How To Take Advantage Of State College’s New Trampoline Park

State College’s very own trampoline park opened last week after literally years of anticipation from the student body.

Though at first glance this may seem like the perfect activity for middle schoolers on a Friday night or for your 8-year-old cousin’s birthday party, I beg to differ. We’ll start you off with a few ideas on how to take advantage of Happy Valley’s newest amenity.

Give Your Body A Break From Football Season Drinking

No matter how much of a tolerance you’ve built up this football season, everyone needs a night off. Grab a friend or two and head to do some — wait, is this considered exercise? — jumping around in the foam pits. You know what to do:

Train To Be The Next Nittany Lion

From flips and tricks to the Nittany Lion’s signature one-armed push-ups, there’s no better place to train than at a trampoline park. This kid’s got to graduate eventually, right? And when he does, you’ll be waiting in the wings to take over as Penn State’s signature hype man.

Social With Your Org

This idea is admittedly a layup and an obvious choice. Rather than paying $25 a person to go on a hay ride where you’ll be cold and miserable, why not spend your hard-earned cash on some jump-around fun instead? The soundtrack is a no-brainer, so you won’t even have to waste time making a bumpin’ playlist.

The best part is you can still go out afterward, so there are basically no excuses for missing this social for the bar.

Spend Your Entire Spring Semester There

What else do you have to do, anyway?


Didn’t think so. Maybe if you never leave they’ll eventually give you a job and you can make a little spending money besides the $20 your grandma slips into your pocket every time you visit.
