Urban Air Adventure Park opening new locations in Southlake and North Fort Worth, Texas with multi-story carting and indoor skydiving


Urban Air Adventure Park has announced the opening of its new Southlake location at 2201 W. Southlake Blvd., Southlake, TX. The grand opening features a brand-new attraction to Urban Air, nearly 850-feet of motorsport track on two levels with 180-degree curves and controlled Kart speeds up to 40mph. These recreational indoor Go-karts are a first of its kind in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and join a host of other attractions at Urban Air Southlake.

“Southlake’s grand opening holds a special place in our hearts at Urban Air,” said Michael Browning, Urban Air’s Chief Executive Officer.” “It’s the location where we opened our very first Park 8 years ago. Since then, we have grown to 175 additional locations which are open or under construction. Southlake has an amazing portfolio of attractions which includes our latest product, high performance electric Go-karts.”

The new adventure park located in North Fort Worth at 9157 Harmon Road, opening January 5, 2019, will allow people of all ages to defy gravity and take flight in a safe, comfortable vertical wind tunnel. Guests will complete a 20-minute pre-flight class with certified instructors where they learn the basics of human flight before gearing up in a flight suit to experience free fall without jumping out of an airplane. Skilled riders with previous experience can reach exhilarating heights in the tunnel located in the heart of the Park allowing spectators a great vantage point to take pictures and cheer on their friends.

“This is a major announcement for Urban Air. We are using patented, innovative technology to give our guests a world-class experience,” said Urban Air Chief Executive Officer Michael Browning. “What makes this encounter unique is that park patrons can choose to skydive only, or they can fly in addition to enjoying an array of other attractions and signature rides. Weather is never a factor and we have made indoor skydiving an affordable option for a normally expensive sport.”

Additional attractions at both Urban Air Adventure Centers include:

Sky Rider Indoor Coaster – Urban Air’s signature indoor coaster which zigzags overhead while riders look down on the other attractions below

Tubes Indoor Playground – Soft play area for little racers age 9 & under

Ropes Course – Extra hang time while you test your balance

Leap of Faith – A harnessed free fall tower

Warrior Obstacle Course – Four lanes of American Ninja style obstacles

Dodge Ball – You’ll never want to play “old” dodge ball again

Wipeout – Battle that moving beam as you jump to victory

Climbing Walls – Free climb with secure safety harnesses

The Parks also include a full-service café with both wine and beer offered and a parent lounge which has free Wi-Fi and several big screen televisions to watch sports and topical news. Urban Air boasts several birthday party rooms which offer mom and dad a stress-free indoor celebration for children of all ages. This safe, fun and affordable option includes your own party host and a special appearance by Urbie, the lovable mascot at Urban Air. The Park is ideal for corporate events with a team-building focus and special events.
