Trampoline park opens Plainfield site

PLAINFIELD — Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park is the site of Indy’s latest entertainment and fitness craze. The new 21,000-square-foot facility allows jumpers of all ages to leap to new heights while having fun playing 3D Dodgeball, jumping into a giant foam pit, participating in a SkyRobics class, or simply bouncing around in the open jump area.

Sky Zone is Indy’s only patented all-trampoline, walled facility. The newest facility is at 851 S. Columbia Road, Plainfield, near the intersection of Ronald Reagan Parkway and Stafford Road.

The $1.1 million project is headed by franchise owner Jeff Mast, who also owns and operates a Sky Zone franchise in Louisville, Ky.

“We are excited to open the second Indianapolis location,” Mast said in a press release. “The response to the Fishers locations was so incredible that we wanted to provide families in other Indianapolis communities with the chance to enjoy the concept. Regardless of your athletic skill level, this is a chance to come out with friends and family and experience the thrill first-hand.”

Based in Los Angeles, Calif., Sky Zone Franchise Group, LLC created and built the world’s first all-trampoline, walled playing court — a concept so unique it was awarded a United States Patent No. 5,624,122. Founded in 2004, Sky Zone, LLC operates three affiliate-owned indoor trampoline parks across the United States and currently has 30 franchise locations open with more than 64 slated to be open over the upcoming months. The company has awarded franchises in 23 states and Canada.

Featuring a capacity of 95 jumpers per hour, the Plainfield Sky Zone offers nearly 12,000-square-feet of walled trampoline surfaces. Those include five courts — two 3D Dodgeball courts, The Foam Zone, Sky Slam, and Open Jump. Expect the Dodgeball courts to be filled with people of all ages enjoying a pickup game, leagues, and even tournaments. The Foam Zone is a hit with children and adults alike who enjoy flipping into a giant pit of foam blocks. Sky Slam allows jumpers to try their dunking skills at two rim heights, and the Open Jump area is the largest of the five playing fields and allows everyone a chance to try out their best freestyle moves.
