NEAR WEST SIDE — Chicago parents no longer need to trek to the ‘burbs for kids’ trampoline birthday parties.
Altitude Trampoline Park at 404 N. Armour St. opens Monday, bringing Chicago its first indoor trampoline, rock wall and trapeze facility.
The new trampoline park is owned by franchisee Kevin Kolb, a Bucktown parent who with two business partners have six kids combined, ranging in age from 6-months-old to teens.
“Having young kids, and going to these birthday parties in the suburbs, we saw the need for a trampoline park in the city for all the families who’ve chosen to stay in the city,” Kolb told Block Club Chicago.
The new trampoline facility offers a wide range of activities including wipe-out, trampoline basketball, dodgeball and foam pits. The indoor park also offers an area for toddlers and a lounge for adults.
Admission for single jumpers starts at $17.95 for children 6 and over and adults. Children under 6 can jump for $12.95.
The venue also offers group rates — including a $229 birthday party for groups of 10 — at the space. For $17.95, children and adults can explore the multi-activity facility. Tickets can be purchased here.
“We are excited to partner with Altitude to bring Chicago its first and only indoor trampoline park,” partner Amanda Elman-Kolb said in a statement. “Raising a family in Chicago showed us the need for another community-focused activity center in the city that would suit a growing family’s interests.”
To introduce the new indoor park to the neighborhood, Altitude will host an all-day open house on Jan. 13, featuring toddler music time, local food vendors and more fun.
Texas-based Altitude Trampoline Park opened their first location in 2012, before expanding domestically and internationally. They operate two other indoor parks in the suburbs.
The indoor park is open 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 10 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday.
