“Ninja Warrior” recreation park CircusTrix jumps into South Florida

30k sf indoor rec center will be part of a proposed West Palm shopping center

Indoor recreational chain CircusTrix has announced plans to open its “extreme” obstacle course and trampoline park in South Florida.

The plans are part of the proposed 68,728-square-foot, three-building retail center at 874 South Congress Avenue in Palm Springs, the South Florida Business Journal reported. The 7.3-acre vacant site is owned by High Point on Congress LLC, which is under contract to sell the property to McLain Group. It will include 346 parking spaces.

CircusTrix will take up the largest building to fit its indoor athletic courses. The 30,000-square-foot indoor recreational park will include open trampoline jumping grounds, ninja obstacle courses, rock wall climbing, dodgeball, stunt falls, trapeze swings, zip lines, and trampoline basketball, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

The two other buildings will add 30,728 square feet to the shopping center. A 4,800-square-foot building will be home to a MJ Pizzeria with 204 seats and 2,000 square feet of outdoor seating. The second building, which will have 25,928 square feet, will be general retail.

The CircusTrix recreation park was featured on NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” and is expected to open in Palm Springs later this year, according to its website. The chain has locations in Port St. Lucie, Daytona and Lakeland.

The Palm Springs Land Development Board will review the shopping strip’s application, designed by Arkansas-based architect Eric Jon Nielsenin, on Tuesday.

Lime Fresh Mexican Grill also announced plans to expand to West Palm Beach. The Miami Beach-born restaurant concept is heading to at least five new spaces including West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens.

The development of CircusTrix and Lime locations goes hand-in-hand with the county’s goal of attracting new businesses and millennials, as discussed during a real estate development and investment forum held in March. Challenges include a lack of available commercial space and increased traffic. [SFBJ] —  Amanda Rabines
