MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – If you're looking to get the jump on some family fun this year, good news: a trampoline park is coming to downtown Myrtle Beach in the spring.
Rockin'' Jump is bringing "Competition and Fitness disguised as Fun" to a 23,000 square foot location at 2200 N. Oak Street, located across from the Myrtle Beach Convention Center and Sports center, alongside the Children's Museum of South Carolina, according to a news release from the company.
The fun activities include: a large open jump area, two trampoline dodge ball courts, a Slam Dunk zone, a jousting challenge, a Stunt Bag area and rock climbing walls, the release states. It will also be one of the first Rockin'' Jump locations to offer a new obstacle course.
"Rockin'' Jump's motto of 'clean safe fun' creates an atmosphere that allows adults and kids to focus on playing, while burning up to 1000 calories an hour," said Chrissy Mays, who owns and operates the local franchise along with her husband Steve Mays and long-time resident Mike Shank . "We're excited to bring this healthy entertainment park to Myrtle Beach."
The complex will offer private party rooms, seating and gathering areas, lockers, free Wi-Fi, TVs and a full service café.
Locals, the owners are also in talks with trainers about holding fitness classes for anyone looking for a unique way to exercise.
"We're going to bring fitness to the area, and focus on that, and a healthy lifestyle," Owner of Rockin'' Jump Chrissy Mays said. "And that is something we really want to promote within the community."
To get down to it, the owners say they're getting Myrtle Beach on the map with a trend that people travel the state for.
"We know that our surrounding areas- Charleston and Wilmington and Columbia have them, so we know there is a need for that here, there is a want," Mays said. "There is lots of parents we know that drive all the way to those areas for those birthday parties. Why can't people come to Myrtle Beach and do the same thing?"
Representatives say Rockin'' Jump has become famous for its birthday parties, and can handle everything from decorations to food service. The complexes offer a wide variety of activities for all age groups, both day and night.
"We expect to announce an official grand opening date soon," Mays said. "We hope everyone will come visit and jump with us."
Another indoor trampoline park, the Extreme Trampoline Sports Center, is scheduled to open in February 2016 at 568 George Bishop Parkway in the Sports Mall.
