With that in mind, we’ve gathered six of our favorite games to play on a trampoline with your friends. Once you’re done reading, why not come test them out in our safe and fun trampoline park?
Similar to the basketball game of the same name, this game of HORSE has you competing with friends in a trick challenge. To start, flip a coin or play rock-paper-scissors to determine who does a trick first. Once they’ve done their trick, you have to try to copy it. If you do it successfully, it’s your turn to do a trick for everyone else to copy. If you are unable to do the trick, you get a letter. Whether you play HORSE, PIG, or any other word, whoever receives all of the letters and spells the word in full will lose. This continues until only one person remains. However, if you are uncomfortable with doing a trick, it’s always better to stay safe. Don’t do any tricks you don’t feel like you can safely do.
Bounce battle is a combination of a game and exercise, with a competitive twist on it. This game all comes down to how long you can last. Each player faces off doing seat drops for as long as they can. The first person to lose their balance or stop doing the seat drop loses. You can vary this game by changing the trick that needs to be repeated for an extra twist.
The classic game that everyone can play works just as well on a trampoline. For best results, Simon Says should be played with at least three people. To begin, one person is chosen to be “Simon.” They will give commands to the other players with the phrase “Simon Says”, which the players will then have to follow. However, if “Simon” doesn’t say “Simon Says”, don’t do that command. If you do and “Simon” catches it, you’re out of the game. Feel free to change the name to whatever you like. Whoever is the last person standing is the winner!
What is already a fun game on solid ground becomes incredibly exciting when you move to a trampoline. This adds a whole new twist on the game, as it requires much more hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness to successfully hit someone with a ball. This one needs a lot of space to be played properly, so test it out at Rebounderz and enjoy wide open spaces. Dodgeball is probably the most competitive trampoline game, so you’ll want to be careful to make sure nobody gets hurt while playing.
Trampolines have the power to elevate your jump to new heights. You can take advantage of that to pull off incredible basketball feats. Whether you play HORSE or you just try to see who can do the coolest dunks, this is a great way to feel like an All-Star. Live out your dreams of being as good as LeBron! Check out the SlamBall court at Rebounderz to take your basketball game to the next level.
Another solid ground game that gets crazy when you add a trampoline, hot potato is easy enough for everyone to play. You can play with a ball or another object, passing it around quickly between everyone. Whoever drops the ball or stops jumping is eliminated, and the last one standing is the winner. Keep in mind, if you hold onto the ball for too long, you will be out.
