These 5 Trampoline Parks in Los Angeles Offer Kids Wall-to-wall Jumping
Bounce and repeat. What else do we need to say? Big kids, little kids, they all like to jump. Even Mom and Dad can occasionally enjoy trampoline time (though they might just prefer the trampoline park below that offers massage chairs on the sidelines). Bring a pack of kids for a birthday party, and they'll all sleep well afterwards; bring an antsy one on a rainy day, and watch the mood change for the better. Note that the 8 jumping gyms below can get seriously rambunctuous, but most offer special times or areas for toddlers and preschoolers. And if there's a stuntkid in your family, these are definitely addresses you need to know.
Van Nuys, Gardena, Anaheim, Torrance, Cerritos, Westminster, Covina, Thousand Oaks, Riverside
This national chain has the routine down: wall-to-wall trampolines, a dodge ball court, ninja warrior courses, ziplines, and special events like Toddler Time and Glow-in-the-Dark Nights. Figure in that jumpers are not only required to wear socks, but specifcally Sky Zone socks, priced separately. Keep track of them to avoid having to purchase more on the next visit!

Loads of trampolines, obstacle courses, basketball, and foam pits keep everyone happy at Get Air. Jumpers are separated by height, in an attempt to avoid accidents, which does mean that very young visitors are limited to a smaller area to keep them safe from the big guys; but Toddler Time is a good solution for little tykes. Like Sky Zone, Get Air requires that you purchase socks there, even if you have grippy socks from another bouncing gym.
Big Air Trampoline Park
Like its competitors, Big Air lines the room with trampolines and adds to the fun with dodge ball, a foam pit, and basketball, as well as a lazer room and a battle beam. Disco nights and bubble time offer a fun twist on the average bounce. Toddler Time is a good deal for little ones, and special needs playdates are another great feature. Big Air even offers a summer camp program, for kids who can just never jump enough.

Rockin Jump Orange County
As the name implies, the rock climbing wall here is almost as big a feature as the trampolines and the foam pit. Kids under 6 have their own area, which leaves bigger kids to go wild in the free jumping areas. But perhaps the best thing about this place is what it offers parents: massage chairs. Let the younger generation put strain on joints; Mom and Dad will be lounging on the sidelines getting a few knots worked out.

Our Orange County writer, Dana, wrote a terrific review of her family's experience at Circus Trix, which has since become DEFY. The short version? Her kids love this spot and can't get enough of the trampolines, foam pits, zipline, climbing wall, obstacle course, aerial silks, and flying trapeze.
