Real Mom Review: Get Air in Glen Burnie, MDBy Amy Flynn
Posted Aug 25, 2018
I've never taken my kids to a trampoline park before, so was excited to check out the new Get Air in Glen Burnie a few weeks after they opened. It's in a stand-alone building that used to be a Staples, so it's HUGE! It was kind of cool seeing the familiar red awning of Staples and being greeted by the automatic sliding glass doors.
We got there on a Monday morning, just after they opened, and I was surprised that it wasn't more crowded, as we were smack in the middle of that late-July rain-athon and I figured it would be packed. Not sure if word about their opening hadn't spread yet, or if the place was just so big that it never looks too crowded!
My kids, Hannah (4.5-years old) and Bennett (2.5-years old), are both well below 46" tall, so we got 2 hours of Open Jump on the "Little Air" attractions. "Big Air" is for anyone 46" or taller. As a non-jumping adult, I didn't have to buy a ticket and got a special wristband to accompany the kids into the park.
The dedicated "Little Air" sections were great, since it kept the "big kids" from colliding with the younger ones. There was a rope ladder and two runway trampolines leading into a foam pit, complete with "instant replay" for the kids to look up from the pit and see themselves jump on camera - so cool! Another enclosed area had multiple trampolines, obstacles, and an awesome trampoline/warped wall/slide that entertained the kids for hours. Note to parents - this enclosed "Little Air" section is truly for kids only. Parents are instructed not to enter except for emergencies. There's plenty of space to sit and watch them right on the edge and you're in close visual/earshot the whole time, so it's really a non-issue (even with a 2 year-old!). Of course, I snuck in to snap some quick photos anyway :)
While the "Little Air" jumpers couldn't use the larger trampolines in the main/central area, they could still access the Ninja Warrior Course, additional foam pits, Slack Line, Surfboard, and Jousting pit (where else can you legally try to smack your sibling with a large object and knock them into a pit?!). Hannah is OBSESSED with American Ninja Warrior, so she was in awe of the warrior course, and I was surprised how safe it was and how much the little ones could actually do!
The kids loved it and have asked to go back multiple times. I was impressed with how clean/new the facility is, how easy it is to keep an eye on both kids, and how much there is for them to do as "Little Air" jumpers.
If you have older kids (and more energy than I do), I'd recommend getting yourself a "Big Air" pass and joining in the fun. The larger trampolines and courts looked very inviting. I just might have to return soon for an adult night out!
