An invitation toa business meeting brought me to “Urban Air Adventure Park,” in Lake Grove. What was formerly a JC Penney’s, has turned into 48,000 square feet of “a trampoline park on steroids…” accordiing to Tim Tanswey, one of our hosts. It’s the “…ultimate indoor playground for the entire family.” (website)
The very large, paved parking lot has more than twleve handicapped (van)- accessible spaces throughout. Street-level, automatic doors lead to the welcome area.
Colorful lights, incredibly high ceilings, and the amusements I could see from where I entered, served to whet my appetite for what was to come. As I walked to one of the party rooms where our meeting was to take place, I was fascinated by what I saw – a sky ride, ropes course, adventure hub, climbing walls, tubes playground, climbing hill, trampolines, bumper cars, an arcade and cafe. I know there are more – you will have to check them out for yourself. Everything is bright, new and very clean! There are plenty of places to sit where you can keep an eye on your kids. You can even go up the ramp to one of the areas and find benches there.
Kids at each of the areas seemed to be completely engaged in what they were doing. Staff seemed to be keeping a close eye on them. Some of the areas for the small kids had parents participating with their children. I must admit that I have no idea of how things are when it is crowded. I was told that there is a limit on the number of kids allowed in at one time. If you want more specifics, go to their website, www.urbanairtrampolinepark.com.
Urban Air just opened in November, 2019. Much of what they do for guests is based on feedback they get as the park continues to grow. Dave Wometz, one of the co-owners, assured me that they are dedicated to ensuring the best experience for everyone who visits. They are working on a variety of programs for differently-abled children, including sensitivity programs and programs for those with physical disabilities. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s particular needs, contact (631) 861-4125. If my experience today was any indication, they will be happy to help.
The Cafe offers a variety of items. Order at the counter and get a buzzer that lets you know when your food is ready. There seems to be plenty of seating, with adequate space between tables.
The restroom situation is quite good. All restrooms are located in a hallway to the right of the Cafe. Multi-stall men’s and women’s rooms each have large, handicapped-stalls. There are also two large, single-occupancy, family restrooms, with wheelchair-accessible sinks and baby-changing stations.
Urban Air Adventure Park seems to be a great indoor activity venue for families! . I can’t wait to bring my granddaughter when she visits from California!
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.urbanairtrampolinepark.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
