Trampoline Palace Sky Zone Brings the Best Bits Of Your Childhood Together

When was the last time you jumped on a trampoline? How about fiftyish connected floor trampolines, with vertical wall trampolines surrounding the whole thing? The answer to the former is likely years and the answer to the latter never, but Sky Zone — the world's first indoor trampoline park — will have you jumping back to your childhood in a bounce.

Sky Zone's newly-opened Brisbane facility brings the backyard staple indoors, unleashing the inner child in all punters. In hour-long sessions, patrons get the run of the 3000 square metre park to bounce to their heart's content. You can jump while slam-dunking a basketball. You can jump away from incoming dodgeballs. You can jump facefirst into a giant pit of foam cubes. And you can literally bounce off of the walls.

After obtaining a special pair of trampoline socks upon arrival (that are then yours to keep), jumpers can make their way to through bright blue and orange decor to the different sections as they see fit. For those after entertainment of the more organised variety, three specifically-designed dodgeball zones await.

Future Slamball players can jump and dunk baskets at the sky slam, with separate hoops for the tall and small. If flipping, falling and faceplanting is your thing, the pit is the place to be. If you want test your parkour skills, head to the wall. Jumping purist? Find your regular jumping hub (on one trampoline, or between many) at the stratosphere.

There’s more to Sky Zone than just jumping, including a three-storey laser tag arena that holds up to 40 combatants at a time. With a subtle Alice in Wonderland spin, gun-toting participants hide behind giant chess pieces, run past playing cards and dice, try not to be spotted in mirrors and peer down from above in the structure’s cloud-themed heights. Attempting to fell your foes while avoiding the same fate is, of course, the aim of the game.

Kids will undoubtedly flock to what’s certain to become the next big birthday party location, however the young at heart are equally catered for (there's even beer). Every activity suits all ages, even if older patrons might find the soundtrack lacking — sadly, Van Halen, House of Pain, Kris Kross and Destiny’s Child’s thematically-fitting hits don’t seem to feature on the park’s playlist.

For those more serious about the park’s weekly sport offerings, refereed dodgeball leagues will run every Tuesday and Wednesday night from late July, with winning teams receiving the not-so-shabby prize of $500. From August, the facility will also offer a range of fitness classes, spanning cardio, cross training and using suspension ropes.

Visit Sky Zone at 544 Kessels Road, Macgregor. Find more info over here. For now, scroll through the palace of your childhood dreams:
