The price is expensive: $10 for 30 minutes which is about all a 6 year old can take...

Details:
- there is a water cooler but you need your own container
- crowded on weekends (not great for little, little kids)
- they have lots of staff monitoring crowds and safety
- when you come in you have to put in all of your data (email, address, phone all required) to sign off on the online liability form; we put in fake names and paid cash
- if you have a small child you should keep them company (there are lots of older kids around)

We would come back again...but it is expensive for a brief amount of fun. Bring lots of water, it is a workout.

Had a blast with everything from dodgeball to trampolines to foam pit. Good location.
Inside there are rooms for private parties as well as the mezzanine for a large party. Water is available for purchase. Socks with grips are required.

Stratosphere Social has been Re-invented itself from kids only to kid-adult venue. Seems to be working for you. I love coming to a place intown that I can have a Great time with everything we have done. The kitchen is right, foods Great & liquor sells its self.

I have been here 4 weekends in a row, to introduce family & friends to this great venue...But, there's always a "but"

Last night Sat Jan 29th, we arrived at 745pm for an 8pm Axe throwing Reserved block of time booked & paid for online 3 weeks prior. We were welcomed & promptly told "we can't have our reserved slot" and that "we forgot" to put it on our website. I glanced over at the bowling lanes how bout that.. "well bowling is a 3 hour wait" What??? There are 2 lanes being used !! Ok, how about we sit here for an hour for dinner & wait for the lane.. "well that wait is over an hour" seriously? ok we will be back... We left and enjoyed dinner & drinks somewhere else.. came back promptly at 9pm. Were here, "well it wont be ready for another 20mins" this is ridiculous, Where's the Manger, are you the mgr.?, "no.." she just looked at you, are you the manger "No, I'm not the manager"..so the Mgr. is no where to be found? (paused...Silence) ok i get it, you dropped the ball then conveniently cant be found. fine. so we walked around.. the girl came up to us 10min later.. "I've been looking for you...your lane is ready" ...930pm 1hr 45min after arriving as specified for a paid online booking..

I totally understand, a little group of 3 people with 3 other groups hanging around for their Axe throwing reserved time slots being pushed out by large Bachelorette Bachelor party booking which had the private area, Bowling lanes & all the axe throwing lanes...

But here's the hick-up. When you book online it asks for your name, your email & your phone# So at a minimum as a Non-existent Mgr. to save some face & call, email Text all the bookings you have displaced by the large party that has booked the entire Venue.. to let them know, that we made a mistake or our system isn't working properly....not just show up & hope for the best
Disappointing, Disrespectful & Unprofessional

Great place to spend some quality time with your friends, kids, loved ones. Nice people, cool atmosphere, awesome food, modern equipment. Specifically Grand Thank You to Bryan, who served the food and drinks to us during out visit. Great guy provides very friendly and professional service.
Their food deserves a separate special thank you. There are large amount of restaurants in the town, but I have to admit that Stratosphere's food is one of the best in the neighborhood so I'd like to say a special Thank You to the Chef and everyone involved in food preparation.
We had a great time in Stratosphere and lovely bowling.

It's not a trampoline place anymore. Bowling, arcade, virtual reality games and theater. Along with great food, service and a fun family-friendly environment. Staff was incredible, along with being compliant to COVID requirements and absolutely better then most places. Owner talked to us and appreciated our business. Sykesville and Eldersburg should be happy and proud to have such a cool place in our community. I'm going to let everyone I know about Stratosphere.😁😁😁

Drove 90 minutes to go here as my two boys enjoy jumping and playing dodgeball and have been coming here since this place opened. When checking in, was asked if they were doing the warrior course and I advised them no, just the regular jump. The teenage girl behind the counter advised that they still needed to purchase the new socks with grips on the bottom. When I asked why because we never had to purchase them before she immediately got very irritated with me stating it was policy. I mentioned that just a few months ago when I came, we didn't have to purchase them unless the boys did the Warrior Course. I politely asked for her manager and she rolled her eyes and another teenager who was the same age and said she was the manager. At that time, I asked for the owner. He said he was sorry but that they were only teenagers and that expectations shouldn't be that high of them?!? Really, that is an excuse? I have never been disrepected by an employee at any other establishment.
Due to horrible customer service and an incompetent owner, I will NEVER come back and will advise others to avoid this place. Fun place for the kids to play but the staff and management are horrendous!!! Note to owner, take some accountability on who you hire and recognize that customers will make or break your business.

I have taken my kids here several times and also had a double birthday party last February. I think they have become way too money hungry and thats kind of a shame. They added a new warrior course which you need a separate ticket for, you have to buy THEIR socks and you cannot bring anything from the outside. I was told i could not bring my own bottled water. Brought four kids for two hours and between socks, drinks, snack(dippin' dots) and tickets i spent $200. Thats crazy. I also paid $1000 for the birthday party i did there and was also expected to tip the obviously overwhelmed teenage party coordinators. We had over 40 kids in attendance and i did not feel they were equipped to handle that many kids. I was finding myself tracking them down for jump bands as kids arrived. It was very hectic. I do feel that they should always have an adult present on staff as every time we have been there its always teenagers. One other thing to note. When we did the party, i was given two free one hour jump tickets to use at a future date. When i tried to use them for our two hour trip they refused. I figured they could just charge me for 1hour for 2 of the kids but they would not. I thought that was a little ridiculous.

Played dodgeball and referee did not control even teams, face shots were constantly thrown and person throwing them didn't even so much have to sit out a game. Staff excused it as an accident! By the third face shot I don't believe it was an accident.
I reported this to the manager and still no consequence for the consistent hazardous rule breaking.
Not enough staff either. Even on a busy Saturday night.
I will never come here again.
No lockable lockers.
Unattended areas.
No she separated areas for smaller children.

This is a fun place to go with family. My kids ask to go here all the time. There arent many indoor attractions nearby so this is a great addition for the town.
