Altitude Trampoline Parks Chicago

Chicago’s first indoor trampoline park will soon welcome bouncers of all ages inside an older industrial building in the West Town neighborhood. The upcoming 33,000-square-foot facility at 404 N. Armour Street will offer its guests multiple trampoline courts with dodgeball and basketball as well as a log roll, foam pit, and other physical activities, reported Block Club Chicago.

The West Town location comes from Texas-based Altitude Trampoline Parks, which currently operates 74 spots worldwide and hopes to expand to 100 by year’s end. The Chicago project represents Altitude’s fourth Illinois location, joining indoor parks in Bloomington, Glen Carbon, and Skokie.

While all the parks share certain design elements (namely a lot of purple padding), the West Town outpost will showcase some of the bow-and-truss building’s existing architecture. “The space is unique and urban,” said Altitude Chicago’s franchise owner Kevin Kolb in a recent news release. “It was important to us to create a park that feels organic to the neighborhood.”

Meanwhile, local artist Jake Merten is in the process of creating an exterior mural for the old brick structure, said Block Club. Showing children jumping through the air, the new artwork will brighten the building’s southern facade along Kinzie Street and the Metra tracks.

Altitude Chicago is expected to open later this fall. Construction updates and early special offers can be found on its website.
