High-tech climbing walls and giant foam areas will greet visitors at Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park, which just debuted several features.
“It looks really nice,” franchisee Scott Redd said. “We did a lot of the work ourselves, so we’re tired. We were in at 5 a.m. every morning and tried to get home by midnight, so it’s been long days, but everything’s coming together and we’re ready to welcome guests. We’re excited.”
Here’s a look at what’s new:
It’s 20-feet-by-20-feet and made in Boulder, Colo. Climbers scale this wall without a harness, but with a foam pit underneath. “It’s got straight runs and outcrop runs, so there are different climb routes for more experienced climbers,” Redd said.
The Sioux Falls Sky Zone is the second in the country to try out this high-tech climbing wall. It’s 15-feet-by-11 feet, and climbers interact with projected images along the way. One game projects bats that pop, vibrate and move as climbers hit them. Another is a 21st century version of the vintage video game Pong.
“You hit the digital ball and it goes the other direction, and somebody has to climb up or down to hit that,” Redd said. “It’s cool as heck.”

The improvements come as Sky Zone marks five years in Sioux Falls. It’s located at 5129 S. Solberg Ave.
Members of GreatLIFE Golf & Fitness enjoy several discounts at the trampoline park, including $10 Sky Fitness memberships.
GreatLIFE members also receive half-price admission on Tuesdays, a $3 discount on jump packages Wednesday through Friday, and one parent per child can jump free with a jump package Tuesday through Friday.
Sky Zone will mark its anniversary Friday, Feb. 9, with a grand reopening for the new attractions. It will include prizes and discounted food.
“We love owning Sky Zone and being part of the community,” Redd said. “That is why we do so many, many fundraisers and special events.”
Last year, Sky Zone donated more than $20,000 in jump passes and cash toward fundraisers.
