The only inflatable theme park in Essex opened in Thurrock last night and was marked with a VIP launch party. More than 250 people, including 100 competition winners bounced into the Jump Giants trampoline park site to try out the new 10,000 square foot Air Park.
Jump Giants has run a competition on its web site and social media channels for the last few weeks, which has given hundreds of local residents the opportunity to win party passes, air passes and VIP preview entry to the launch party itself.
“Inflatable theme parks are the hottest new thing around when it comes to indoor leisure activities, and we’re delighted to bring the first one to Essex. Ideal for all the family, the Air Park has a ‘Major League’ section for adults and bigger kids, along with a large, dedicated ‘Little League’ area for those aged five years and under. It sits perfectly next to our 28,000 square foot Trampoline Park,” commented founder and owner Mark Gardner.
The Major League bouncers can enjoy steep rival slides, a climbing wall, stepping stones, a wrap-around obstacle circuit, Biff and Bash (air filled pillars that jumpers have to barrel through), and a Bubbly Bed, where jumpers can get extra air.
The huge ‘Little League’ section has a small slide into a ball pit, soft play toys, puzzles games and wobble platforms, all designed to allow younger kids to play at their own pace.
Following 3 months of renovation of the Thurrock site, the Air Park is now open to the public, entry fees to the Air Park are £11 for the Major League and £6 for the Little League. A £16 combination pass will also be available for those wanting to enjoy both the Air Park and the Trampoline Park.
