GRANTS PASS, Ore. — Kids of all ages are bouncing off the walls again at Urban Monkey an indoor play area. But just a few months ago, the inside of this facility looked much different.

One student who was jumping landed the wrong way and he ended up paralyzed. Partially because of that accident, Urban Monkey then changed its facility.

Urban Monkey took out all of the trampolines. It’s now an indoor soft play center. Owner of Urban Monkey says they are not at fault for the accident.

Urban Monkey is planning to expand its center in the next couple of months. But visitors can check out some of the new additions on Saturday at 10 a.m. for the grand re-opening.
