My daughter and I attended a birthday party at Flight Trampoline Park. Given it was the weekend and this was the new place in town to check out, it was no surprise that at 1 pm this place was hopping.
What to Expect
If you opt for a birthday party at Flight, know that you will not have exclusive use of the facility. Flight is a big and spacious trampoline park with different jump rooms. During our jump, ages ranged from young children to adults. Rock music played at a moderate tone and plenty of staff surveyed the scene. If you hear the whistle blow, it’s for your safety, as jumpers cannot sit on the trampolines. Each attendee wore a sticker displaying the start and end jump time. They bounced from one area to the other. My daughter kept deviating from the group in search of the giant slide.

Flight has a party host that sets up and cleans up the party. There are 5 party rooms with one or more tables depending on the room chosen. We were in an upstairs room at a long, metal, picnic table. On the day of our visit, all of the rooms were reserved for parties. Each room contains a refrigerator to store drinks and a cake. You supply the food and beverages. Flight provides paper goods in primary colors, but you can bring your own. The party we attended was a Frozen themed party and they brought their own plates, cups, and napkins. I did see balloons in another party room. There is also a small counter to set up for food and a chalkboard with the name of the birthday child.
- Sign the waiver online before you come to Flight. We opted to take care of this upon arrival and waited in a long line to fill out the registration form which gave us our jump time.
- Arrive on time. We arrived to the party 10 minutes late and the group was already jumping on the trampolines. There was a crowd and the staff couldn’t find our name on the RSVP list. Since the parent of the birthday girl had the “tickets” to enter, we had to wait 15 minutes to be able to enter the jump zone. This caused some tears.
- Flight was out of stock on their socks, which cost an additional fee. Therefore, you jump barefoot. I cringed at the thought of letting my child run free, but then decided I needed to just “let it go.” However, I also found it odd that the employees walked on the trampolines wearing shoes.
- Expect a line for the bathroom. Both restrooms only have two stalls. There is no elevator in the building so in order to access the second floor party rooms and mini arcade, you will be walking up a flight of concrete stairs.
Booking a birthday party at Flight, is it worth it?
What I didn’t like was that the party host wasn’t really around for the duration of the event, particularly when in the room. The parents had to look for her to ask for supplies and the mother of the birthday girl had to go downstairs to get the pizza that was delivered to the building. Based on the amount of money to have a party here, I felt that Flight could do a better job in this area. However, all the children had a blast and it was obvious the birthday girl had a memorable 7th birthday!
