Locals soon will have the chance to jump around inside the area’s first trampoline park located within Goleta’s Turnpike Center.
Cloud 10 Jump Club is set to open Feb. 14 at 187 Turnpike Road as the 16th trampoline park constructed by Trampolines Unlimited Inc., a company run by Carpinteria residents who plan to make the latest installment its corporate headquarters.
The high-ceilinged, 19,000-square-foot facility — formerly a craft store — will also be the first park owned and operated by the company, according to Suzanne Wolfe Jewell, vice president of operations and safety.
This week, Wolfe Jewell gave Noozhawk a tour of the space, which features trampoline surfaces on the floors and ceilings. Club 10 will have an open jump court, dodgeball and basketball courts, a 40-foot half-pipe with a stunt airbag, and a three-story Cloud Kid play area.
Unlike other parks, Club 10 has an educational component in addition to amusement, since Wolfe Jewell plans to teach a USA Gymnastics Air Academy for those walking age up to 23.
She and her husband, Wayne Jewell, have been involved in gymnastics and the trampoline business for years.
“This has actually been our life,” she said. “It’s our passion. It’s not just a business for us. It’s good to teach that fitness is fun.”
