Louisville’s largest trampoline park is set to open this fall.

Oldham County resident and former South End-er Charles Hall has signed a licensing agreement with Texas-based Altitude Trampoline Park to open a 40,540-square-foot park at 4420 Dixie Hwy. Louisville’s two other trampoline parks are about 27,000 square feet or less.

“We always knew we wanted to do it in the South End,” Hall said. “Everyone says you have to go east to have fun for families.”

The business is located in the Shively Center next to physical therapy company KORT and a Norton Healthcare immediate care center.

The Altitude Trampoline Park will include a foam pit, 3D dodgeball courts, basketball dunking lanes, spike basketball, gymnastic tumble tracks, a large main jumping court, a concession stand and a place for parents to relax while their children play.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun. A lot of kids are going to like it,” Hall said. “This is going to be a community park for the South End.”

Hall said he and his wife researched other trampoline park franchisors but liked Altitude best and were able to license the brand, giving them more flexibility in how they operate.

“Altitude’s got a great reputation,” Hall said. “We’ve got a great team. They’ve been there for us every step of the way.”

The project just received its building permit from the city, and Hall hopes to open the park by mid-November. The space build-out will cost an estimated $1.2 million, according to the permit.

Once complete, Altitude Trampoline Park will be open seven days a week: from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. It will employ 50 to 60 part-time workers.
