TEST YOUR NINJA WARRIOR SKILLS
WHEN YOU WALK INTO ZavaZone
in Rockville, it’s decision time. To the
right, there’s a course that looks like
it’s straight out of the TV show
American Ninja Warrior. Parkour obstacles that
require jumping are to the left, trampolines to the back.
Josh Oboler, a managing partner at
ZavaZone, says his two daughters used
to argue about whether to go to a tram-
poline gym or a climbing wall, so he
decided to open a place that has both—
Eileen Weller, 43, of Chevy Chase,
brought her kids to ZavaZone in August
after they’d been there for a friend’s party.
“They all wanted to come back here,” she
says. “They’ve been begging me.”
And it’s not just for kids—Oboler says
he has seen adults standing by and
watching their kids one day, and then
wearing their own harnesses on the
ropes course a few days later.
ZavaZone is open from 4 to 8 p.m.
Tuesday through Friday, and from 10 a.m.
to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admis-
sion is $19.50 for one hour, $34 for two
hours, $44 for three and $54 for four.
