HAMILTON TOWNSHIP — Ever since the Get Air Trampoline Park opened Nov. 1 in the outbuilding behind the Hamilton Mall, it has attracted hundreds of youngsters anxious to jump, flip and bounce on the wide variety of trampolines.
Unlike a traditional trampoline, which stands on legs above the floor, the indoor trampoline park features dozens of rubberized bouncing surfaces right at floor level, separated by walking areas.
In addition to the trampolines there are vaults and other obstacles, play areas for dodge ball and slam ball, a ninja course and a foam pit.
There is also a kiddie court for the younger visitors.
Participants can even watch their own antics on the delayed-view recording cameras and giant flat-screen monitors.
Weekends and holidays are especially busy times.
The park offers a variety of packages for birthday, team sport, corporate and family reunion parties.
Jeff Falciano of Belcoville brought his daughters Ayla, 10, and Lexi, 7, there on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for a friend’s birthday party.
“They are having a lot of fun,” Falciano said. “This is our first time here, but we definitely plan to come back. It’s a great form of exercise.”
The park is open 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday.
The park is reserved for toddlers 10 a.m.-noon Tuesdays and Thursdays, and for children with special needs 8-10 a.m. Saturdays.
On Friday and Saturday evenings the park hosts Club Air from 9 p.m. until midnight, with “hoppin' music” for the young adult crowd.
