This week we found ourselves in Ogden at an amazing new trampoline park. We’ve been to a few other places to jump, but this one was our new favorite mainly because there was so much more to do than simply jump on trampolines. Fly High Adventure Park even has “Adventure” in its name, instead of just being a trampoline park.
First of all, the size of Fly High is massive. There are two levels and both have a lot of things to do. Our boys’ favorite activity downstairs was dodgeball. This gave them the opportunity to throw balls at each other while jumping on trampolines. In the middle of each side is a low hill, and the boys spent nearly an hour jumping and throwing, jumping and throwing.
There is also a huge swivel arm that swings across twelve individual trampolines. The arm is large and padded, so if you don’t time your jump correctly it will wipe you out. Even our youngest liked jumping the arm or ducking under it if that seemed to work better. Still, he was knocked down more than once, but each time he bounced right back up with a smile on his face.
There are a lot of areas to run and jump, including angled trampolines and large pillow pits. One gigantic pillow pad even allows you to jump down from the upper level. Our boys weren’t quite big enough to do much on the obstacle course, which required jumping, hanging, and swinging from bar to bar.
Upstairs there are some fun things, too. We liked the upstairs obstacle course, which was more kid friendly. It has a net that keeps you from falling too far and has you walking on narrow ledges, hopping from spot to spot, and clinging to ropes with platforms.
We also had our first opportunity to try virtual reality. There were two games: the kids opted to shoot aliens while Dad took on zombies. It’s like a video game all around you. Best of all, our 6 year-old was also allowed to participate. We were surprised at how well he shot down alien attackers while blocking with his “shield.” Virtual Reality is an extra cost in addition to your admission fee. Our boys said this was their favorite part of the park!
Fly High Adventure Park is our favorite trampoline park because it is so much more than a trampoline park. There is entertainment and fun for everyone. This place is great for all ages.
Fly High Adventure Park is located at 3624 South 250 West Ogden.
