A new family fun destination will open in Cordova by spring of next year, as Urban Air Trampoline & Adventure Park is set to go in at Trinity Commons. The company plans to hire 45 people and will begin accepting applications this winter.
Urban Air will occupy a 30,000-square-foot space that is currently undergoing upgrades to house the national trampoline park chain. Construction should begin by November.
Owner Tad Duncan opened his first Urban Air franchise location in Birmingham, Ala., last September, and it has done so well that he is expanding to the Memphis market and also mulling over further expansion to other regional markets.
“I think Cordova is a really good area, with a lot of people traveling through each day. It’s a great opportunity,” said Duncan, who believes his new location is strategically located for success. “With some of the attractions we will have, no one else in Memphis has anything like it.”
The Cordova Urban Air will include wall-to-wall trampoline arenas, dodgeball courts, volleyball courts, drop zone, performance trampoline, slam dunk tracks, trampoline runway, and an area for ages 7 and under.
Also onsite will be Urban Air’s latest adventure attractions like the Urban Warrior Course, Warrior Battle Beam, TUBES Indoor Playground, Climbing Walls and Indoor Ropes Course.
Duncan also hopes to serve food at the location.
“We do plan to serve finger food like pizzas, chicken fingers, French fries, drinks and candy,” he said.
A portion of the Trinity Commons building had been a Malco movie theater more than a decade ago, and in the years since it had been donated by Loeb Properties for charity use as an annual Halloween attraction.
Urban Air Trampoline Parks is headquartered in the Dallas area, and the company has more than 20 franchisees with locations around the country.
