New Sky Zone in Springfield Lets NJ Kids Grab Some Air
Trampoline parks are all the rage these days, and Union County families are jumping at the chance to try a brand-new option on the Route 22 corridor. Sky Zone Springfield is the newest location in the Sky Zone family, where kids of all ages (and adults) can burn off some serious energy all year round with a variety of fun, indoor attractions. Just don some non-slip grippy Sky Socks, and prepare to defy gravity.
The huge space allows for a variety of activities.
At this 35,000-square-foot facility, which opened at the end of February, there's no shortage of ways to spend your 60-, 90-, or 120-minute time slot (tip: buy sessions online to save time). Bounce with buddies on the enormous grid of Freestyle Jump trampolines; some are angled to make tricks even more exciting. Basketball fans will love dunking and playing hoops on the SkySlam tramps. Older kids can bring it on the Ultimate Dodgeball court or challenge a friend gladiator style in a SkyJoust. Grab a padded pole and try to knock your opponent off the platform. (Don’t worry—there’s an air bag or foam pit below.)
One SkyZone fave is the massive Foam Zone, where you can safely jump, flip, and dive feet first into a giant foam pit. Nearby is a wobbly SkyLadder. Try to climb to the top without falling into the padding below, or give the Warped Wall a go. Scaling this curved ramp takes some serious energy!
Little jumpers will enjoy dedicated Toddler Time.
The staff monitors the facility to ensure the safety rules are followed, but little jumpers ages 5 and under can enjoy Toddler Times. These weekend sessions are held 9 to 10am.
Summer Camps and Parties
If you’re looking for something to occupy the kids this summer, Sky Zone Springfield is planning half-day weekly summer sessions; sign-ups are daily and weekly. Sky Zone Springfield also hosts birthday parties and large groups.
