What is a Trampoline Park?
Trampoline parks are commercial entertainment facilities where visitors pay to have access to large spaces designed with floors, and oftentimes angled walls, that are primarily (contrived of) built-in trampolines. Along with simply jumping on the trampolines, most facilities also offer additional activities such as foam pits to jump in, basketball hoops to play on, and even dodgeball arenas for team dodgeball matches.
The popularity of these trampoline parks has grown exponentially over the past few years. Less than a decade ago, there were only three trampoline parks nationwide. Now there are more than 800. Trampoline parks have grown into a billion-dollar industry over the past few years. You likely have a trampoline park in your neighborhood or in a nearby community, and if you don’t, you can probably expect to see one soon.
While trampoline parks can be a fun activity for children, teens, and adults alike, the lack of oversight and state regulations has allowed for unsafe safety standards and dangerous parks that put visitors at risk of serious injury and even death. As a result, a number of trampoline park lawsuits have been filed on behalf of individuals who have suffered an injury as the result of a trampoline park accident. If you believe that you may qualify to participate in a trampoline park injury lawsuit, contact a trampoline park injury lawyer to discuss the details of the event and find out whether you have a credible case.
