Big Air Greenville is two parks in one
Nearly two years ago, Dustin Pelletier left his career in the construction industry to start a new endeavor with his family as owners of Big Air Trampoline Park in Spartanburg.
The 35,000-square-foot park has proven so successful, the Pelletiers have expanded and are opening a second facility — Big Air Trampoline Park off of Woodruff Road in Greenville. Its grand opening was postponed from this weekend and is now planned for June 9.
Pelletier said the Greenville park will be even bigger.
“The park in Spartanburg is 35,000 square feet,” he said. “The park in Greenville will be 40,000 square feet. It will have everything you see in Spartanburg plus quite a few additional attractions.”
Like the Spartanburg location, Big Air Greenville will have a battle beam, Orbit, mechanical bull, laser maze, obstacle course, foam pits, rock climbing wall, main trampoline court, dodgeball court, small kids court and full-service café.
“In addition, the obstacle course will be larger,” he said. “It will be the newest, biggest trampoline park obstacle course in the state. We have a new attraction that’s hard to describe. It’s called Ramp Up. It’s basically a large conveyer belt you run up at an incline. It’s like running up an escalator — you know the way kids love to do — except it’s like a treadmill. It’s really fun. We also have a new attraction called Head to Head. You have two trampolines side by side and a wall in front of you with all types of sensors on it. Think Wack-a-Mole, except with trampolines. You’re jumping up hitting sensors with two people trying to get all of the sensors. It’s really fun.”
The laser maze will also be double the size of the one in Spartanburg, and the rock climbing wall will be interactive.
“We’ll have an augmented rock climbing wall with a projector projecting a game onto it,” he said. “You’re on the wall, playing the game at the same time. It’s a fun way to interact technology with physical activity.
And that’s only the trampoline side of the park.
The Greenville location will be two parks in one, Pelletier said.
“We have the trampoline park, and we have a rock climbing park,” he said. “The rock climbing park is completely separate and extra. It will have a full ropes course indoors where you are harnessed in. There will be 28 different rock climbing walls. Each of those walls are unique unto themselves.”
There will be admission fees for each park, but customers will have the chance to purchase combo passes to both parks, he said. He said all staff will be trained in safety, and the park exceeds all safety requirements required by law.
Pelletier said he’s excited to see Greenville’s response to the new location.
“I’m native to Greenville,” he said. “We opened in Spartanburg first because it was a good market, but when a great location became available in Greenville, we decided to go for it. I’m really excited to bring this Big Air park into my hometown. I think it’s going to be a tremendous success.”
