During the Board of Commissioners meeting on Sept. 19, it was announced that Launch Trampoline Park would be taking 30,000 sq. ft. of the old Kroger on Hwy. 53 and Ga. 400. It will include trampolines, extreme dodge ball, ninja courses, laser tag, an in-house make-your-own pizza restaurant and more.

The company's goal is to have the trampoline park open sometime in March 2020.

“Launch is an innovative leader in the family entertainment industry and we couldn’t be more excited about bringing new and exciting attractions to the area,” said Corey Stalnaker, who will own and run the franchise location with his wife,  Christina. “Even if they’ve been to other action parks before, I think the local community will be really impressed with Launch’s setup. There’s a focus on family entertainment and fitness, and safety. We make it a really fun, cool atmosphere for everybody.”

When operational, it is estimated that the park will create 40 part-time jobs, with a seasonal swell that could create around 100 part-time jobs.

“We are thrilled that Launch is opening in Dawsonville. Our community has wanted a place for kids and families to be able to enjoy fun activities year-round and Corey and Christina are bringing the perfect business to fulfill that need,” said Dawson County Chamber of Commerce President Christie Moore. “The revitalized Dawson Village Shopping Center is becoming a hub of family activity which will continue to increase with the addition of Launch.”
