We at ShadowLand know that you have a lot of options when it comes to locations for birthday parties, or just general, fun outings with your children. That’s why we want you to understand the benefits of choosing us, of coming to our laser tag centers, rather than opting for some of the other guys, including trampoline parks.
The Dangers of Bounce Parties and Trampoline Parks
There are a lot of choices for, say, children’s birthday parties in Baltimore. “Bounce parties,” as they’re called, are very popular right now. These trampoline parks can be fun, but they also have the potential to be dangerous. There’s a reason that many parents don’t allow their children to have a trampoline at home.
If you’ve ever visited a trampoline park, then you know they have a lot of rules and a lot of people to regulate everyone’s activities. This is because there is a lot of risk to all this running, jumping, and bouncing, and they don’t want to be held responsible. A lot of kids complain about these rules, such as when they aren’t allowed to run and jump together into a foam pit, and they have less fun as a result. However, these regulations are necessary to avoid the inherent dangers of such activities.
Unfortunately, more and more research is being released that relates bounce parties to accidents and injuries. “Trips to the emergency room due to injuries at trampoline parks shot up from just under 600 in 2010 to almost 7,000 in 2014, the latest year of the study.” It’s likely only increased in the past three years, too, as the number of parks themselves have gone up. The worst cases, as reported, have “led to paralysis and surgery,” which should be scary to any parent.
However, there is no question as to the importance of the youth of America getting out and staying active. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that they need to be put at risk, or that you have to pay a fortune for them to have fun.
