FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Forsyth County will have the chance to jump into a new experience later this year when Launch Trampoline Park opens a franchise in Cumming.
The business was founded in 2012 by retired New England Patriot cornerback and three-time Super Bowl champion Ty Law and his business partner and entrepreneur Robert Arnold.
Arnold came up with the idea after visiting a trampoline park with his wife and children in 2011.
“We both wanted to start a business that appealed to families and got everyone active,” Arnold said.
Since then, there have been 11 parks opened, including one in Columbus, Ga. In addition to the trampoline court, the Columbus location offers fitness classes, toddler play time and a cafe.
Later this year, Cumming will be home to one of the company’s newest locations at 5975 Bethelview Road.
The Cumming location will feature all of the park’s standard features including:
• A giant main court of connected trampolines that span the floor and walls
• Slam dunk courts
• Dodgeball in a 240 square foot space
“The Cumming and surrounding area has so many families, and we feel Launch would be a perfect fit to provide those families with engaging, exciting and entertaining fun,” Arnold said.
“We saw a need for family entertainment in suburban areas, including Cumming which could use a little bit more entertainment. It is a friendly area. Families are engrained in the community.”
The whole goal of Launch is to create a family-friendly, active environment, Arnold said.
“We built this company on the idea that people are staring at their phones all day long and the kids’ heads are in the clouds,” Arnold said. “Getting families together for that one-on-one time is getting harder. We’re all about creating memories for families. I guarantee we’ll make memories for the people of Cumming.”
Launch currently has plans to have a total of 25 locations open by the end of 2017.
