We’ve been eagerly awaiting the opening of Sky Zone Kalamazoo and were excited when we finally had a chance to check it out.


Sky Zone Trampoline Park officially opened its doors in Portage November 18, 2014. Located just south of I-94 on 5103 Portage Road in Portage, Sky Zone is a 25,000-square-foot facility filled to the brim with wall to wall trampolines. It is a trampoline extravaganza!

On our first visit to Sky Zone Kalamazoo we arrived with friends and chose the 60-minute open jump. Jump times range from 30 minutes to 120 minutes. The jump times keep the flow of traffic on the trampolines free from traffic jams and excessive lines.

We did have to purchase special socks at Sky Zone to provide better traction (regular socks and street shoes are not permitted), which cost $1 a pair. Once you purchase them, you may bring them back on your return visits.


My six year old son and his friend immediatley headed straight for the Main Court. Bouncing off the walls takes on a whole new meaning at Sky Zone, yes, even the walls are made out of trampolines. A perfect cure for cabin fever!

To keep it safe, the trampolines are sectioned off and only one jumper is allowed per square or rectangle. There are plenty of staff members on hand to make sure that the rules are followed to ensure that all kids have a good time. It obvious that safety is a top priority. This also means that you will not be able to jump right next to your younger kids.


After about 40 minutes of free jump time, the boys needed a little break (talk about a workout!), so we headed to the tables for some water and a snack. They do have snacks and drinks available at the Sky Cafe. I even noticed that they have pizza available for purchase.

Foam Pit

One of my son’s favorites was the Foam Pit. Imagine bouncing off of a trampoline into a pit filled with foam blocks! Definitely fun, but a little challenging (especially for the adults) to get out of the foam pit.


Sky Slam Basketball Dunk Courts

We continued our Sky Zone journey at the Sky Slam Basketball Dunk Courts. My son (who has limited basketball ability) felt like LeBron James with his almost slam-dunking and net touching ability.


Ultimate Dodgeball Court

They has have an Ultimate Dodgeball Court. We did’t try it on our two visits to Sky Zone Kalamazoo, but would definitely try it on our next stop out.

Tips From Parent

  • Buy your tickets online for the time that you want to go. This ensures that you’ll be able to get the Open Jump time slot that you want. There is a maximum capacity of 126 jumpers at one time.
  • Fill out your waiver online ahead of time, too. The waiver needs to be completed by a parent or guardian. This is especially important to do if you’re sending your kids with someone other than yourself i.e. friends, caregiver, or grandparent.
  • Check out one of their special programs for kids of various ages. Toddler Time, Jumpapaloozaand SkyJam are all worth checking out if your child falls within the appropriate age category.

Thumbs Up

We give Sky Zone Kalamazoo a “thumbs-up” for a great indoor play place and a great addition to our greater Kalamazoo area.

This is definitely a place for kids of all ages and adults, too. My son had a good time on each of his visits there and I’ll be trying it on our next visit, too.

They also offer birthday party packages and will soon be offering SkyFitness which may be in our future.

    We love SkyZone because we know we can always count on a great time! The kids have a blast and it is a fun day for all. We would love to win a family pack, thank you!

    • hether February 2, 2015 at 11:53 pm

      Bouncing is fun and great exercise – I love it right along with my kids!

    • Jamie Prudom February 9, 2015 at 9:30 pm

      I would love to take my son here with a couple of his friends. I really do not get to spend much time with him lately because of my work schedule. I know he loves this place and goes often with his Dad and their family. I would enjoy being able to spend time with him doing something he loves that involves being active!!!

  2. Meghan Kennon February 2, 2015 at 7:10 am

    Skyzone is a place where our entire family can participate! It’s lots of fun and great exercise too! Love watching our two daughters smile as they jump around! Winning a family four pack would be awesome!

  3. Barbara mcgrath February 2, 2015 at 7:13 am

    the fun exercise makes this a great place.

  4. Sarah February 2, 2015 at 7:16 am

  8. Melanie Sage February 2, 2015 at 7:35 am

    Sky Zone is a great place for the entire family. With a teenager and 2 younger ones, it can be difficult to find activities everyone enjoys. It’s also a great place to get some exercise and burn off energy! My family would love to win passes!

  9. Sara February 2, 2015 at 7:44 am

    I have never been! I would love to try it out.

  11. Renee Muday February 2, 2015 at 8:33 am

    It’s freeing to jump as high as you can and feel like a kid again!!!!

  12. Jennifer G. February 2, 2015 at 9:15 am

    I love SkyZone Kalamazoo because it’s fun entertainment and exercise for the whole family. We’ve been twice with friends and extended family and plan to go soon to take my best friend and her daughter. It’s great to have a new choice in town for a fun family activity.

  13. Amanda February 2, 2015 at 9:21 am

    We’ve never been but are really excited to check it out!

  14. Stephanie February 2, 2015 at 9:40 am

    I love that I can take my 3 kids – ages 16, 10, and 8 – and everyone has a good time!! Its hard to find things to do that my teen and my younger kids will all enjoy and Sky Zone is always their first choice!! It gets them away from their phones and video games and up and moving – I love it!!

  15. jenn February 2, 2015 at 9:43 am

  30. Michelle Hostetler February 2, 2015 at 12:35 pm

    I love that it is a great way for the kids to burn off energy indoors. It is also well supervised for safety!

  31. mikayla schultzen February 2, 2015 at 12:44 pm

  46. Rachel February 4, 2015 at 9:59 pm

    my son attended a bday party at Sky Zone and constantly asks to go back!

  47. Laurie February 5, 2015 at 7:42 am

  48. Shannon M February 6, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    I think the best thing about SkyZone is the fact that they have something for everyone ranging from my 2 year old grandson to my 21 year old daughter, its truly a fun place for the entire family!

  49. Lindsey February 8, 2015 at 11:49 am

  54. Angie February 8, 2015 at 9:02 pm

  55. Glenn February 8, 2015 at 9:04 pm

    A great way to have fun inside!

  62. Tammy R. February 9, 2015 at 12:45 pm

    What we love most about SkyZone – Kalamazoo is that they’re are finally *in* Kalamazoo! We’ve been to the one in Grand Rapids, but haven’t yet been able to visit the new location so close to home. We love, love, love jumping! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  63. Mallory Bailey February 9, 2015 at 2:04 pm

    My 6 year old just had his birthday party there! He loves it, and all of it! An hour is never enough for him , and he has a new found love for dodge ball! We will be frequent visitors here for awhile to come 🙂

  64. Wendy February 9, 2015 at 2:13 pm

    I love how the kids can have fun and at the same time, get a great workout! The foam pit looks like fun too.

  65. Janelle February 9, 2015 at 3:24 pm

    i love that SkyZone is similar to a lock-in where you can just let your kids run if they are little. There are also tons of staff members to keep things controlled and safe. My sons favorite place is the foam pit as well. It is also nice that there are places for parents to be at each activity if they aren’t jumping.

  66. Jennifer Zimmer February 9, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    My son’s favorite thing about Sky Zone is the dodgeball!

  67. Sue February 9, 2015 at 5:35 pm

    My two sons are so excited that there’s a Sky Zone closer to home now. We have been to the one in Grand Rapids but it’s too far for a day trip. Sky Zone is a great outlet for their boundless energy and is great exercise!

  68. Cathie February 9, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    We love to play dodgeball there!

  69. Katherine S February 9, 2015 at 7:30 pm

    We have never been to Sky Zone. It looks like fun and I think my kids would burn off a lot of energy!

  70. Renee February 9, 2015 at 7:47 pm

    Anxiously awaiting for their sky fitness programs to start!

  71. Deana February 9, 2015 at 7:51 pm

    we have never been. So if we win tickets, we would be glad to share what we love most about skyzone.

  72. Jill February 10, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    We have not been yet, but are looking forward to trying it out! Winning tickets would be super exciting!

  73. Katie M. February 11, 2015 at 4:41 pm

    My 3 year old and 1 year old LOVE going to Skyzone! I love that they enjoy it, it burns off some energy, and can be enjoyed all year long!

  74. Beth Ogden February 12, 2015 at 2:25 pm

    My daughter LOVES to jump on my bed. I can’t imagine her excitement seeing all those trampolines!

  75. Kate Y. February 12, 2015 at 2:36 pm

    We haven’t been able to try it out yet, but are so anxious too! My 2.5 year old is a BUNDLE of energy… and is super into jumping right now… he will LOVE this place!

  76. Kelly February 12, 2015 at 2:37 pm

    We love to go and enjoy friends and family as we laugh and burn some energy!

  77. Nicole Tuesley February 12, 2015 at 2:44 pm

    we love Toddler time! Perfect for the whole family to blow off some steam!

  78. Tiffany February 12, 2015 at 2:55 pm

    Its a great place for the whole family to get out and enjoy when your feeling cabin fever coming on!

  79. Salina Johnson February 12, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    I love how it wears my boys out! They are ready for bedtime when we get home.

  80. Lisa Hansen February 12, 2015 at 5:31 pm

    We’ve never been to Sky Zone before! Sounds like it would be a lot of fun!!

  81. Kathleen February 13, 2015 at 10:53 am

    My family and I love SkyZone and it’s great exercise!

  82. Jennifer L February 16, 2015 at 7:22 pm

  92. Kathy Estes February 16, 2015 at 7:58 pm

    What’s not to love about Sky Zone Kalamazoo? An opportunity for the kids to jump to their hearts’ content, hours of exercise, and even some fun orange socks to keep them safe from slipping!

  93. Cait February 16, 2015 at 7:59 pm

    Getting a work out as a family to encourage enjoying exercise!

  94. Justina Crow February 16, 2015 at 8:09 pm
