Jump In is a brilliant place to take the kids over the summer holidays, whether you want to escape from the rain, or give them a chance to burn off some energy. There are 9 Jump In trampoline parks across the UK, and we visited our local Slough Jump In with four children aged 2-11.
This was my first time at Jump In, although the older children had been before for friends birthday parties. I was impressed with the amount of different activities within this trampoline park, especially with how well it caters for the little ones as well as the older children. It’s not always easy balancing the needs of a toddler plus older siblings over the summer holidays but Jump In catered for this mix perfectly, so that was a huge plus for me.
As well as the interconnected trampolines which make up the majority of the space, my older kids also love trying out activities like the battle beam, or diving onto the giant airbag.
There is a dodgeball area which is great fun for all the family, and the tumble track for those who want to put their moves to the test. My 7 year old is quite gymnastic and loved using this area to try out flips and forward rolls in mid air.
There are also drop slides, a racing tower, and slides to zoom down. We had a two hour jump session and the kids were kept happy and entertained for the full time.
Parents can also join in on the trampolines, and I really enjoyed it myself. We went in the late afternoon which is quite a quiet time, so if you fancy getting in on the action with the kids yourself it might be a good time to go. It’s really good exercise for all the family, and you can’t help feeling happy while you are bouncing around. I did get stuck in the foam pit though – it’s not as easy to get back out as the kids made it look, so maybe leave that to the kids haha.
Over the summer there’s extra fun and games lined up for the school holidays, including indoor welly wanging, giant Jenga and volleyball, as well as the chance to get some bling with a glitter tattoo – or two!
Jump In for Under 5s
The Under 5s area is somewhere that Jump In really excels. They have a separate soft play area, separate smaller interconnected trampoline area, and a few other toys like cosy coupes and a mini roller coaster all within a fenced off area with sofas for parents to sit and relax.
This makes life so much easier and means that the toddlers don’t have to miss out while the bigger kids have all the fun. My 2 year old had a brilliant time. She is not yet great at trampolines and jumping, so the fact that there was a good mix of activities within the under 5s section made all the difference for us and the whole area was so well thought out.
Jump In is definitely somewhere I would return back to with the children over the summer holidays, as it catered to all of them so well and the whole family had a lot of fun.
