LOUISVILLE, Ky. (NEWS RELEASE) -- Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park is the site of Louisville’s latest fitness and entertainment craze – jumping off the walls.  Trampoline walls, that is.  The new 30,000-square-foot facility allows jumpers of all ages to leap to new heights while having fun playing 3D Dodgeball, leaping into a giant foam pit, participating in a SkyRobics class, or simply bouncing around in the open jump area.  Sky Zone is Louisville’s first patented all-trampoline, walled facility featuring a system designed by top engineers, welders and carpenters.  It is located in Jeffersontown at 2671 Technology Drive near the intersection of Ampere Drive.  The $1.3 million project is headed by franchise owner Jeff Mast and expected to open to the public on Tuesday, October 30.  Mast also owns and operates two Sky Zone franchises in the Indianapolis area.
“We are thrilled to have this opportunity to bring Sky Zone’s unique brand of entertainment to Louisville,” said Mast.  “Regardless of your athletic skill level, this is a chance to come out with friends and family and experience the thrill first-hand.”
Based in Los Angeles, Sky Zone, LLC has created and built the world’s first all-trampoline, walled playing court – a concept so unique it was awarded a United States Patent No. 5,624,122.  Founded in 2004, Sky Zone, LLC operates three affiliate-owned indoor trampoline parks across the United States and currently has 25 franchise locations open with over 40 slated to be open within the next 12 months.  The company has awarded franchises in 23 states and Canada.
Featuring a capacity of 130 jumpers per hour, Louisville’s Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park offers nearly 17,000-square-feet of walled trampoline surfaces.  These include six different courts - three 3D Dodgeball courts, The Foam Zone, Sky Slam, and Open Jump.  Expect the Dodgeball courts to be filled with people of all ages enjoying a pickup game, leagues, and even tournaments.  The Foam Zone is a hit with kids and adults alike who enjoy flipping into a giant pit of foam blocks.  Sky Slam allows players to try their dunking skills at two different rim heights, and the Open Jump area is the largest of the six playing fields and allows everyone a chance to try out their best freestyle moves.
For younger jumpers under five-years-old, Sky Zone opens for Toddler Time on Fridays between 11:00 a.m. and Noon.  This allows younger kids to have fun in the park with other jumpers their age and parents can take comfort knowing the jumpers are similar in size.
Fitness classes at Sky Zone are truly unique.  The playing fields add variety to an ordinary cardio workout, making classes like SkyRobics a new favorite for many.  The workout is invigorating and fun for all fitness levels and highly effective with an estimated 1,000 calories burned per-hour.
Sky Zone is a truly unique combination of active family fun, fitness, and recreation appealing to a wide range of demographics.  Offering three private party rooms, the facility is ideal for birthday parties, youth groups, school outings, fraternity and sorority events, corporate events, charity events, and any other function where fun is a priority.  “We’re looking forward to working with local schools, churches, and other organizations in building strong relationships within the Louisville community,” added Mast.
Safety is the top priority at Sky Zone – “Have Fun, Fly Safe” is our motto.  Similar to a life guard, a trained Court Monitor is stationed on each court to oversee the safety of all guests and help facilitate jumpers’ fun.  Although visitors are allowed to move freely about the courts, for safety purposes only one jumper at a time is allowed in each trampoline square.  All courts are walled with trampolines to ensure safety and add to the fun, as well.
What does all this fun cost?  “We designed the park with affordable family fun in mind,” said Mast. “We know it’s all about the customer experience - and it’s our mission to provide and promote fun, dynamic and health-minded programs that can be safely enjoyed by people of all ages.”
