We bought this for our 8 year old autistic son. We live in the Chicago area so we were able to go the the showroom. We were reluctant to spend so much on a trampoline but we have gone thru many of them. This will be our last one. This thing is built to last, gives great bounce and is super quiet. We bought the soft bounce bungees and we will trade them out for medium bounce as our son grows. Nice people that work there too, in the showroom and in the factory where we picked it up.
