Price varies by activity
Far more than a trampoline park, Laser Bounce offers fun for all ages, a fact that was apparent during our visit. Part arcade, part indoor playground, part bounce house, the cost of admission varies, depending on what activity you choose. The play session price includes an hour of play – 30 minutes in the ballocity arena, and 30 minutes in the bounce arena. Laser tag and virtual reality sessions can be enjoyed on-site, too, for an added fee.

Open for a few years now, this indoor trampoline park in Howard Beach, Queens, is a city and neighborhood favorite. The space features "Tumble Traks"–extra long trampolines that allow you to do flips and tricks (or just bounce) across the room. Kids love the obstacle course, two enclosed dodge ball courts, and dedicated basketball hoops. Launch Trampoline Park doesn't have an official age limit, but we think the trampoline park is ideal for kids ages 4 years and older.
