Sky Zone schedules openings for trampoline parks in Raleigh, Durham

Posted August 11
Updated August 12

— Sky Zone, which operates trampoline parks across the United States, Canada, Mexico and Australia, is getting ready to open two parks in the Triangle.

I've written about these before, but there are some updates on the openings.

The first, at 2101 Westinghouse Rd., in north Raleigh, is now scheduled to open Sept. 5, according to its Facebook page. A Durham location will open at the Shops at Northgate at 1720 Guess Rd. in Durham in December, according to a press release. The parks, which claim to be the world's first all-walled trampoline playing court, features wall-to-wall trampolines.

The Durham park will be on two floors with 23,000 square feet of trampolines, including a foam zone, basketball hoop, fitness classes, party rooms, concessions and a mezzanine-level cat walk.

Sky Zone is designed for all ages. A pre-sale kiosk located inside Northgate Mall will open this fall, the press release says.

As trampoline enthusiasts already know, the very popular Defy Gravity trampoline park opened its second location in Raleigh this summer.

    I agree, you wouldn't know it's an older mall from it's inside appearance.

    If downtown Durham can see the revitalization that it has in recent years, surely Northgate can improve with some redevelopment and positive outlook

    Northgate's owners have plenty of money, and have never hesitated to try to stay with current trends.........the surrounding environment is what is hurting it....not the shopping complex itself.

    Sounds like a good op for some head and facial injuries.

    Moved here in 1996. My first impression was... Why isn't there an Amusement park here? We are 4 hours away from the mountains, beach, and nearest large amusement park. With the number of college students here, they would make a Mint and give the rest of us something to do on the weekends besides mowing our lawns... I bet the Dix property would make a wonderful spot for a big attraction park.

    Nope, been here 30 years. If downtown Durham can see the revitalization that it has in recent years, surely Northgate can improve with some redevelopment and positive outlook.

    This will be a good addition to Northgate mall (Shops at Northgate) which has alot of future potential.

    LOL....I take it you are new to the area? Northgate is ONLY 54 years old......one of the original "shopping centers" in the area. Once was a great shopping destination, but not anymore.
