Jumpin’ Around

As I continue further and further into my twenties, I’ve come to the realization that going to the clubs every weekend isn’t as fun as it used to be – and my friends have noticed this too. As we’ve gotten older, we’ve started looking for new and unique ways to celebrate our birthdays, many trying as hard as possible to avoid the clubs on King Street. It seems that our ‘new and unique’ search has more or less resulted in us celebrating in ways we missed out on as kids, or even just reliving them.

This past weekend, my cousin Rob celebrated his 27th birthday. For this very special occasion, we ditched the club and headed to Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park. It was awesome. I joined Rob and 18 of his closest friends to bounce around for an hour of fun, followed by a party room with pizza, unlimited fountain drinks and a very special The Nightmare Before Christmas (Rob’s favourite movie)-themed cake!

And this wasn’t your average trampoline fun, there was a twist! Not only did we bounce around for the hour, but we played dodge ball while doing it. Although we continued to rotate our teams, trampoline dodge ball ended up becoming quite competitive – with people leaving the court dripping in sweat.

Overall, a great time was had by all. If you’re looking for something fun and active for an upcoming event, perhaps even a team builder, I would strongly recommend this venue.

Following trampoline dodge ball a few of us headed to a friends condo to catch up and play Cards Against Humanity. A successful night, without the post-birthday hangover.
