A Winnipeg trampoline park will begin holding monthly nights for children with autism, ADD/ADHD, and other sensory challenges.
Sky Zone Winnipeg will be holding Sensory Night starting in March.
“We dim the lights, we turn the music low make sure it’s accommodating their needs, and then, they come in and jump,” said Stephanie Harris, community outreach manager for Sky Zone Winnipeg.
The initiative was started by the company’s Los Angeles headquarters in response to research that shows activities like trampoline jumping can be soothing for children with autism, ADD/ADHD, and other sensory challenges.
Sky Zone opened in 2013 and boasts six courts of interconnected trampolines, a foam pit, basketball court and party room.
The jump time is free and will run the third Wednesday of every month from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
