What Should You Consider When Buying a Big Trampoline?
Before getting to the best big trampolines, let’s quickly go over some of the essential factors you need to consider as you read through the list:
Safety Features – What specific safety features does this trampoline come with?
Quality – Is this trampoline built with quality materials that ensure its longevity through childhood?
Durability- Can this trampoline withstand years of jumping and weather conditions without breaking down?
Warranty- What parts are included and how long is the warranty?
Design and Style – Does this trampoline look aesthetically pleasing in your backyard? Can you customize it?
User Reviews – Does this trampoline have positive online reviews?
Price – Is this trampoline within your budget and worth the investment?
Other Important Factors- Weight capacity, installation, customer service and accessories.
You also must consider the amount of space you have in your backyard before purchasing a big trampoline. They will take up a lot of space, and if you don’t have the necessary room to house the trampoline's size, it could create a safety hazard.

Best Big Cheap Trampolines
We’ll start by going over the best big cheap trampolines you can buy for those with lower budgets:
Main Pros: Affordable, no-gap enclosure system, rust-resistant galvanized steel frame.
Main Cons: Uses inexpensive materials, has safety concerns (metal static poles, poor netting) is not visually appealing and has a short warranty (3-year limited warranty on the frame, 1-year limited on all other materials.)
Should You Buy It? Skywalker’s Round 15 ft Trampoline would be a good option for you if you want a big trampoline and don’t want to pay a lot of money for it. However, if you value safety and want a trampoline that will be able to hold up through the seasons, you will likely want to look elsewhere.

Main Pros: Affordability, high single jumper weight capacity (450 pounds) and easy to set up for most people.
Main Cons: Inexpensive design could lead to a short product lifespan, static poles are a safety hazard, and the one-year warranty is comparably low, especially for a bigger trampoline.
Should You Buy It? If you want an affordable big trampoline with a high weight capacity that is easy to set up, then Jumpzylla’s Model S 14 ft Trampoline is worth looking into. There are some red flags on durability and safety, though, and the one-year limited warranty means you will likely need to pay for replacement parts down the road.

Best Big Trampolines for Mid-Sized Budgets
Now we’re moving on to the mid-tier trampolines! These models would be best for families with a mid-sized budget:
Main Pros: High single jumper weight capacity (425 pounds), hot-dipped galvanized structure is a plus for durability and rust resistance and it comes with a 10-year warranty for the frame.
Main Cons: Although Zupapa has a “no gap” mat, the springs being located inside the net, as well as the static metal poles, are major safety concerns. The other parts of the trampoline beside the frame—the mat, frame pad, safety net and springs—only have a two-year warranty.
Should You Buy It? Zupapa’s 15 ft Trampoline is a quality option for mid-sized budgets, especially those that need a trampoline with a high weight capacity. Its design does create some safety concerns and its limited warranty on commonly replaced parts could mean paying out-of-pocket for replacements in the future.

Main Pros: The enclosure net is made of strong material, its metal components undergo a six-layer rust-proofing process and the trampoline has a lifetime warranty on manufacturer defects.
Main Cons: Some safety concerns, such as the chance for gaps between the mat and enclosure if the enclosure starts to pull away from the mat and its static poles. Also, its 198-pound single jumper weight capacity is very low compared to other big trampolines.
Should You Buy It? Jumpflex’s Flex 150 Estate Trampoline is a solid mid-tier option because of its use of strong materials and lifetime warranty for manufacturer defects. However, safety concerns do persist, and its low single-jumper weight capacity may rule it out for some families.

Best Big Trampolines for Large Budgets
We’re on to our final section of the “Best Big Trampolines” List. The two trampolines below are for those that are willing to spend big money for a big trampoline:
Main Pros: The trampoline’s use of Acon’s signature X-Springs gives it a solid bounce and it comes with strong durability features, such as a sturdy trampoline frame and UV-treated materials. It also comes with a ladder at purchase.
Main Cons: Its static, non-flexing, poles create the potential for impact injuries to wayward jumpers, and some of the springs are still located within the netting—a concern for pinching injuries. You also must purchase the “Performance Package ($2,699)” to get an additional set of springs to increase the bounce quality.
Should You Buy It? Acon’s Air 16 ft Sport HD Trampoline is a good high-end option for those that would like a high-end and durable spring trampoline with a solid bounce. For being such an expensive trampoline, though, some concerning safety issues need to be evaluated before purchasing,
Cost: $2,299 (Offers payment plan)

Main Pros: Comes with industry-leading trampoline safety features (springless design, FlexiNet, hidden frame, SoftEdge Mat and enclosure rods), rigorously tested quality features, 10-year warranty for manufacturer defects on all parts, come with professional installation and is aesthetically pleasing.
Main Cons: It is at the highest end of the price point for a trampoline and its 220-pound single jumper weight capacity is lower than some big trampoline models.
Should You Buy It? If you have the money and you’re looking to buy the “best-of-the-best” in safety and quality, then the Springfree Jumbo Oval Trampoline would be worth examining further. Its price point, however, is likely a non-starter for those looking for a big trampoline on a budget.
