The growth of Urban Air over the years has been nothing short of exponential, and now Fort Worth finally has its own location.

The new Urban Air in north Fort Worth is located at 9157 Harmon Road, behind the Presidio Junction restaurant and retail development. It officially opened in February, and spokesperson Dak Hatfield said it has been extremely successful since opening.

Urban Air started as a trampoline park in Southlake in 2011. In the eight years since then, the company has grown and expanded from more than just trampolines and more than just a location in Southlake. Urban Air now has 267 centers in development worldwide, and more of them are coming to Fort Worth.

Last year, Urban Air also moved into the indoor skydiving business, a trend reflected in other experiential retail entertainment centers, like Altitude Trampoline Park, Flight Deck Trampoline Park and iFly.
