There's a good reason Myrtle Beach is known as the Sun Fun Capital — actually, lots of them. Vacationers come to the Grand Strand in the summertime to relax on the white-sand beaches, play championship golf and sail on the high seas, just to name a few popular outdoor activities. But Myrtle Beach also has plenty of indoor fun for those rainy days and humid afternoons.
Long Bay Resort guests have a covered pool deck on the ground floor to keep the kids entertained during stormy and steamy weather, and a wealth of attractions and shopping options can be found nearby. But now visitors have another indoor alternative at the new Rockin' Jump Trampoline Park, where the kids (and even the adult-age kids at heart) can enjoy a bouncing good time.
Located on North Oak Street across from the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, Rockin' Jump provides a fun, safe and air-conditioned environment where the little ones can burn off some energy and shake off those rainy-day blues with a wide range of physical activities. Myrtle Beach's first trampoline park features 23,000 square feet of wall-to-wall fun and is a place where kids can kick off their shoes, slip into some special socks, and run, jump, bounce and climb their way all over the various obstacle courses.
The most popular attraction is the first-of-its-kind Ninja Challenge Course, which features balance beams, cargo nets, and swinging rings and bars over padded pits filled with foam cubes for a soft landing. Patrons can test their skills just like the contestants on the hit TV show American Ninja Warrior, racing against the clock or against other kids who step inside the caged obstacle course. There's also a jousting pit where patrons can go toe to toe on a balance beam and try to whack one another from their perches.
For those who prefer more traditional games over extreme sports, Rockin' Jump offers several options, including the Slam Dunk Zone basketball courts that feature three hoops of varying heights and trampolines where patrons can launch themselves into the sky and dunk like an NBA All-Star. Two full-sized dodgeball courts allow kids to break into teams and battle it out on a soft surface with no-harm balls. Rockin' Jump even offers dodgeball leagues so teams can compete in tournaments.
There's also an open gymnastics area for trying out new moves, a padded stunt bag and a rock-climbing wall where kids can scale the obstacle and ring the alarm at the top. For smaller children, Rockin' Jump provides a safe and fun area where kids ages 6 and under can also get in on the action. Rockin' Jump is also located next door to the Children's Museum of South Carolina, so you can drop the older kids off at the trampoline park and accompany the little ones at the educational center.
For those who prefer a little less bouncing and a lot more relaxation, Rockin' Jump provides a cozy lounge area with eight big-screen TVs — six tuned to regular programming and two to closed-circuit feeds so you can keep an eye on the children. The lounge also has comfortable seating, free Wi-Fi, and a concession stand serving pizza, snacks, drinks, salads and more. Parents are welcome to stroll around and watch their kids in action or suit up and join in the family fun.
Rockin’ Jump also hosts birthday parties and other special events where you can celebrate your child’s big day. Special party rooms can accommodate up to 15 guests with food, drinks and even birthday cake.
