ZavaZone Fitness and Adventure Park Coming to Maryland


zavazoneRockville, Md., about an hour southwest of Baltimore, is making way for ZavaZone, a 27,000-square-foot indoor adventure park that’s scheduled to open in January 2016. The multi-attraction fun and fitness facility aims to prove that being healthy and exercising doesn’t have to be boring.

“Most places offer only one kind of activity. We’ve got something for everyone. You can choose your adventure, keep it interesting. We wanted to offer a variety of activities that can be enjoyed in one place for one price,” said Joe Henry, ZavaZone co-founder.

ZavaZone is laid out with four unique areas. An 8,000-square-foot Jump Zone includes trampolines, foam pits, basketball nets, and two dodgeball courts. In the Adventure Zone, guests can take part in physical challenges such as a low ropes course catering to younger guests, a high ropes course with 26 obstacles, and a 40-foot zip line. There’s also a ninja warrior course where guests have to run, jump, vault and climb; and a parkour course where the objective is to get from one place to the next without using assistive equipment.

In the Climb Zone, five unique challenges include swaying ropes and a pitch-black tube course. Meanwhile, the Parents Zone offers a healthy snack bar, free wifi and a lounge area with televisions broadcasting live feeds of the park. (Parents, apparently, seek out passive, sedentary environments.)

Given its varied options, ZavaZone plans to host a range of events and activities, including birthday parties, teambuilding events, fundraisers, workout classes, and dance parties.
