Trampolines aren’t just for kids
You’re a grown-up. Your days of getting bruised up on the playground are over, right?
Not at Sky High Sports, a trampoline park with two suburban locations where you can relive your rough-and-tumble childhood--literally.
A spike in cabin fever led us to the Naperville outpost in a nondescript industrial park one recent weekend. We went during the height of kiddo birthday party frenzy, but we’re told nights draw an older crowd--especially during Sky High’s AIRobics cardio classes, which cost just $8 for 50 minutes and claim to burn 1,000 calories.
Intent on unleashing our inner kid, we got barefoot--park rules, unless you buy grippy socks--and joined in. ($12 to jump for the first hour)
We sampled two arenas with floors and walls made entirely of springy trampolines--each divided by padded walkways. It was easy to get a nice high bounce going, even if we weren’t brave enough to body slam into the angled trampoline walls.
We did take a running leap off a bouncy “runway” into a pit of soft foam blocks and slam-dunked a few basketballs with the air we could never get off hard pavement.
The whole time, we felt like we were getting away with something we shouldn’t.
