Safety

Safety is our number one priority at Flying Squirrel Sports. Our attractions are among the safest in the industry and our parks utilize our patented Shock Trampoline Park system. Our patented system greatly increases trampoline safety without compromising the enjoyment of our guests. Our staff is trained in the latest and best safety procedures and our Flight Crew is stationed throughout the park to ensure all guests comply with our park rules. Additionally, each park undergoes daily, weekly, monthly, and bi-annual safety inspections. Come fly with us…Safely! Also all foam pits and air bags are regularly cleaned and circulated.

General Rules

GENERAL RULES

Assumption of Risk

Participation in trampoline activities is an inherently dangerous recreational activity and involves a level of risk that each participant must evaluate on their own. By using this facility, you are assuming a risk of serious injury or death. For your safety, you should be in good health and free from high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions that could be aggravated by jumping on a trampoline. Jumping while pregnant is prohibited as well due to the increased risk of being off balance and falling. Warning! Catastrophic injury, paralysis or even death may result from failing to follow the rules below and due to inherent risks, sometimes even if all rules are followed.

Liability Waiver

All guests of Flying Squirrel are bound by the liability waiver and release set forth in the terms of the agreement that must be executed upon admittance to this facility.

  • Must wear trampoline socks and required wristband.
  • Somersaults not recommended.
  • Do not double bounce.
  • Do not sit or lie on the court.
  • Wear appropriate clothing.
  • No diving or double flips into the foam pits or air bag.
  • Be alert of jumpers around you.
  • No climbing.
  • No drugs.
  • No rough housing.
  • No running.
  • No chewing gum.

SAFETY RULES: DEFINED

No Running or Racing

Do not run or race across the trampolines (therefore no playing games such as “Tag”).

Do Not Double Bounce

Double Bouncing is attempting to propel someone higher by timing a jump as they land on the trampoline. Avoid simultaneously jumping with others close by. It is especially dangerous for larger people to double bounce smaller people. Additionally, games such as “Crack the Egg” or “Popcorn” are not allowed due to their high probability of causing an injury.

Always Land on Both Feet

When jumping, be sure to land safely. Landing on one foot may cause serious injury.

No Double Flips

Do not attempt double flips of any kind.

No Aggressive Behavior

Do not push, tackle, wrestle, or engage in any other activity that may interfere with another jumper.

No Landing on Safety Pads

Always jump near the center of the trampoline. Do not jump directly onto the safety pads, as injury may result.

Do Not Sit or Lie Down

Never sit on top of the safety pads, trampoline mats or on the top ledge of the waterfall (ramp-like) trampolines. If you need to rest, please exit the court.

Skill Level

Attempting maneuvers beyond one's skill may cause serious injury.

Dangerous Tricks

Flips and other tricks are dangerous.

Perform at your own risk only if you have sufficient skill to avoid injury to yourself or others.

What makes us safer

FLYING SQUIRREL PARKS

Safety Signage

Safety signs are posted throughout the entire park. Our staff will remind you of these rules while you’re jumping.

Flight Crew

Flight Crew are stationed throughout the park. They enforce safety rules, cleanliness and assist in the event of injury.

Equipment

Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and bi-annual routine safety inspections are conducted to ensure that all equipment is in proper condition.

Bedrails and Springs

Safety padding and spring skirts cover all springs between our trampoline mats to prevent jumpers from falling on, through, or in between the springs and steel framing.

Trampoline shock absorbing suspension mounts, a connection system with a pivoting horizontal bed rail and German gas shock system incorporated directly into the trampoline park framework. When the jumper lands on the safety pads, the shock absorbing system slows the jumper down upon impact to reduce injuries.

Padded Posts

All interior columns and posts have padded covers to protect jumpers from injury.

Park Netting

No-climb netting is placed to separate attractions.

Foam Pits & Air Bag Trampolines

Our courts are engineered with a shock absorbing suspension system. Unlike other trampoline parks, our foam pit/air bag launch lanes have gas shock absorbers incorporated into the framework of each launch lane. This reduces injuries from jumpers landing on the safety pads that cover the steel frames.

All foam pits and air bags are regularly cleaned and circulated.

Cleanliness

Our trampoline mats, pads, and platform surfaces are cleaned and disinfected on a daily basis.

CLIMBING WALL SPECIAL SITUATIONS

CLIMBING WALL SPECIAL SITUATIONS

  1. Climber Frozen at Top
    • Ask the climber to stay calm. Say that you are going to come up and help him or her down.
    • Put on a harness.
    • As the climber next to the frozen climber finishes his or her climb, clip into the Auto-Belay cable and climb the wall.
    • When you reach the frozen climber, show the climber the climbing holds to climb down.
    • NOTE: Encouraging the climber to rappel down generally will not work.
  2. Climber Reports Discomfort
    • Ask the climber to stay calm. Ask the climber if he or she is comfortable rappelling down. If so, then ask him or her to do so. (If not, follow the procedure for “Climber frozen at top,” above.)
    • If the problem is with the climber’s harness comfort, then adjust the harness, and let the climber begin climbing again.
    • If a climber is unable to resume for whatever reason, unhook and send the climber back to the harness area.
  3. Climber Is Intentionally Reckless
    • Ask the climber to take it easy. If he or she persists:
    • If you do not believe adjacent climbers would be endangered, tell the reckless climber to rappel down or climb down now; or
    • If you believe other climbers might be endangered, tell the reckless climber to freeze at his or her position, and ask the other adjacent climbers to rappel down first (you can let them restart once the reckless climber is removed from the wall.) Then, tell the reckless climber to either rappel down or climb down.
    • Unhook the climber and send the climber to the harness area.
  4. Climber Too Light to Rappel Down
    • Ask the climber to stay calm.
    • Put on a harness.
    • As the climber, next to the frozen climber finishes his or her climb, clip onto the Auto-Belay cable and climb the wall.
    • When you reach the climber, grab his or her Auto-Belay cable. Then your weight and the climber’s weight will cause both of you to rappel down.
  5. Auto-Belay Cable Retracts to Top of Wall
    • Put on a harness.
    • Clip onto an Auto-Belay cable and climb the wall.
    • Grab the loose Auto-Belay cable and bring it down. When you get to the bottom, attach it to the bolt hanger at the bottom of the wall.
