Myrtle Beach is famous for its wealth of fun-in-the-sun activities, such as parasailing, surfing, golf and beachcombing. But what about when it rains, or when it’s just too hot to play outdoors? Thanks to the recent opening of Rockin’ Jump, Myrtle Beach’s first trampoline park, we’ve got you covered — literally.

This 23,000-square-foot, indoor trampoline park and play center is the perfect place to take the little ones to burn off some energy when the weather doesn’t allow for fun outdoors. Featuring a series of play areas and climbing attractions, Rockin’ Jump provides a fun and safe alternative to the beach, pools and water parks.

The air-conditioned complex, located in the heart of town at the former Myrtle Beach Mall site, offers a wide variety of activities for all ages. The 30-foot rock-climbing wall presents a physical and mental challenge in a safe environment with safety harnesses and a trained attendant. Watch the look of accomplishment on your kids’ faces when they reach the top and ring the victory bell.

The Ninja Challenge Course, located in an enclosed cage for added safety, offers a stiff challenge for aspiring extreme athletes. They can cross the pit of foam squares using the quad steps, trapeze, cargo net, tube swing, swinging rings, hanging discs and an unstable bridge to test their skills against other children or themselves. Falling into the foam pit is half the fun, as kids are encouraged to try again if they slip.

Children who are fans of stick-and-ball sports will enjoy the Slam Dunk Zone, where trampoline launch pads allow even the littlest hoopster to experience the thrill of a slam dunk. Featuring three hoops of varying heights, kids can take it to the hole and glide through the air like a real NBA All-Star. The Open Jump Arena gives kids plenty of room to spread out, try out some of their best gymnastics moves and show off their leaping abilities.

Two dodgeball courts are unlike anything the children have played at school, with padded ramps providing great places to run and hide before juking to avoid the soft dodgeballs thrown their way. Kids can divide into teams for a fun game of dodgeball, or even enter a tournament to take on other teams. There’s also a padded jousting pit where kids can stand on a balance beam and try to knock their opponent off his or her perch, as well as a stunt bag for climbing and crawling.

For smaller children, a special section for kids 6 and under allows the little ones to jump in on a variety of activities in a safe atmosphere. Rockin’ Jump is also conveniently located next to the Children’s Museum of South Carolina, which caters to younger kids and offers a wide range of educational and fun activities.

Parents can even get into the action at Rockin’ Jump, or they can simply sit in the lounge area and watch the little ones at play. The lounge features six big-screen TVs, tables and chairs, in addition to the Rockin’ Jump Café for a drink or bite to eat. The café serves pizza, pretzels, salads and a long list of beverages, and the seating area has free Wi-Fi so you can kill some time online.

Rockin’ Jump offers play by the hour, special events and birthday parties, which are the perfect way to let your kids celebrate their big day. Birthday party packages include food, drinks and cake for the entire crew of up to 15 guests. Private party rooms are available, and the birthday boy or girl receives the VIP treatment from Rockin’ Jump’s friendly and professional staff.

Rockin’ Jump is located at 2200 N. Oak Street, across from the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. For more information, visit myrtlebeach.rockinjump.com.
