Skyzone is planning a Hoover location, which will look similar on the inside to this location in Kennesaw, Georgia.
When David Van Vurst and his family visited Hoover for his daughter’s soccer tournament, he realized it would be a perfect location to open his second Skyzone franchise.
Van Vurst and his wife have owned the Kennesaw, Georgia, location for three years and are excited to expand to Alabama.
“The south side of Birmingham is where we were looking, and it just so happened the Staples merger came together and we ended up with that location,” he said.
The Hoover Skyzone location will be 25,000 square feet, substantially larger than other trampoline arenas in the Birmingham area. They also focus on safety, and have separated areas for different ages.
“We have general basic rules we follow,” Van Vurst said. “We have a lot of size separation. It’s never a free for all at our parks.”
In addition to open jump time, Skyzone will feature birthday party packages, exercise programs such as Skyfitness and Skyrobics, toddler time, jumpapalooza and sky camp. The entire facility can also be rented for small or large groups. Skyzone also helps give back to the community, and is available for hosting fundraisers.
Skyzone features contests such as Dodgeball championships, in which the winner goes to the national tournament in Las Vegas, and Skyslam dunk contests.
The company first opened in 2004 and has since opened over 100 parks across the United States, Canada, Mexico, Australia and Saudi Arabia.
Van Vurst expects the park to open in late August or early September.
