Jump In…a trampoline arena review and #giveaway

Pack it up pack it in, let me begin, if I don’t squeeze in this reference, battle me, that’s a sin.

Okay, okay I’ll stop there.

So…trampoline centres. They are literally springing up everywhere lately. To be honest, I hadn’t really thought about heading on down to one as I thought the sproglets would be too weeny (age 2 & 4). I had reserved the very idea to my (growing) list of things to do when we don’t have the children around one day. i.e. in my dreams / never.

Then, I got an invitation from JUMP IN to bring the family along to a brand spanking new Trampoline park opening in Tonbridge Kent. As it happened, we were racking our brains for something to do on our bonus second week off for half term. It turns out a load of potential destinations had shut up shop for winter come 31st October and we were scraping the barrell with thoughts of soft play or yet another country park.

So, might as well JUMP.

Last week we donned our best casual wear and headed on down to Tonbridge with the whole G-unit in tow. A little unsure of what to expect, we were greeted by a pretty spacious entrance hall with some pretty spesh decor. (Nice flooring, random but true).

Whilst the girls were buzzing to get bouncing, we reined them in to get to grips with the disclaimer process. As the staff explained, at opening during term time the arena is pretty quiet. Although there is a under 5s exclusion zone, it’s up to you if you want to let the kids roam free. As we were the ONLY people there, we had nothing to lose!

Kitted up with our socks, we watched the safety video which was not for the faint hearted. In fact Tigs had a little wobble…

“Mummy, there’s so much to remember, what if I forget something?”

Reassured and stripped of all excess baggage and clothing (courtesy of the lockers and a refundable quid), we hit the arena.

The facilities were immaculate, as confirmed by the all important pre-bounce wee.

Then we were off…

The girls were blown away (as were we) by the sight of what lay before us. For a couple of trampoline lovers, they had pretty much died and gone to heaven.

The arena was as much fun as we thought it’d be. In fact, more fun! Our soft play loving adrenaline junkie was in her element, and Tigs was just bouncing off the walls.

The arena has loads going on… the Mini jump under 5s zone, The slam dunk basketball section, a dodgeball area, an awesome foam pit and battle beam. Plus ‘the ladder’ which we had fun watching some care free ‘yoof’ diving from. Crawling all over the landing airbags was more our style.

As the session went on, it did get busier so we diverted the mouse over to the under 5s area where she was less likely to be trodden on. Something to bear in mind is that you might want to avoid peak times if you have tinies in tow and hope to get a piece of the main arena action.

After a full hour channelling our inner Tigger, we were Done with a capital D. Although the arena is fully air conditioned, we worked up a sweat and definitely needed a cold drink to come down to earth. Fortunately, the slushy station had it sorted and all 4 of us enjoyed a bit of BRAIN FREEZE.

So, I realise now, I was wrong about these places. They are for all ages – in particular a fun loving 35 year old.

    Yay! We have one of these really close to us (not the ones in the giveaway unfortunately but the same kind of thing.) I thought like you, that our two would be too small but as they are the sane age as yours I think we should be able to bounce right on in! Thank you for sharing. Looks like you had loads of fun xx

    Love these places….it really tires them out! We have a cool one not too far away here in Sydney. Must get back there. #coolmumclub

    This sounds epic. I’ve been tempted by thse places but I always, like you, thought the littles were too small. (well…. the littlest certainly is…) I think Gray would love this, I will have to give it a go! Thanks! x #coolmumclub

    Theres a trampoline park not far from us that Im sure my eldest would love so might have to take her! #coolmumclub

  7. Abi Reply

    We have so many of these near us, and I’ve so far avoided because I thought Alfie might be too young – but he loves the trampoline at soft play, so I might give it a go! I know they do toddler sessions on week day mornings, and as we are off work next week, it’s an ideal time to check it out. p.s was the pre-bounce wee for the kids, or you?! #coolmumclub

    Love trampolines! This place looks cool. Fab review (and the socks rock too) #coolmumclub

  9. Winnettes Reply

    This does look like so much fun. I didn’t realise they were suitable for the under 5’s. My daughters would love this… I’m not sure my pelvic floor would though….

    I love trampolining! We’ve got loads of these open round our way now and the kids love it. The last time we all went my husband very foolishly wore skinny jeans and on his first bounce he ripped them from front to back at the crotch. If the trampolines themselves didn’t make me wet myself, the look on his face did!!! #coolmumclub

    My girls love the one at Tonbridge and it’s very close by – yipee! In fact, my youngest is off there this weekend with her friend. I’ve entered your draw – thank you 🙂 Hope to see you at Blogfest! Alison x #coolmumclub

    My hubby took our girls (5 & 2) to one of these places recently and they loved it! It’s also a fab way to have a nice quiet evening later on (it totally wore them out!) #CoolMumClub

    My kids love trampoline parks! We have one very close to our house that they love. Shame my wallet doesn’t agree:) #coolmumclub

    I came to win. Battle me that’s a sin! Excellent reference. I love your limp-wristed post throw stance, I do exactly the same – although in my head it looks way better! This looks ace fun x #coolmumclub

    I really want to go to one of these but only six months post baby I do worry about my bladder control! However I do wonder if I use it as my”J” date for alphabet dating, it gives me 9 months to work on it! #coolmumclub

    1. MMT Reply

      Yeah…maybe wait, or it could be a dating disaster from hell! Be a funny blog post though!

    I have been on the fence about taking L to our local trampoline park, different brand, same idea. They have an under 5 section as well, but I was still unsure. I think that I might give it a whirl now I’ve seen how much fun you all had, especially as would be going during term time. #coolmumclub

    These are a great way of burning off calories and exhausting the kids. My youngest still loves going although last time she did overdo the bouncing and managed to throw up her bright blue slushie all over her bedroom carpet as soon as we got home. The stain is still there and she always points it out proudly as a memento of the last time she went trampolining. #coolmumclub
