Trampolines offer humans a fun way to experience the miracle of flight, unlike hot air balloons, which hover overhead and complain that you never visit. Jump into guilt-free aviation with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two admissions for one hour of jumping at Airborne Trampoline Arena in Draper (a $17.50 value).
Airborne Trampoline Arena catapults cavorters into high-flown entertainment and exercise with bounce competitions, extreme air sports, and more than 75 joined trampolines. Jumpers can tackle hoops in vertically enhanced basketball games or work in teams to take down friends in the dodgeball trampoline arena. Practice swan dives, belly flops, and thumbing your nose at Newton in the pit, a 30'x15' spring-fed swamp of foam blocks. Exospheric explorers of all ages can flip and fly on more than 40 wall-to-wall trampolines in the airborne arena, outfitted with a 270-degree bounce wall for multiplane and multidimensional caroming.
Striplings ages 8 and younger can caterwaul and cartwheel in the smaller kids' arena, which requires parental supervision and mandatory midleap naptimes.
For a bounce-free breather, caretakers can indulge in terra-bound entertainment in the parents lounge, equipped with free WiFi. Catch up on classic episodes of the local news on flat-screen TVs, or convince friends that you've been replaced with a slightly tawnier version of yourself after relaxing in one of the on-site tanning beds.

Airborne Trampoline Arena
Airborne Trampoline Arena has found a playful alternative to wall-to-wall carpeting—wall-to-wall trampolines. Kids bounce on the center's vast springy surface or literally bounce off the walls, which have wall-mounted trampolines of their own. For a break from bouncing, jumpers dive into massive foam pits filled with cushiony blocks. Youngsters explore the play space sans structure during open-play sessions, and the center also hosts trampoline-centric games and classes, such as bouts of Air Dodgeball and toning Airobics workouts.
