Jumpin Fun InflataPark opens in Lakewood Ranch, Florida.
In Europe the indoor family entertainment industry has continued to pivot away from Trampoline Parks and towards Inflatable Theme Parks or InflataParks, and now the USA is following in their footsteps.
Brett Morrow, owner of Jumpin Fun Inflata Park, explains his mentality of “innovate or die”.
Jumpin Fun Sports was an independent Trampoline Park located on the gulf coast of Florida in Lakewood Ranch that had been open for 8 years.
Even before SkyZone opened up on his doorstep in Sarasota, he knew that he had to stay ahead of the curve. This was solidified with the news that Defy Trampoline Park (another huge national brand) was opening in Bradenton.
This would have left Jumpin Fun Sports pinched between two large national Trampoline Park Franchises.
Jumpin Fun had already started to move towards the adventure park model with the introduction of three action rides from Galaxy Multi Rides. The centerpiece was the Adrenalator, a 20ft reverse conveyor belt pitched at 27 degrees with two large inflatable slides to exit.
Following the success of these three rides Brett spoke with Robin Whincup, owner of Galaxy Multi Rides, about bringing an Inflatable Action Park to the United States.
Galaxy InflataParks had just installed the World’s Largest Inflatable Theme Park for We Are Vertigo in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Brett Morrow wanted to convert his trampoline park to an inflatable action park just like Gareth Murphy had in Europe.
A plan was formed a the process of converting the trampoline park to an inflatable park begun.
14 days it was all it took from the last trampoline customers bouncing to the InflataPark being finished.
What is there to do in Jumpin Fun InflataPark?
Over 15,000 square feet of Inflatable Park attractions matched with mechanical attractions such as the Adrenalator, the world famous Meltdown sweeper game and the popular action maze race, Dizzy X.
As with other Inflatable Park installations around the world, we worked with our friends at Zip Zag Rides to install a 250ft gravity fed rail coaster, much like a zip line, above the Inflatable Park.
