When it comes to making plans with my friends there’s only ever two options; food or drinks, or both, and although I love food, it can get pretty boring. I love trying out new things and since I’m trying to live a healthier, more active lifestyle, a trip to Jump 360 with my friend sounded like just the thing.
Jump 360 is an spacious indoor trampoline park situated in the North East. Previously an unused warehouse, this space has been given a new lease of life offering people of all ages an exciting, exhilarating and fun bouncing experience.
Jump 360 has two parks, one in Stockton and the other in Hartlepool. Since my friend, Amy, lives just a 10 minute drive from Hartlepool, we chose the latter. Another plus of going to an indoor trampoline park is that it’s indoors, which was ideal considering it was chucking it down when we were driving there.
I’ve never been to a trampoline park before, and although I was expecting trampolines, I wasn’t expecting the variety of apparatus this indoor park has to offer. I’m talking about trampolines (big and small), slides, ball pools, foam pools, a climbing wall, basketball and dodgeball areas, a battle beam, a monkey swing and much more.
I was so excited to get started, but before that I had to put on a special pair of socks and watch a health and safety video. The socks are for hygiene and safety reasons, they’re only £2 to buy and once you do you can wear them every time to go. It’s sort of like buying 3D glasses for the cinema, once you’ve got them, you can reuse them over and over.
After watching the two minute health and safety video (you’ll be surprised to find there’s loads of ways you can actually die/hurt yourself on a trampoline) we were ready to bounce!
In an hour and half I’d bounced every inch of that trampoline park, and it was bloody good fun! I’ve never laughed so hard in all of my life. It was so great to put away my phone and be away from social media, and just be a kid again playing around. My favourite was definitely the climbing wall, because I smashed the timing challenge. The beam battle is pretty fun too; I felt like a gladiator!
When entering the trampoline area you are given a wristband that allocates how long you can spend on the trampolines. We were given two hours, however, after an hour and a half I couldn’t breathe. I thought I was fit, but I’d bounced so much I was absolutely knackered.
I think Jump 360 is the perfect place to try something new with friends, take the kids out for a fun-filled day or a super fun workout if you’re trying to be more active. With the weather being so unpredictable, this totally unique destination in the North East is an ideal day out during all seasons.
Have you been to Jump 360 before? Have you ever been to anything similar? Is this something you would love to try with your friends?
