We’ve been off exploring the Tri-State area and beyond this summer and have certainly found a few new favorites. One of which is Freefall Trampoline Park located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Turns out the Lehigh Valley has all sorts of things to offer families, as we’ve been there recently at our Dutch Springs visit, too. Freefall has activities for the family year round, though. We were invited to check out their facilities on a blistering hot day, when you just couldn’t be outside any longer. The large warehouse like facility was a welcome reprieve as a blast of cool air-conditioned air hit us as we walked inside. We knew we were in for a great time, as we checked in, we could see a vast play area ahead.
Upon arriving, we were greeted by an extremely friendly staff and were able to check in seamlessly. Waivers are required, but are simple to fill out ahead of time via an online form. The kids got wristbands and then they were off. You pay for a block of time at Free Fall, so depending on how long you have purchased, you will receive a colored wristband that corresponds with the time you are to leave. A member of the staff will announce at half-hour increments which colored bands sessions have come to a close, so you don’t have to be watching the clock.
There are a ton of areas to play here! The park boasts a large open space with lots of trampoline floors, a ball pit area with balance beams across allow you to play your own American Ninja Warrior type games, graduated basketball hoops with a bouncy floor beneath allow for you to slam dunk, a dodgeball arena is enclosed from the rest of the bounce park where you can pummel opposing teams, an area just for those under 46 inches tall, and special games like Meltdown and a mechanical bull can be played for an additional fee. There really is so much to do!
In addition to that, you can also hold a birthday party, special event or even a slumber party at Freefall! Party rooms are available for those options. They even have designated hours for young and special needs children to participate in the fun without the distraction of too many or older kids.
My kids absolutely loved Freefall. There was fun to be had for all ages, as I saw very young children there as well as adults playing, too! I was happy at the amount of people there, as well. There is so much space, you don’t really have to wait for anything, nothing was overcrowded.
The only drawback we found is that the time went by fast. That’s not really a bad thing, as they say, time flies when you are having fun! We spent two hours there, which was the perfect amount to get some serious energy out and have a great time. I am so excited to know about Freefall, as I now have a great go-to for birthday parties and activities in the winter months when it’s just too cold to play outside. We will definitely be back and highly recommend that you give it a try, too!
