State College will get a little added bounce later this year.
Get Air Indoor Trampoline Park is planning to add a location at the Nittany Mall by winter, making it the third park the company will have in Pennsylvania, according to Ashton Goodell, the company’s creative director. The amusement and exercise company, which has locations in Harrisburg and King of Prussia, is also planning to build parks in Erie and Zelienople for a total of five locations in the state.
Goodell said the facility will be 16,000 square feet, with about 8,000 square feet devoted to space for trampolines. She estimated the location will have about 40 to 50 trampolines in total.
The park will be located in a space diagonal from Planet Fitness in the mall, Goodell added.
“We’ve really enjoyed being in Pennsylvania,” Goodell said. “We’ve found from our market research that there are obviously a lot of college students but also families looking for something to do, and what we think we can provide. Especially since in Pennsylvania you have long winters, people want to do active things but be indoors, and it’s kind of a rare venue where you can do that.”
Besides foam pits, dunk lanes and dodgeball courts, the State College site will also feature a new ninja-obstacle course. According to Goodell, the course will be an amateur version of those seen on the television show “American Ninja Warrior.”
The trampoline park is broken down into sections. Big Air is for children and adults 46 inches tall and over. Small Air is for shorter children. The Salt Lake City-based company also said it has accommodations for special needs guests.
Get Air, which hosts birthday parties, fitness classes and other events, has locations planned or built in 28 states and also has sites in Canada and Japan.
