Sky Zone to open in Hoover, will be fourth trampoline park in Birmingham area
 
A new trampoline park company will open its first location in the Birmingham area in Hoover, giving metro-area residents four parks to choose from.
 
Sky Zone Trampoline Park will open its first Birmingham-area location this fall at 1694 Montgomery Highway in a former Staples. Franchisee David Vanvurst said he expects construction to start in April.
 
Vanvurst already operates a Sky Zone in Kennesaw, Georgia. He starting thinking about opening a location in Birmingham when he came into the city for a soccer tournament.
 
“I loved the city and I thought it would be a great place to open the territory,” Vanvurst said.
 
The park will be 25,000 square feet and have dodgeball, basketball hoops of three different heights, a foam pit and more. It’ll also hold dodgeball tournaments, and the winner gets invited to the Sky Zone’s corporate annual Ultimate Dodgeball Championships in Las Vegas. Vanvurst’s Kennesaw team placed eighth last year.
 
Two more Sky Zones are also planned for Alabama – Florence and Huntsville.
 
Earlier this month, Urban Air Trampoline Park announced it would open its first Birmingham location at 800 Green Springs Highway in the spring. Steel City Jump Park opened in Crestwood at the end of 2014, after AirWalk Trampoline Arena off of U.S. 280 opened in 2013.
 
Vanvurst said he’s not worried about competition. Sky Zone places a higher emphasis on safety than most other parks, he said, so that will make it especially attractive to area parents. Sky Zone follows International Association for Trampoline Park standards, and has several safety monitors to make sure jumpers follow rules like one person per trampoline.
 
“We proactively try to prevent people from doing things they shouldn’t do,” Vanvurst said. “I know that will be a concern for a lot of parents.”
