The trampoline park is split into several different areas, with each designed for a different demographic. A mesh wall encloses the kids zone, which is only for kids shorter than 46 inches. Throughout the rest of Geronimo’s, kids can jump off trampoline walls, play dodge ball in an enclosed bouncy court, use battering rams to fight on the battle beam, shoot hoops in the basketball court, or sink into a massive bag filled with air. At 11,000 square feet, the jumping area alone is about the size of two and a half NBA basketball courts.
The show features acts like the Russian Swing, where acrobats do impressive high jumps as they are tossed from one large floor-mounted swing to another; the Russian High Bar, which shows gymnasts defying gravity; the Aerial Cube, where artists execute an aerial tango of sorts on a silver cube structure in an amazing display of flexibility; Hoop Diving, an act showing performers diving, jumping, twisting and somersaulting through and over stacked hoops; the Trampoline Wall, a staple circus act that is also an extreme sport in itself where gymnasts bounce on trampolines to almost literally walk on walls; and many others.
Reddit has alerted us to a “New Extreme Sport” called “Trampoline Wall,” an odd mix of trampoline and parkour, and this dude’s demo tape is truly mesmerizing. The jumping-on-a-flagpole business seems like the most dangerous thing, like, ever.
In the fall, a gala event will bring the best trampoline wall athletes in Canada together. Roberge hopes it will build interest to get the sport into the 2013 X Games.
