While it may sound best to say that it’s always sunny in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, the truth is that it does rain from time to time. While the sunny days far outweigh rainy ones (Myrtle Beach is blessed with 215 sunny days a year), it can be frustrating to see clouds begin to form over what was planned as a perfect beach day.

While the Rockin Jump Ultimate Trampoline Park is a GREAT rainy day activity in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, it’s really perfect for any weather. I stopped by recently with my (younger) friend Bre. She goes a lot, so I figured she would be best to give an official review! Rockin Jump is the area’s first indoor trampoline park and has something for everybody. The park is home to large open jump spaces, a challenge course, a vertical ops wall, dodgeball, a foam pit and more. Bre’s favorite part is the open jump space, but my favorite was the…
