BOUNCE, one of the world’s best indoor adrenaline-packed arena that combines recreation, fitness and fun opens at the heart of Orchard Road.
And yes, it is the newest trampoline park in town!
Located at Cathay Cineleisure Orchard, BOUNCE features three zones on a 24,000 sq ft arena which consists of trampolines (including an Olympic grade, high performance area), X-Park (a ninja warrior-like obstacle course & the first in Asia), and Leap of Faith. More than enough adrenaline fun to keep everyone in the family entertained, if you ask me!
Best of all, BOUNCE Singapore caters to almost everyone from kids aged three and above to youths, adults and fitness enthusiasts.
And if you are planning to take the kids, there are SEVEN activities at BOUNCE for them to go bonkers over. Well actually, count the adults in as well!
Free Jumping Area
With 28 interconnected trampolines incorporating a series of longer tumble tracks and angled banked wall, this spring-loaded urban playground is the perfect place to Jump, Bounce. Jump, Bounce. Jump, Bounce. And repeat.
Who knew jumping on the trampolines could be this much fun? In fact, everyone was having such a carefree time jumping around that we hardly noticed that we were in the middle of a cardio workout.
Yes, in case you didn't know, according to a study completed by NASA, a 10 minute jump on a trampoline is equivalent to a 30 minute run! I will definitely take jumping over running anytime.
Exclusively for junior jumpers of at least 3 years of age and under 110cm in height, they will also have a designated jumping zone cordoned off for them from 10am – 4pm on weekdays and 10am – 12pm on weekends.
Here, one can launch oneself into the air via a trampoline and hurtle onto an enormous air bag. And it's strangely addictive!
Yes, I launched myself onto the Big Bag too.
No, the Big Bag did not burst.
Here, kids and parents can drive (or bounce) themselves up the wall. Literally.
With the aid of high-rebound capabilities of Performance Trampolines, jumpers will be able to run up the wall. No doubt Wall Running may take a while to master, but something tells me it should come with practice.
The Slam Dunk area features full-height rings sitting above runway trampolines, surrounded by padded walls and floor mats - the stage is all set to show off one's dunking prowess.
Otherwise known as "the place where everyone can hit each other with balls and NOT get into trouble", two teams throw soft ‘bowling ball’ sized dodgeballs at each other as they jump around the court. If you hit an opponent with a ball, that person is out. Last player bouncing wins.
If you have always haboured secret desires to test out a Ninja Warrior-styled obstacle course, this is your best bet.
BOUNCE Singapore is the first location in Asia to feature this signature indoor adventure challenge course – X-Park.
Designed to allow challenge and diversity for both first timers and free-running masters, this adventure obstacle course incorporates 15 different elements with varying routes for beginners through to experts.
So expect plenty of climbing, jumping, free-running and swinging.
Not all challenges can be completed by kids though as some are only meant for adults. But the beauty of the X-Park is that each element can be explored as a stand-alone challenge or navigated as one circuit with different levels of difficulty.
And for the grand finale - zipping on the aerial runway to the finish line!
Undoubtedly, the X-Park is the boys' fave activity of the lot!
Feeling competitive? Purchase an RFID (Radio-Frequency ID) band at the reception and time yourself against a friend! Simply swipe it against the RFID reader at the start and end of your X-Park challenge to track your timings on the big video wall. The RFID band is fully reusable and can be kept for future BOUNCE Singapore visits.
NOTE: Proper footwear – sneakers or sports shoes – is required to take on the X-Park adventure challenge course. A minimum 125cm height required for all participants.
Leap of Faith
Another first for Singapore, 'Leap of Faith' presents the ultimate personal challenge. Adventure junkies who love the rush of adrenaline can test their physical (and mental) limits by jumping from a raised platform and leaping out to catch hold of the grab bag.
NOTE: Additional charges apply for Leap of Faith. Tickets can only be purchased at the sales counter at $5 per jump or $10 per 3 jumps.
After jumping and clearing obstacles for one hour, I think it is safe to say that the boys were thoroughly exhausted.
For parents who wish to take the more chillax approach, South 38, BOUNCE’s very own café serves up a variety of Australian-styled café dishes including toasted sandwiches, muffins, milkshakes and Melbourne-style coffee made from fresh, air-flown Australian coffee beans. And yes, free Wi-Fi is available too.
Planning a birthday celebration? BOUNCE Singapore also has three Party Rooms that can hold a maximum of 20 pax per room or a total of 60 pax combined. Visit HERE for more details on party packages.
In addition, fitness classes will also be launched at a later date. Classes in the pipeline are Bounce Fit – much like aerobics on trampolines, Flight Academy – where participants will learn cool tricks on trampolines and lastly, Mini Bounce classes for the kids.
- It is compulsory for all participants to purchase a pair of specially designed BOUNCE Grip socks ($3/pair) before entry into the adrenaline arenas. The BOUNCE grip socks can be kept for future BOUNCE visits.
- Minimum age allowed to jump is 3 years old
- Weight limit of 120kg
- A session runs for 60mins & begins on the hour
- Jumpers are advised to arrive at least 20min before the session, to allow time for signing waivers, putting on socks and listening to the safety brief.
- Lockers will be available on-site for patrons to store their belongings.
- Toilets are located on the same floor.
I also have to give a special mention to all the BOUNCE staff stationed at the various activity areas. Everyone has to go through a short briefing before the start of every activity and the rules are adhered to strictly - one person per trampoline at all times, no rough play and minimal overcrowding at each activity area.
Pity that Ale could not join her brothers this time round but you know what that means... the boys will be using it as an excuse for us to visit BOUNCE one more time!
