Trampoline park or bounce house—what's the difference?
Most trampoline parks feature huge grids of rectangular trampolines so kids can leap side by side or bounce from one trampoline bed to another, and many have angled trampoline walls, so they can literally bounce off the walls. Foam pits filled with thousands of soft blocks invite younger kids to jump in with flying leaps and flips. Throw in some dodgeball and trampoline basketball courts, and older kids will be entertained for hours.
Inflatable bounce houses feature obstacle courses with climbers and slides, padded jousting rings, and bouncy basketball hoops. Some include laser tag and arcade games as an added bonus, and all offer party packages. Some facilities host teen jump parties on weekend nights, with the music turned up and lights dimmed for laser shows. On quieter weekdays, many jump zones offer toddler-only sessions, and some trampoline parks have begun weekday "air"obics classes for adults, with instructors leading a group in bouncing, balancing fitness routines set to music.

Floor-to-ceiling inflatables in two different rooms keep kids moving. They can climb up a slippery rope ladder to slide down a huge chute, or duck under obstacles to crawl up to the the top of another slide. Basketball hoops, air hockey, and foam construction blocks round out the fun. The Roselle Park location recently opened a Ninja obstacle course outfitted with hanging bridges, slack lines, jungle swings, and cargo tube nets.
Before kids can go airborne, parents or caregivers are required to sign safety waivers, which can be filled out online in advance and kept on file to save time. Staff members monitor the trampolines and bounce surfaces to ensure jumpers follow all safety guidelines, so be sure to remind your kids of the rules before they jump. Check websites for each facility's hours, open jump times, pricing, and special events, including toddler-only time, parents' nights out, and sensory-friendly jump sessions. And don't forget socks!
