This guest post was written by Mike I. — A parent who recently had his son’s birthday party at Helium Trampoline & Indoor Adventure Park recently.
For the last couple of years, Helium has made my son’s birthday party one to remember. They have what it takes to keep kids entertained for hours (including literally letting them bounce off the walls) and this year was no exception. The kids had a blast from start to finish!
Trampolines – As a trampoline park, Helium is covered in bouncing surfaces. And what kid doesn’t love jumping and tumbling on trampolines? But Helium has expanded to an adventure park, so their trampolines are just the beginning.
Ninja Warrior Course – This obstacle course is just like the one on TV but sized down so every kid can fight the competition and their own limits to become Helium’s next Ninja Warrior. Get ready to take home the glory!
Warped Walls – Can your kid climb the warped panels to reach the top of the wall? My son loved taking on the challenge of climbing this 3D Tetris board.
Giant Airbags – Freefall from their tower onto the an airbag below in the Walk the Plank Jump Tower — but be on the lookout for shark attacks! For the more competitive kids at the party, there was the Gladiator Joust Beam, where two contestants test their skills and try to push their opponents off the beam onto the airbag below.
Dodgeball – Helium dials this classic game up a notch — It’s dodgeball on trampolines.
Aerial Rope Course – My little monkey loved scrambling over obstacles while suspended 25 feet off the ground.
Human Hamster Balls – What kid hasn’t wondered what it’d be like to bounce around in their own giant hamster ball? Add in the bumper cars vibe of rolling into other “Human Hamsters” and you have a game the kids won’t stop talking about.
Wipe Out – When kids get tired of just bouncing around, Wipe Out levels up the trampoline experience. The spinning wipe out arms try to knock kids off their feet. It takes careful timing to avoid the soft spinning arms — but look out! They change directions.
Mt. Helium Clip and Climb – Kids who dream of climbing Everest (or the back of the couch without getting in trouble) can reach for the sky (and the roof) on Helium’s climbing wall.
Another winning birthday party is on the books, and the only thing my son feels like he can’t do after all that adventure is wait another year before visiting Helium again!
When You Can’t Get Out, Get Up!
With pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween candy also comes the promise of cold weather and earlier sunsets. With the winter months ahead, it is crucial to remember the importance of working out even if you can’t get out. Helium Trampoline Park has tons of activities for you and your children to enjoy without getting bored. From games like basketball and dodgeball to our trampolines and obstacle courses, there is no shortage of fun and exercise. We may not be able to get outside and play for the winter so we must remember to get our exercise elsewhere.
How Exercise Helps Children in School
There’s no end to the ways exercise can help children do better in school, but here are a few of our favorites.
1. A combination of motor skills and aerobic fitness improves academics
2. Exercise creates more efficient white matter and brain connectivity
3. Exercise before school improves focus and reduces ADHD symptoms
4. Physical activity should remain playful for best results
5. Boys can especially benefit from regular physical activity
6. Taking “brain breaks” during class improves classroom performance
7. After-school exercise groups can improve cognitive function
8. Resistance training and lifting weights can improve memory
Take a Brain Break at Helium Park
Whether it’s basketball, dodgeball, trampoline or trapeze, we have something that the whole family will enjoy.

We’re all a part of this community and should be helping as much as we can to make The Quad Cities a better place to live. It was time for us to start giving back more and that’s how the idea of partnering with Best Buddies came to be.
Helium Trampoline Park will now be partnering with the Best Buddies program the second Wednesday of every month for Buddy Bounce. Members of the Best Buddies Program will jump at a discounted rate with their buddy – 90 Minutes of Jump time for $8/jumper. Buddies will have a blast jumping together, forming friendships and conquering the Best Buddies mission. We’re excited to bring this program to Eldridge!

It’s hard to convince yourself to go on a run every day. And it takes a while to get in the mood even when you start running! What if there was an exercise you looked forward to every week! If you’re looking for an affordable, effective yet FUN workout, AIRobics is right up your alley! We hear three big questions about AIRobics all the time, and wanted to get the answers out there so everyone can start benefitting!
How does AIRobics work?
Our AIRobics classes combine calisthenics (gymnastic exercises), core exercises and aerobics for a well-rounded workout – called rebounding. Your class will be held right on the trampoline floor of Helium Trampoline Park guided by our fitness experts.
When are the classes? And how much?
Our AIRobics classes take place Saturday mornings from 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM. Can’t find someone to watch your little one? NO worries! AIRobics classes are only $10 per session, AND your purchase includes a free Jump admission during class time for one child over 5 years & 36″+ tall!
What are the benefits of AIRobics?
Research shows rebounding increases bone density and muscle mass. It was first used by NASA to prepare astronauts for the zero-gravity conditions of space travel. But if that’s not enough for you here are 12 more benefits!
- Burns more calories than running
- Strengthens & detoxifies all cells in your body
- Works all major muscle groups
- Low-Impact easy on the joints
- Promotes oxygen efficiency
- Strengthens your heart and lungs
- Improves immune function
- Enhances balance and flexibility
- Increases muscles strength and endurance
- Builds and maintains strong bones

AIRobics is FUN, healthy and just a quick drive away. We believe in it and can’t wait to see you!
Group lock-ins, camp-ins, and overnight trips in the Quad Cities can be hard to come by. Bad weather can keep you inside, when all your group wants to do is go camping! That’s why Helium Trampoline Park, decided to start hosting indoor camping events!
We offer the best group overnight camp-ins for scouts, church groups, or any other organization. A night sleeping on trampolines is one your group won’t soon forget. Clip and climb, Laser Maze, and soon Mini Bowling will all be available to add-on to your trip!
Here’s a basic timeline of what you’ll experience at an overnight trip at Helium.
- Your group arrives to check in and get started. You will have a chance to jump around play on the trampolines. It’s the perfect way to start off the night. Once you’ve had time to jump around, we’ll bring pizza to your group. Because what’s better than pizza and trampolines?
- What’s camping without the classic camping snack? We’ll bring out supplies for indoor s’mores! It will be like you’re camping outside, but you don’t have to worry about the weather.
- Next, it’s on to the movies! Our movies that is. Our big screen TVs will show a movie appropriate for your age group. The movie will run up until bedtime and you’ll find a comfortable spot on the trampolines to get a good night’s sleep. (Make sure you bring a sleeping bag!)
- When you wake up in the morning, breakfast will be provided before we say goodbye.
Adult chaperones are required for this overnight trip but don’t worry, chaperone admission will be free subject to our guidelines! We want to make sure everyone stays safe and has a great time. Call us today to get more information about our group overnight trips in the Quad Cities area!
