Helium Trampoline & Climbing Park hosts a sensory-friendly night on the first Monday of each month. This special evening is for children and adults with special needs. What does that mean? An individual with special needs has a mental, emotional, or physical problem that requires a special setting. Some children and adults with special needs also have sensitivity to noises, lights and crowded settings. This is referred to as sensory sensitivities. According to Brain Balance Achievement Centers sensory sensitivities are defined as hypersensitivity, meaning over-responsiveness, or hyposensitivity, meaning under-responsiveness, to sensory stimuli. To someone with sensory sensitivities the way a room looks, sounds, or feels may lead to feelings of extreme discomfort, anxiety, or panic. The feeling can be so overwhelming that it interferes with everyday life.
For children and adults with special needs or sensory sensitivity disorders visiting places like the grocery store or a trampoline park can seem really scary. The feeling can be alienating. That is why once a month we dedicate the park to those with special needs. On this special evening, we welcome individuals for two full hours of fun without loud music or bright lights. We tone down the environment to accommodate our special friends and bring them together for a fun evening of carefree play with other individuals experiencing similar circumstances.
Our sensory-free special needs night is held on the first Monday of each month and features:
- No music
- Fewer distractions
- Special pricing of $11 per jumper for 2-hours
We hope to see you there! View our calendar to see the dates of our other upcoming special needs nights and other special events.
