Best Indoor Trampoline Parks in Scotland
JumpStation – Livingston
JumpStation’s massive indoor trampoline park, equipped with everything from 80 interconnected trampolines, dodgeball courts, slam dunk zones and, for those who love an obstacle course, challenge zones, makes it one of the UK’s premiere indoor trampoline parks. There’s no shortage of classes and fitness-oriented activities at the venue as well: jumpers can choose from partaking in games of badminton, gymnastics, or even cheerleading classes, in addition to the core workout of trampolining.
Perhaps more uniquely, JumpStation is the home to the UK’s first augmented climbing wall; another feather in the cap of this hugely impressive venue.
“For people looking to get fit, it’s a brilliant place to bring the whole family and jump together or even play badminton. Trampolining can burn around 1,000 calories in an hour, and visitors to JumpStation can chill out afterwards with a 30 calorie Tango Ice Blast – sorted!
“In addition, JumpStation offers Tots Time, Birthday Parties, ASN Sessions, Holiday Activity Camps, Club Nights and more.”
Skyline Trampoline – Aberdeen
Skyline Trampoline is Aberdeenshire’s premiere indoor trampoline park and leisure facility. Housed inside a massive 32,000 sq. ft. arena, with 1,000s of square feet of trampoline space, the facility caters for jumpers of all ages. As well as trampoline areas, the facility also houses dodgeball courts, battelebeams, foam towers, Olympic rings, a traverse climbing wall, a 2 metre jump tower, and much more. Essentially, if you want to jump off something and fall onto something either springy or padded, Skyline Trampoline has you covered. They also host a massive range of kids’ parties and jump classes, including the hugely popular Sky Fit.
“Skyline’s wow factor begins when you walk through the front door of our trampoline park. The openness of the space, the brightness, and the colours are a feast for the eyes and senses. The park was designed with a focus entirely on the participating and viewing customer. We wanted to create a space which gives the customer a freedom and excitement despite being indoors. We love to see families playing together, it’s a great way to bond, have fun and keep fit without the ‘grind’ of more traditional ways of exercising: it’s harder than it looks, but everyone can jump!”
Gravit8 – Airdrie
You may be wondering where the distinction lies between a regular trampoline park, and an extreme trampoline park (the description used by Gravit8 for their facility). Well, we might start with the extremity of this venue’s ambition: they are self-proclaimed as one of Glasgow’s top trampoline parks, and are currently Europe’s second biggest trampoline park, with over 80 trampolines, 16,000 square feet of free space, and a range of different activities and state-of-the-art equipment. The venue cherishes the expertise of its staff, and as such can provide a friendly, welcoming, and safe service, in addition to running specialised trampoline fitness classes on a regular basis. Gravit8, we might say, are therefore extreme in every sense: in ambition, fun, and in their attention to detail.
“Our inclusion comes so soon after our Dinom8 soft play area was named Best Soft Play Area of the Year 2018 at the Scottish Hospitality Awards. For the 2 years that we have been open, it has been a combination of the great staff and their work ethic to ensure the safety of all our customers on the trampolines as well as our inclusive facilities that have created the great place Gravit8 is today.
“The facility itself is a credit to the owners. They have designed a trampoline arena that allows for endless hours of enjoyment for the children and ‘big kids’ whilst the parents can observe the entire trampoline area whilst enjoying a bite to eat or a hot drink. The size of the park is perfect for the younger children who require extra supervision but at the same time provides the older ones a game of dodge ball or to fight their mate on our gladiator zone.
“Soon after the opening of the facility, various members of our staff created a range of fitness classes to help the local community engage in physical activity on whatever night of the week would suit. A combination of the vast freestyle area we have in the park, consisting of over 40 trampolines and variety of classes such as BounceFit or our 30 Day Challenge class, created a welcoming and accessible opportunity for many people to get active.”
Sky High Falkirk
“The skies are no longer out of reach, with Sky High.”
With a slogan like that it’s hard not to Sky High Falkirk’s as one of the best indoor trampoline parks in the country. This indoor trampoline venue, based in Scotland, wants its visitors to be creative in how they use their park, encouraging freestyle exploration of their many trampolines, or high intensity games of basketball and dodgeball on their trampoline courts. They also have a super-sized air bag, specifically designed for perfecting aerial stunts.
For those looking for specific activities, Sky High run neon parties on the last Friday of every month, in addition to their Sky Fit classes, utilising trampoline-based activities to create a high intensity, high-entertainment cardiovascular workout.
Infinity Trampoline Park – Inverness
The “infinity” of Infinity Trampoline Park is perhaps referring to the options jumpers have once they are inside. This is because the entire park is parkour-inspired: designed with freestyle jumping and creativity in mind. Visitors therefore have access to over 50 interconnected trampolines, vault boxes, tumble tracks and performance beds.
Whether its practising flips into the foam pits, working on a gymnastics routine in the main court, or even walking the walls in Infinity’s specifically designed parkour arena, you can be sure of keeping fit in an exciting and engaging way when you visit this indoor trampoline park.
Best Indoor Trampoline Parks in the North of England
Airbox – Cramlington
With a promise to deliver the “ultimate trampolining experience for children and adults alike,” Airbox have grasped the broad demographics of trampolining and its increasing popularity and ran with it (or jumped with it). This can be seen in their wide range of facilities, from interconnected trampolines, to roll-over platforms, angled walls, foam pits, and battle beams.
There’s also plenty for the fitness enthusiasts to enjoy. Airbox have a fairly unique “cardio wall” combining athleticism and flexibility, with aerobic fitness. They also run dedicated Jump Fitness classes on a regular basis, with benefits that include improved physical strength and cardiovascular ability, and muscle development and coordination, in a fun and inclusive environment.
Planet Leisure – Newton Aycliffe
Based in the North East, Planet Leisure offers a veritable feast of entertainment activities including ten-pin bowling, roller skating, laser quest, and, of course, a fully equipped trampoline space ranking among the best trampoline parks in the UK. Located above their roller skating rink (testament to how large this venue actually is), Planet Leisure’s indoor trampoline facilities are some of the best in the UK, including dodgeball courts, a wide array of interconnected trampolines, and an airbag area on which to perform stunts.
The venue also runs an increasingly popular trampoline fitness class, with the dual aim to get more people excited about living a healthy lifestyle, and to get more people into trampolining as a serious sport, rather than a one-time weekend activity. These sessions are all coached by professional fitness trainers, and as such participants are guaranteed a fun but comprehensive workout, during which they can expect to lose anything up to 1,000 calories.
Xscape – Yorkshire
If you haven’t heard of it, Xscape in Yorkshire is a massive multi-entertainment complex, which includes facilities that can cater for climbing, snowsports, and, you guessed it, trampolining. The venue’s indoor trampoline park is actually run by Gravity Trampoline Parks, who are market leaders when it comes to safety. As you might expect, this venue has all the added extras that come with being one of the best trampoline parks in the UK: dodgeball areas, a large air bag on which to perform stunts, slam dunk arenas, and much more.
We also found, in our initial survey, that the venue was popular for its HIIT-style trampoline fitness classes. In Xscape’s and Gravity’s own words:
“Our HIIT Fitness Trampoline classes, are fun packed fitness with loads of health benefits! High Intensity Interval Training Classes on a trampoline get your blood rushing. It is high energy, and helps to tone, condition and burn fat.
“Jumpers can expect enhanced cardio vascular performance, better balance, improved muscle tone, core strength and a healthier lymphatic system after just a few sessions with us. And it’s fun!”
Adrenaline International – West Yorkshire
It is perhaps unfair to describe Adrenaline International as solely an indoor trampoline park. Instead, it’s more accurate to consider the wide array of facilities and activities that they host on a regular basis. Owned by the Fitzpatrick Family, recent investment in the venue means that they now boast a comprehensive trampoline park, with a main court, free style court, slam dunk lanes, two dodgeball courts, and an airbag arena, in addition to toddler adventure play zones, VR gaming areas, and dedicated party rooms. Basically, if you’re looking for an adrenaline filled day of activities, it should perhaps be unsurprising (given the name) that Adrenaline International should be your first port of call.
Not content with just improving people’s day-to-day enjoyment of life, Adrenaline International have also invested in improving their fitness too. Their Cardio Fitness classes, for example last 45 minutes, and focus on all areas of the body.
Kick air – Manchester
Kick air Manchester describes itself as a “freestyle park,” rather than just being an indoor trampoline park. What does this mean? Well, the venue is separated into different zones, comprising of an air zone (trampoline based activities including dodgeball, basketball, and total wipe-out), a kick zone (football based activities including taking on the robokeeper, and football darts), and Little Kicks (kids’ play area and soft play). The venue runs special events and themed evenings, ensuring that there are plenty of opportunities to get fit in fun and exciting ways using this premier facility.
“Kickair will have been recommended for a number of reasons. It’s the largest freestyle park in the UK; the number of challenges available to the participants are so vast that each participant is guaranteed to feel they have received value for money; the challenges vary in degree of difficulty and therefore anyone from beginners or experts can use them.
“There are also a number of standout features to our venue. The Kick Zone housed in Kickair is unique and not seen in any other park in the world, and all of our equipment is of high quality thus offering a quality experience.”
Spring City – Liverpool
Based in the heart of Liverpool, Spring City is beloved for its unique identity and fantastic facilities. With over 100 trampolines, basketball nets, dodgeball courts, and a large café, Liverpool’s first city centre indoor trampoline park offers both excellent resources and a broad range of events and special sessions. Indeed, on any given week, Spring City’s busy calendar includes children specific sessions, student nights, autism friendly sessions, in addition to popular Springercise and Trampoline HIIT classes.
“We believe people would recommend us because we are a fun and vibrant venue with an engaging and welcoming team. Located on the iconic river Mersey, making it a fantastic backdrop to work out in, our venue has qualified instructors with a wealth of experience, and the ability to tailor workouts to suit the needs of individuals’ fitness capacity in class.
“Our fitness sessions are built on scientific knowledge to boost fitness, increase heart rates, intensify calorie burn, and engage all muscles groups. Rest assured, our classes feel like ‘exercise in disguise’: you’ll have the time of your life, and they’re guaranteed to make you leave with the ‘burn’ in your legs.”
Energi Preston quickly garnered a ton of votes from our students and fitness professionals, and it’s easy to see why. The sheer number of different activities on offer at this venue is mind boggling. As well as being a fully kitted out indoor trampoline park, with high jump targets and a variety of different surfaces and platforms to jump from, the facility also caters for parkour, indoor bouldering, and trampoline basketball. There are also a couple of unique features to Energi Preston, including the Fusion Skyride – the UK’s first indoor skyride – and The Wall – a Cirque Du Soleil designed freestyle piece of equipment.
With this abundance of space and facilities, Energi Preston stay well on top of the fitness benefits of trampolining:
“We think trampolining and fitness go hand in hand. We run three dedicated fitness sessions a week so that as many people as possible can come and get fit and have fun at the same time. People – adults and children alike – come off the Park exhausted, exercising without even thinking about it. It is great for kids who perhaps don’t particularly like sport but can come here and get fit without realising it.
“However, I think the main reason people like coming back to us is purely down to the team here at Energi Preston. We all work together irrespective of position in the company. We are a proper team effort, and we put our customers’ experience with us, and their safety, first. The most comments we get are related to how friendly our staff are, how much we interact with our customers, and how we have fun with them to improve their visit. Our customers know, as soon as they arrive, that they are going to experience a great atmosphere, and know that we are going to keep them safe.
“We love what we do, and we absolutely love having fun with our customers.”
Freedome Park – Cheshire Oaks
Freedome indoor trampoline park is a one of a kind facility. Innovated by Sky Zone, the world’s leading manufacturer of trampoline parks, Freedome has a mightily impressive list of events and facilities guaranteeing its place on this list of the best indoor trampoline parks in the UK. These include fitness classes, open jump sessions, competitions, state-of-the-art trampolines, air bags to perform stunts onto, ultimate warrior courses, and a variety of jump-sports arenas. Perhaps then, given their expertise and facilities, it would be best to hand over to them to describe why you should visit Freedome…
“Whether you’re looking to feel the fun and benefits of simply bouncing around or want to practice your flips and tricks in a fun-and-safe environment, then Freedome has the facilities and activities to suit your needs.
“At Freedome you can channel your inner Patches O’ Houlihan and dodge, dip, duck, dive, and dodge your way around our Ultimate Dodgeball Court, which is the world’s first pad-less trampoline court specifically designed for Freedome.
“Not a dodgeball fan? Show off your inner Michael Jordan and practice your alley-oops and slam dunks on the high-flying FreeSlam, or if you just want to bounce you can FreeStyle on our enormous continuous trampoline court complete with sprung walls for the serious jumper.
“We also, run our very own high-intensity fitness class, FreeFit. FreeFit is a new concept in trampoline fitness classes, based on the popular HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) principle, and consisting of a specific 45 minute full-body workout and 15 minutes of open jump, all of which takes place on our trampolines.
“Don’t just take our word for it though. Numerous studies have been conducted on the subject and trampolining has been found to have a whole host of health benefits when done safely. Such benefits include: Increased balance and coordination; low impact, so less stress placed on joints compared to running; and increased cardiovascular endurance and oxygen capacity.
“So if you want to get fit and have fun in an exhilarating, innovative, friendly, and safety first environment, get down to Freedome now, the UK’s leading aerial freestyle park!”
Ascent Trampoline Park – Blackpool

They are kitted out with trampolines in the dedicated “flip zone,” a professional air bag to safely perform stunts and flips onto, a bouldering wall, parkour facilities, as well as slam dunk and dodgeball arenas. You would, however, be mistaken in thinking that this wide variety of activities detracts from the trampolining itself. Ascent offer a variety of different themed sessions, including Ascent Todds, autism friendly sessions, and beat night (Friday nights with music aimed at 11-17 year olds), in addition to Ascent Academy and in-house fitness classes. All in all, Ascent have pretty much every base covered.

Tests have shown that you can burn up to 409 calories per hour on a trampoline, so the benefits of the exercise, plus the enjoyment the classes bring, have resulted in the classes being so popular.
“Our state of the art facilities provide the perfect venue for fitness enthusiasts, with over 100 trampolines in our large and high capacity arena. We are pleased to say that during our peak months, the classes are attended by over 70 attendees per day.

With the fun side of their mission well and truly covered, Jump Division are also keen to offer the very best in terms of accessible fitness classes for a broad demographic of jumpers:

“We also have fantastic friendly and helpful staff, who make all customers feel at home, whether they are first timers or regulars. As such, our customers are very loyal and many of them come back week after week.

Air Factory Trampoline Park – St Helens
With 100 inter-linked trampolines, dodgeball, basketball, and professional-level, Olympic trampolines, it’s fair to say Air Factory were always going to warrant inclusion in our list of the best trampoline parks in the UK. That’s not to say, however, that the park has forgotten how to have fun. With regular DJ nights on the last Friday of every month, Trampoline battle beam games, foam pits. dodgeball facilities, and even a ball pool, Air Factory have everything you could possibly need to have the time of your life.
Our students and readers were also quick to point out the effectiveness of their trampoline fitness classes which, along with everything else in this venue, are comprehensive and fun. The venue is keen to promote the inclusiveness of their classes, and it should be emphasises that jumpers of all abilities are welcome to go and give it a try.
Best Indoor Trampoline Parks in the Midlands
Red Kangaroo Nottingham
Red Kangaroo Nottingham is one of the largest venues in the midlands: when they say they have “wall-to-wall trampolines,” they really aren’t exaggerating. Among the many trampoline-related activities, the indoor trampoline park also includes Wipe-out facilities, a mega Ninja course (enough to warrant inclusion in our list of best trampoline parks alone), a tumble track allowing for more acrobatic somersaults, and a double cardio reaction wall.
Indeed, many of our students recommended Red Kangaroo Nottingham exactly for the facilities they provide in terms of gymnastics and fitness, in particular their high intensity “KANGA Fitness” classes, during which participants can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour.
“For some, the social pressures surrounding a visit to the gym may be daunting. Where trampoline parks like RedKangaroo Nottingham come in is that we offer exercise dressed up as fun. Accessible for all, RedKangaroo provides the chance to get fit together in a relaxed, low pressure environment, where every individual can exercise at their own pace regardless of perceived fitness levels or abilities.

“There are so many health and wellbeing benefits to trampolining from building muscle strength to increasing cardiovascular fitness, improving co-ordination, and significantly reducing stress. Ten minutes of trampolining is believed to be a more efficient cardiovascular workout than 30-minutes of running. It is also lower impact on joints compared to other forms of exercise.”

In addition to open bounce sessions, the venue runs after school and family bounce sessions, making it hugely popular with a wide variety of ages. They also have more specialist equipment and facilities. For example, Super Tramp offers the South West’s #1 Wall Running set up, combining the skills of trampolining with parkour. In addition to hugely popular workshops for wall running, Super Tramp’s Superfit exercise class was recommended highly by our students and readers. These 60 minute trampoline fitness classes have all the benefits of a high intensity gym session, but are a lot more fun!
Best Indoor Trampoline Parks in Wales
Infinity Trampoline Park – Cardiff
With over 70 interconnected trampolines, vault boxes, tumble tracks, and more, Infinity Park is one of those special indoor trampoline parks that cherish flexibility and creativity for their customers. As you might imagine, the park is aimed at a wide range of ages, running everything from family sessions and parties, to the hugely popular Infinity Active sessions. Indeed, the fitness side of Infinity Trampoline Park really stands out, with a host of qualified instructors offering everything from introductions to trampoline fitness, to intense aerobic trampoline classes. What’s more, as one of the oldest centres in the UK, Infinity Park is a trailblazer in terms of design and innovation, with many high-end parks subsequently taking inspiration from their early ideas.
“Infinity Trampoline Park in Cardiff was one of the first parks in the UK to open, but what we take pride in is the revolution in trampoline parks that we initiated. Before we opened, parks were typically very flat (ironically). The idea of connecting trampolines in a long expanse was very common abroad and in the UK, and using our experience in extreme sports, we wanted to create something that would take trampoline parks to the next level. We spent months pouring over the design of Infinity Cardiff, and used raised platforms, vault boxes, and other parkour-inspired features to create an experience unrivalled in the UK. We designed a ‘performance wall’ section that involves bouncing on your back and running up the wall, with multiple levelled platforms allowing advanced users to unlock a whole new dimension of freestyle tricks and manoeuvres.
“Since we opened, we frequently hear of other park operators taking inspiration from our design and take pride in this.
“Our whole Infinity Team and ethos revolves around personality, customer engagement and enthusiasm for the freestyle niche that we’ve created. Because of this, we’ve secured a 5 star rating across Facebook and Trip Advisor, and display a Trip Advisor certificate of excellence with pride. We’ve also won several local, regional and even national awards, with more ‘finalist’ status secured for upcoming ceremonies. Examples include – Wales Start Up of the Year 2017 in the Leisure & Tourism sector, Inspiring Entrepreneur of the Year at the national Start Ups Awards, and finalists for Entrepreneur of the Year at the Cardiff Business Awards (announcing June 15th) and finalist for the Elite Awards’ Fitness Award (announcing June).”
Hangar Five – Pembrokeshire
Hangar Five is another seriously popular trampoline park, known throughout Wales and the UK. With around 10,000 square feet of interconnected trampolines, including special features like angled walls, an airbag for stunts, slam dunk basketball courts, dodgeball areas, and facilities for volleyball, Hangar Five have enough equipment to compete with the best trampoline parks in the UK.
What’s more, the venue is popular for kids’ parties, meaning that staff are fully trained and friendly, and that the venue has additional facilities like a soft play area to cater for every child’s need. For adults, there are the hugely popular (and effective) Rebound classes: trampoline fitness classes designed to give a full body workout without any stress on joints.
“We think that Hangar 5 is so highly regarded by our readers and our customers because of the dedication of myself, Mandy, and indeed all our staff to make sure that every bouncer that visits Hangar 5 Trampoline park is treated the same way.Customer satisfaction and safety really are at the top of our list. We also have the Hang 5 café serving Hot and Cold Food/Drink, Birthday parties which are very very popular at Hangar 5, and loads of fantastic reviews.”
