US Teens Love Trampolining
The Sky Park Indoor Trampoline Park opened in Phoenix in the US this month, giving teenagers the opportunity to literally bounce off the walls. Capitalising on the American youth market’s growing interest in 'extreme trampolining', the park features 15,000 sq ft of trampolines, with a 5,000 sq ft jump arena, two dodgeball courts, a volleyball court, and a basketball court.
According to American news publication USA Today, at least 50 trampoline parks were operating in more than a dozen states in July 2011. This number is still growing, despite safety concerns. However, the popularity of the craze illustrates the youth market’s demand for more extreme and alternative leisure activities to push their bodies to the limit.
