If you have depleted your out-of-the-house activities this winter season, visiting a trampoline park in  northern Gwinnett County may be the solution for families seeking a place to burn off energy.

Jumpstreet in Lawrenceville is a climate-controlled atmosphere with wall-to-wall trampolines that tempts children to put down their electronics and enjoy some active fun.

David Benavidez, eastern regional manager with Jumpstreet, said children as young as 1-year-old to adults willing to bounce may use the trampoline park.

“We get a wide variety of ages,” Benavidez said. “There’s a separate area for ages 7 and younger. It’s the same as the larger area with trampolines and inflatables.”

Jumpstreet also offers other activities such as mechanical bulls and obstacle courses.

“It’s great exercise. It’s great for you,” Benavidez said. “It’s really for any age. I see adults coming out for exercise purposes. It’s great for cardio.

“It’s just a good time for the family, fun for corporate events, friends or large groups.”

For trampoline park newbies, the No. 1 tip Benavidez suggests is to jump within your own ability.

“I don’t want to encourage people to come and learn how to do a back flip or anything,” he said.

And while back flips are allowed at Jumpstreet, Benavidez reminds people it is a shared space.

“Jump within their own ability and they’ll have plenty of fun,” he said. “It’s going to be fun for any skill level.”

In the near future, though, Hall County residents can stay closer to home for some bouncing fun. Get Air is planning to open a location in the spring at 2283 Browns Bridge Road in Gainesville.

“We want kids to stop playing games, stop being on the couch and start being active in their life,” said Ashton Goodell, marketing director for Get Air.

She said the venue will feature wall-to-wall trampolines, including trampoline dodgeball and a ninja obstacle course.

“It’s a great option for when you need to get kids out, but you can’t because it’s too hot or too cold out,” Goodell said. “It’s a good chance to get their wiggles out.”

Get Air will be open to all ages and offer special times for toddlers. Guests may review the safety video and fill out waivers online before arriving at the park to save time.
