Greenfield — A spring opening is in the works for the Sky Zone Trampoline Park that recently won city approval to open at 4940 S. 76th St., where an Office Depot used to be.
Sky Zone's plan is to offer trampoline fun in the form of freestyle open jumping and suc activities as slam dunking from a trampoline, bouncing up to hoops, fitness classes and the foam zone where patrons dive off heights to land softly in foam.
Sky Zone Greenfield will introduce attractions new to the Sky Zone chain, including a state-of-the-art Ninja Warrior Course, a challenge zone that includes jousting pits and an aerial ladder, and a climbing wall. The park will also be one of the few trampoline parks in the world to have fusion dodgeball, a new take on ultimate dodgeball that uses a pad-less trampoline court system, according to a news release about the facility.
Sky Zone will be for adults and children who come individually and in groups. Sky Zones have welcomed business groups seeking corporate team building, children's birthday parties and all sorts of groups looking for a unique outing.
Mark Glazer, an owner, said construction would start soon on the Sky Zone. The former Office Depot building is ideal for the facility, he said.
Everybody can jump with their own styles on the trampolines at Sky Zones. Greenfield recently cleared the way for a Sky Zone to open in the former Office Depot location on 76th Street.
"It's very advantageous," he said, in terms of having a tall ceiling and having support columns that are far enough apart. Sky Zones have been created in big box stores, in warehouses and even in industrial buildings, Glazer said.
The Office Depot building has been vacant for about two years. Greenfield Mayor Michael Neitzke said, "I'm excited about about having Office Depot filled, and the building substantially improved."
Sky Zone will enhance the commercial area that includes not only 76th Street leading to the Southridge Mall, but the 84South development of stores, restaurants, offices and residential under construction on Layton Avenue between 84th and 92nd streets, he said.
"I think the inclusion of activity-based uses in our 84South/Southridge commercial district only improves the vibrancy of the area," Neitzke said. "I remain very excited for other development activity in the future, as well."
You can dunk as you've never dunked before, getting a boost from a trampoline, as these dunkers demonstrate at a Sky Zone that is already in operation. Greenfield has cleared the way for a Greenfield Sky Zone.
“Sky Zone offers kids, teens and adults a one-of-a-kind experience, fusing fun and fitness while promoting a healthy lifestyle,” said Barbara Glazer, a franchise owner of Sky Zone Greenfield in the news release. “We’re looking forward to bringing our fourth park to southeastern Wisconsin, and providing the community with an active fun entertainment destination.”
