Electric hues of orange and lime green complement the gleaming paint jobs decking B-Rad's Bike Stop's bicycles and emulate the road-visible shades splashing racks of riding accessories. Bikers of all stripes can find their ideal transport in the spoked selection, which ranges from town and beach cruisers to racing, road, and mountain two-wheelers. The shop's mechanics call on years of experience to execute each repair and tune-up, along with a stock of parts from several manufacturers, including Giant, Kona, Haro, and Troy Lee Designs. To fuel their passion for community involvement, the owners of the recently opened B-Rad's plan to participate in local charity events by sponsoring activities such as bicycle races and dramatic reenactments of classic Paperboy moments.
The crowd stands gaping as the young boy runs up the wall, bounces off of it, and flips gracefully onto the floor. Before they can applaud his agility, he backflips his way across the floor as though gravity is nothing but a suggestion. It is the walls and floors at Sky High Sports that grant this young daredevil a bounce-laden surface upon which to show off his aerial feats. Nestled within a 45,000-square-foot facility, the trampoline zone at Sky High Sports beckons jumpers of all ages to burn off steam and energy.
Along with the floor-to-wall-to-floor trampolines, the facility keeps appetites for adventure sated with a cushy sports-foam pit to dive into, as well as a private trampoline court that can be rented out for events, such as birthday parties or reenactments of favorite birthday parties. Young would-be kangaroos clocking in at shorter than 52 inches can zip around the kid zone for age-appropriate bouncing. In-house dodge-ball leagues transform the gym-class standard into a fast-paced bounce fest, and seasoned instructors helm Airobics classes featuring trampoline-centric moves to torch calories. An onsite snack bar and Fratelli’s Pizza stave off mid-jumping stomach growls, and an adult lounge equipped with plasma TVs and complimentary WiFi serves as a haven for parents to unwind as their progeny plays.
At Trampoline Cageball & Climbing Gym, visitors build strength, endurance, and awareness while participating in contact-free competition on several obstacle courses and inside innovative sports arenas. The facility's namesake, trampoline cageball, places participants in a one-on-one contest on an enclosed, Olympic-size trampoline. Players can reach heights up to 14 feet in the air while attempting to toss a 20-ounce palmable ball into the opponent's hoop, in a game that unifies the basic concepts of basketball, volleyball, and moon ballet.
In addition to burning calories and strengthening vestigial wings, visitors exercise total body musculature on obstacle courses such as the Ninja Warrior. Ninja Warrior challenges participants with varying routes on a 17-foot climbing wall and a ladder that requires significant upper body strength and a desire to impress potential mates in order to finish. Trampoline Cageball & Climbing Gym also provides free weights, slack lines, and climbing ropes.
