Flying Squirrel Trampoline Park features many trampolines for kids of all ages and adults. There are aerial silks, battle beams, foam pits, and more. It’s one of the best indoor playgrounds in Calgary, with two locations.
While most of the indoor playgrounds in Calgary I wrote about are for kids, Flying Squirrel is also for adults. With more than 40 trampolines, there’s a place for everyone.
The smallest kids have a separate kiddie court with trampolines to keep them safe, and the rest are suitable for everyone.
What I liked about the trampoline park is that the staff is constantly walking around and checking if there’s any unsafe behaviour. Even though we visited during the week when there were several birthday parties for older kids, I felt confident letting my almost 3-year-old son jump around, knowing he was safe.
The playground’s geared towards kids of all ages with the expectation that your child can jump. Otherwise, there’s not much to do for little crawlers. They would have more fun at Kidz Go indoor playground, Treehouse indoor playground, or Creative Kids Museum at Telus Spark Science Centre.
Let us take you through our visit, so you know what to expect. We provide lots of tips at the end as well.
Flying Squirrel Trampoline Park
You can find here lots of attractions to have fun for hours:
- climbing walls
- aerial silks
- hula hoop
- battle beams
- dunk hoops
- foam pits
- freestyle courts
- inflatable park
- kiddie court
- kiddie inflatable park
- rope swings
While other indoor playgrounds are not time-limited, you buy your jump time ahead at Flying Squirrel Trampoline Park – 60, 90, or 120 minutes.
When you pay the admission fee, there are lockers for your stuff. You need a $2 coin if you’d like to lock your valuables, or as staff advised us, we can leave there our jackets unlocked.
Arcade & café
I found this annoying, but before you enter the trampoline area, you go through the arcade. There are a few games, but mostly irritating flashing lights and loud sounds.
The café provides hot meals, snacks, drinks, and several tables to enjoy the food. They offer seven different pizzas or options to buy by slice, chicken nuggets, Pringles, mini donuts, candy bars, cold sodas, slushies, and hot drinks. Not the best selection, but since you’re paying by the hour for trampolines, there’s no need to waste time at the café.
The kiddie court has six trampolines, a climbing wall with a foam pit, a picnic table, and an arcade racing game.
Then you enter the massive trampoline area.
The most popular seemed to be the battle beams. Some parents are relieved there’s finally a place where kids can play and hit each other without getting injured.
The big 3D climbing wall looks like a fun place to learn climbing. Instead of being tight with a rope at a climbing gym, you can climb freely and then jump to the giant foam pit.
All attractions are located around the central massive trampoline area. There’s a hula hoop with a foam pit underneath, dunk hoops, a freestyle court where you can also jump to the sides of the trampoline, aerial silks, slacklines, and rope swing, and all have foam pits underneath so that kids can go crazy.
There are several massage chairs by the rope swing and lots of couches around the whole trampoline area for parents to relax.
One side of the building is dedicated to the inflatable park with many obstacles and slides.
Overall the Flying Squirrel Trampoline Park is an excellent place for kids and adults, and I can see why older kids enjoy it so much.
