Urban Air Trampoline Park To Open In Three Months

Urban Air Trampoline Park To Open In Three Months

In spite of heavy rain, construction continued today on the Urban Air Trampoline Park in Wichita Falls.

However, in the future, the weather won't stop Texomans from bouncing over to Kemp Boulevard.

"We need more indoor activities for people to do stuff, Wichita Falls Chamber of Commerce CEO Henry Florsheim explained, "when it's 105° out, or when it's snowing or raining. So this is going to fill a gap that we did not have filled before."

Urban Air won't just help Texomans dodge a rainy day. It will help improve a neglected neighborhood.

"In an area like this, past Kell, you're encroaching on the areas that haven't seen the attention that others have. It helps us, block by block, get better, Florsheim said.

The actual trampolines are being constructed in Plano, at the same time as the building in Wichita Falls is being built.

"Now we're going go in on Monday and start the process of installing the business," Managing Partner of the Wichita Falls Urban Air Trampoline Park Colby Cates said.

The facility will have trampoline basketball, dodgeball, a foam pit, and a ninja warrior course.

The Wichita Falls location is the only one to include a 12-foot high mezzanine level, which crews were working on earlier today.

"It's going give us a unique view of the entire park as well as provide additional floor space for party tables," Cates said.

Urban Air is expected to hire around 50 high school and college students as part time employees.

As for customers, the first hour of bouncing will cost $12, with the second hour costing $8.

Cates said he's excited for the community to see the vision to two local Texomans come to life.
