Jump In Trampoline Arena to Open in Slough, UK
The largest and most innovative Trampoline and Fitness Arena in England is set to open in Slough, serving the Thames Valley region. Subject to planning permission, Jump In Trampoline Arena plans to open a 32,000-sq. foot facility in 550 Dundee Road, Slough SL1 4LE in August 2015. Jump In is powered by Altitude Trampoline Parks, which is a leading international operator with multiple sites across the US as well as park development in Japan, UAE, South Africa and India.
The indoor arena will include a variety of specific activities such as 3D Dodgeball, Kid Zone, Foam Pits, tumble tracks and a huge main court where people can jump freely between interconnected trampolines and literally bounce off the walls.
"Defying gravity is one of the most exhilarating experiences whether you’re a child or an adult, and trampolining also happens to be great for your health," says Gavin Lucas, Jump In CEO.
Jump In will also feature four large private rooms and in-park party areas for parties, corporate events, sports teams or any group size up to 120 people. A large café offering local gourmet ice cream and other treats will refresh jumpers and onlookers.
“Our arena offers high energy entertainment at affordable prices for individuals, families and groups. Jump In Trampoline Arena places a focus on providing a safe, clean, family friendly environment that will set our park apart.” – Linsey Willaford-West, Director of Marketing.
“We expect this state of the art indoor trampoline arena to add 60 or more part time, as well as several full time jobs to the Slough area.” – Vernon West, Executive Chairman.
Community & Fitness
Jump In is committed to providing excellent facilities for the local community, and will cater not just to adrenaline junkies, but also to anyone who is just looking to have fun. It’s also ideal for teachers, group leaders and parents to give kids a unique opportunity to enjoy a healthy way of releasing energy.
Jump In will also set up a dodge ball league inviting corporate teams and those from other groups and organisations to join the sport.
High-energy fitness classes on trampolines will also be offered, attracting those who wish to get fit while having fun. Research conducted by NASA states that jumping on trampolines is 68% more effective than running yet it requires less effort and develops overall body strength more effectively than weightlifting. Other benefits include improved flexibility, coordination and balance. Since the trampoline acts as a shock absorber, the low-impact workout is suitable for all ages.
"Safety and cleanliness are our top priorities. We strictly adhere to safety guidelines, to which we have added our own additional measures which draw from best practice in other industries. Each jumping arena is monitored by trained team members. That way, we can ensure that everyone has a great experience at our park," Lucas explains.

About Jump In:

Bookings: Individuals will be able to make bookings in July on the website: http://gojumpin.com Image for release can be found here: http://www.gojumpin.com/press.html About the founders: JumpIn has been set up by a mumpreneur and two dadpreneurs who themselves are fun loving and adventuresome, always looking for activities to share with their children. Founders Linsey Willaford-West and Vernon West were visiting family in Fort Worth Texas when they came across Altitude Trampoline Park. They brought their toddler to the park and had so much fun that they came back nearly every day of the remainder of their trip! When they came back to the UK, they didn’t want the fun to stop and knew they had to bring the concept to their local neighbourhood. They reached out to Gavin Lucas to co-found and head up the organisation. Gavin was happily heading up a large division of DHL at the time, but was compelled by the unique opportunity as he was always passionate about sports and a fellow parent and could see trampoline parks transforming the way Brits get fit and play. Property consultants Martin Campbell sourced the SERGO property on behalf of Jump In.
