To Jump, Climb, Tumble and More: Chelsea Piers
If your kids want to do more than just jump, head over to Chelsea Piers Manhattan, home to a gymnastics center, hardwood basketball courts, two playing fields, a 25-foot rock climbing wall, and, of course, trampolines. Get your kids rocking and rolling with the Rock-n-Roll drop-in class, which consists of 45 minutes of rock climbing and 45 minutes of gymnastics and trampoline mania. Kids can jump on the trampolines and dive into a foam pit and then take a bounding, bouncing run down the tumble track.
Small kid tip: For little ones, try CP Champs, which is geared toward kids ages 2 1/2 to 5. The three-hour session’s activities include trampoline, foam pit, and rock climbing, as well as story time and arts and crafts. Pre-registration is required, and must be done at least 24 hours in advance.
