HANFORD — Things may be jumping at The Hanford Mall after Urban Air Adventure Park announced on its website that it secured the location as its next trampoline park site.

“We are excited to bring our state-of-the-art adventure park attractions to the wonderful city of Hanford,” Michael Browning, CEO of Urban Air Adventure Park, said in a press release online. “Residents of Hanford and nearby communities of Visalia, Tulare, Lemoore and Selma, can look forward to experiencing our modern approach to safe and affordable family fun and one-of-a-kind birthday party packages with our innovative adventure attractions.”

Urban Air describes itself as a “full-service family entertainment center” that includes attractions like trampoline parks, foam pits, dodgeball courts and obstacle courses for all ages.

The press release states Urban Air Hanford will be furnished with wall-to-wall trampoline arenas, dodgeball courts, a stunt airbag, slam dunk tracks, tumble track, various obstacle courses and a battle beam.

The release also said the site will be home to the Urban Air Adventure Hub, which is set to include attractions that can only be found at Urban Air such as an indoor rope course, indoor climbing walls, pro-zone performance trampoline pit and an indoor coaster.

Malory Sheffield, special event coordinator at Urban Air’s corporate office, said in an email Thursday that the company is excited about moving into the location.

Urban Air’s website said the Hanford location will feature 45,000 square feet of trampoline and adventure park attractions. It said there will also be a “state-of-the-art arcade” and café.

It's unclear where in the mall the park will be located, but the Forever 21 85,000-square-foot space that has been vacant since last year seems to be the only site large enough to hold what Urban Air said it plans to have.

Sheffield said the opening date for the Hanford location is still to be determined, but the website said it’s aiming for a spring 2018 opening.

Mall officials declined to provide details or an official announcement pending ongoing negotiations.
