With two courts of trampoline flooring, AZ Air Time dares to ask what games of dodge ball would look like on the moon. Kids leap across rainbow-colored mats to try and strike their opponents, heedless of the hubbub nearby, where fellow guests rebound off the surface and slanted walls of the 5,000-square-foot main trampoline. Elsewhere, basketball hoops mounted above trampolines permit players to add midair flair to their dunks, and a cushiony foam pit provides a soft space for safe jumping.
The futuristic indoor park is the brainchild of Barry and Jeff Jenkins, who welcome children to achieve giddy weightlessness in areas grouped by age and during classes that teach gravity-flouting tricks. Boot-camp sessions for moms also take advantage of how gentle a trampoline is on joints, unlike a 15-person tap-dancing rivalry. During parties, the sound of youthful shrieks bent by velocity fill the air.
