MEDFORD, Ore. — A little bit of bounce is being brought to the Medford Center off of Biddle Road. Rogue Air, the first trampoline park in the Rogue Valley, is moving in and plans on opening its doors here in the near future.
The park will have seven trampoline areas including a trampoline basketball court, dodge ball area, and half-pipe. The park says its main focus is on safety. According to the American Academy for Pediatrics, 0.2% of kids ages 5-14 get injured every year from trampoline parks, but new regulations are being put in place by the American Society for Testing and Materials to make sure everyone is safe.
“It’s like an amusement park, and they want everyone to be safe and have a good time so they are trying to keep it consistent throughout the park… so if you go from one park to another it has the same style of netting padding and stuff like that, said Rogue Air manager, Mark Combs.
Rogue Air said it’s going above and beyond, and it’s taking extra safety measures to keep bouncers safe. Besides using safety netting and mats, rogue air makes each bouncer sign a waiver, and watch a safety video. It will also have workers placed at each trampoline to make sure bouncers are following the rules.
The Rogue Air trampoline park plans to open February 1.
