SHORT PUMP, Va. — Short Pump has shopping. It has restaurants. Now a local developer wants to bring trampolines, zip lines and climbing walls to the busy commercial district.

An investor group that includes local development firm Stanley Shield Partnership is planning a 40,000-square-foot adventure sports facility at 205 Towne Center West Boulevard, just west of Short Pump Town Center.

Dubbed Boomerang Air Sports, the center will look to open this fall with a trampoline course, “ninja warrior” obstacle courses, suspended rope courses, climbing walls, stunt towers, professional stunt air bags, a laser maze, zip lines and other activities.

“Boomerang will be the ultimate indoor air-sports park,” said Henry Shield of Stanley Shield. “We believed for years that there’s tremendous demand in Short Pump for an indoor family-centric park.”

Shield said his company is working with a partner that owns other so-called “air sports” parks outside of Virginia that are each independently owned and under different names. He would not name the other party involved.
