If you’re looking for a place where you can literally bounce off the walls, you’re in luck. Fly High Trampoline Park is coming to Ogden.
The new park is scheduled to open this fall behind the Newgate Mall, at 3624 W. 250 West.
Fly High is locally owned and operated by the Dunkley brothers, who also own Dunk Lee Auto in Ogden.
With parks open in Nevada, and Colorado, the 40,000-square-foot space, which was previously a Sears Parts and Repair center, will be Fly High’s biggest location to date.
“We’re super excited to have one in our backyard,” co-owner Blake Dunkley said.
Added co-owner Robert Dunkley: “We build more of an adventure park with several different features that a lot of the trampoline parks here in Utah don’t offer.”
Those features include wall-to-wall trampolines, foam pits, Parkour and net courses, obstacles, dodgeball, basketball and a foam dart arena.
“We’re really trying to take the family entertainment center and make a one-stop-shop,” Robert said.
The facility will also offer party rooms, a food and lounge area, and a designated play area for those under 48 inches in height.
The Dunkley brothers stay active by trail running, snowboarding, wakeboarding and dirt biking. They credit their athletic lifestyles to jumping on trampolines at a young age.
“It’s just been an activity I’ve enjoyed since I was a kid,” co-owner Jordan Dunkley said. “It promotes agility, it promotes athleticism, and it promotes activity so kids are getting out.”
Minor renovations have begun on the new building, but the brothers are hoping to have the park open before the winter months.
“The funnest part of the business is the design,” Robert said. “We’re all jumpers and we love the innovative part of it.”
The trampolines are custom-built into the ground and walls, with the surrounding surface area covered in foam and inflatable mats. The Ogden facility will have updated features and activities to accommodate the larger space.
“Our goal is to really distinguish ourselves from just being a trampoline park,” Robert said.
Activity time will be offered in one-hour increments, with a discount on the second hour. Party booking and liability waivers will be offered online at flyhightrampolinepark.com.
