Urban AirWe all need to deepen our bench of indoor activities that allow our kids to expel some energy, especially during the colder months. Don’t let the warmer temps fool you, we’re not nearly through the thick of winter. The bulk of our 2019 snow days were in February after all.

Lucky for us, the newly opened Urban Air Lenexa is here to help! Whether you’re looking to book your kiddo’s next birthday party or for something to do on a chilly afternoon, Urban Air has it all. Seriously. Your kids can jump, climb, sky ride, and slide while you sit and relax in a massage chair, grab lunch, or participate in the fun yourself. 

There are over a dozen activity options to choose from that will satisfy a range of ages. The Adventure Hub® includes the Sky Rider coaster, Ropes Course, and Tubes Indoor Playground. The playground has several slides (some pretty fast!), various obstacles, and different climbing features. The Sky Rider and Ropes Course are directly supervised by staff and participants are well secured as they soar above the adventures below. There are also a variety of climbing walls and structures to accommodate climbers of varying heights, ages, and skill — also supervised and secure.

And the trampolines. Wow. So many options. With trampolines on the floor and on the walls, you can jump, run, dunk a basketball, practice your flips, and play dodgeball. Alongside all of the jumping fun, you will also find their Warrior Obstacle Course, the Battle Beam, and Wipeout.

Three levels of daily admission allow participants to spend their time on basic trampolines, deluxe attractions, or ultimate attractions — daily parent passes are just $6.99 for the same level as the child participant. For those who plan to visit regularly (yes, please!), they offer four different Endless Play Memberships that include fantastic perks at each level — no blackout days, member appreciation days, discounted merchandise, weekly events, and free/discounted food. Oh, and you can add a parent pass membership for $3.99/month with purchase of a child membership.

Did you say birthday party? Urban Air Lenexa has you covered with three 2-hour birthday packages (basic, deluxe, ultimate) and other options (table or party room) that include a digital invitation, paper products and forks, balloons, socks, and more. The website has an extensive birthday
FAQ to help with planning. They handle everything. All you have to do is show up and have a blast, which is all the gift I need when our kids’ birthdays roll around.KC

As we experienced everything with our kids, what I noticed most about the facility was how much fun kids of all ages (as well as adults) were having. Because Urban Air Lenexa has such a wide range of activities, there was something for everyone. We cannot wait to go back!

KCMC Mom Tips:

  • Fill out the waiver online ahead of time to streamline the check-in process.
  • Urban Air socks are required — they’re $3 and you get to keep them. The socks have grippers on the bottom and light up with the black lights, so they’re useful and fun.
  • Make sure you checkout the website so you don’t have anyone disappointed by height requirements, which vary by attraction.
  • There are plenty of cubbies throughout the park for shoes and jacket storage as well as some lockers for rent.
  • There is plenty of seating for adults to observe and relax while the kids play.
  • There are water bottle fillers at the water fountains.
  • There is a full-service café on site — the pizza is delicious!
  • They have free WiFi.

Urban Air has locations in both Lenexa and Overland Park.

Claire made her way to Kansas City after graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where she met her husband Scott (a KC native and Mizzou grad). Both are high school educators; she teaches English while he often schools her in history. They live in Olathe with their two small children -- Evan 5 & Abbie 3. Claire regularly spends time advocating for early childhood education/intervention and is always looking for ways to become more civically engaged. She loves cheering on the Huskers and the Royals, date nights, reading five books at once, writing, contemplating the deeper issues of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, and listening to her kids giggle together.
