Thinking about planning a birthday party where the kids will be jumping for joy – take them to a trampoline park. Before loading up a bunch of kids in the backseat and heading to the nearest trampoline park you should first visit the facility yourself. Does the facility appear to be clean? Do you observe the staff actively supervising activities?
Ask about cleaning products and procedures used. If EPA registered hospital grade disinfectants and anti-micorbials are used you can avoid the risk of strange infections. After you visit several facilities select the cleanest and best supervised.
You can also check how other customers rate the operation on Websites such as Yelp. Here are some you want to avoid: “When the kids came out, one said that dust flew when she jumped in. Out of 4 kids, three came out of it coughing and with runny noses. Two who had asthma later had difficulty breathing.” “The place is still a total dive, plays seriously explicit music and allows abusive customers to harass others.”
Don’t forget before you take the kids to a trampoline center do your homework; visit several centers - select the cleanest and best supervised. For additional information on trampoline center health and safety click of the hyperlinks below.
