Maybe it’s Central Oregon’s reputation as an outdoor playground or the region’s status as a destination for retirees, but there is a distinct lack of indoor entertainment for kids and families. Enter Mountain Air Indoor Trampoline Park, Bend’s newest must-experience attraction for the sixteen-and-under set that opened just before Thanksgiving. Located in the former Fuqua Homes warehouse east of the Bend Parkway, the space has been thoroughly and meticulously updated with wall-to-wall trampoline zones, including a younger children’s area where parents can supervise. Owners Brad and Rendy Tucker have given great attention to detail in both the design and features of the newly minted park. They wanted a facility that captivated kids while offering something for adults who accompany. “We’ve all been to those places for a kid’s birthday party where you’re asking yourself, ‘When is this fifty minutes up?’” joked Brad Tucker. With that in mind, the Tuckers included a café and lounge with charging stations and outlets. They doubled up on wi-fi connections knowing that many parents can use the downtime to work online. They traded the typical industrial look for splashy colors of electric blue and neon green. Steel garage doors allow for warm weather air circulation and mountain views. If initial reactions are any indication, it appears that Bend was ready to jump. The first two days of business drew nearly wall-to-wall sellouts in the ninety-person capacity jump zone, with would-be jumpers queuing up in lines that stretched into the parking lot.
