We were excited to be contacted by the people at Jumpin Inflatable a couple of months ago who told is they were opening a new inflatable fun park ion Derby, where we live. The kindly invited us along to try it out so we could review and share our thoughts with you all.
Jump In opened in August and is located right near the city centre on Siddals Road. One hour slots are available to bounce in the Main Zone and you are able to use the Free zone for half an hour while you wait for your slot, as well as for half an hour after. When you arrive you pay and are given a coloured wristband which signals your time slot to start. Then you are asked to complete a waiver at the computers which is pretty quick and easy and there are instructions on the wall to help. We were then taken into an area behind the reception desk to watch the safety briefing video.
The staff were friendly and more than happy tho help. The lockers were not working and everyone was leaving their shoes in one of the party rooms. As Ste had a bag containing his medications which he did not want to leave in an unlocked, unsupervised room, he woke to the staff who kindly locked them away for us. Even though they were super busy the staff worked really well to keep things moving quickly for everyone. The video was short and informative – not too long or boring so the kids stayed engaged for the whole thing!
Normal socks have to be worn to bounce (no extra costs like some places where you have to buy their socks)
We were then allowed to use the Free Zone as it was approximately 15 minutes until our time slot. This had the biggest ball pit I had EVER seen! It looked like amazing fun and the boys absolutely loved it. There were staff in the ball pool as well as stood on the outside of it. The staff in the ball pool were great with the kids – playing ball games and having fun even though they got battered by balls constantly! There was also another game to play but the boys were more than happy in the ball pit.
We were then called over the tannoy to enter the Main Zone. We walked in and all the boys went WOW (including Ste) and ran off into eh inflatable obstacle course, leaving me bouncing at the entrance!
We all absolutely loved the place, there was so much to do and it totally wore us out! Leo and Ste had a go at the inflatable boxing, Riley loved the big jump onto the air pillow and both boys found the football area of course!
Me and Ste managed to last 40 minutes before we headed up to the cafe area which overlooks the main area so you can keep an eye on the kids. The boys loved it and were sad to leave. I am sure we will be visiting again, especially while the weather is so rainy and we are struggling to burn off our energy as normal outdoors.
Have lots of Jumpin fun,
