how long individuals can stay so the place can get over-crowded. This makes it more chaotic and dangerous too. The lack of active supervision in the jumping areas was the main cause for concern though because it would be so easy for someone to get injured from careless behavior by themselves or others. It could be a good place for indoor fun for young people but it needs more organization and supervision for my family to go there again.
