Lined with 15,000 square feet of jumpable surfaces, Rebounderz Orlando provides a haven for anyone older than 2 to literally bounce off the walls. The site’s expansive dodge-ball arena is covered both horizontally and vertically by canvas supported by coiled springs, absorbing the shock of players as they duck incoming shots from their opponents and leap into the air. Elsewhere, in the trampoline basketball court, murals of screaming fans encourage b-ballers to dunk like Jordan while wearing wedding dresses like Rodman. A foam pit cushioned by state-of-the-art pieces flanks a third arena, where jumpers can safely spring from the trampoline and land safely inside the padded trench. No matter where participants choose to play, Rebounderz Orlando ensures safety by enforcing a rigid list of rules and requiring children under five years old to wear helmets at all times.
In 1965, Popular Mechanics ran a small classified ad for Brookstone, a new catalog company that packed its pages with functional products and detail-oriented descriptions. Brookstone quickly expanded to meet the high demand for its collection of “hard-to-find tools,” and opened the door to its first retail location in 1973. Today, Brookstone’s more than 300 nationwide retail locations allow customers to test-drive its ever-growing lineup of interesting products, which range from Bluetooth-enabled massage chairs to power adapters designed for international travelers and their electronic passports. Staying true to its roots as a catalog company, Brookstone houses an even larger selection of products, each waiting patiently to be shipped, on its website.
