Whether you’re looking to increase your vitality, get your kids back to being kids, or even amp up your sporting career, we’ve taken a look at some of the best trampolines on the market today and organized them into different categories.
So even if you’re not planning to break the world record of 10 backflip jumps in 7 seconds – keep reading – because we’re pretty sure we have just what you need.
Good: With safety net poles that extend down to the ground and no gap between the jumping mat and spring cover, this trampoline has the best safety and stability features of all the top-selling trampolines.
Not so good: Although not by a high margin, it’s more expensive than others.
Bottom Line: Safety should come first while still learning the ropes, so we are confident in making this our choice for the best recreational trampoline overall.
Good: Capable of creating powerful rebound effects for very high jumps. Professional build quality.
Not so good: Its price puts it outside the reach of novices who only need a fun trampoline for the family.
Bottom Line: If you’re serious about your trampolining and want to invite your friends to use it, this is the option for you.
Good: It is well-built, extremely sturdy, and can handle extreme weather. Good quality for a fair price.
Not so good: It doesn’t have many extra features or unique qualities that make it stand out from the crowd.
Bottom Line: Durability is undoubtedly its strongest point, and with above-average weight capacity, it’s a very good option for adults and older kids.
Good: The safety net is inside of the springs, which costs room but is safer. Its built-in basketball net adds an element of fun to your trampolining experience.
Not so good: The springs are reinforced and rust-resistant, but other trampolines of similar size have more of them.
Bottom Line: The attention the designers paid to both fun and safety makes this a reliable option for people with children – all at an affordable price point.
Good: With a low design, padded springs, and safety poles, Sportspower took safety seriously when designing this entry-level trampoline.
Not so good: The safety net opening is a little uncomfortable for getting on and off the trampoline.
Bottom Line: Small enough for toddlers yet big enough for preschoolers, this is a good trampoline for children of various ages.
Good: This affordable, well-built trampoline has a seamless net attachment for added safety.
Not so good: It doesn’t provide as much bounce as some other trampolines and has a disappointing 200-pound weight limit.
Bottom Line: The mild rebound effect and added safety features make it an excellent choice for small children.
Good: Sturdy construction and long springs mean that it will last a long time while continuing to create great rebound for high jumps.
Not so good: Its weight limit is much less than one would expect from an advanced trampoline.
Bottom Line: At this price, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better trampoline if a high bounce is important to you.
Good: The padded handlebar and elastic-based spring system make this one of the safest trampolines for small children.
Not so good: It has only a 100-pound weight maximum and a small jump surface, which means that multiple children will not be able to use it together.
Bottom Line: A good choice for parents who want to let their toddlers bounce safely for entertainment and exercise.
Good: It can hold up to 800 pounds, making it suitable for several jumpers at a time.
Not so good: Though users say it’s very sturdy, it has only four legs, making us worry about its stability under some circumstances.
Bottom Line: For the adventurous adult who doesn’t need a sport-level trampoline.
Good: It has a small built-in basketball hoop, and you can buy additional game sets (like football and beanbag toss).
Not so good: The 200-pound weight capacity means many adults won’t be able to use it at all, much less together with their children.
Bottom Line: A decent choice for parents who would like something entertaining for the kids.
