Sky Zone Is Bringing Over 100 New Jobs To The Kansas City Area

Sky Zone Is Bringing Over 100 New Jobs To The Kansas City Area

April 5, 2014

Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park is thrilled to announce its second location coming to Kansas City Missouri and will be holding its ground breaking ceremony in Lee’s Summit MO on April 10th at 10:30am.

Many local dignitaries including Lee’s Summit Mayor Randy Rhoads, Lee’s Summit Chamber of Commerce Chair of the Board Dr. Carolyn McKnight as well as Kansas City Royal’s mascot Sluggerrr will be in attendance at the event.

Recently featured on the season finale of Under Cover Boss, Sky Zone is the original indoor trampoline park play experience for kids, teens and parents to jump, leap and defy gravity on their patented all-trampoline walled playing area. Sky Zone activities fit all ages and fitness levels on a massive 25,000 square foot play area that is literally wall-to-wall trampolines. Guests can play "Ultimate Dodgeball" or participate in "SkyRobics" fitness classes that can burn up to 1,000 calories an hour. "Open Jump" provides a format for guests to freestyle their moves and "The Foam Zone" allows jumpers to air it out into a giant foam pit. "Imagine a seemingly endless sea of trampolines, all connected to form one massive trampoline surface," said Jay Highley, President of Marjac Ventures,

"Then imagine that surface enclosed with angled trampolines that allow you to literally bounce off the walls." Former Sprint and Google Executive, Jay Highley, is the president and managing partner of the investment group that is bringing the second Sky Zone to the Kansas City area. "We’re very excited to be bringing the newest Sky Zone to the Missouri side of Kansas City and for me personally, this is very special as my wife and I consider Kansas City our second home." added Highley.

The group owns and operates multiple Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Parks including locations in Fort Myers and Tampa Florida. Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park will be available to individual guests as well as birthday parties, corporate team-building events, and fundraisers for churches, schools, camps and others. Sky Zone is a clean, healthy and "family friendly" environment that brings the ultimate in high-flying fun for people of all ages.
