Trampoline Parks: The Newest Craze in Indoor Fun

It’s cold. It’s rainy. And the kiddos are literally bouncing off the walls, the furniture, and anything else they can make into a nifty launch pad. Long gone are the days of cuddling up next to a warm fire and reading a good book on a cold winter’s day. It’s time to get the kiddos out of the house and burn off some serious energy–stat! Lucky for us, there are several indoor play spaces where kiddos can go crazy. But if you’re looking for a space where your high-flyin’ daredevil can jump, bounce, and even flip, we’ve put together a list of six places (both in the city and beyond) where kiddos can get some serious air!
