Jumpstreet Indoor Trampoline Parks Across the Country Open Doors Just for Special Needs Families First Saturday of Every Month – Kicks off April 4, Start of Autism Awareness Month
To raise awareness for children with special needs, Jumpstreet Indoor Trampoline Parks nationwide will open their doors at 9 a.m. – an hour early – every first Saturday beginning April 4 so special families can enjoy an hour of play before the general public is admitted at 10 a.m. April marks National Autism Awareness Month.
“Families have shared with us that their children with developmental challenges feel more confident in their play when the park is less crowded,” says Jumpstreet COO Mark Goldman. “We want all our young guests to have fun without interruption or judgment from others who may be unaware or may not understand children with different abilities.”
Jumpstreet’s “Special Family Saturdays” also provide an exclusive reduced rate of $8 for a two-hour “all access pass” for children 4 and older. The regular price for the general public is $21 for the same package. Children 3 years and younger enjoy two hours of play for $4. An “all access pass” allows guests to enjoy additional attractions at each location such as the mechanical bull, a foam pit, an inter-tube slide, walking sticks and other unique activities at Jumpstreet.
Families with special needs children can enjoy the VIP treatment on the first Saturday at Jumpstreet’s 15 locations: Chandler and Glendale, AZ, Greenwood Village, Lakewood and Littleton, CO, Lawrenceville, GA, Franklin, Goodlettsville and Murfreesboro, TN and Allen, Cedar Park, Colleyville, Dallas, Katy and Plano, TX. “We are a family-owned business and take pride in reaching out to the communities we serve,” Goldman states. “Our friendly staff is looking forward to meeting new families and their children.”
The Colorado-based company has 15 locations in the United States and continues as a stand out among competitors for its safety-conscious corporate culture while offering fun and exhilarating attractions families love. Jumpstreet was founded in 2007, with a mission to provide families with a safe, reliable, exciting venue that encouraged physical activity in children and quality time among families and friends. For young children, jumping improves balance and gross-motor coordination. For teenagers, it’s a great way to burn off energy while practicing cheerleading or gymnastic-like maneuvers. Jumpstreet is also a very popular choice for hosting birthday parties and other celebrations. Companies also utilize Jumpstreet as a unique setting for a memorable team-building experience among coworkers, or adults can sign on to the free WiFi for some productive time while their children are having fun in a supervised environment.
