Sky Zone Toronto - March Break GuideMonday, March 04, 2013
And they call it...
Have you ever seen an extremely large facility jam packed with trampolines, all connected to form one massive trampoline surface? I'm talking angled trampolines that allow you to literally bounce off the walls! Only the second of its kind in Canada, Sky Zone Toronto is now open and offers fun and fitness for the whole family like you've never seen before.
Last Saturday, my family and I were invited as guests of Sky Zone to check out what they had to offer. Little did I know how much fun it could be. Before you begin, you must have a signed liability waiver. You will then be given a pair of Sky Zone shoes which are designed to avoid any slipping while on the trampolines. Be sure to bring your own socks.
When you first enter, you will see three enclosed 3-D Dodgeball courts.
Further down, you will find the Sky Zone Open Jump. Supervisors are always on hand to ensure that safety rules are being followed such as one person per trampoline section, no running or horseplay and that larger jumpers are separated from the smaller jumpers.
Next, you can head into the Foam Zone where you can jump into a 5' deep foam pit. Trying to get out sure made me feel like I was
And then there's Sky Slam. This is a unique experience for shooting some b-ball... while in mid-air! Check out this little movie trailer I put together that captures the action and suspense of my son's first time in Sky Slam:
Finally, if you need a place for chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool, you can take a break in the rest area right next to the facilities and party rooms. They also have a concession stand that offers an array of generally healthy snack options along with pizza and beverages.
The kids and I had lots of fun. We stayed for an hour but I have a strong inkling the kids could have stayed for much longer. They didn't want to leave! A friend had left me a message that day on Facebook warning of 'post-trampolining sore glutes syndrome' but funny enough, I felt the most workout on my rotator cuff muscles. I guess it was from all that flapping in my pitiful attempts to 'fly higher.' Will we be back? You bet! With March Break just around the corner, Sky Zone has special hours in place that we plan on taking advantage of. If you have a toddler, drop in for Toddler Time on Tuesday and Thursday mornings or try out Skyrobics where you can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour. Sign me up, please!
