Urban Air celebrates its 10th birthday
Urban Air Adventure Park is celebrating its 10th birthday this month with a number of promotions.
Founded in 2011, the Dallas-based entertainment company was an adventure park pioneer and has more than 200 locations open and under development, featuring a full line-up of activities for the entire family, from wall-to-wall trampolines, dodgeball courts and obstacle courses, to tube playgrounds with multi-level climbing ropes and twisting tubes.
Urban Air is doing something extra special for reaching its double-digit birthday milestone this year, with With a number of special promotions and packages for visitors. These aim to encourage play amongst kids everywhere, while serving as a safe space for kids where they can enjoy free play, challenge themselves, become more confident with their skills and do what kids should be doing – letting loose and having fun.
Play has been greatly impacted due to the pandemic, with a recent national study having uncovered a ‘play deficit’ amongst today’s youth, with 99 percent of parents seeing the importance of unstructured play and the impact it has on children both physically and mentally. More than four in five (84 percent) parents reported that their children have been negatively impacted by the pandemic, given they haven’t interacted with peers (55 percent), have had fewer opportunities to let loose and have fun (45 percent) and feel more isolated than ever (45 percent). Meanwhile, more than half (55 percent) reported that due to restrictions their children are unable to socially interact with others.
“While it’s fun to celebrate our very own birthday, inviting America to join us in celebrating major moments in their children’s lives is much more rewarding, and we are honoured to make a memorable September for Urban Air fans everywhere,” said Jessica Correa, CMO at Urban Air. “Especially with the ‘play deficit’ affecting child development amidst the pandemic, we hope our efforts to encourage play only further supports them soaring to new heights and reaching any goals they may have both this year and well into the future.”
