Get ready to bounce all night at Jumpmasters Youth Lock-In

By on September 24, 2018

Youth ages 10 to 15 have the opportunity to bounce to their heart’s content at Jumpmasters all-night lock-in this Friday night.

From 9 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. on Saturday, participants can have the run of Jumpmasters trampoline park; bouncing in the open jump area, playing dodgeball, attempting the ninja warrior obstacle course, climbing the rock wall, knocking their friends off the battle beam, and practicing their backflips onto the giant airbag.

They will also have Fortnite and other games set up and a projector playing movies all night.

Everyone’s used to the old school lock-ins at a gym or a church, but we thought a lock-in at a trampoline park would be a lot more fun,” says owner Brent Johnson.

Like old school lock-ins, there will be games and activities running all night, including competitions on the battle beam and obstacle course and a dodgeball tournament.

Winners can expect gift cards and free jump passes.

“At the end of the day, we’re just trying to provide a unique, fun experience for the kids. Something they haven’t done before. And it’s a night without kids for Mom and Dad too,” says Johnson.

The event is a first for Jumpmasters, and Johnson hopes that if it goes well they can host many more like it, including lock-ins for private parties like youth groups or for different age groups.

They’ve already sold 45 tickets to this one and plan to cap the lock-in at 85 kids maximum, primarily for safety reasons.

“As a parent of three, safety is a big concern of mine,” says Johnson. “There will be separate rest areas for boys and girls. We will have 12 staff members present the entire time, including my wife and I.”

Tickets will be sold at the door, but parents who would like their jumper to participate are encouraged to reserve their slot early online and sign the waiver in advance as well.

Tickets are $30, which is less than what Jumpmasters usually charges for a day pass and includes pizza and drinks.

The only question that remains is, will the kids bounce all night or sack out?

“I think they’ll be up all night,” says Johnson. “I don’t know where they find the energy, but they do.”
