The endless bouncy expanses of trampoline parks are well-loved by Puget Sound-area parents for letting their littles get their wiggles out year-round. But if you’ve ever looked at your bouncing youngsters with a twinge of envy and thought of joining in — well, now’s your chance! These soaring spots offer plenty of room for big and little jumpers alike, along with ball games, climbers, obstacle courses and foam pits — just join in and jump away! Bonus: Bouncing is heart-healthy exercise and a fantastic calorie burner, so add it to your New Year’s cardio resolution! Note that most parks require a waiver, so arrive early or check in online before you go to save time.
Formerly Flying Circus, Defy Seattle remains a popular and active spot, offering plenty of bounce room with a groovy ninja challenge course, plus dodgeball, trapeze, aerial silks and more!
