Urban Air Park opens in El Paso
March 13, 2020
El Paso continues to expand its entertainment district with the addition of Urban Air, an indoor adventure park. The park opened recently and is located where Toys R Us used to be on the west side. The park will cover 50,000 square feet and contain everything from trampolines to ropes courses to indoor coasters and more. This park hopes to attract kids of all ages since it contains every attraction that places like Bob-O’s, Adventure Zone, and Rockin’ Jump have, but in one place.
The first Urban Air park opened on October 28, 2011 in Southlake, Texas. This is just down the road from the company’s headquarters. Founders Michael Browning, Sr. and Michael Browning, Jr. wanted to create a facility that allowed them to serve their customers and share their vision of success within their network. It currently has 200 locations nationwide, spanning over 20 different US states.
Passes to the park can be bought upon arrival. There are three different passes, all with access to different attractions. The Platinum Pass is $29.99 and includes unlimited laser tag, unlimited spin zone, sky rider, ropes course, climbing walls, leap of faith, warrior course, Prozone performance trampolines, battle beam, tubes playground, and the basic trampolines. The Ultimate Attractions package includes access to the sky rider, ropes course, climbing walls, leap of faith, warrior course, ProZone Performance trampolines, battle beam, tubes playground, and the basic trampolines. The last large package is the Deluxe Attractions pass and includes access to the warrior course, Prozone Performance trampolines, battle beam, tubes playground, and the basic trampolines. Each pass offers something different, but they all allow the purchaser to experience multiple parts of the park.
This park is a mix of all the amusement parks in El Paso, but all located under one roof. Urban Air is taking El Paso to the next step in the entertainment industry and continues to help put our city on the map. The park plans hopes to be a huge hit among kids and families.
