Youngsters will be jumping for joy this summer as a Great Yarmouth trampoline park has just launched a state-of-the-art soft play area.

Jump Warehouse opened seven years ago in Main Cross Road and it boasts 40 trampolines, which includes an air bag and basketball area. 

In May 2021, director John Wilson launched a second branch in Diss at the former Monsters soft play site and added trampolines.

The success of the Diss Jump Warehouse with the combination of both activities prompted him to give the original site a £120,000 revamp.

Mr Wilson said: "After seven years things were worn and needed to be changed.

"We also found that our customer-base had got a lot younger so we needed to provide something to suit that.

"You have got to move with the times and now parents can come in with children of different ages with something to do for all of them." 

The soft play area is for children up to 12, with parents allowed to accompany them in quieter times, and it includes a rope bridge, slide, electronic windows lit up with bugs and fish, and a floor piano.

There are refurbished toilets and new carpets at the site too. 

The existing upstairs café is getting renovated over the next few months and will become a restaurant.

To make room for the new additions, dodgeball will no longer be offered. 

Mr Wilson added: "We soft launched last week and so far the reaction has been very positive.

"The proof will be in the pudding, but I think the site was ready for it and Covid allowed me to reset and evaluate where the business was."
