Experience the extraordinary physical exhilaration of flying on the trapeze. Trapeze Austin offers 2 hour classes that will teach you the basics of the art of the flying trapeze.During the beginner-friendly lessons, students get a ground-lesson and then spend most of the class flying through the air. There’s even an opportunity to be caught in mid-air in the first class. Trapeze is a “mountain with no top” so each time you come out, we’ll assist you with taking it to the next level by learning new tricks and developing fundamental skills. All experience levels welcome, ages 6 and up (250lb weight limit).

My friend and I decided to try this just as something fun and different to do. I was nervous that I would have a hard time because I don't have much upper body strength, but you really don't need much because most of the movement...More

My daughter did this with a group that ranged from 17 to 55. They start out by saying you don't need arm strength because it's all done by momentum. I was worried because the older gentleman was a pretty big guy. Turns out that they...More

Booking and the customer service were just fine for me. Getting there, we were told that the class was inside and our kids that were watching would be able to have something to do to keep them occupied. Nope. It's outside. Mosquitos, fire ants and...More
