What to do with teenagers when roller skating gets old? SkyZone!

As the mother of a teenage daughter, figuring out activities that give ME a break, are nearby, don't involve computers and cell phones, and don't cost an arm and a leg can be difficult. Yes, the roller skating rink worked until she was about 13 - she and her friends would meet there and feel grown up that we parents would leave them there for a couple of hours on their own. But that faded, especially after our local roller skating rink added a bar serving alcohol, and the median age of the skaters went up dramatically. It wasn't a safe place for young girls to be anymore.

Enter SkyZone! Not only is trampoline jumping good exercise, but they have to PUT DOWN THEIR PHONES to do it. lol. Last night we attended the SkyZone Kennesaw VIP event where folks of all ages jumped, tossed dodgeballs, jumped into a giant foam pit, and shot hoops -- all while bouncing like crazy on the 34,000 square feet of trampolines. INSANELY COOL.

If you have a teenager - or if you still have a love of trampolines, i highly recommend spending some time at SkyZone.
