With help from his friends, former New England Patriot Ty Law opened Rhode Island’s first indoor trampoline park, appropriately named “Ty Law’s Launch Trampoline Park.”
Law, along with co-owners Rob and Erin Arnold, held a grand opening ceremony at the park, located at 105 Pace Boulevard in Warwick, Friday. It opened at 10 a.m., and by 2:30 p.m. more than 1,000 people of all ages had already literally bounced off the walls, as approximately 160 trampolines cover about 9,000 square feet, plus the walls. The facility closed at midnight.
“I thought it was something that Warwick can use,” Law said. “It’s the perfect location; it’s central to Rhode Island, so I wanted to give everybody a chance to experience it and that’s why I put it here.”
Former New England Patriots cornerback Ty Law has jumped aboard the trend as well, lending his name to Launch Trampoline Park, which will open on Pace Boulevard in Warwick on Nov. 23. The facility, a joint venture with Rob Arnold, owner of Efficient Exteriors in Hopkinton, will feature 10,000 square feet of connected trampolines, as well as dodge ball, a foam pit, an arcade, café and 17 large-screen televisions.
Launch already has reservations for 100 birthday parties, according to marketing and advertising director Mark Murphy, but he said bouncing on trampolines isn’t just child’s play. The facilities are also booked by corporations, sports organizations and youth groups and colleges, with people of all ages enjoying a little exercise and wholesome fun without spending a lot of money.
