Andrew Rocklage is an attorney and a business man like no one else. He received his education at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst – Isenberg School of Management where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and Sports Management.

After he spent several years practicing law with several organizations, such as the Boston Red Sox, Cubist Pharmaceuticals, EPIRUS Biopharmaceuticals and the law firm of Doherty, Wallace, Pillsbury & Murphy, P.C., Rocklage decided to open his own entertainment establishment called “Sky Zone Trampoline Park.”
Rocklage’s time with EPIRUS Biopharmaceuticals was instrumental in giving him the experience he needed to take part in the technological world. He was the corporate counsel for this enterprise, and his years with this company caused him to develop his talents as a technological innovator. This background definitely helped him create the unique experience that people are having at Sky Zone today.
Since its inception in 2015, Sky Zone has grown into a business that includes more than 100 locations across the globe. Sky Zone’s claim to fame is its wall-to-wall trampoline that delights both adults and children. It is unlike any other adventure in the world.
Patrons have never experienced dodgeball like the game they can play at Sky Zone’s “Ultimate Dodgeball” court. “Sky Slam makes everyone’s dream of playing basketball like a pro come true. “Foam Pit” allows them to make the most daring jumps that they could never attempt on the outside without the fear of getting hurt. The best thing is that absolutely everyone is welcome at Sky Zone whether they are physically in perfect shape or not.
