Go to an Indoor Trampoline Park
If you have never been to Rebounderz, an indoor trampoline arena that currently has six locations, I would definitely add this one to your bucket list!
When I first heard that there was an indoor trampoline park fairly close to me over winter, I immediately knew that I wanted to go there. Although I didn’t get the chance to go over winter break, my dream came true last night.
A couple days ago I asked my friend Victoria if she wanted to join me and was psyched when she said she wanted to go. Before you go to the facility, you’re asked to fill out a waiver online, which you can confirm with a license when you get there. If you are under eighteen, your parent or guardian has to sign the waiver for you.
What I really love about Rebounderz is how much the facility is geared toward college kids. I noticed on their Twitter account that they have 21 and over nights and some people we met there told us that on Thursdays during the school year they have college discount nights.
I think it’s nice to find a place that’s not solely geared toward kids, so you don’t feel like the a big galoot or nutcase when you go there. I also noticed someone tweeting about how famous people apparently love Rebounderz now too.
After watching a quick safety video, Victoria & I started out on the giant trampoline arena, where you can basically even jump off their trampoline walls. Of course, there are rules though, and the referees are there to blow their whistles if you break any; even so, the referees were so friendly and happy to show off how high they could get on the walls.
Victoria and I also found it comical how many regulars go there, who approached us to say, “We’ve never seen you here before; is this your first time?” They were also happy to show us their flips and tricks. Although Victoria could do some pretty good flips, I was only brave enough to do a few small ones resembling tumble salts (and one flip into the foam pit), because knowing me and my evident lack of motor skills, I pictured horrible outcomes if I tried anything more involved.
We also played trampoline basketball for a bit. I thought the funniest part was struggling to get out of the foam pit, which felt as if we were swimming.
We were still having fun when our hour was up, but discussed how going back there a couple times would be a great workout. The amount of times I needed to get water or take a breather made me realize that I might need to workout more! I would definitely go back to Rebounderz and recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a fun break from the norm.
So has anyone done something similar or plan on adding this one to his or her bucket list? I want to hear about your experiences!
