News Writing Project #2 Information


For this assignment I intend to focus on an article that was published by the Liberty Champion entitled, “Leaping into Lynchburg.” The article is about a Jump Trampoline park being built in Candlers Mountain Shopping Center after Cinemark Movies 10 Theatre declined to renew their contract with Liberty Univeristy. I plan to ask Liberty Students about their thoughts on the closing of Lynchburg’s beloved “Dollar Theatre” and the opening of the Jump Trampoline Park.

I believe this story would be best used in an online format because most Liberty students look for and find out infromation about the University online.

  • Jump Trampoline Park is set to open Sept 1
  • Junp Trampoline Park will be located in Candlers Mountain Shopping Center, which is located less than a mile away from Liberty’s campus
  • The Lynchburg Jump site is going to look like and have the same set-up as the Charlottesville Jump site
  • The Jump park will include a main trampoline area, a trapeze swing, a foam pit and angeled basketball hoops
  • The price for 30 minutes will be $8
  • The price for a hour will be $12
  • Tickets will be available online and reseravtions are highly recommended
  • It is yet to be determined whether or not Liberty students will recieve a discount for the trampoline park
  • Updates on the park will be posted on Facebook and the official Jump Trampoline Park website


I think it would be beneficial to hyperlink the official Jump Trampoline Park website and possibly their Facebook page as well. I would also hyperlink the original article written by the Liberty Champion and WSET News.

For the visual, I would like to include pictures or a video tour of the Jump Trampoline Park located in Charlottesville because the two sites are going to be identical. I would also like to include a timeline of the progression of the new Jump Trampoline Park being built.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
