The War With Grandpa
Sky Zone made a triumphant return to the big screen in 2020 in The War With Grandpa alongside Robert De Niro, Christopher Walken, and Uma Thurman.
This hilarious family comedy follows the story of Peter (Oakes Fegley) and his Grandpa Ed (Robert De Niro) who used to be very close. But when Grandpa Ed moves in with the family, Peter is forced to give up his most prized possession: his bedroom.
Peter will stop at nothing to get his room back and it turns into an all-out war between the two. The war travels to Sky Zone where Peter and Grandpa Ed both recruit their friends for an epic dodgeball match complete with plenty of hijinks.

The film's producers, Marvin and Rosa Peart, first learned about Robert Kimmel Smith's 1984 novel, The War With Grandpa, from their son Tre who read the book in his second grade class. The Pearts involved Tre in the process of adapting this family comedy for the big screen, helping to make it relatable and enjoyable for all ages.
Now you can check out a sneak peek of what is unquestionably one of the film’s funniest set pieces - the intense game of dodgeball that takes place at a local Sky Zone Trampoline Park+.
Marvin Peart recalls that the scene of these legendary actors facing off against the kids while bouncing off the walls was incredible to behold. “The most fun was watching Walken, Marin, Seymour and De Niro on the trampoline like 10-year old kids,” he says.
“Watching De Niro jump on the trampoline in between takes, just keeping loose and limber—I thought I was seeing a mirage. At some point, I didn’t think it was even real. This is Robert De Niro, one of the most revered actors of all time, and he is out there jumping on a trampoline. It was a moment.”
