Altitude Trampoline Park is quite the addition to Oswego, Illinois. It provides a fun, new experience to Oswego and has something for everyone to have fun with. The park has various activities to keep you entertained whether you’re visiting for an hour or all day. Not to mention, the pricing isn’t too bad for what you are offered. The question is, what all does Altitude have to offer for us consumers? Let me tell you.

Wipeout

The Wipeout game simply reminds me of a game of jump rope, as you must jump over a bar that is constantly spinning around without messing up. In the game, you can battle your friends in “king of the hill” over who can last the longest without falling. It is fun for competition for you and your squad as you jump up to avoid getting swooped under the leg.

Super Trampolines

Do you want to jump high? Altitude’s super trampolines allow you to jump higher than ever. The larger and more open trampoline lets you do things you can’t do on the normal trampolines, such as flips and 360’s. Not to mention, the Oswego location is the first to feature these super tramps. These trampolines let you jump extremely high, especially if you get some good lead up.

Trapeze Swing

The swing lets you be the athlete of your dreams, allowing you to be able to swing and do all the tricks you could wish for on a bar. This is also a great area for gymnasts to practice on their own.  Though I am not a gymnast, it was fun attempting to do tricks with a only a bare minimal risk of getting yourself hurt, as always though, you have to be careful. This definitely is a nice addition to Altitude if you are looking to try out some new stunts.

Extreme Dodgeball

Don’t we all miss playing dodgeball and being an elementary student? Well, it has returned! In the dodgeball section, the trampolines allow you to duck and jump over potential hits allowing for a range of movement that is not normally allowed in a normal game of dodgeball. This area has many trampolines stacked up and down, making the game 10 times more fun.

Performance Trampolines

Are you a parkour enthusiast? Then this is the area for you. With two different sized landing zones you can defy gravity and practice your skills with plenty of space. The performance trampolines were a grand time as they allow for flips and any other cool tricks you wish to do. These trampolines have the perfect amount of space for whether you’re looking to impress your friends or just have a good time

High 9 Reaction Wall

The High 9 Reaction Wall is another way to compete with your friends and see who has the fastest reaction time. There are three pods with three possible lights that will light up and you have to hit them as fast as you can. This will test your reactions skills and ability to jump as fast as lightning. This is an awesome thing as it is a little bit of competition with your friends or simply just jumping for fun.

Trampoline Basketball

Have you ever wanted to dunk but can’t jump high enough? Now you can as Altitude features a trampoline that allows you to run and jump up to a basketball hoop. A simple, yet fun addition.

Battle Beam

Have you ever wanted to battle your friends and test your balance at the same time? The Battle Beam has you balance on a beam while defending yourself against your friends who are trying to knock you off the beam. This is a great way to have fun in a safe and friendly manner.

Rockwall

Want to test your strength? Then the rockwall is for you. The rock wall lies over a foam pit, allowing climbers to reach for the sky without having to worry about falling and getting hurt. Reach for the moon!

Stunt Bag

Imagine a movie being made with the stunt doubles jumping and doing tricks, you can do the same with Altitude’s Stunt Bag. You can jump from a trampoline or a platform and do what you wish, allowing more free movement.

Overall, Altitude’s atmosphere is great for you and your siblings, friends, or even a family event. Whether you’re looking to learn some new tricks or simply have a good time, Altitude has something to offer for everyone. Click here for information on prices and passes.
