Trampolines are best experienced indoors to prevent bouncers from attracting the attention of the man-eating sparrows nesting on their neighbor’s roof. Bounce within four walls of safety with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two hours of open-jump time at FLIPnOUT in North Las Vegas (a $20 value).
Across its more than 10,000 square feet of interconnected trampolines and inflatable bouncers, FLIPnOUT hosts bounding amusement for jumpers of all ages. With two hours of open-jump time, in-flight individuals can explore every crevasse of the bowl-shaped arena, a brightly colored grid that emulates the experience of jumping on the recently tie-dyed moon. Somersault onto walls of trampolines to experience diagonal trajectories, or investigate extra dimensions as you play dodge ball or volleyball. Patrons can also whiz down the inflatable slide and reenact past lives as Boggle dice on inflatable bouncers. Retire to the arcade afterward for strictly grounded amusement, or visit the food court to quell the hungers of voracious vertical bounders.
FLIPnOUT Fun Centers
Growing up in North Las Vegas, Tracy Eliason discovered that time spent bouncing on a trampoline can take a person places beyond the yard. Tracy's bouncing talents took him to the Junior Olympics, where he competed in the Trampoline and Tumbling event as a teen. The accomplished athlete knows well how trampoline bouncing can be irresistible to kids. He opened his multifaceted jumper's paradise, FLIPnOUT Fun Centers, in 2010 to serve as an outlet for youngsters and adults alike to have an enjoyable time while contributing to their fitness. The indoor gymnasium is comprised of large trampoline areas, inflatable bouncy houses, laser tag, and a video game arcade. A staff of energetic young trampoline tutors advises tykes on the art of safe jumping, supervises trampoline-enhanced games of dodgeball, and helps show gravity it's not the boss of anyone. Also, fundraisers and birthday parties are often held at the bounce headquarters.
