Urban Air Adventure Park is Coming Soon to Fredericksburg, Virginia

Looking for something new and exciting to experience with the family? Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park is planning to open its doors in March of 2023 at 4250 Plank Rd in Fredericksburg. The fun adventure park awaits the opportunity to share all the fun in store for kids of all ages. From tots to grandpa, there is plenty to do for all. With a turn here and a turn there, new adventures await. 

Each ticket purchase grants you a MyFly wristband.  Scan your band at the start of each attraction to earn points, and compete against others on the leadership board. You can keep track of all your progress and watch your videos on  MyFlyhub.com.  

Laser Fury is an exciting new way to experience bumper cars. Their amazing light show while bumping and chasing down your friends and family members makes the game more tempting and electrifying. 

Spin Zone Bumper cars are a way to get back at those annoying siblings who have been making your blood boil.  Time to ramp up the excitement.  With every hit, you can get back at ‘em and release steam.

Glow in the dark Mini Golf is a fun way to compete against friends or foes.  Take an adventure in the glow-in-the-dark jungle-themed mini golf course. The kid-friendly putt-putt course is perfect for a birthday party or just good ol’ family fun. Share your excitement while watching your glowing ball get through the many obstacles, roughs, and traps. This will be nothing less than a memorable experience. 

The indoor go-kart track is the perfect way to celebrate a birthday, too. The twist and turns will challenge every driver. So if you ever dreamt of being a race car driver, come out with your friends or family for a friendly competition and let your dreams come true. 

Calling all bowlers!  There is a bowling alley too.  Imagine that.  Bowling fun anyone?

The drop zone is perfect for practicing flips and tricks safely. The giant inflatable airbag is great to absorb the impact from every jump while getting your favorite trick down.  

There is one place kids don’t get into trouble bouncing off walls. Practice your favorite tricks and flips on the indoor trampoline at the Prozone Performance Trampolines.  The wall-mounted trampolines spice up those trampoline jumping experiences where jumps and flips are more fun and challenging. 

Let your kiddos burn energy in the Urban Air rope course. Swinging on ropes, climbing the webs, leaping through obstacles, and balancing beams while challenging others couldn’t be more fun than on this course.  The high-up in the air course allows kids to face fears and conquer the world while building confidence, working on their motor skills, and allowing their imagination to run. 

Challenge your balance and your friends to a friendly competition on the Battle Beam. Don’t worry if you fall it’s a short soft landing into a fun foam pit. 

Who knew dodgeball could get more fun?  Play a friendly game of dodgeball on a trampoline. Making the game more challenging and fun you will be dipping, diving, ducking and jumping to dodge the incoming balls. There is always someone nearby to remind you of the rules if you need help remembering them and to help get you started.  So bring your A team and start dodging. 

Leap of Faith is a good way to find a thrill. Put on your harness and climb to the top of the platform to take the leap of faith. Jump and grab onto the hanging cylinder or monkey bars. No worries if you miss it, you have your harness to get you back to safety. 

The trapeze is a great way to work on upper body strength. Challenge yourself and others to make it across the trapeze obstacles while practicing your routines. Show off your skills and put on a show.  Don’t be afraid to fall with the airbag below. 

Bring your team to a victorious win in Laser Tag. The dark smoky and challenging obstacle course is sure to please the best snipers out there. 

Visit the arcade and get your game on. With a variety of games ranging from puzzles, racing, and defenders and fantasy there is a game for everyone.  So when you need a break from jumping, skip on over to the arcade and challenge yourself and your friends.  

Hop on the Sky Rider and soar through the air for a fun zipline experience. 

Climbing walls are a good way to gain balance and coordination while building body strength. They offer walls of different levels of difficulty for the beginner and the pros. 

Play a friendly game of hide and seek in the Tubes Playground and obstacle course.  Race through tunnels, zoom down the slides, and climb down the ladder for an adventure race to the finish line. 

A fun family competition on the Warriors course would be a sure way to settle a score. Just like on TV, you could put your speed, strength, and agility to the test on this fun adventure. 

Jump and dunk just like the pros. Show off your slam dunk skills at the Slam Dunk zone.  

There’s even FOOD. Wind down or refuel at the Urban Air Cafe, with many options for food and drinks. For more information about this park, including hours, check out their website here
