Indoor trampoline parks have cropped up around the country in recent years, offering customers a chance to bounce, flip and jump in wall-to-wall trampolines. The jump gyms offer the kind of rain-or-shine suburban entertainment popular for birthday parties and summer camps. But some doctors and officials say the parks are dangerous and can cause serious injuries. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)

Orland Park is seeking to revoke the business license of a local entertainment venue that hosted a lock-in event over the weekend. Police were called out to Sky Zone Saturday on a report of a fight. Officers noticed a large gathering of minors inside the indoor trampoline park that far exceeded the maximum capacity of the building. The gathering was shut down, and Sky Zone was cited for numerous violations, including two for reckless conduct and one for a fire code occupancy violation. Village officials say the large gathering presented a danger to the health, safety and welfare of those in attendance.
