It’s a full body workout, fun and aimed at everyone aged three to 103 – and all you need is a special pair of socks.
Hangtime Trampoline Park is scheduled to open on Thursday, after months of teasing through social media. The latest venture from the team behind Hangdog Climbing Gym, Hangtime is the first facility of its kind in the region, offering floors and walls just waiting for the young and young at heart to bounce off.
“It is built on the same idea as Hangdog, offering something that is fun, exciting and good exercise,” said Hangtime and Hangdog owner Brett Baker.
The 800 square metre centre in Masters Road, Coniston, holds two performance trampolines, a large main jumping area, a dodgeball court and a basketball slam dunk alley. Guests can also bounce off the walls and dive into two foam pits.
Mr Baker said Hangtime would be the biggest trampoline park between Brisbane and Melbourne.
“Trampoline parks have been around in the USA for years, but they’re starting to catch on here in Australia now,” he said.
Separate sessions for small children will be offered, and capacity will be limited inside the centre. Aside from that, the only other thing patrons need to worry about is using a pair of special grip socks on the trampolines.
Mr Baker said trampolining could burn off up to 1000 calories per hour, and was vastly better exercise than treadmill running.
“We’ve got a bit for everyone, from kids’ parties to parkour enthusiasts,” he said.
