In approximately 2005 trampoline parks reemerged with Sky Zone and Sky High leading the way. With history repeating itself, trampoline park deaths and injuries returned. As Sky Zone and other trampoline parks added locations, the number of persons ending up in ERs and being admitted to hospitals soared. So much so, that multiple doctor’s groups around the world have taken notice and published injury studies to raise the alarm that trampoline parks are dangerous.
There are close to a 1,000 trampoline parks in the U.S. with new locations opening all the time. The names may differ, but the hidden dangers are present in every trampoline park. Deaths and injuries have not prompted trampoline parks to make themselves safer. It would be a start if trampoline parks set a minimum age of seven (7) years old, ban flips, separate the trampolines, and offer qualified skill assessment, progressive instruction, and supervision. Trampoline parks have rejected these suggestions because it would hurt revenue. Even worse, as trampoline parks evolve, they put aside safety concerns and compete for customers by introducing more and more attractions, such as performance trampolines, dodgeball, basketball dunk, basketball courts, climbing walls, zip lines, rotating beams, foam pits, air bags, warp walls, ninja courses and the like, which crowd the trampoline beds, distract the jumper from landing safely, or require advanced maneuvers, causing deaths and injuries to climb at an even faster rate.
