Urban Air Adventure to Open in West El Paso
Hey guess what, El Paso? We're finally getting a Six Flags. Kind of. Sorta.
Okay, it's an Urban Air Adventure Park, but they describe themselves as "the Six Flags of the indoor entertainment industry" and that's probably the closest we'll ever get to a Six Flags.
Urban Air announced it will begin converting the former Toys R Us building on S. Mesa Hills in West El Paso into a 50,000 square-foot indoor trampoline/recreation and entertainment center. I think it's quite appropriate that a kid-friendly entertainment venue is going to occupy that building and I'm pretty sure Geoffrey the Giraffe would be more than okay with it.
Bowling, climbing walls, obstacle courses, skydiving, laser tag and go-karting are among the many recreational activities and attractions "the nation’s largest chain of family-oriented indoor theme parks" offers. If you ever want to tire out an active kid, this will definitely be the place to do it in.
Urban Air Adventure Park plans to employ around 60 people, and anticipates it will open sometime this summer.
Admission varies based by location, but El Pasoans can probably expect to pay around $24.99 per child for the top of the line "best value Ultimate Attractions" package.
