Indoor trampoline franchise bounces into market
A new "extreme fun center" based around an indoor trampoline system has opened its doors in the area.
Rebounderz, a indoor trampoline franchise, opened yesterday in Jenison, at 7500 Cottonwood Dr., its first location in West Michigan and the state.
Rebounderz is housed inside a 54,000-square-foot facility.
The center features a number of offerings: a 56-bed "combo jumper"; a super dodgeball jumper; Rebounderz JumpXtreme Tower; four-lane basketball slam; six-lane foam pit — the first of its kind in a Rebounderz location; jump pillow and inflatable slide for younger jumpers; largest arcade of any Rebounderz location,which includes human foosball, fast-pitch baseball, soccer and hockey; and a cafe.
The Jenison location will also feature a custom-designed ninja warrior course and a ninja warrior training course, which are slated to open in the fall.
Customers rent time at Rebounderz.
The cost is $10 for 30 minutes, $16 for 60 minutes, $20 for 90 minutes and $10 for each additional hour.
Bouncers must also wear a pair of Rebounderz grip socks, which can be purchased for $2 and are reusable.
The center also offers specials.
Indoor trampoline franchise
The first Rebounderz opened in Longwood, Florida in 2008.
Founded by fathers Mark Gurley and Al Palladino, Rebounderz grew out of a desire to create a physical activity center for kids.
Gurley designed a trampoline system with a strict focus on creating the safest possible environment, which the pair then patented.
The Jenison location is the 11th Rebounderz to open in the U.S. The franchise also serves a location in Panama City, Panama.
