ORLAND PARK – Orland Park Police shut down a popular Trampoline Park Saturday night following an alleged fight and occupancy violations.
Police arrived on the scene at Sky Zone Trampoline Park late last night to observe a large gathering of minors at the business, which was hosting a lock-in event. Officers shut-down the event citing maximum occupancy violations and sent everyone in attendance home, including the juveniles. Officers remained at the scene until everyone had left the area.
Police report Sky Zone Trampoline Park was cited for a number of violations, including two for reckless conduct and one fire code occupancy violation. Orland Park Mayor Keith Pekau called the incident a “very concerning” event which “jeopardized public health” in the area.
“Last night’s event at Sky Zone is very concerning, especially considering the threat posed to the children,” Mayor Keith Peaku said. “Intentional and willful acts that jeopardize public health, safety and welfare, and that are in clear violation of the Village Code and other laws have no place in our community. The Village has started the procedure necessary to begin the process of revoking Sky Zone’s business license,” Pekau said.
No time-frame was given for a proposed shutdown of the business. Sky ZoneTrampoline Park has six area businesses located in Elmhurst, Joliet, Vernon Hills, Aurora, Orland Park and Schererville, Indiana.
