Sky Zone to add features

The trampolines aren’t going anywhere, but they are getting company.

Five years after opening in Sioux Falls, Sky Zone Trampoline Park is adding features.

“We’re freshening things up,” franchisee Scott Redd said. “It’s the five-year mark, and with any business you’ve got to freshen it up. We’re not going away from our core open-jump trampolines and dodgeball, but it doesn’t hurt to bring in some cool, new stuff and things people have to go to other states to do now.”

He has already added a rope ladder in the foam pit and Sky Wars, which he compares to “paintball with Nerf guns on a trampoline.”

The new Sky Zone innovations will be revealed soon, he said. He’s converting about 1,500 square feet to make room for them.

“We’re adding four innovations in that area, and three of the four are something no one has seen around here, so that’s going to be pretty cool,” he said. “One in particular is a climbing feature that’s interactive, and we’re a beta test park. It’s only been used in one other Sky Zone with tremendous success. You look at it and go, ‘Wow.’ ”

When he franchised the business, there were 30 locations, and Sky Zone ownership was “very skeptical” about putting one in a market the size of Sioux Falls, Redd said.

“They were worried about whether it would make it, and I said: ‘Give us a chance. I think we’ve got the right size park, and I think it will work,’ so they did, and it was really successful. And I think we opened the door for Sky Zone because there are a lot of them in smaller towns now because they knew it worked.”

The trampoline park is at 5129 S. Solberg Ave. in southwest Sioux Falls. Last year, it partnered with GreatLIFE Golf & Fitness to offer additional benefits to GreatLIFE members, including a $10 monthly Sky Fitness membership.

“If you’re a GreatLIFE member, it’s an awesome deal on Sky Fitness,” Redd said. “You can add diversity to your workout, and it’s been popular.”

GreatLIFE members also receive half-price admission Tuesdays, $3 off jump packages Wednesday through Friday, and one parent per child can jump free with a jump package Tuesday through Friday.

Sky Zone is open throughout construction and offering special deals to everyone. GreatLIFE discounts can be used at the same time.

“So if you haven’t been here and want to try, it’s a great time to come to Sky Zone and give it a try,” Redd said. “We’re really excited about the innovations. I can’t wait to do them myself.”

The plan is to unveil the improvements for a Feb. 2 grand reopening.
