Our kids are on spring break next week and some of us, especially if you’re a stay-at-home-mom are super happy because we don’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn to take those rascals to school, while others are already getting a headache thinking about having to deal with those rascals 24/7 all over again. I’m just happy for sleep, so I’ll deal with the tantrums and tears! Many families are going away to enjoy weather that isn’t this crazy NYC weather, while others (us) are staying local. Those that are staying local for Spring break- and even after you come back from vacation should check out a MUST-GO to place–
Last weekend, we were invited to a fun spot we’ve had our eye on for quite some time– Sky Zone. It’s a trampoline spot, but it’s so much more than that!
Sky Zone is more than you could’ve imagined
We ended up at the Deer Park,Sky Zone location and after the industrial scenery (scary at first, but beautiful) that our Google maps took us through we made it to our destination. The place is huge, clean and best part is that it’s an open-space where you can roam around from trampoline pit to another trampoline pit and not be constricted to one place for a certain amount of time.
We decided to go to the Saturday morning event, which was Toddler time– ages 5 and under can enjoy exclusive unlimited jump time for just $10 during the certain days/times listed. This whole time I thought Ziana, especially Gunner would be too young, but to have a place that is specific for toddlers during a certain time is beyond thoughtful. Both the kids loved it as you can see in the vlog. We were also able to jump and have fun alongside them during and even after the “Toddler Time” session was over. We moved from that specific pit to the other pits; infant pits, foam zone where you can jump and land on foam squares, play some basketball while jumping on the trampoline and dunk hard, and more freestyle jump.
They have really cool events too
I really wish they were closer because they have something called Skyfit- a low-impact, healthy fun that combines calisthenics, core exercises and strength-building aerobics. I didn’t do that work out, but jumping during freestyle/toddler time made my body ache during and after, so I can only imagine the workout class!
They have dodgeball night and championships! I never was any good at dodgeball, but that’s so much fun I actually want to play just to get knocked down. There’s a volleyball night, which I would probably rock at because I was a volleyball player– many years ago. And my favorite– GLOW NIGHT! I’m a sucker for glow-in-the-dark things and apparently, they are too! Lasers, music and blacklight transform the whole park and even your party into a crazy jumping dance club.
Sky Zone is also all about giving back, which I love! On the first Monday of every month they will open from 3pm – 6pm for jumpers with special needs. Welcoming adults and children with any and all special needs to join us. We will dial down the noise, increase the staff ratio and limit the capacity for the enjoyment of special guests. Wednesday’s they open up their doors to those who protect us (policemen/firemen) and their children to jump free. In addition to that they gift the officers tickets to give away to well-deserving children who need a budge to do better. Sky Zone works with a 5th grade class who wins free tickets if they get good grades–
Don’t forget to enter the giveaway and experience it yourself!
Looking into Sky Zone more we were surprised that it just wasn’t a Monday through Sunday, 10-10PM kind of place, but a place with special events. The only way to understand it is to come experience it for yourself. And, oh wait, is this giveaway time? I think so! Win a four pack to either a FREE JUMP, SKYFIT event, TODDLER TIME, DODGEBALL NIGHT or GLOW NIGHT only in the NY areas; Deer Park and Mt Sinai! Enter below
