We have over 16,000 square feet of trampolines including two dodge-ball courts, a foam jumping pit, kids zone, and more! Plenty of parking, convenient location. This is an awesome facility designed for kids from age 4 and up. Jump America is great for adults too. It's a great place for birthdays, parties, day camps, schools, civic and community gatherings, and corporate events.

Fun, but get bored

When I went there, I had fun at first but after about 30 minutes I got bored because there was nothing else to do.

We had two events hosted at Jump America and have made many day-trips too! Always a blast for the entire family. Lots of trampolines and trampoline games. There is a mini arcade for some non-jumping activities and they permit you to bring food and beverages (Non-alcoholic). Highly recommended!

I checked the time and cost online before we left. When we arrived we were told we had to purchase grippy socks for each jumper. There's got to be a better way of doing business than to surprise your customers with an extra charge when they arrive. Also, they ask for a lot of personal information, DOB and driver's license...

Generally I agree. We would prefer to not take your information. One part is insurance requirement and another part is to encourage parents to only fill out the waiver for their own children. We do not use your private information for any other purpose. We do not share it or sell it. More

Took my 2 nieces (ages 8 and 10) here on a Friday night and the loved it! Tons of trampolines to use as well as dodge ball games going on and trampoline basketball. Pizza and pop were served (no healthy alternatives so bring your own)

Jumping around for an hour not only makes you tired when you're above 30, but also makes you feel a little like 10 or 15 again! Fun place, only the entrance process and extra costs for socks were not so good!

We visited with 5 grandkids and they had a great time. I think it would be good for kid parties also.

I recently took my 3 year old to their Toddler jump time one evening. It's way cheaper to go at this time if you have little ones, I think it was $8 for the 3 hour time frame. I was amazed at how large it was inside and how many trampolines and various areas they had to jump in. Of... More

Bring your friends. Word of mouth is the best advertising. You will find us to be busier on the later parts of the week and the weekends. Birthday parties are a blast at Jump America. More

We are here for the third time now and with every visit we love it more. Toddler time is perfect, not to crowded and also good for children with special needs.

We've been here several times. Facility is very clean, super fun and they have a top quality staff. We had a problem today with an extremely aggressive, large child in the dodge ball area. Management handled the incident very well. They even reviewed the video tape on the spot, the aggressor's actions were documented and taken very seriously. There is... More
