Business partners Paul Quinn and Daniel Begley today opened JumpZone, Ireland and Europe's first trampoline park in Dublin's Sandyford with the creation of 50 new jobs.
Sites have already been identified outside of Dublin and in the UK for the next Jump Zone venues.
Built over 20,000 square feet, the inaugural European Jump Zone has capacity for over 50 jumpers at a time, as well as relaxation areas for parents, food areas and Kids Party/Corporate Party areas, accommodating a total of 150 children and adults. Opening hours are from approximately 9am - 7pm most days except Mondays (9am - 12pm). The indoor trampoline park is suitable for all ages from 5 to 55+ years of age and all jumpers and parents are required to sign a waiver and general release form before jumping and adhere to Jump Zone's strict health and safety regulations.
The cost is E10.00 per person for 1 hours jumping at Jump Zone. Jumpers are asked to arrive ten minutes early to prepare for their session.
The three party rooms include the Red Zone, Green Zone and the Blue Zone, which is equipped with Xbox Connect, and can host from 10 to 50 party-goers. There is the option for healthy food, such as gluten free and whole-wheat platters, as well as 'party' snack options for children's birthdays. Premium coffee is served for parents and there is WiFi available for Jumpers and their minders. The location also provides plenty of parking with over 60 spaces available.
Corporate packages include an hour of open jump; DodgeBall or cardio exercise; an hour of private meeting rooms and light refreshments at a cost of E20 per person, with the option of tailored packages also available.
DodgeBall, which is a huge craze in the US, will be on every evening and jumpers are being encouraged to get DodgeBall teams together now.
According to the space agency NASA rebound exercise is the most efficient, effective form of exercise yet devised by man. The NASA study claims that Trampolening is a low-impact workout that helps relieve stress and anxiety, tone muscles and improve co-ordination. The NASA study also found that 10 minutes bouncing on a trampoline is a better cardiovascular workout than 33 minutes of running.
