Trampoline park coming to former TJ Maxx in West Manchester
Work is underway at the Carlisle Commerce Shopping Center in West Manchester Township to transform the former TJ Maxx space into York County's first trampoline park.
Dorgan & Zuck Building Contractors Inc. was awarded the contract and began construction in December, according to company representative Julie Lauchman.
The Fort Worth, Texas-based Altitude Trampoline Park will occupy nearly 30,000 square feet of space between Big Lots and Red Wing Shoes.
According to a new release issued by Altitude, the park's features will include performance trampolines, a trapeze, foam pits, dodge ball, a separate kids court and a rock wall.
In the release, Altitude CEO Jeff Rutten said his business is aimed at providing “a safe, clean family-friendly environment” that will include private rooms and other designated areas for birthday parties, church groups, athletic teams and others.
The company, which was started in 2012, currently operates 42 parks in the United States and five in Europe. In addition to the future York County location, the company currently operates one facility in Feasterville, Bucks County north of Philadelphia, and is planning to open a location in Pittsburgh, according to its website.
When the new Altitude facility opens, it will join competitor SkyZone Trampoline Parks, which has locations in Cumberland and Lancaster counties.
It's unclear when the West Manchester Township facility will open, and representatives from Altitude could not be reached for comment.
