PITTSTON TWP. — Two years after opening, Sky Zone Trampoline Park is moving to a new location on Enterprise Way.
The indoor trampoline park is currently located at 525 Keystone Ave. in a building it shares with two other tenants. Owner/general manager Jeff Bowne said the new building will belong only to Sky Zone.
The new building will be 24,000 square feet which, according to Bowne, is 4,000 square feet more than the Keystone Avenue location.
“Our growth has been so great that we wanted more space to add additional attractions,” said Bowne. “The opportunity presented itself with what Mericle (Commercial Real Estate) wants to do in developing down there, and they wanted to develop a standalone building.”
The new building’s grand opening is slated for Oct. 1. Bowne said the business will close around Labor Day to start the moving process.
He also noted the new building will be more visible.
“We have great visibility off Interstate 81 just the way we situated it and I think there will be a good sight line from Oak Street,” he said.
Commonly known as Sky Zone Scranton, Bowne said when the business is relocated, the brand will become Sky Zone Pittston, as there is no Scranton location.
“That created more confusion here than I would have expected,” he said. “When we bought the franchise, we didn’t know what building we would be in and it was branded as Sky Zone Scranton.”
The new location will also call for more employees, as Bowne expects a 15 percent increase to the current 70 employees.
Sky Zone Trampoline Park offers activities and features such as open jump, two dodgeball courts, a SkySlam court, SkyRobics fitness classes, Ultimate Dodgeball and the Foam Zone.
Those activities will remain and features such as challenge courses, rope climbs and more will be added.
“Our Ultimate Dodgeball Championship is our big thing and our sky fitness classes are big in helping to burn off calories,” he said. “We have toddler time for those under the age of 5 and it’s a special time when the park is open so they can socialize and get exercise.”
With the move only a few months away, Bowne is excited for the opportunity it gives Sky Zone Trampoline Park to grow and be part of the community.
“I think what it does is it gives us more flexibility to stay current and provide some exciting and new attractions that will keep people excited and wanting to come back,” he said. “It allows us to be in a great location, and it gives us the ability to stay current and that’s the most exciting part about it.”
