Are you ready to jump, soar, flip, and fly?
Then you need to head over to Defy Bradenton today! This enormous “extreme air sports park” is Bradenton’s newest spot for indoor fun, and it’s an awesome experience for kids and adults.
Since it opened on August 4th, Defy has already made its mark as one of the best things to do in Bradenton. It features over a dozen different activities for various skill levels, so you can push your limits and have fun in ways you never imagined.
According to general manager Spencer Wright, the Bradenton location was specially designed to cater to the large number of gymnasts and aerialists in the Bradenton area. From the Olympic-sized trampolines to the aerial silks and trapeze set-ups, both professionals and amateurs can practice and perfect their skills here.
