Defy Orlando REVIEW

Share Our Happy!!

Back in 2018, my two younger daughters went on a field trip to Defy Orlando. At the time it was newly opened. Sadly, I was not able to participate with them, but I know I would have had a blast. Our teens share their Defy Orlando review with you, and we hope it’s helpful.

Defy Orlando Video Review

What is Defy Orlando?

First, Defy Orlando is an indoor trampoline park, but that’s not all. Not only do they have lots of different trampoline areas, but Ninja Warrior type obstacles too. Our girls have not had much exposure with these types of obstacle adventure opportunities, but they were pretty fearless in checking out all the different areas.

The Many Areas of Fun Review

Defy Orlando swings into foam pits

There are plenty of cube foam pits with jumping areas that include platforms, ramps, swings and even a trapeze bar to swing from and let go of, into the pit. Joe loved the swings!!

In addition, there are trampolines next to foam pits to bounce into. Both of these were on Anna’s list of favorites!! 

Defy Orlando trampolines that go up the wall

I call this trampoline road. Lots of connected trampolines and even ones that go up the wall!! 

trampolines with walls

These were some tough trampolines Anna tried. The workers were showing the kids how bounce on their back, then touch their feet to the wall (kind of like standing up), then down on their back again. You can see Anna trying it in the video. It’s tough. 

Defy Orlando Spinner with foam pit

Our friends’ kids spent lots of time on these platforms with the spinning bars. A worker would control the speed, so it was mixed up. The kids had to either jump over, or duck under as the bars came around. This one brings lots of laughs!! 

Defy Orlando Review of obstacle course

Check out this ninja warrior obstacle area!! The kids were all challenging and encouraging each other to push themselves to the next area. Add this on the list of Josephine’s favorites!! 

Defy Orlando review of rings and foam pits

There’s another great obstacle area with pits to jump and swing over with arial silks or rings, small walls to climb over, balance beams, and swinging boxing bags to avoid. 

The Wall Review

Next to that is the larger walls you run up. Anna conquered it on her first try!! She was so proud of herself, and this was her favorite!! 

Defy Orlando basketball rims with trampolines

Like basketball? How about shooting some hoops while jumping on trampolines?? Talk about getting air.

Defy Orlando even has a fun selfie spot to get your wing photos!!

Another tough area is the arial silks, tight rope, and a padded round beam to cross that SPINS!! Yes, it spins when you are walking across it!! 

The girls got to compete with each other on the balance beam, while using long padded punch pads to knock each other off too. Although they didn’t get too rough. Not this time anyways.

Is there an area for observers to watch at Defy Orlando?

couches for parents to sit

They have several seating areas for observers, parents, chaperones. The elevated one is great for having a better eye on several children, especially younger ones.

If you travel to the Central Florida area, and are looking for some non-theme park fun, Defy Orlando is a great place!! Especially to take a break from the summer heat. Plus, it’s part of our What to do Around Orlando post.

We already cannot wait to go back, and take more friends. Especially me, since I couldn’t participate this time. 

Tips for visiting

Be prepared to purchase their special skid free socks. We brought some from another trampoline place, but they informed us theirs were made specifically for them, and tested for safety. Once you purchase them, you can bring them with you each time.

Tickets must be purchased online to reserve your time slot.

If you are not going to be jumping, and only be an observer, then you still must add a free observer ticket to your cart to reserve a spot.

    Such a fun place to hang out, especially for kids. I am familiar with the regular foam and trampoline places, but I haven’t seen one that combines that with warrior ninja obstacles before. Although I’d be terrible at all of these, it still looks fun to try!
