Sky Zone Kennesaw, a Special Needs Certified company, Creates Sensory Friendly Events

Kennesaw, GA – On April 11th, Sky Zone Kennesaw in Georgia will launch a sensory friendly event known as Sky Zone Cares. People with special needs, like autism and cerebral palsy, will fill the trampolines as Sky Zone Kennesaw kicks off a series of sensory-friendly events designed just for them.

Many individuals with special needs cannot attend regular jump times, because they have trouble with things like loud noises, crowds, and bright lights. Sky Zone Cares is a sensory-friendly event on select Tuesdays. They dial down the noise, soften the lighting, increase their staff ratio, and limit the capacity for the enjoyment of their special guests and families!

The decision to host sensory-friendly events is an example of Sky Zone Kennesaw’s ongoing commitment to cater to guests with special needs. Recently, the employees at the Kennesaw location underwent training developed by Special Needs Communities of Atlanta, GA.  The online training educates businesses how to better serve guests with special needs.

“The training provided by Special Needs Communities was easy to learn, watch and share with our team members,” said David VanVurst, Owner/General Manager, Sky Zone Kennesaw. “Our staff now feels more empowered than ever to provide a great experience for everyone, regardless of their abilities.”

Special Needs Communities owner Lindsey Turner is thrilled that Sky Zone Kennesaw is reaching out to individuals with special needs and disabilities.

“Sky Zone Kennesaw’s commitment to wanting to better serve their guests with special needs is an example all businesses and organizations should follow,” said Turner.  “Knowing we have helped educate the team members of Sky Zone Kennesaw means there will be more environments where individuals with special needs and disabilities will be welcomed. This is a great testament that we’re moving closer to our vision of creating a society where everyone, regardless of their abilities, feels love and acceptance.”

Sky Zone Kennesaw will host sensory-friendly events on select Tuesdays. Come and enjoy 60 minutes of jumping during their Sensory Jump time. Tickets can be purchased at the door at the time of the event. ($9/single jumper, $25/Family of 4) SkySocks are required and can be purchased for $2 per pair. (Yours to keep and reuse)
