Jump, Jump, Jump into the Season
At Sacramento Sky High Sports, every season is the time for Jumping into family fun! Make memories this holiday season at the Kids Court, Sky High Hoops, Sky High Dodgeball, Arcade, and the Freestyle Courts.
Our Sky High Klime Wallz, inspired by pop art, geometric shapes, playground classics and ninja warriors, is up and ready for face off! The walls utilize a hydraulic auto belay system, which not only acts as a safety precaution in case guests fall but also helps them descend back to the ground once they reach the top.
The Klime Wallz is perfect for those who have never climbed before and are looking to step out of their comfort zone. So what are you waiting for? Come out and challenge your friends and see who can get to the top first!
Come out and join in the fall fun for the entire family at Sky High Sports!
