The park is home to several areas of connected trampolines, of the kind of you can see here.

Rules state only one person is allowed on each square of trampoline at once.

These angled trampolines around the side bring more bouncing potential.

There's plenty of scope to experiment, but the park recommends not trying "advanced moves that are beyond you." Safety first, y'know.

These rather uncool yellow socks are a requirement -- they're important both for extra grip and for hygiene purposes.

Leaping into this enormous air bag is a definite highlight.

When you're tired of bouncing, there's a suspended ladder and rope swings above foam pools to keep you occupied.

Trampolines plus basketball hoops make for some excellent dunking opportunities.

Bludgeon your opponents and keep control of this strategically-important beam, using a foam-covered paddle.

The post-bounce sensation in our bones serves as a sobering reminder that we're not as young as we once were. Luckily there's space to grab a coffee and watch everyone else bounce.
