Our latest adventure was to the "Jump Arena" in Luton, which is an indoor trampoline park located in the Galaxy Centre. There is a similar place in Milton Keynes and a new one being built in Stevenage too.
Jump Arena boasts over 50 interconnected trampolines including ones on the walls ! It also has a dodge ball area and basketball area, foam pits you can jump in, balance beams you can battle on and a giant air bag you can jump on to. There is no lower or upper age limit on the trampolines so grown ups can join in too.
When you arrive you have to watch a short safety video showing you the do's and don'ts of trampolining and afterwards you go into a locker room area, where you put on your grip socks which are provided by Jump Arena (the lockers are £1 each, if you need to use them).
The staff were extremely friendly and really engaged with the boys, and obviously genuinely really like children. At all times the children were fully supervised by the staff. They showed them various different ways of using the equipment, entertained them and encouraged different groups of children to do things together. I cannot praise them highly enough on their helpfulness.
For those not bouncing there is a cafe upstairs with a balcony from which you can see the entire site, so you can sit back and relax whilst keeping an eye on the kids. Jump Arena is fully air conditioned too so the children don't overheat too much.
