UPDATE Mar 22, 2019
In our last update on Urban Air Adventure Park in December, they were hiring and would soon be ready for their soft opening. Now they are announcing their Grand Opening March 30th, 2019. They’ve got a big special if you’re one of the first 200 customers to purchase an Ultimate Attraction Pass. See details on their Facebook page.
UPDATE: Dec 10, 2018
Many have you have seen the signs come off the front of the building and have wondered if Urban Air is still going to open – and when will the open? I talked to owner Jerrod Phillips and he assured me they would be opening soon. They took the signs down to get the storefront painted, but the weather has been holding them back a few days for that task.
“Our soft opening will be the later part of January and our grand opening will follow afterwards,” stated Phillips.
They have the permanent sign ready to install after the building is painted. Meanwhile, they are now hiring. Here is a direct link to apply. Click and scroll down to careers. https://www.urbanairtrampolinepark.com/locations/arkansas/benton

ORIGINAL: June 27, 2017
A MySaline reader messaged me this morning, disappointed because she called Hangtime Trampoline Park and the person answering the phone said they would be closing permanently. Well, kids, do not despair…
The City of Benton and the Benton Area Chamber of Commerce announced Wednesday that Jerrod Phillips with Hangtime Trampoline Park is opening the new Urban Air Adventure Park in the old JCPenney’ building at 1512 Military Road in Benton.
If you’re driving by JCP on Friday June 29th at around 11:00 a.m. and you’re wondering what all the fuss is, it’s this announcement. It’s kind of a big deal to fill that building on Military Road, and also a big deal to have the expansion of a local business. Congrats to Jerrod and Diane Phillips!
On June 29, 2018, Hangtime owner Jerrod Phillips made the announcement that he had joined with the Urban Air company to open a location on Military Road, in the former JC Penney building.
The following is a press release from the corporate office of Urban Air:
