WICHITA — Get Air Wichita isn't going to open this month as planned, but parents looking for something for their kids to do should have no fear. It's still going to open. It'll just be spring instead.

"We're so excited to come," says Nancy Deville, who is teaming with other investors to open the giant indoor trampoline park downtown.

"We're shooting for spring break," Deville says.

Get Air will open in 22,000 square feet of former Big Dog Motorcycles space on New York Street between Douglas and First Street.

The holdup is the manufacturing of the custom, wall-to-wall trampolines.

"We have to get in line," Deville says of waiting for other parks to get theirs first.

In the meantime, she and some partners have opened a Get Air in Lexington, Ky.

"It's just a smashing success," Deville says. "It's just a really wonderful place for kids to go to have fun."

She says she expects the same reception in Wichita once the trampolines are ready.

"Otherwise, we would be there right now."
