As the weather continues to warm up around RVA, parks and playgrounds are filled with children. While Richmond’s outdoor options are plentiful; often, parks are too populated, and once summer hits, playing outside can often be a near impossibility due to Virginia humidity.
For families looking for variety and an alternative to outdoor play, local indoor trampoline parks offer an exciting solution. Richmonders are fortunate to have a few options from which to choose.
⭐️ Launch Trampoline Park: features a battle pit, dodgeball, basketball, and a challenger ninja course to ignite even the youngest competitor. Launch has an arcade, laser tag and offers Toddler Time on Saturdays 10-12 to ensure safe jumping for the littlest participants. Launch shares that they have passed a national safety and cleanliness certification, demonstrating the park’s attention to visitor and employee health and safety.
⭐️ Off the Wall: (9201 Midlothian Turnpike, Richmond, VA, 23235) is the most affordable option on this list at $10 per child for the entire day. Off the Wall is filled with bounce houses, a climbing dome and a few arcade games. To further increase savings, consider the family membership at $99.00 for up to three children.
⭐️ Pump It Up: (9555 Kings Charter Drive, Suite I, Ashland, VA, 23005) The huge inflatable indoor playground has open jump sessions during the week, on weekends and during spring break. Find deals on their website.
⭐️ Sky Zone Trampoline Park: (1345 Carmia Way, Richmond, VA, 23235) recently debuted two new attractions: Ninja Warrior Course and Parkour Blox. Visitors will also enjoy the Warped Wall, dodgeball and free jump in the large trampoline area. Older children will enjoy GLOW, featuring lasers, music and blacklights. To save, consider a 30-day pass at $34.99. This special is best if jumping more than three times in a month.
⭐️ Surge Adventure Park: (1406 N Parham Rd., Richmond, VA, 23229) is the newest indoor “jumping” facility in the Richmond area. At Surge daredevils will love the zipline; while, apprehensive toddlers can stick to bouncing in the toddler area. Other options are dodgeball, the ninja warrior obstacle course and a variety of arcade games. To save, take advantage of the Early Bird Saturday Deal. Jump from 9:00AM – 10:00 AM for $10.99. Surge maintains patron safety as a high priority. There are sanitizing stations, masks are required and tickets are purchased for a time slot in advance.
Whether as an alternative to outside play, for exercise, or family fun; trampoline parks provide Richmond families a way to have fun, get your wiggles out on a rainy day and beat the heat. So, what are you waiting for? Hop to it!
