Lift Off at Catch Air Hasbrouck Heights
As soon as we walked through the doors, my daughter’s face lit up at the sight of a huge slide set aglow with rainbow lights. We scrambled to the top of the structure and were amazed by all the things to do. The enormous, three-level climbing structure runs the depth of the building and is connected in unique and interesting ways. Start in the back of the structure, and kids can launch foam balls at aliens projected on the walls. Or, try to beat your high score by jumping on trampolines connected to video games. I loved that these trampolines were for single jumpers and were surrounded by mesh barriers.
Climb up to the second level and find a section with an enormous bouncy ball that’s easily 4 1/2 feet tall. Roll it to a friend before climbing over rope bridges, running around hanging bags, and wading through a lava volcano ball pit. Or, maybe take a spin on the turning chair, or a ride on a bouncy, soft zebra. There’s also a fantastic mesh climbing ring structure for kids over age 6 to scale. Kids can crawl through a clear tunnel and peek out to find familiar faces. There must be at least five enormous slides to enjoy as well, from fast multi-persons ones to classic twisting tunnels. Inclined ramps with soft “speed bumps” make many levels easy to climb for kids who aren’t steady on steps.

Gather your strength to scale the sloped climbing wall at Catch Air.
One really fun feature was a bouncy, inclined climbing rope wall that requires some serious skill to master. Try and try again to climb the mountain for the chance to slide down a rainbow tunnel (or have fun gliding down the hill on failed attempts).
Fun for Little Astronauts at Catch Air Trampoline Park
If you have younger ones, there’s a really fun, gentle play area to enjoy. The walls are lined with interactive manipulatives where toddlers can practice their hand-eye coordination. This area is also home to some enormous foam building blocks and soft slides. I loved that there was a slightly larger slide as well for families with older siblings (or daring little guys).
Snacks and More at Catch Air
Catch Air doesn’t allow outside food or drink in the building, but there is a pretty big snack bar on the premises with lots of tables and chairs. Most of the offerings were bottled drinks and packaged snack foods like chips and cookies. There was also a cooler stocked with frozen treats. Since admission includes all-day re-entry, guests can leave for a most substantial meal before continuing the fun.
