Contest: Win $100 gift card to DEFY Thornton’s Extreme Air Experience
posted by: Guest Blogger
Colorado has some of the wildest adventures scattered throughout the state. It certainly is not lacking on indoor and outdoor fun for everyone. A new indoor “Extreme Air Experience” recently opened in Thornton and our family got to fly in.
Walking into DEFY Thornton, our senses were magnified by the massive 36,000-square-foot arena, full of a variety of trampolines and activities. The park is covered from wall-to-wall with 35 trampolines, from angled tramps to open jumping tramps, to super tramps guaranteeing an extreme jump. Once everyone got their mandatory grip socks on and flight wrist bands latched we were on our way.
My kids vary by age, from two to 12 years old, my boys went for the basketball trampoline, my daughter to the Extreme Dodgeball enclosure and my husband to the zip line. What I loved most about Defy is their focus on safety, while parents do need to stay with their children under a certain age, the activities are so well placed that it was easy to flow into something everyone could enjoy. With several Stunt fall height levels even the littlest person could go against gravity in flight.
Not only is Defy covered in trampolines, but there are Nerf cube pits to soften the fall off the zip line, and battle beams where my boys fought their way to victory. Although the foam pits are no place for loose objects in your pockets, they still highlight the propelled experience. If you like trapeze fun and moving obstacles while being launched in the air above a pit, all while contemplating your next Ninja Obstacle Course then you will find yourself fully entertained. But wait… don’t forget to hit the slack line, because there’s nothing like walking on a thin line.
DEFY certainly challenges the body. It’s where families can go to be families and have fun together. They have equipment to accommodate your next birthday party of jumpers, or even if you just want to take the kids out to get their juices flowing. Their prices are reasonable, they vary by age and the amount of time you want to be extreme. At your first visit you must purchase a pair of grip socks and bring them back each visit adding no additional cost. Defy also hosts different events catered to different youth ages and adults. These scheduled times are specific for an older crowd, where Defy focuses on creating a more mature environment. With a booming sound system, and walls covered in tasteful graffiti it isn’t a place tailored just to kids.
Prices start at $12/hour and range in price based on age and day of the week. Right now, they’re offering the After-School Pass, which is an incredible deal if you ask me. For a onetime charge of $50, school-age kids can jump after school for 2 hours Monday through Friday. This offer runs now until the end of December 2018. Purchase the After-School flight ticket and bring the mandatory grip socks and the kids can jump away.
It certainly was a memorable adventure and we will definitely be going back.
