Your child and their guests will get a 1-hour long jumping session, in which time they will bounce across a plethora of interconnected trampolines, run through obstacle courses fit with monkey bars, tunnel crawls and flying foxes, hop on the inflatable pillow, dive into ‘the pit’, a giant pool of foam squares, try to score some baskets through the hoops set on trampolines, only before heading as a group to the 20 climbing walls called SkyClimb for some belaying action. Little bodies will be well worn out, and a lunch of either sandwiches and fruit or pizza and chips is sure to be enjoyed and devoured.
