Kidwise Magic Circle Octogon Trampoline
The ‘Kid’ in this trampoline’s title is a misnomer since its superior construction makes it one of the best trampolines for adults.
This is an octagon trampoline– a less common shape that makes a good choice for both experienced and inexperienced jumpers credit to its even distribution of pressure that is made possible by its 8 straight sides.
This excellent pressure distribution means that unlike in a rectangular tramp where all sides work independent of each other, jumpers on the Kidwise Magic Circle are less likely to be thrown off-balance.
The Kidwise Magic Circle is made of 14 gauge galvanized steel frame and legs with a thickness of 0.078 inches and a diameter of 1.9 inches. Just so you know how strong this rig is, it offers a weight limit of 450 pounds while most of its competitors only allow 200-250 pounds.
This high weight limit coupled with the massive jumping surface means that the Kidwise can accommodate most adults or multiple kids at once.
This thing is also amazingly bouncy thanks to the 112 springs that measure 8.5 inches long each. So, whether you’ll be riding on it for fun, or you want to hone your gymnastic skills, this tramp has space and bounce for that.
Worth noting is that this trampoline’s price does not include a safety net. So remember to add it to the cart before checking out.
- Very sturdy
- Massive jumping surface
- Good amount of bounce
- Relatively easy to set up
- Price does not include a safety net
Skywalker 15-feet Round Trampoline
At a much lower price point than what the Kidwise comes at, enter the Skywalker Trampolines 15-feet round trampoline for adults and kids.
This is one of the most popular tramps around the internet today and ships with everything that you need to bounce your way to fitness. The package includes the tramp, a safety enclosure net, and a spring-pulling tool to make assembly easy.
The Skywalker 15-foot trampoline is round in shape and this means that it tends to gravitate the jumper towards the center and away from the hard edges for safety purposes.
This piece of yard fun is incredibly stable. The frame and legs have been crafted from galvanized rust-repelling steel for durability, and the 6 legs are w-shaped to offer added stability.
The upper frame which consists of 6 enclosure net support poles interlocks with the main frame via reinforced t-sockets to prevent structural twisting and ensure that the netting enclosure remains safe. On the same note, the net attaches to the heavy duty trampoline mat via V-rings to eliminate all gaps and to put the jumpers away from the springs.
This trampoline is rated at 200-pound single user jumper’s weight capacity. While this is relatively limiting for most adults, we’ve heard of users who put it over 300 pounds on it without an issue.
- Relatively affordable
- UV-resistant construction materials make it durable
- Feels stable and sturdy
- 200-pound weight limit is limiting
Zupapa TUV Approved Trampoline + Accesories
For those who are looking for an affordable trampoline for adults, the TUV-approved 2019 upgraded Zupapa might be a great option.
This is one of the highest rated trampolines on the market today not necessarily because of its affordability but because of its functionality.
The first thing that impressed our review team is all the accessories that this adult trampoline comes with. The price of this plaything gets you the tramp, 2 spring-pulling tools, a ladder, 6 wind stakes, 2 pairs of gloves, a rain cover, and an enclosure net. Phew! Yes, all of these in one package. In my opinion, this is the best deal that you could ever get on a trampoline.
While what we are reviewing here is the 15-foot size model, the Zupapa is also available in 12-foot and 14-foot sizes to fit all budgets and available space.
Regardless of the size, all these trampolines have been engineered from the same construction materials, so you are assured of excellent quality with each model.
The rig is made of 1.65’’ deep galvanized steel frame with a thickness of 0.05 inches. Importantly, the legs and poles are bungled together at 2 places to make the frame real heavy-duty and to support the manufacturer-recommended 330-maximum weight capacity.
- Lots of freebies included (ladder, wind stakes, rain cover, net, and gloves)
- Feels a lot sturdier
- Very affordable for its performance
- Net attaches outside leaving the spring system inside the jumping surface
Acon Trampoline Air 16 Sport HD
The Acon Air 16 Sport HD is for homeowners who don’t mind digging a little deeper into their pockets for the best heavy duty trampoline for adults.
When this Finnish manufacturer says that it has designed and built the Air 16 Sport like a tank, know that they mean every word for it.
With a diameter of 2.4 inches and a thickness of 0.1 inches, this trampoline’s steel frame, legs, and poles are the thickest that we’ve come across so far. They make the Acon Air 16 extremely heavy duty and also make it hard for us to doubt the infinite single-user weight limit that the manufacturer promises.
This model is also one of the largest rectangular adult trampoline that we have here measuring 10’ by 17’ and also the bounciest thanks to its shape and the 140 10-inch springs used to attach the mat to the frame. Mind you, this number of springs plus the length is the best combination that the market has so far.
In addition, and to complement the heavy-duty frame and springs, the Acon Air 16 is fitted with a heavy duty trampoline mat that has been cross sewn 10 times for excellent performance and durability.
- Extremely heavy-duty
- Has no weight limit
- Incredibly bouncy
- Very durable
- Costs a pretty penny
Our search for the top of the line trampolines for adults led us to the Skybound Stratos- a tramp that screams quality from the moment you get it out of the package, to the time you make your first bounce.
To begin with, let’s first admit that this tramp has an impressive design away from the rather too common round frame with a blue net and spring pad that we are used to.
This tramp comes in 12, 14, and 15-foot sizes and has a heavy-duty frame made from a thick galvanized stainless steel frame that has been completely welded and powder-coated to resist rusting. The 10-year warranty that this frame comes with is a telltale of the quality of construction used for it.
Skybound seems to have done a great job with the enclosure system too. This model uses 12 poles (not 6) to ensure that the net stays put all the time. The net, on the other hand, has a concave design that besides adding to the design also ensures that even the most rambunctious jumpers won’t fly out or hit the padded enclosure poles.
We cannot also fail to recognize the great amount of bounce that the Stratos offers with its 84+ 8.5’’ premium gold springs.
- Eye-catching design
- Very bouncy
- Holds up extremely well
- Very sturdy
- Assembly takes time and the instructions aren’t so clear
JumpSport 250 Mini Trampoline
Do you wish to take your fitness training a notch higher but don’t have enough budget or space for a full-size trampoline? A heavy duty mini trampoline for adults might be all you need and Jumpsport, one of the best trampoline brands based in the USA, has them in plenty.
What we are looking at here is the Jumpsport 250- the second most affordable mini rebounder from this manufacturer and a great choice for novice jumpers.
This adult size trampoline is built on a 39-inch steel frame with a lifetime warranty and has 6 arched legs that prevent it from tipping over during the most extreme workouts. The legs have also been capped to prevent the rebounder from moving during exercises and to prevent scratching your floors.
The Jumpsport 250 has a bounce area of 485 sq. in. and a total workout area of 1030 sq. in. with the skirt. There is also an option to attach a handlebar that makes this adult fitness trampoline much safer when jogging or doing squats.
A great feature that you’ll definitely appreciate is that the Jumpsport 250 uses 30 cords in place of springs. This makes it even safer and much quieter since there are no squeaks. In addition, this design also means that you can use this rebounder indoors without disturbing the rest.
- Easy to put together
- Usable both indoors and outdoors
- Cords make it quiet
- Requires very little space
- Cords may be expensive to replace in the long run
Since we are talking about trampolines that can accommodate adults, the first thing that you want to consider will be the construction quality of the frame and legs.
Is the frame heavy-duty enough to withstand your weight without twisting dangerously or even crumbling down?
One way of determining the sturdiness of the rig is to consider the thickness of the metal used for the frame and legs and its diameter. The best trampolines for adults use 12 to 14 gauge stainless steel tube.
It’s also important to consider the number of legs and their shape too. Usually, a larger trampoline requires more legs to ensure the stability of the entire fun tool. W-shaped legs have been found to make tramps very stable even with the bounciest jumpers on board.
While the frame is the most important component when buying a trampoline for adults, it means nothing if the mat is of poor quality.
When determining the quality of the mat, consider the number of stitches (more stitching means more strength) not only for the mat itself but for the v-rings that connect the mat to the spring system.
The question of whether you need to install a net for your adult trampoline boils down to your experience level and who else will be riding on the tramp. Although most trampolines now ship with the enclosure net from the factory, some brands including Kidwise make that a personal choice.
Regardless of how experienced you are though, we really advise you to get a net for your trampoline more so if you have kids around.
Of course, the shape of the trampoline determines a whole lot of things from the ease of placement to the amount of bounce and cost.
Round trampolines are the most popular and a little safer too. These models tend to pull the jumper towards the center of the mat and away from the hard edges thereby lowering the risk of injuries should a stunt go wrong. The only issue is that they are a bit hard to place especially around corners and near obstacles.
Rectangle and square tramps are your best bet if you are looking for the best adult trampoline for bounce. These models are easy to place in narrow backyards and near obstacles. However, keep in mind that the best of these tend to cost a pretty penny.
So, which is the best adult trampoline this year? If you don’t mind its high price tag, the Acon Air 16 Sport HD is our best recommendation not only because of its futuristic design, but its infinite single-user weight limit too.
If you want something different from the norm, check out the best-rated hexagonal –shaped Kidwise Magic Circle; it’s huge, bouncy, and sturdily built to accommodate most adults.
For those who want an exercise tool that they can use both indoors during winter, and outdoors during summer, you can’t say no to the Jumpsport 250!
There are no limitations though. We believe our collection of the best trampolines for adults has a tramp for everyone.
