This entry is the fifth in our category of “Austin Gems” (see the side bar on the right). You’ve walked/biked/jogged/ran the trails at Zilker and you’ve even rented a kayak to paddle around Lady Bird Lake. But there are other physical activites that fewer people take the time to enjoy. Here’s one that we recommend you try at least once.
Ever wonder what it would be like to join the circus and swing high up in the big top on a trapeze? Flip, spin, and twist as you float from bar to bar? Find a partner to catch you and launch you spinning back to the bar you started on? Well, here’s your chance. Trapeze Austin offers the chance for everyday people to try a unique and physically rewarding activity that once was reserved for circus performers and the occassional backyard thrill seeker. At Trapeze Austin, you’ll receive training and instruction while you test your skills and challenge your fears while becoming a trapeze artist for a day.
Located inside Soccerzone near the corner of Manchaca and Slaughter, Trapeze Austin offers a variety of classes and packages to please any level of participant. Individual or groups can enjoy an energizing experience that would make a great YouTube video to send out to your friends, family, and acquaintances. They offer frequent-flyer packages for the addicted and exclusive group class offerings that you could use as a company team-building exercise or a very unique birthday party for your rambunctious teenager.
Visit their website at www.trapezeaustin.com for all the details, class schedules, and contact information. If you’ve ever been, we’d love to hear from you in the comment section below. If you go because of this posting, please email some pictures or a link to your YouTube video to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post them here on the blog.
Now, if I could just get up the courage to do it myself…
