After several months of construction, Launch Trampoline Park is nearly ready to open its new location in Dawson County.
Though no exact grand opening date has been scheduled, Amy Evans, general manager of the Launch location under construction at 78 Dawson Village Way in Dawsonville, said that the indoor theme park will soon bring new and exciting activities to Dawson County.
“We’ll have the trampolines with basketball and dodgeball, laser tag, foam pits, a launchpad and ninja warrior-style obstacle courses, along with an arcade and cafe,” Evans said.
The park will also include four party rooms for birthday celebrations and group events.
“We can host birthday parties, group parties, church events and that kind of thing,” Evans said. “And even fundraisers so people can use the place for things like that too.”
Evans said that park also boasts an “XP Arena”, which allows jumpers to compete against their friends and themselves in challenging ninja-warrior-style obstacle courses.
“They’ll have wristbands that have an RFID chip in them,” Evans said. “And it’s sort of like a big maze with different levels you can do, and it’ll time you so you can compete against each other for the best time.”
The laser tag arena will fill a large part of the back of the building.
“We’ll have blacklights, fog machines, laser beams, and it’s really big with hiding places and that kind of thing,” Evans said. “And then people can see their scores outside on the TV.”
The cafe, Krave, will feature food that is not only good for grabbing a quick bite in between games but will be tasty as well, according to Evans.
“We’ll be making pizzas, but they’re actually amazing; we make them right here with fresh dough and people can see them being made,” Evans said. “And we’ll have ice cream, chicken fingers and that kind of thing too.”
Everyone entering the park must sign a waiver, and this can be done ahead of time online so as to skip waiting in line to fill the waiver out.
“That’s gonna be a really great thing is that you can fill out the waiver online at home, and then you can skip the line and cut down on the wait when you get here,” Evans said.
According to Evans, the park has already hired about 65 employees, including a lot of local high school students who were looking for jobs.
“It’s a fun job,” Evans said. “As long as they can do their job and have fun at the same time, we’re all about that — we definitely work hard and play hard here!”
The main goal of opening Launch in Dawson County is to bring new fun attractions to the area, according to Evans.
“It’s a big need for it here, there’s just not anything like it up in this area,” Evans said. “People in this area just have to drive so far to get to other places like this, so it’s definitely a good opportunity to bring some fun to the county.”
