We Put The Venture In ADVENTURE!

Urban Air is much more than a trampoline park. We’re an experiential destination hub! Urban Air park customers rely on us for special events and opportunities to make lasting memories with their families, kids, and friends in an active environment.

Why Urban Air?

Urban Air is the world's largest indoor adventure park with 160+ open parks & 180+ in development. Our remote ownership allows over 50% of our franchisees to own multiple parks in markets other than their home market.

Consumers love us

  • 300,000 birthday parties hosted in past 12 months
  • 19 million pairs of socks sold annually
  • Over 5 million icees sold annually.
  • Record sales in 2021
  • 28% EBITDA (all not just the top quartile).

We are seeking Multi-Unit investors who hire general managers to handle day-to-day operations while engaged in the business. Top-performing parks provide great experiences that deliver great revenue and profits.

Many of our franchisees have diversified their business portfolio with Urban Air. With two businesses in one, the Urban Café fast-casual restaurant defines the dining experience inside our parks.

From a single park built from the hands of our CEO to an award-winning top franchise in the nation, our brand is loved and highly desired. We are in the business of creating unique experience - memories for the whole family. Urban Air realizes that it has a bigger role to play in the community other than just making money.
