Leap of Faith | Monte had a blast trying this over and over again. He almost made it a couple of times! A fun challenge if you want to build up your courage.

ProZone Performance Trampolines | Monte was in awe watching the other kids bounce in this area. I encouraged him to give it a try! He had some trouble getting to the top, but a sweet kid helped him get up there so he could experience the fall.

Warrior Course | You could find both kids in the warrior course the majority of the time and even mom gave it a try! There were about five courses available with different experience levels, and that did not stop my kids. They tried all the levels several times. I think the highlight was falling into the large, clear ball pit!

Wipeout | This is a fun challenge! Grab the entire family and see who is the last to survive. Jump or duck to make sure you do not get hit by the cushioned bar.

Meet the Bowl | If you have younger kiddos, The Bowl is the perfect place for them to jump without all the big kids around. This area is designated for 7 years or younger. They also offer a seating area nearby so you can watch.

Battle Beam | Another great way to challenge your balance and strength. If you lose, you fall into a large foam pit.

APEX Trampolines | Get all your bouncing out in this area. Bounce off the walls, do flips, and more. This was pure heaven for my little aspiring gymnast.

Tubes Playground | A playground, because why not?! This playground/obstacle course offers multi-level tubes, slides and more. A ton of fun for anyone 52 inches or shorter.

Dodgeball | Who does not love dodgeball?! And adding dodgeball to a bunch of trampolines makes it even more fun. There is a whole designated area for this super fun game.

DropZone | Another favorite for my little gymnast. The perfect place to practice your flips and spins.

Slam Dunk Zone | Become your favorite NBA star and practice basketball in this fun area. Jump to the sky and slam dunk!

Tumble Track | Obviously, if you have a gymnast in your family or aspiring gymnast, Urban Air Adventure Park is the place to be. The Tumble Track is another great place to practice your jumps and flips.

Know Before You Go

  • There are a few lockers and lots of cubbies available. Do not bring in anything super valuable.
  • Can you wear your own socks at Urban Air Adventure? No. Personal socks are not allowed – you must purchase their socks. Keep them for your next visit to save money.
  • Create a “base” before your kids go off to play. It can get super busy, so if your child knows where to find you, it will help. I definitely felt comfortable letting my kids run off and play. There are employees everywhere that are super helpful and encouraging.
  • You must sign an Urban Air waiver before you play. Sign your waiver before you go to save a chunk of time when you arrive.
