It's a bird, it's a plane--it's a flying mommyyyyy. Parents need to celebrate the end of school too. Why not try a 2-hour class at the New York Trapeze School! The instructors gave us the proper mix of support and silliness. We felt securely in "good hands" and out of 8 newbies all successfully acquired some cool aerial tricks.
Leave your fear and inhibition behind and grab a clean pair of socks (we forgot ours and had to purchase a pair $3--ouch). In the session we got five turns on the trapeze and a desire to come back soon! Once the kids find out about the fun you've had, you might have to share the experience (they say kids need to be at least 6 and everyone 18 and under and must be accompanied by an adult--no drop offs). There's nothing like stepping off the 23' platform the first time. Exhilarating!
The two locations offer vastly different experiences. We say go big and go outdoors--head to Pier 40 for your first try. The view is amazing (Try to spot Miss Liberty before your back flip). When you get hooked, the reliability of the indoor classes on 30th St. will be ideal. The outdoor location is open May September.
Pier 40 times 1 pm, 3:15 pm and 5:45 (awesome sunset class)
Prices start at $50 for first timers outdoors

Momtrends was not paid for this post. We shelled out $60 and would do it again!
