For me, a trampoline park is one of those ‘sounds good on paper….’ activities.
We’ve been to Aerosports Trampoline Park in Oakville, a few times before so we don’t hate it here. But our experience is generally just ok. This is a place that we like *just enough* that we go a couple times a year.
We go because the thought of effortless bouncing, kids jumping their energy out, laughing as they flop into the foam pit…it’s all so alluring.
And it IS all of those things…for 20 minutes.
Welcome, don’t mind the puke!
Since this wasn’t our first time at this trampoline park, I wasn’t completely surprised to be greeted with some half wiped up puke spatter.
I get how it happened– you have a pack of youths, probably at a bday party, fillign up on pizza and cake and bouning around and then….pukesville. It could easily have been my kid. But it still wasn’t cleaned up even when we were leaving.
Moving on…you pay by the hour and you have to buy their special socks for 2 bucks, you keep them and can use them again.
The cashier suggested that we should re-watch a safety video before jumping. But our kids were so excited to get jumping they were literally pulling us by the arms to get to the trampolines….
Yay Trampolines! Now Lets Watch TV
Our kids headed straight for the toddler/pre-schooler section. This is the section you want to be in if you have little ones.
This section has trampolines, a foam pit and even a few play houses. When my daughter was under 2 years old, she didn’t really like to jump. But kids this age seem to love to build towers with the foam blocks.
After a few minutes of jumping and foam-pit flopping, my daughter notices PJ Msks on the one of the tv’s and wanted to watch it. I had to remind her that we came for the trampolines and we only had an hour, why don’t we have some fun jumping?!
Then my son saw the video game machines and wanted to play. I had to remind him that we came for the trampolines and we only had an hour, why don’t we have some fun jumping?!
Then my kids said they were hungry (yes we ate beforehand) and they wanted to buy food and it at the tables. I had to remind them that we came for the trampolines and we had an hour, why don’t we have some fun jumping?
We moved to the larger section of the trampoline park. The entire floor is trampolines in that section and there are some sectioned rooms to play sports.
