An indoor trampoline park could open in Peterborough in just a few months’ time.
The £1.5 million investment in Bretton will include over 60 interconnected trampolines, a foam pit, dodgeball courts, basketball nets and a ‘ninja-warrior’ obstacle course.
The Boost Trampoline Park will be located at Unit 1 & 2 Venture Park, Stirling Way and will be open to five-year-olds and above.
And with angled trampolines in use visitors will even be able to bounce off the walls.
The park will be set out over 30,000 square foot and will create over 50 jobs for the area including five apprenticeships. A planning application to change the use of the warehouse so it can hold leisure facilities has been submittedto Peterborough City Council, and if approved it is hoped the park will be open in March.
The investment is coming from Northamptonshire-based asset finance businessmen Alex Read and Rory Dunn who have been looking to invest in an indoor trampoline park.
Mr Read said: “Trampoline parks are a really fresh new leisure business for the UK. They are great fun for children and adults and combine fitness as well as fun, which is great.
“We plan to host a wide range of classes and events including: a dodgeball league, children’s parties, corporate team building events, fitness classes and mum and toddler sessions. On this basis the park will be open to under 5s during the week.”
The investors are taking a 10-year lease on the empty warehouse from Zurich Assurance.
