CASPER, Wyo. — Youths and adventurous adults could be bouncing, climbing and flying through the air on numerous new features when Jump Craze Indoor Trampoline Park opens this winter in its new building.
The facility, under construction off Wyoming Boulevard and south of the Eastridge Mall in Casper, is about double the size of the current building at 4720 Lathrop Road in Evansville.
Owners Shawn McCoul and Dave Gallup hope to open Jump Craze at the new location by the end of this year, McCoul said.
The two-story, 23,000-square-foot indoor trampoline park will serve as anchor to a strip mall with six additional 1,800-square-foot rental units at the corner of Wyoming Boulevard and Centennial Village Drive. Site plans show two spaces with drive-thrus.
McCoul and Gallup are partners in the Antelope Flats Casper LLC, which is building the strip mall.
McCoul said they were ready to start construction on the 4.08-acre site when COVID-19 hit in 2020 and stalled the project.
“So, it’s exciting,” he said about reaching the construction phase. “It’s going to be a fun building.”
When they built the roughly 12,000-square-foot Jump Craze in Evansville about 10 years ago, it was the first indoor trampoline park in Wyoming, McCoul said.
“At the time it was great,” he said.
Now many more indoor trampoline park features are available on the market.
“It’s going to be way different from what we have now,” McCoul said.
While activity details are not yet fully worked out, he said the square footage of open trampolines at the new facility will likely remain the same. For the additional area, they are considering features such as “slam ball” basketball, a “huge” soft playground, climbing features and tunnels under the main-floor platforms.
As with the current Jump Craze, the new facility will have mezzanine and party spaces.
McCoul said they are still working to secure tenants for the smaller strip mall units. The vision is to have businesses such as restaurants, fitness centers and retail stores nearby that can offer parents something to do after they drop their children off at Jump Craze, he said.
