A new £800,000 trampoline park is hoping to put a spring in people’s step when it opens in Luton.

The 20,000sq ft indoor trampoline arena launches in Luton next year and will have more than 80 inter-connected trampolines on the floor and walls.

Games will include dodgeball, a foam pit, basketball, an obstacle course and a separate parkour area.

The new Jump Arena site at the Galaxy centre in Bridge Street will create 40 jobs and is a new company backed by London-based investors.

The Luton site will be the company’s second, after it launches with its debut venue in Leeds.

Two other sites are also in the pipeline.

The company then plans to roll out the concept across the country.

Speaking about the launch, a Jump Arena spokesman said: “We will have basketball courts and dodgeball league nights.

“We will also host parkour training sessions – without trampolines. People will be able to get training from qualified gymnasts and parkour instructors.

“We will also have a Ninja Warrior-style obstacle course.

“Jump Arena is open to all ages from five years old and above.

“You can bounce from one trampoline to the other but you also have angled trampolines so you can literally bounce off the walls.”
