SKY ZONE: Kingston’s new indoor trampoline park goes wall to wall
Aug 31, 2015
Opportunities for fun abound at the all new Sky Zone Trampoline Park at the Kingston Collection. It’s so much fun, you just can’t keep your feet on the ground.
Sky Zone Kingston owner Stella Downie helps cut the ceremonial ribbon on the Sky Zone Trampoline Park at Kingston Collection.
With its large Main Court, three Ultimate Dodgeball Courts, a Foam Zone, a three-hoop SkySlam basketball dunk court and Toddler Court, the action throughout the indoor trampoline park is nonstop. And the Chill Zone on an upper level offers views of all the activity below.
Sky Zone Regional Manager Chris Wietecha said the company had been looking for a South Shore site for some time but had put that plan aside until last fall when it was approached by mall management with a new vision for the Kingston shopping center. The company liked the spot, and the timeline worked well.
Other Sky Zones are located in industrial areas, where there’s generally not as much foot traffic. The retail stores attract shoppers to the mall and to Sky Zone. And Sky Zone’s reputation often proceeds it, drawing people to the mall who then also frequent the stores. It’s mutually beneficial, he said.
“What’s exciting to us,” he added, “is that after opening a Sky Zone in Danvers in 2014 it seems like mall locations are even better for us.”

Mall officials have noticed the amount of traffic the trampoline park has generated. While young people have flocked to the new location since it opened Aug. 19, Sky Zone isn’t just for kids, Wietecha said.
It also offers adult fitness classes and rents space for parties and corporate events. Saturday night jumps from 10 p.m. to midnight are reserved for adults 18 and older.
The trampoline park concept has evolved over time, but the goal all along has been to promote exercise and fitness and to encourage a healthy lifestyle. Wietecha said offering healthy snack options is part of that plan.
Sky Zone is community driven and wants to be a community resource, Wietecha added. The business wants to give back by donating to local fundraisers, providing a venue for community activity and hosting a healthy living expo for families as Sky Zone has done at other locations.
Sky Zone Kingston owner Stella Downie recently hosted the Plymouth Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting ceremony, officially opening the Kingston location. Downie also owns Sky Zone locations in Boston, Everett, Danvers and East Providence, Rhode Island.
Downie, the first franchisee of Sky Zone LLC, said she’s excited to be part of Pyramid Management Group’s plan to bring people together for fun, recreation, entertainment, fitness and family activities. She also emphasized community involvement.
The creator of the world’s first all-trampoline, walled playing court, Sky Zone LLC continues to be a leader in the industry by developing new innovations. Sky Zone opened its first facility in Las Vegas in 2004 and now has 110 locations worldwide.
