Indoor trampoline park to hire 100 new workers

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) - Tucked away off Long Point Road is the making of a new type of recreation.

"It is clean, active fun," said Brad Sullivan, owner of Charleston's first indoor trampoline park. "You can have fun, but can you be active and have fun?"

Sky Zone is being built within the old Velocity gym off Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant and will have a capacity of 130 jumpers.

"Twenty-five-thousand square feet with a little over 15,000 square feet of trampoline space," said Sullivan. "Three party rooms and then the ceilings range from 20 feet in the main area and in the big, open jumping court is upwards of 29 to 30 feet."

The franchise will be the first for the Lowcountry. Sullivan said the whole idea came about as an accident.

"I walked into a Sky Zone in Atlanta where I used to live and said it was the best $20 I ever spent. And, I said, 'I want one of these,'" he said.

Here's how Sky Zone works: You reserve a time slot ranging from 30 minutes to two hours. You sign a waiver upon arrival and get a pair of gripped socks.

"We've got an open court. Three dodge ball courts, two basketball goals to dunk on," Sullivan said.

The company also hopes to be one of the largest employers of young people. Sky Zone will hire 100 people as cashiers, court monitors, party hosts and party assistants.

A job fair will be held March 1{}and 2. On Saturday, the job fair hours will be 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., and 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. on Sunday and 411 Wando Park Blvd.

Those hired will be trained before the centers grand opening on April 12.{}
