Countdown To Liftoff Underway at House of Air
Revolutionary Trampoline Park Set to Open on September 15, 2010.
With exactly one week until the official opening of their ground-breaking trampoline park, owners Paul McGeehan and Dave Schaeffer are thrilled to begin counting down to the day they have long dreamed of. Beginning on Wednesday, September 15, people of all ages and ability levels will be able to take flight at House of Air, which is located at the western edge of San Francisco's Crissy Field.
McGeehan and Schaeffer are also excited to announce that, beginning on Friday, September 17 and continuing all weekend, the venue will be staging a Grand Opening Celebration. The event will feature demonstrations from experienced flyers, a live DJ, food and drinks, and other exciting details that will be announced soon. "We can't believe we're only a week away from opening," said Schaeffer. "We encourage anyone and everyone to come get a firsthand look at this amazing space."
"House of Air was designed to appeal to everyone," added McGeehan. "Flyers will be able to soar on any of House of Air's multiple trampoline structures, each of which were created to fulfill a different thrill."
The Matrix, House of Air's main trampoline structure, consists of 42 conjoined trampolines. This enormous and awe-inspiring trampoline floor - larger than a regulation sized basketball court - is surrounded on all sides by trampoline walls set at angles to the floor, allowing flyers maximum uninterrupted bounce space while providing maximum levels of safety.
The 2X Bowl, located within the north end of The Matrix, is a freestyle trampoline concept modeled after skateboard park designs. Geared toward action sport enthusiasts, it includes two three-sided bowls separated by a low wall called a spine. The 2X Bowl is a House of Air exclusive, an innovative and ground-breaking concept never before seen at any type of recreational facility.
The Colosseum, which was created by joining 22 trampolines and trampoline walls, will be used for organized sports such as trampoline dodgeball and basketball.
The Training Ground, booked by appointment or group class only, is performance-based training for Flyers to improve aerial awareness, acuity, and ability. Top gymnasts, board sport specialists, and professional athletes will offer classes to improve skills for various sports, including gymnastics, snowboarding, skiing, wakeboarding, skateboarding and kite boarding, giving athletes a safe way to practice and create new aerial maneuvers. Safety harnesses will be used on three competition-grade trampolines and Flyers will be able to reach extreme heights on the one-of-a-kind, custom-built, octagon-shaped center trampoline.
Finally, the Air Junior Bounce House is an inflatable bounce house designed for children three to six years of age. Double slides and climbing walls elevate the bounce experience. "Air Traffic Controllers," or safety managers, will supervise the area at all times.
House of Air is proud to offer this wide variety of trampoline structures and programs for walk-in guests, organized children's and adult classes, "Air Conditioning" fitness programs, birthday parties, and corporate events. With activities like open trampoline jump time, aerial trampoline training, and trampoline dodgeball and basketball, the heretofore flightless will be able to reach amazing heights.
House of Air is located at 926 Mason Street at West Crissy Field in the Presidio of San Francisco. Prices start at $14 per hour for open trampoline jump time; each additional hour is $10. House of Air will be open Monday - Thursday, 10 a.m. - 10 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m. - 11 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. - 11 p.m. and Sunday, 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. House of Air will also be open for fitness classes at 6 a.m. and 7 a.m. daily.
