Jump Factory is a warehouse that’s been transformed into an indoor trampoline park with over 80 trampolines on site. Mini Jump is an hour long session set aside for kids aged walking to 5 year olds.
It is available several times a week, currently term time Mon-Fri 10am-12pm (2 sessions) and 2-3pm, Sat-Sun 9-11am (2 sessions). They also offer Mini Jump parties. We went on a Friday morning in term time.
There is a large car park to the front. Visiting on a Friday though I couldn’t say how busy this gets. The cafe upstairs offers a range of cold foods and hot/cold drinks and is particularly useful if you arrive early. There is also a microwave for heating baby food.
The toilets and changing facilities are downstairs as well as a locker area to change socks and leave personal effects. You are not allowed food or drinks in the jump area but we were told it was fine to pop down for drinks etc kept in the locker area. The whole place looked clean, well kept and appeared to be in very good condition.
The jump area is much bigger than I expected consisting of a multitude of various sized trampolines, ramps (‘halfpipe’), air bag, dodge ball area, climbing wall area, and basketball area, all of which were available during Mini Jump. There were several soft balls, foam letters and tunnels around which were a simple but nice touch.
The staff were great, especially on reception who seemed unphased by tantrums and more concerned with being helpful.
The sessions were an hour long. I didn’t think the boys would be entertained enough for an hour, how wrong was I! Now, I would say it was the perfect length.
All in all, brilliant fun for little ones, adults and all in between. I had never been anywhere like this before and had no idea what to expect. Our toddlers were brimming with excitement! We will definitely be going again, and again, and again.
Requirements are one adult to every two mini jumpers.
They offer hour long sessions on the hour so bear this in mind when timing arrival.
If it’s your first time, arrive early as you will need to fill out a quick online disclaimer. You will also have to watch a brief safety video each time.
It’s worth bringing or purchasing drinks to keep in the locker area.
There is no lift up to the cafe, only stairs. However, if you need help, the staff said they would happily assist where needed.
You’ll need to purchase their special grip-socks, but you can keep these for future use.
Obvious one really, but wear sensible clothing for jumping around in.
Watch out for the couple of steps halfway along in the jump area, they blend in to excited two year olds, especially when walking backwards – as you do! To their credit, there was a staff member stood there the whole time.
