Trampoline park, new restaurant planned in Harrisburg

By Jodi Schwan

The owner of Perfect Practice Sports Academy is opening a trampoline park and restaurant in Harrisburg.

Gary Sperber is building Air Madness, a 35,000-square-foot trampoline park attached to the athletic practice facility, which is just off Cliff Avenue. The park will include a variety of trampoline areas, including one for small children, one featuring lasers and a foam pit.

“It will have eight party rooms, a parent room, a Ninja course, mechanical bull and climbing features,” Sperber said. “It will be like nothing these kids have seen.”

In the coming weeks, he also plans to open Game Changer restaurant on the property, which will be an ice cream parlor with a drive-thru, pizzas and coffee. It will seat 50 people, include a patio and also offer food service inside the trampoline park. The restaurant is an original concept and has hired a former chef from Carnaval Brazilian Grill.

The property is planned to include a locally owned women’s boutique as well.

Perfect Practice opened two years ago and “our calendar is full,” Sperber said.

Game Changer Restaurant plans to open in the coming weeks and Air Madness Trampoline Park plans to open in June.

He leases space to Avera for a volleyball program, is adding a basketball program with former USD players Garret Callahan and Josh Mueller and has a child care center that “is going crazy,” he said. Callahan and Mueller also are developing a silk screen and embroidery business within Perfect Practice, he said.

Sperber’s ultimate plan is to develop more trampoline parks in neighboring states.

He plans to hold job fairs soon and hire about 70 people to work at the trampoline park and restaurant.

Sperber also purchased land nearby for an outdoor baseball complex “and all our baseball will be moving to the new outdoor facility,” he said.
