A California-based company is about to give residents here something to jump into.

Gravitopia plans to open a 27,000 square-foot trampopline park at 48 Brookfield Oaks Drive in Greenville. It will open this summer, becoming the first extreme trampoline park in South Carolina, the company said.

Gravitopia will offer more than 10,000 square feet of trampolines, an aerial ninja obstacle coures, trampoline dodgeball, olymic foam pits, trampoline aerobics and a site for “incredible” birthday parties, the company said.

Case Lawrence, the company’s owner and developer, has parks in Fresno, Calif.; Albuquerque, New Mexico, Birmingham, Ala., Richmond, Va., Knoxville, TN., and Tulsa, Ok., and Virginia Beach, VA.

He said Greenville is “the ideal city for our next park.

“It has strong demographics of youth and young adults; and has an active recreational culture,” Lawrence said. “We found a truly unique building for this concept. Gravitopia will be one of the nicest and largest trampoline parks in the country.”

Gravitopia offers some thing for offer something for all ages, the company said.

Customers pay for jumping time “per hour” with pricing between $8 and $12 per hour. In addition to birthday parties, Gravitopia will also host dodgeball tournaments, trampoline aerobics classes; and it’s famous Club Gravity—special weekend club nights with laser lighting and live DJ music.

So let's say it's $10 per hour, Two adults +3 kids for 2 hours.
That's $100 without fodd and drinks.

No thanks. I'd rather go to Lake Jocassee, take the dogs with us and spend the whole day for a few bucks.

If you've never tried jumping (and flipping) on a large trampoline, then understandably you would think this is a bit expensive. Let me simply say, the fun is worth at least $20 per hour. A drive to Lake Jocassee and the additional cost of maintaining or hiring a boat to access the large cliff for jumping into the clear water is not cheap in comparison, although admittedly you can enjoy a whole day of fun in the beautiful outdoors with little more expense.

I've been to a place like this in Raleigh. We jumped for 30 minutes and that was more than enough time. You're exhausted after that time length, not to mention sweaty.

nobody makes it more than 2 hours at these places, prices are fine. Plus they don't really cater to families with young kids they are more popular with adults and teens. Kids have many other places to go to

I have to agree. These places in other cities actually seem to have a large crowd of HS, college, and 20-30somethings more than "kids." So most people are only paying for themselves and it's not something you are making a day of and thus buying food or drinks or anything. You're there for an hour or two and out for $20 a person or something. Pretty fun, decent workout, and not that expensive in that regard.
