You’ll certainly get warm jumping, romping, and playing at Get Air Trampoline Park. This fun family entertainment center has thousands of feet of trampolines in an open space, so there’s room for everyone to jump and flip at the same time. Young kids 46 inches and shorter even get their own kiddie trampoline court.

Kids can burn off excess energy by playing trampoline dodgeball or soaring in the air and landing in the foam pit. They can also try slacklining, the fidget ladder, and slamball when you visit Get Air Trampoline Park. After a day playing on the trampolines, refuel at any of these healthy eateries around West Chester.
