We had a very bouncy morning at Amped Trampoline Park, which is basically a school hall filled with trampolines. It’s great fun for kids and adults alike. Did you know that trampolining is actually a really good workout and mood booster? It burns 160 calories for every 30 minutes of jumping! As for it being a mood booster, I can personally attest to it because I made the mistake of checking work emails even though I said I wouldn’t while I’m on leave, and got a bit worked up mentally just before we left the house. But we got to the park and I bounced (rather comically, as the girls and K will tell you), and forgot all about work for a good hour. Here are pictures: Yes, that last photo is of me doing a headstand in the foam pit to show off my new Thorlo running socks. No, I’m not very good at doing stunts. I’m actually thinking of celebrating my next birthday here – would be cool to have all my 30-something friends creaking as they bounce.
We all had a lot of fun during our allotted hour and the girls asked to stay for another session, but the whole place had been booked for a private event so we had to leave. I do think there should be more staff in the park area to police people. There were only two or three staff while we were there and they were more keen on teaching people tricks than making sure that everyone was playing safely. Having said that, this is for the most part a great place to let off steam. Just watch where you’re jumping and you should be fine.
Amped Trampoline Park is open Monday to Sunday, with specific time slots for different age groups. Rates range from $9 to $15 hourly. Slots can be booked online.
