You’d love to bottle his boundless energy and tap into it on frozen dinner nights, but so far no one’s minted a method that works. There’s really only one alternative: run him ragged.
Crissy Field’s new House of Air, a state-of-the-art indoor trampoline park, brings a new level of thrill to that chore. With open jump time, aerial training, dodgeball, and soon-to-be-added morning fitness classes (including soft-impact mommy and me sessions), it’s the Taj Mahal of bouncing.
“Air traffic controllers” offer flight tips and keep everyone out of harm’s way. Plus, little leapers are cordoned off from weightier jumpers in an inflatable bounce house with a climbing wall. Bigger kids and adults can try any of the four trampoline courts, each optimized for different aerial antics, including an epic Matrix, with 42 conjoined trampolines and a dodgeball/basketball court. All of it guaranteed to put some bounce in your step.
House of Air, 926 Mason Street, West Crissy Field, The Presidio (houseofairsf.com). Adults, $14 for the first hour, $10 for each additional hour; children ages 3 through 6, $10 per hour. Birthday parties start at $140 an hour. Discounted multihour passes available.
