Sky Zone

A giant trampoline sounds like fun — but could it make money? Learn about a business that had 130,000 customers bouncing off the walls… its first year!

What they do:
A fun-land with a giant walled- in trampoline for kids of all ages.

Inspiration:
In 2002, Rick Platt bought a patent for a giant trampoline, but wasn’t sure what to do with it. Platt was considering different options, when the answer came when neighborhood kids started coming over and asking if they could play on it for awhile.

About the business:
Build the world’s first giant walled-in trampoline, and they will come! In 2006, Sky Zone was born, and 130,000 people bought tickets that first year. Sky Zone morphed into a franchise fun-land that offers everything from high-bouncing dodge ball games to exercise classes, and of course, just good old fashioned jumping. Within two years of opening its doors, Sky Zone had two locations and around $3 million in revenue.
