Urban Air Lake Grove is unlike any other indoor adventure park anywhere.
"We opened Urban Air Adventure Park in Lake Grove, NY because there was no other park like it on Long Island," says Dave Wolmetz, co-founder of Urban Air Lake Grove. "We wanted to give families a place to get away from screens, to move their muscles and have fun."
Wolmetz and lifelong friend Keith Handler (pictured below, credit LIBN) co-founded Urban Air Lake Grove in 2019 and quickly became the go-to place for kids ages 1 to 15. Offering unique attractions like the Sky Rider, Warrior Course and Ropes Course alongside favorites like trampolines, climbing walls and Spin Zone Bumper Cars, Urban Air Lake Grove surpassed everyone's expectations. A special area called The Tubes Playground – row upon row of indoor climbing and obstacle courses - is set aside just for toddlers.
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic forced Urban Air to close briefly in 2020, but upon reopening in 2021, the park re-established itself as the premier indoor destination for Long Island families from Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Schools and groups caught the Urban Air fever as well and the park hosts hundreds of them every year.
Urban Air Lake Grove has also been voted the #1 place for kids birthday parties on Long Island. Urban Air also hosts Jumperoo for toddlers ages one to five, every Tuesday from 10am to 1pm.
“We wanted to create a family-oriented destination on Long Island so people can get out and active. We know there’s a need for this type of activity platform,” Wolmetz says.
