Jump Inc FAQ
With over 440 wall-to-wall trampolines across our three parks in Yorkshire and awesome activities for all your thrill seekers out there, we want to make sure you’re all confident on the springs.
If you’re a Jump regular, you’ll know everything there is to know about Jump, however some of our newbies have had some questions so to make sure you’re all experts, here are the answers to your frequently asked questions…
What do I wear?
Bouncing around is super exciting so you’ll probably break a bit of a sweat. We want you to be able to move freely so that you can nail the flips and tricks you’re wanting to learn, so we suggest that you wear shorts or leggings and a t-shirt. We’re pretty casual here at Jump so no one will expect you to come in your fresh, best threads – you’ll look good just walking into into the park anyway.
It doesn’t matter what shoes you wear, you’ll take them off and swap them for our specially designed safety socks at the door, these cost £1.50.
What do I wear to Jump Fit?
We’d definitely suggest you wear your average gym gear, leggings or shorts, a sports bra (ladies), and a loose fitting top because you will get hot! Don’t forget to bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated and your Jump safety socks (if you don’t have any you can buy them at reception), you can stash your trainers in the lockers which are £1 (which is refundable!)
For those with piercings, we’d suggest you take out anything long and dangly. Thankfully, our trampolines aren’t like your old school’s gym with big holes in them, but we don’t want you to catch your jewellery on a piece of clothing or someone else… so just keep it to little studs if you can. This also applies to nice bracelets and necklaces you may have. Basically, if you would be upset if you lost it bouncing round a trampoline-filled warehouse it’s best to leave it at home.
How long do I get?
You get an hour in total on the springs, but please arrive a little early so that you have time to check in, put your Jump socks on and watch the very important safety video. 20 minutes early will be enough because we don’t want all the boring stuff eating into your bouncing time!
Can I come and watch?
Sure! Wave your little jumpers off, grab a coffee and take a seat upstairs on our mezzanine for ultimate viewing experience. We have free wifi and irresistible cakes and snacks from our cafe you can munch on while they tire themselves out.
Is there an age limit?
To ensure everyone is safe, only children aged six years or older may jump unaccompanied in the main arena.
Ages five and under must be accompanied by a participating person age 14 or over. This is to make sure big people don’t accidentally bump into small people. We also have Jump Toddler sessions made specifically for your little ones on each weekday morning (term time) between 11am and 12pm. You must be aged 14 and over to be left in the building without an adult.
Please note, an age-restriction applies at Jump Inc Sheffield due to the nature of the equipment and facilities there. Children must be at least six years old to take part in an open jump and we recommend that all jumpers are over 1.25m in height as a lot of our activities have this height restriction (this also applies to birthday parties).
Can I bring my older kids to Jump Toddler?
Our Jump Toddler sessions take place every weekday during term time from 11am – 12pm across all parks.
Unfortunately, the beauty of Jump Toddler is that it’s designed specially for little legs, so we’re unable to accommodate older children. We turn the lights up, grab the soft toys and play all under 5’s favourite disney songs for them to sing along to, so bigger kids probably won’t want to be seen there anyway… We also don’t allow the bigger kids on in these sessions for safety reasons. It gives the little ones chance to bounce around freely without worrying about being overshadowed by big kids.
Where do I put my stuff?
You can either leave it with whoever has brought you, or we have lockers on site which are £1 (you’ll get it back) and they do take the new pound coins.
Do I have to fill in a waiver?
No, the waiver is part of the T&Cs you accept when you book so it’s all covered – don’t worry.
When does your Lincoln park open?
Unfortunately, we haven’t got a definite date as of yet – we’re hoping the park will be open by end of 2017, however, we can’t guarantee anything!
Hopefully this should answer most of your questions, but if you’ve still got a burning question don’t be afraid to give us a shout on our Facebook or Twitter and our awesome team will get back to you ASAP!
