Jump and Relieve Some Stress: Hagerstown Sky Zone

If you’re looking to escape from college stresses, Sky Zone in Hagerstown, Md., may just be the place!

During the last week of January, following a few months of construction, this indoor trampoline park finally opened in the local city. A mere 45 minutes away from campus, people of all ages are encouraged to check out this indoor trampoline park.

Patrons can participate for any amount of time they wish. Prices range from $11 for 30 minutes to $23 for two hours. The assumption that this is just a place to jump on trampolines would be incorrect considering Sky Zone offers other activities such as basketball trampolining, dodgeball, rock-wall climbing, and jumping into a foam pit.

Unless you are extremely active, an hour is more than enough time for jumping. Half an hour is even a fair amount of time. Sky Zone also accommodates birthday parties or special events, such as ‘skyrobics’ (sky/jumping aerobics).

While Sky Zone offers an upbeat environment, participants are required to fill out a waiver form before jumping. However, unless feeling daring, there is no need to fret; this is just a precaution. Sky Zone offers a safe environment for all ages. Employees are also at each station to make sure participants are organized and safe.

The establishment has a concession stand, offering snack foods such as pretzels and icees. Depending on the day of the week, the amount of patrons vary. Saturday afternoons, expect it to be packed. While it is a tad overwhelming when the place is packed, it still offers a lot of fun.

Sky Zone is open every day of the week with the hours varying depending on scheduled events and reservations. Hours are typically as follows: Mon-Thurs, 3-8 p.m., Friday, 2-10:30 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
