Spikes were too expensive, and the logistics of a piranha-filled moat were just too much.

I still don't understand how trampolines are not outlawed.  They're horrible accidents just waiting to happen.

A friend in high school broke her neck on the trampoline.  (lived, but had one of those cage things around her head for a while).  This was like 30 years ago.

Gymnastics studios use them with relatively few injuries. Stupidity is what should be outlawed.

Not saying your friend was stupid, but I would wager someone did something dumb.

Buddy of mine had a totally normal kid, until he brought home a trampoline.  Kid took a header, broke his neck which caused a stroke, is special needs now and in a wheelchair for life.

Dad is somewhat OK, he can go out drinking and seem normal.  But he's not right and never will be again.

I don't screw around with trampolines, to me they're death traps along the same line as Jarts.

The problem isn't stupidity, IMO as much as naivete.

Actually it's not the trampoline that's the issue, it's the non bouncy edges that hurt you (or the ground).  Indoor trampoline parks are pretty popular around chicago, and there's little danger because there are no edges, there are angled trampoline walls with padding

Yada yada helicopter parents and everything.  But I've always thought that trampolines are the single most insanely dangerous thing kids can have.  And these kids demonstrate exactly what multiplies the risk into the certain-injury category:  Jumping too high, combined with more than one kid at a time.

Yeah, I guess I'm one of those helicopter parents - although I honestly don't think many would describe me that way.  I just have a thing about trampolines.  My dad was and ER doc and used to talk a lot about the injuries he saw from trampolines.  And, contrary to what was said a few posts up, lots of the worst injuries (i.e.,spinal injuries) are not from the "non bouncy edges" but are from the trampoline itself.  He let us jump, and I let my kids jump when they're at friends' houses.  But we keep a pretty close eye on things to make sure they're not getting too out of hand.

I'd be very curious to know the number of trampoline related injuries compared to lawn darts (mentioned up-thread).
