Work is under way near York at a new trampoline retail operation owned by a company with facilities throughout the U.S.

Texas-based Altitude Trampoline Park will offer jumping, dodgeball, fitness classes and competitive jumping at the Commerce Center off White Street in West Manchester Township.

In a press release Dorgan & Zuck Building Contractors Inc. said it has been working on the nearly 30,000-square-foot space since mid-December.

Altitude, founded in 2012, is based in Colleyville, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. Its operations include facilities in the U.S., Europe and Puerto Rico, according to the company’s website. It has plans to open a location in Pittsburgh, and it already has a facility in Feasterville, which is north of Philadelphia.

West Manchester Township approved a building permit last fall, according to the permit posted at the building, which is a site that has been empty since T.J. Maxx moved across Carlisle Road and into a space at Delco Plaza. Altitude will sit between a Big Lots store and Red Wing Shoes at Commerce Center.

Officials with Altitude could not be reached for comment.

The mid-state has at least two competitors, both of them Sky Zone Trampoline Parks. One is in Hampden Township, Cumberland County, and the other is off Hempstead Road in East Lampeter Townhip, Lancaster County.

The trampoline park industry brings in about $1 billion in sales annually, with about 700 parks worldwide, according to a 2016 Los Angeles Times report.
