Trampoline park lets Calgarians catch big air

Calgary’s Extreme Air Park is a 3,900-square metre trampoline park that offers trampoline dodgeball, basketball and half-pipe as well as the largest foam pit in North America.

The park opened in April and is the largest indoor trampoline park in Canada.

Dustin Armeneau, co-owner of the park, said each feature of the facility was designed to highlight a “cool aspect of trampolines.”

“For myself, I’ve always wanted to be able to do dunks, so we decided we were going to rig up trampolines with dunkable nets,” he said.

The park sees a lot of gymnasts, parkour (obstacle course-like training) enthusiasts and couples on dates, and Armeneau said dodgeball is one of the more popular options.

“We get people between the ages of 15 and 50 that play dodgeball,” he said. “I’m constantly blown away when parents come to drop off their kids and they actually go to jump themselves.”

Reservations or drop-ins are welcome at the Extreme Air Park, and the facility has a party room where birthday parties can be booked for a discounted rate.
