Suraj Jagannathan may be in charge of businesses all over the United States, but that isn’t stopping him from having fun and, if you ask him, it shouldn’t stop you either. Jagannathan owns Urban Air, the newest and only “Adventure Park” of its type in the Pacific Northwest. The 52,000-square-foot facility in Meridian opened in December and features rock climbing, dodgeball, blacklight laser tag and mini-golf, a ninja warrior obstacle course, trampoline parks and much more, creating an all-inclusive family entertainment center.
“We encourage every adult to have fun, because why not?” said Jagannathan. “Adults are allowed to have fun too.”
For Jagannathan, nothing screams fun more than the Sky Rider attraction, a zipline across the park that speeds up as you race to your destination hundreds of feet away. “It really makes you feel like a kid again when you’re flying through the air and you see all of your friends looking at you and videotaping you,” he explained.
With a capacity of 987 people and the infrastructure to host 16 parties at once with eight party tables and private party rooms, including four private rooms overlooking the entire park, Urban Air specializes in hosting birthday parties that are fun for both parents and kids of all ages. Corporate parties have also been a hit, Jagannathan said. After all, what could be better than facing off against your boss in an old-school match of dodgeball featuring wall-to-wall trampolines or chasing coworkers through a blacklight laser tag maze? And regardless of whether you’re into throwing down monster dunks on trampoline basketball courts or taking to the air to try your hand at rope obstacle courses, Urban Air aims to help everyone unleash their inner-kid and experience the thrill of pure, unbridled fun.
Urban Air has an expansive list of fun activities for all ages. They have exciting options such as: Rock climbing, Laser Tag, Volcano Slide, Mini Golf, Ropes Course, 200-foot Indoor Zipline, Indoor playground, Ninja Warrior Course, Dodgeball, basketball, Battle Beam, and Pro performance trampolines, and a trampoline kids area. With all the choices, you’ll definitely have to come back for a second trip!
“We’re making memories happen,” says Jagannathan. “It doesn’t matter what age you are, having fun is having fun. What we have is extremely interactive for the whole family and we understand we’re making memories happen for everyone.”
