A new indoor adventure park is expected to give people in Albuquerque another option for fun this summer. They’ve got locations all over the country and in the United Kingdom.
“I would go. Yeah, it sounds fun. The adrenaline rush. Yeah, something I’d like to do,” says Dawnte Parker.
It doesn’t look like much now, but this summer, the dirt lot next to Main Event will be the new Urban Air Adventure Park.
“It’s very similar to this Main Event,” says James Kruichak.
Kruichak is the Superintendent of James Structure, the company building the new park.
It’s located right next to Main Event near Montgomery and I-25.
Kruichak says they broke ground back in October.
“We’re going to have trampolines and all kinds of rock climbing. Then in the center of the building, there’s a wind tunnel that will mimic skydiving,” he says.
Thomas Garcia, the local owner of Urban Air, says the indoor skydiving will not only be a first for Albuquerque, but a first for the company itself.
“Outdoor skydiving is pretty expensive and more dangerous, scares more people. So I think indoor would be a lot more fun. I would try it out,” says Yu Shao.
The more than $10 million project will also include a dodgeball court, obstacle course, and a skycoaster.
“It is definitely a trend with our millennials right?” says Kruichak.
Albuquerque residents seem to be looking forward to Urban Air’s grand opening.
“Indoor skydiving. That sounds like something that should be fun,” says Tobias Hall.
“I think it’s a good choice for young people. I think some people would love it for sure,” says Shao.
The owner says they should be open in July.
Urban Air will be right across the Interstate from Top Golf, which should also open this year.
