Get Air Trampoline Park

Since Get Air, a new trampoline park in Brannon Crossing, opened it has been a popular place for high school students to go. It’s fun, reasonably priced, and it’s good exercise. It’s the perfect place to have fun with friends or family. It’s also a great place to go and pretend you’re a little kid again.

Get Air has over 8,000 feet of trampolines to jump on. They have pits of foam blocks that you can dive into and a tight rope or ladder you can climb to get across the pit.

There is also trampoline basketball jump where you can show off your skills. This includes a basketball goal so you can try to bounce as high as you can and dunk the ball. If basketball isn’t your thing, it’s fun to watch other people try bounce on the trampoline and dunk the ball.

My favorite part of the park is the constant trampoline dodgeball games going on. At first, I was reluctant to join, but after I won my first game I got really into it. Everyone meets in the middle with one foot on the purple line and when the referee blows their whistle everyone runs to the top of the trampoline hill, slaps the purple mat and begins to play. The rules are very similar to traditional dodgeball; the only difference is that you are on trampolines so you can bounce out of the way. And I’m not the only one who likes it.

“Dodgeball was too much fun. I was one of the biggest kids in there but it was still awesome,” said senior Anthony Kahly.

Even though Kahly was the “biggest kid” at age 17, that’s not always the case. When I went, there was a vast majority of ages ranging from 2-42. People of all ages can enjoy all the games they have. Even if you aren’t into jumping, there is a room that looks out over the whole gym so you can watch others, which is almost as fun.

Get Air is also a great place for high school students to find work. I saw several Dunbar students working while I was there.

“It’s a fun environment. They treat everybody good and we get a lot of compliments. People are happy that they put one here in Lexington,” said senior Maranda French, who works there.

Get Air admission prices are lower than you can jump on the trampolines. Jumping for one hour costs $12, while two hours costs $20.

Get Air is open Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 10 pm, Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 12 am, and Sunday from 11 am to 9 pm.

Though there’s plenty of time for fun, people interested in visiting Get Air should be aware of the safety concerns.

“It was really fun but also really crowded and almost dangerous,” said junior Sabrina Bernardo.

Before you go get some air, make sure you have your parents fill out the online safety waiver if you are under 18. If you are 18 or older you can fill out the waiver yourself, but I recommend doing it before you go so you can get in right away.

When I went, we waited in line for about 45 minutes but it was definitely worth the money. There is plenty to do and there is always some kind of activity going on. You will never have a dull moment; I am definitely planning on going again.
