Sky High Sports Near AVA Newport: Where Bouncing Off the Walls is Encouraged

If the kids seem to be bouncing off the walls at AVA Newport, take them to Sky High Sports where they can literally bounce off the walls. In fact, jumping off of the floors and walls, which are made of trampolines, is encouraged at this Costa Mesa attraction. Kids can get active, release energy, and have fun at this bouncy playground.

You could always swing by with the kids during open jump sessions or you could let Sky High host your next birthday party or fundraising event. Sky High Sports isn't just for kids, though. Adults can hold a teambuilding event here or play a dodgeball game on the trampolines. Check out the 50-minute AlRobics class, a low-impact, fat-burning workout session that takes place on the trampolines.

There's a snack bar on-site so break for lunch and enjoy wings, soft pretzels, pizza, or churros as well as drinks like tea and Naked Juice.
