There is a new place to jump around in south Tulsa. Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park at 8306 East 61st Street is gearing up for their busiest time, the weekend. 

Just think trampolines.  You can dunk -- which I attempted -- play dodge ball, or just jump around, all in special orange sticky socks. 

Something I was really enjoyed was the Foam Zone Pit.  Its 9,000 blocks of foam six-feet deep, but the only problem is getting out. 

I visited Sky Zone when they opened at noon on a Friday.  They told men they're busiest on the weekends, averaging more than a 1,000 visitors a day. 

"We have the adults, we have the teens, we have the kids, toddlers.  We welcome everyone to come in and jump," said Sky Zone operations manager Kurtis Dean. 

We saw folks of just about every age bouncing around, catching up to them, was a different story.  The bigger kids were a little easier to talk to, but you still can't help but jump. 

They do have chairs to sit and watch, but who would want to do that? 

Sky Zone is open Monday – Thursday noon to 8 p.m., Friday noon to 11:30 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
