Baton Rouge site acquired for trampoline park _lowres


A 2-acre tract of land at Siegen Lane and Industriplex Boulevard has been sold for a little more than $1 million to a group that plans to build an indoor trampoline park on the site.

MidSouth Bank sold the land behind its branch at 6677 Siegen Lane to Wilde & Wen Properties LLC, according to documents filed with the East Baton Rouge Clerk of Court’s office Friday.

Phillip Sean Wendell, a principal with Baton Rouge-based Wilde & Wen, said the plan is to build a 26,400-square-foot Sky Zone Indoor Trampoline Park on the site. The park, which officials previously announced would be coming to Baton Rouge, will feature wall-to-wall trampolines.

Peter Busenlener, the local franchisee for Sky Zone, said the Baton Rouge location should be open in the spring. This will be the second south Louisiana Sky Zone for Busenlener, joining one at 3814 Ambassador Caffery Parkway that will open at the end of the year. Plans are also in the works to build a Sky Zone in metro New Orleans.
