Are Trampoline Parks Dangerous?
Are Trampoline Parks Dangerous?

Trampoline parks have surged in popularity in recent years, leading to an increase in injuries. According to research published in Pediatrics, the number of ER visits resulting from indoor trampoline park injuries went from less than 600 in 2010 to 6,932 in 2014.

While there are still significantly more injuries from home trampolines than trampoline parks, the injuries received from trampoline parks are generally more serious. Injuries from trampoline parks require hospital admission 9% of the time, whereas those that occur on home trampolines only require hospitalization 5.2% of the time.

Sprains and fractures are the most common injuries from home trampolines and trampoline parks. Injuries at the parks are more likely to involve a dislocation. They are also more likely to result in lower-extremity injuries.

If you decide to bring your kids to a trampoline park, be very cautious. Try to go when the park isn’t overly crowded, and make sure you are supervising your kids at all times. If you have younger kids, make sure they are jumping in an area away from older kids.

“There is always some risk of injury when you take the kids out for an activity. If you bring your kids to a trampoline park, do so with extreme caution,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
