Have you heard about one of the most fun things to do in Charlotte, NC?
Among the many attractions available in and around Charlotte, there is the trampoline place. It is known as Sky High Sports and they are built on a single concept; having fun. People of all ages from 3 years old and up are welcomed to come year round. They even hold special events to let toddlers who are able to walk have time on the trampolines. No matter your age, weight, or gender, there is something about the irresistibly bouncy trampolines at Sky High Sports that can make your spirits soar as high as your bounce.
What is it about the trampoline place that makes it so special?
Unlike regular trampolines that you tend to find for use at home or at school, the trampolines used to create the 360 degree jumping areas cover the entire floor and walls. You can quite literally bounce off the walls, and are encouraged to do so! The special trampolines also have a unique weave and tension to them so that they provide a lot of bounce but also have a lot of give to keep you moving and soaring without going through the roof. They are perfect for mesmerizing acrobatics and just general bouncing fun.
Why is bouncing fun for all ages?
Growing up most people were not allowed to bounce or jump on their bed. Bouncing and jumping on a trampoline can stir that buried sense of childlike imagination and wonderment at the moments spent in the air. You can imagine being on a low gravity world, or that for a few brief moments you are flying. As simple as it may seem, jumping on a trampoline can invoke a sense of fun and joy no matter how young or old they are.
It is not just fun.
Jumping on a trampoline is actually an excellent way to exercise and get in a great cardiovascular workout without even realizing it. For those who like the idea of bouncing around and having fun as a way to also get fit, they offer AIRobics classes that you can pay for one at a time or buy a 10 class pass. For kids or adults who are reluctant to get more active, disguising a workout inside play time is the same concept as hiding vegetables in brownies, and it works just as well if not better.
They also have trampoline dodge ball and other sporting variations that can help kids who are shy or not well accepted on school teams find a setting where they can participate and have fun. Being able to partake in these team activities can help kids in many different ways. Not only is it a healthy way to exercise, which can help improve self image, it can also foster good social skills and communication. Kids and teenagers of all backgrounds can come to the trampoline place and connect with peers in a relaxed and carefree setting, which for some can be well worth the small price of admission.
