What do Dr. Seuss, trampolines and family empowerment have in common? Lots apparently, if you ask the kind folks over at Sky Zone Tampa, the original home of wall-to-wall aerial action. 

If you’re a fan of “Cat in the Hat,” “Horton Hears a Hoo” or “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” and whether you read them as a child or read them to your little ones (or both!), the immortal words of Dr. Seuss are the backdrop of many an American childhood. In honor of his birthday, March is celebrated across the country as National Reading Month, when Americans are encouraged to read every day. In Tampa, you can celebrate by bringing a new or gently-used book to Sky Zone during the month of March to receive a 30-minute jump pass to use in April.

Your books will be donated to Achieve Plant City, a nonprofit dedicated to providing educational services to children and families in East Hillsborough County. The organization offers tutoring for children, literacy classes for adults, English lessons, parenting education workshops and a Spanish mobile library, as well as a flagship annual festival. The books collected at Sky Zone will be given to the organization’s members.

“This wonderful donation of books will be provided to support Achieve Plant City’s mission to empower families and help them achieve success through education,” says Jay Highley, owner of Sky Zone Tampa. “The kids are going to love their gifts!”

Please note that there is a limit of two books per customer, but that’s enough to get you two passes! Also, the passes do not include the required Sky Zone socks, but you can always bring yours from a previous visit back in. This offer is only valid at the Sky Zone Tampa location.

Located at 10137 E. Adamo Drive in Tampa, Sky Zone Tampa is part of a growing company of more than 200 franchises all over the world. You can challenge your friends to a gladiator jousting battle or to the Ninja Warrior Course, and see if your agility and strength win out. Or if you’re more of a solo operator, challenge yourself to reach the top of the Freeclimb without any rope or harness, or to climb the curved incline of the Warped Wall or suspend yourself over the foam pit on the Skyladder.

Parents can find more to be happy about at Sky Zone than just their support for literacy. You can also check out their website to learn about their Sky Camps, GLOW nights, Parent’s Night Out events and Homeschool P.E. program. From toddlers to adults, there’s something for everyone at Sky Zone. So stop by and see what makes you jump for joy!
