Jump Zone – Safety

Jump Zone is the place to come to have an out of this world experience. Your safety is very important to us. Trampolining is an inherently dangerous activity. It is important for participants to follow set rules, safety guidelines and to jump within their own ability. All guests are given a safety instruction and are supervised by referees while on the trampoline courts. We also monitor all activity with security cameras throughout the facility.

At Jump Zone we want all of our jumpers to leave our building happy and loaded with exciting stories to tell. With that said, we have gone to great lengths to reduce or eliminate some of the hazards associated with trampolines and continually are working to ensure a safe environment through superior structure, training, research, education and planning.

Please read the following rules before you arrive. Our goal is for you to have fun and to be safe.

  • Everyone who enters Jump Zone must have a signed waiver on file. If you are under 18 years of age, the waiver must be completed and signed by a Parent or Legal Guardian. There are NO exceptions to this policy.
  • Guests are required to wear Jump Zone grip socks, they are compulsory for safety purposes.
  • No belt buckles, clothing studs, key chains, or sharp objects on apparel. Remove everything from your pockets. Jump Zone provides lockers for you to secure your property.

  • No sitting or resting on the trampolines or pads. If you are tired, please exit the trampoline courts straight away.
  • No back flips on the trampolines.

Injuries

Based on one park in the US, the injury rate is 0.2%. This means 2 out of every 1,000 trampoline jumpers will get some type of injury. We count all injuries, even if we just hand out an ice pack. The vast majority of these injuries are minor. Very few are serious.

In order to understand the level of the injury rate, there must be a comparison to other physical activities that kids do on a regular basis. Below is a chart comparing the facility to other sports*.

Sport Injury Rate % Injuries/1,000
Baseball 1.7% 17
Softball 1.0% 10
Soccer 2.1% 21
Football 1.5% 15
