Turlock residents hoping to hop their way into the new year will soon be able to do so, with construction on the city’s Get Air Indoor Trampoline Park expected to begin this month.
Originally slated for a fall opening following approval from the City in September, the project ran into multiple permit issues which caused a delay, said Get Air project manager Matthew Thomas. The kinks have nearly been worked out, and Thomas expects construction to begin by the third week of January.
“We’re really close to being done with the permit process,” said Thomas. “The City had a few things they didn’t like, so they sent back the plans and we had to fix them and resubmit. It can be a crazy process.”
If all goes well with the permit process’ final stages, the park will be completed by either late March or early April.
CMD Construction out of Anaheim is spearheading the development, and the company recently completed a Get Air park in Victorville in record time, Thomas said. Typically, construction on new trampoline parks takes 12 to 14 weeks, but CMD had Victorville’s new location ready in just eight.
“The contractor really knows what he’s doing, so it should go relatively fast,” said Thomas. “The building we have is an open canvas and we should be able to rock it out pretty quickly.”
Located at 1300 W. Main Street next to Planet Fitness, the location is a 12,000 square foot facility that, upon completion, will be home to plenty of trampolines, a dodge ball court, foam pits and a ninja warrior course with spider walls, a slackline, monkey rings, a rock-climbing wall and a cliffhanger.
The new business is expected to provide jobs for up to 20 part-time employees and three to five full-time employees. Compared to other Get Air parks in the state, Turlock’s is “medium-sized” said Thomas, but will still provide plenty of fun for adults and children in Turlock alike.
“The area is perfect for a Get Air park as far as the amount of people and the age groups that we’re focused on,” said Thomas. “It provides good, year-round exercise and something fun to do for not a lot of money.”
According to Thomas, when construction begins in late January the Turlock location’s Facebook page, Get Air Turlock, will keep the public updated with pictures of development.
