Before he owned SkyZone, Carmel resident Tom Holsworth said he and his wife Danielle often took their kids there.
“I have four small children and they’re all active, and one of the things Danielle and I pride ourselves in is having fun with our kids, so we have been going to SkyZone for years, and I jump right with them,” Holsworth said. “It’s a big deal to us to be a part of our kids growing up. My kids love to go two to three times a week and jump for hours at a time. That’s the reason why I bought it, to be a part of my children’s growing up and be a part of their childhood.”
Holsworth owns the SkyZone in Fishers, 10080 E. 121st St. He also will own the new SkyZone in Westfield, which is slated to open at the northwest quadrant of Ind. 32 and Dartown Road before the end of the year. SkyZone will occupy 40,000 square feet of a building it will share with Laser Flash.
“It (SkyZone) will have the latest technology there is out there. We will have some virtual-reality entertainment sections, we will have our mainstay, which is the dodgeball courts, trampolines and the stuff we already have now,” Holsworth said. “I think we are doing some really innovative technology on the (virtual reality) side that will be in the park. People will be really surprised how SkyZone has evolved from a trampoline park. There will be a lot of neat technological advances at the Westfield park that haven’t been seen before in any park.”
In addition to a providing fun conduit for physical activity, SkyZone also offers a SkyZone Cares program in 71 schools, including some in Hamilton County.
“We provide services to kids who may not have the means to come to SkyZone,” Holsworth said. “So, if they read five books and they show that to their teacher, the teacher signs off and gives the kids a 30-minute jump pass to come for free.”
Holsworth credits much of SkyZone’s success to its staff.
“Obviously, SkyZone has had a great brand and reputation for a long time,” he said. “They were the innovators of the industry, and I think they still are. A key piece to that ,obviously, is the people in Hamilton County, but I think another large part of that is the staff and the executive staff that run the park itself.”
