England’s largest indoor trampoline park, Jump Giants bounced into Essex last week, and was officially opened by VIP guests Bars and Melody and Youth Creation.
The ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ stars took a turn on the wall-to-wall, green and purple trampoline courts at the 28,000 square-foot centre in West Thurrock. Performing arts team, Youth Creation, even delighted fans and competition winners with a short performance during the VIP launch party.
The Gasp team took on the Bank Holiday traffic to attend the party. We donned our rather snazzy jump grip socks before leaping into the action.
The largest attraction of its kind in England, Jump Giants features the world’s first eight-lane trampoline entry foam zone with two launch pads, dodgeball courts and basketball hoops, as well as angled, inter-connected trampolines that literally enable you to bounce off the walls.
Located near Lakeside Shopping Centre on Motherwell Way in West Thurrock, Jump Giants has a trampoline-based dodgeball league, birthday packages, family days, sessions for pre-school children, teen party nights and corporate team events. Over the coming weeks, it may also roll out Jump Fit sessions for those that want a serious workout.
Bouncing between more than 100 inter-connected trampolines is not only fun but also a very efficient form of exercise. It has less impact stress on your joints than the equivalent in running, for example, and also benefits heart strength, metabolism, fatigue, digestion, sleep patterns, nerve impulses and more.
Expected to attract urban sports fans, free-runners, kids and adults from across London and the East of England, Jump Giants signals that the trampoline park craze that has swept across countries such as Australia, Singapore and the USA has finally gripped the UK. In fact, the Jump Giants’ launch competition that we managed had nearly 50,000 entries on social media, and was certainly a smash hit. Their Twitter account is certainly worth a follow, with regular videos and updates posted.
Now open to the general public, jump fans can book their session and fill out their waiver easily on their website and follow Jump Giants on Facebook.
