My grand daughter starts Kindergarten tomorrow. This past weekend she and I had a party day to celebrate becoming a big kid. One of our stops was Rockin Jump in Modesto. It is an indoor trampoline gymnasium.
I think one of the things that I was most impressed about was how they handle the little ones. Children 6 and other have a segregated play area. They can go in the other areas, but bigger kids can not go into the 6 and under area.
When you enter, you first visit a waiver station. Then when you pay, if you did not bring your non-slip socks from last time, they sell you a pair for $2.
If you notice, my grand daughter has 2 wristbands on. All children 6 and under have an orange band. That is how they know if the child is allowed into the kids section of the trampolines.
The pink wristband signified what time she was paid until. When your time is up, there is an announcement that all parties with a whatever color band it is time to leave.
They do actually limit how many people can be in the gym at a time. They also allow you to reserve a time in advance if you like.
I gave my grand daughter the choice of mini golf or going to a trampoline place. She has never played mini golf and didn’t seem to interested. She has been to Rockin Jump before and her response was, “The JUMPING PLACE?”
Did you see her somersault at the end?
Then you leap, jump, flip or what ever else you would like to try. The stunt bag safely catches you.
You will notice how proactive they are on safety. Only one child can run down their trampoline and into the stunt bag at a time.
X-Beam. I knew as soon as I saw it that we would be visiting it. The pit is filled with foam blocks and has a balance beam in the center. At gymnastics, they have a foam block pit and obviously balance beams.
The kids seemed to love it. It is so well padded. They learn balance and it strengthens their core
She scores at about 28 seconds!
Rock walls are the best!
The kids get harnessed in. There are 3 climbers at a time. The three sections have different difficulty levels. My grand daughter actually figured this out and was able to get the highest on the wall she has ever gone.
Rock walls are great. They learn how to plan their strategy and how to pause, reassess the situation and change their strategy.
If you remember yesterday’s post about the Hurricane Simulator, that is how she cooled off at the end of the day.
When we were done, I took her to Payless to buy some shoes for school. She asked to go to the McDonalds with the play area. By the time we got near it, she was sound asleep. Rockin Jump took all of her energy.
Here she is the next day wearing her Paw Patrol light up shoes!
Bart thinks he and I need to go here on date night! That sounds like a blast!!!
