Trampolines are the best way to experience the thrill of being a kangaroo outside of moving to Australia and sewing weighted fanny-packs into the waistline on all of your pants. Mimic a marsupial with today's Groupon: for $11, you get two 60-minute open-jump passes at Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park in Rocklin (up to a $22 value).
Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park fills its aeronautical arenas with wall-to-wall, interconnected trampolines which host high-flying open-jump sessions, 3-D dodgeball, and dives into cushy foam pits. The two 60-minute passes can be split between two jump-buddies, or used by solo fliers in one two-hour session or between two visits. Jumpers of all ages can slip into an included pair of rental shoes and bound across the arena during an open jump, exploring diagonal trajectories and life as a video-game character on the wall-mounted trampolines. Somersault into the foam landing pit, filled to the brim with pillowy cubes that cushion falls better than a cloud covered in bubble wrap. Though access cannot be guaranteed and is subject to availability, the dodgeball arena lets teams exploit all three dimensions of the court to avoid the flying spheres of their opponents.
Inside each Sky Zone location, a wall-to-wall half-pipe made entirely of trampolines gives children and adults a venue where they can interact to their heart's content. The vast, taut, springy flooring doesn't end at the walls, but instead the trampolines continue upward to form angles perfect for crawling up, springing off, or sliding down. Visitors can meander along the bounceable terrain in the open trampoline arena, throw themselves into giant foam zones, or sharpen their competitive edges in trampoline-assisted sports such as dodgeball. SkyRobics classes merge gravity-defying fun with fitness during instructor-led workouts that include calisthenics, core exercises, and strength-building aerobics to help guests shed calories without hurting their joints or taking a wrong turn on a treadmill.
