LAGUNA HILLS, CA — (Marketwire) — 12/20/12 — Big Air, LLC is pleased to announce the grand opening of a brand new recreation complex, Big Air Trampoline Park (BigAirOC.com), located at 23251 Avenida de la Carlota Laguna Hills, CA 92653. Big Air Trampoline Park will begin serving Orange County families when its doors open for the grand opening kickoff at 5 p.m. on Saturday, January 12th.
Greg Briggs is the president of Big Air Trampoline Park and is thrilled to be back providing family entertainment to families in Orange County. Briggs is well known in the O.C. because of more than 25 years leading the success of Wild Rivers Waterpark in Irvine, CA. Briggs’ business partners include Evan Gentry and Joshua Hunter.
“I could not be more excited to be back providing family entertainment in Orange County. There has been a huge void with the loss of the waterpark and we will be filling that void,” said Briggs. “Whether you’re looking for a uniquely fun experience with the family, a party location for a birthday, corporation or team, or even a great workout, our park offers everything from hourly jump times to a variety of group party packages to morning workout classes. We offer ‘fun’ for all ages.”
Big Air Trampoline Park is located in a 25,000 square foot building with more than 14,000 square feet in jumping surface. Big Air will include a large main court, two dodgeball courts, foam pits, slam-dunk basketball and the extreme jump zone. The arena will also include arcade games, party rooms suited for birthday and team parties, and a parents’ lounge with large screen TVs and free Wi-Fi.
“Big Air is the only indoor trampoline park ideally located to meet the needs of families in South Orange County. Many will remember our location as the former Skate Palace, a popular roller skating rink from a few years back,” said Evan Gentry of Big Air Fun, LLC. “With Big Air we are coming full circle back to amusement, youth and fun family friendly entertainment.” Big Air is ideally located on a street/area known by the local residents as “Furniture Row.” The site has clear freeway visibility with easy access on both the El Toro and Lake Forest exits.
“The first class design of Big Air is unique, modern and user-friendly. As opposed to constructing the trampolines above ground like most parks, the concrete floors and more than 1,000 cubic feet of dirt have been dug out so the trampolines can be built at ground level,” said Josh Hunter, who oversaw the development. “We are developing a world-class facility and can’t wait to welcome the public in the new year.”
Safety is a priority at Big Air and referees are stationed throughout all jumping areas to monitor and enforce safety rules. Children ages 8 and younger can enjoy gentler jumping in the children’s jump arena and designated kid’s zone. Feeling comfortable and safe is all part of having fun at Big Air.
After its opening on January 12th, the park hours will be as follows: Monday – Thursday 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday 2 p.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 pm., Sunday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Management will be hiring approximately 50 employees. Applications can be found at BigAirOC.com.
