Sky Zone offers 15,000 square feet of trampoline fun


Sky Zone, a trampoline park franchise with four Ohio locations and 63 nationwide, has opened a Dayton-area location at 976 Senate Dr., Washington Twp.

More than 500 people checked out Sky Zone on its opening day, said Joel Karg, managing partner of the indoor trampoline park.

“Dayton is a great Midwestern family-oriented city, so it’s a great addition to the area,” Karg said. “There’s a lot of customer contact.”

Sky Zone advertises itself as a family-friendly place where people of all ages can have fun while exercising. Prices range from $12 for a half-hour jump to a two-hour jump costing $22.

Customers must fill out a waiver before being allowed to jump, according to the Sky Zone website. Tickets can be preordered on the company’s website or in person.

A specific kind of sock that makes it easier to jump, called SkySocks, are required for jumping and are included in the price.

The business is open Tuesday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to midnight, and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. It is closed on Mondays.

C0-manager Dave Beckett said Sky Zone would be a destination park for people, especially since it features more than trampolines. A dodgeball court, a pit filled with foam pieces that participants can freestyle jump in, a trampoline basketball court, and multiple party rooms all are features in the building.

The Dayton business is a 26,000-square-foot facility with 15,000 square feet of trampoline space. It can accommodate 150 jumpers per hour.

Sky Zone employs 88 people, 40 of whom are full time, Karg said.

Karg and Beckett previously opened a Sky Zone in Pittsburgh, Pa. Karg opened another Sky Zone with another group in Buffalo, N.Y., but sold his share two years ago.

The nearest Sky Zone to is located in Springdale, a Cincinnati suburb.

The park will be open July 4 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
