A lease has been signed to bring Vertical Jump Park to the mall complex in Erie, Pennsylvania.  It is scheduled to debut in December, 2017 in the space formerly occupied by Gander Mountain.  It takes the traditional fun of trampolines to an entirely new level.  In addition to the 12,000 square foot main jumping area, patrons will enjoy a rock-climbing wall, dodgeball courts, slam-dunk courts, a foam jousting pit and a high-jump feature that makes everyone feel like a stunt performer.  A concession stand will satisfy the need to refresh and refuel.  

At more than 31,000 square feet, this new entertainment facility will be the largest of an expanding portfolio of Vertical Jump Parks operated by PDF Development LLC, which has already introduced the concept in both Kentucky and Iowa.  “We’re thrilled to be bringing our special brand of entertainment to the Millcreek Mall Complex” said Brent Fortner, Co-owner of Vertical Jump Park. “We are confident that people will enjoy it immensely.  There’s nothing like it anywhere else in the area.”

Vertical Jump Park is the perfect destination for a high-energy date or group activities.  Three private rooms are available for parties and there will be organized summer camps for younger children. The new location will add to the array of family entertainment options at the Millcreek Mall Complex. “We think it’s a perfect complement to the huge selection of retailers, restaurants, hotels and specialty services that the mall complex already offers.” said Anthony Cafaro, Jr., Co-President of the mall’s parent company.   

Millcreek Mall Complex is located on upper Peach Street and Interstate 79 in Millcreek Township, near Erie, Pennsylvania.  It has been serving the community since 1975 and has been expanded and renovated numerous times, keeping it up-to-date with current regional mall uses, trends and occupancies. The complex currently comprises more than 2 million square feet of shopping, lodging, dining and entertainment.  Vertical Jump Park joins a growing lineup of popular offerings, including a new Boscov’s department store opening in early October, 2017.  For more information, visit  Millcreek Mall Complex is owned and managed in association with Cafaro Company affiliated entities, based in Niles, Ohio.  To learn more about the Cafaro family of companies, go to
