The first and only indoor trampoline park in North Texas has bounced into Plano. A gigantic, color-filled complex of fun, jumpstreet Indoor Trampoline Park and Family Fun Center includes more than 40,000 square feet of trampolines, trampoline dodgeball courts, games, a party section and more.
The jumpstreet concept came to fruition around five years ago, when owner Tim Crawford opened his first location in the Denver area. “Growing up, I never knew of a place where kids could bounce off the walls without driving their parents crazy. Now with jumpstreet, they have that place, and the parents can even join them,” he says.
Inside jumpstreet, which is fully carpeted and emblazed with red, yellow, green and blue décor, trampolines are built into the floor and at various angles on the walls, enabling customers to jump from one trampoline to another on the floor; to flip, twist or run a gauntlet of tumble trampolines; or to literally bounce off the wall. Everything in the facility is padded or covered with netting, so there are no open springs to bump into. Even the carpet and flooring around the trampolines is padded. Staff bouncers are strategically positioned throughout the facility, ensuring that everyone is safe and abiding by the rules.
