Toddlers and Trampolines: Fun in the Quad Cities

The Quad Cities now offers three fantastic indoor spaces to jump: Altitude Trampoline Park in Davenport, IA, Elevate Trampoline Park in Milan, IL, and Helium Trampoline & Indoor Adventure Park in Eldridge, IA. Our whole family (ages 2-40) loves to trampoline and enjoys the various activities, obstacles and fun at the different trampoline parks around the area. Recently, our toddlers have been taking advantage of the Toddler/Tot Times. You won’t want to miss this great opportunity for younger-child fun at a great price!

Toddler/Tot Time is usually scheduled when there are fewer older kids at the trampoline parks, so it’s easier for the young ones to learn to trampoline without being afraid of others causing them to fall. The times are (usually) appropriately scheduled around naps, and most of the other people there are aware and careful of the little ones learning to navigate the trampolines. Each park requires you purchase their respective socks (so we now have a collection!) and they have sizes even for the littlest feet.
