A NEW €1.3 million trampoline park called 'Jump Zone' is opening in Santry, creating 60 jobs in the largest facility of its kind anywhere in Europe.
Trampoline Park entrepreneurs Paul Quinn and Daniel Begley have announced that their second Jump Zone indoor trampoline facility is set to open its doors on March 28.
With an investment of €1.3 million, the new 35,000sq.ft premise will create over 60 jobs for the area and will feature Europe's first foam pit, two dodgeball courts and a main trampoline court.
Jump Zone Santry will become the company's flagship premises and the largest of its kind in Europe, and one of the largest in the world
Since opening its doors in Sandyford in October 2012, Jump Zone has become one of Ireland's most popular sports and entertainment attractions having catered for more than 100,000 visitors, 2,000 kids parties, over 500 corporate events, 100 school tours as well as weekly exercise classes.
Jump Zone Sandyford has become one of Dublin's most sought after kids party destinations where groups of up to 100 kids will enjoy private trampoline court hire, private party room, food and drinks while parents can relax with a freshly brewed coffee from our café leaving the staff to clean up any mess!
Having gained cult status with the 2004 movie 'Dodgeball', Jump Zone's trampoline Dodgeball courts need to be booked early due to phenomenal demand from young adults and corporate events.
Teams take to a purpose built trampoline Dodgeball court and battle it out to the last man bouncing with tournaments and competition being organised on a regular basis.
Adrenaline junkies can test their nerve in Europe's first state of the art trampoline Foam Pit where, under instruction, dare devils will have the chance to practice acrobatic jumps, spins and twists landing in the safety of a foam pit.
Fitness classes, known as Rebounding Revolution, have been a major draw for people looking for a fun alternative form of exercise.
The Rebound classes cater to people of all fitness levels and studies from NASA have proved that bouncing on a trampoline for 10 minutes is a better cardiovascular workout than 33 minutes of running.
It is also a low- impact exercise with 80 per cent of the shock being absorbed by the trampoline meaning that unlike most other sports you don't put unnecessary pressure on your muscles or bones.
Paul Quinn of Jump Zone said: 'We are incredibly proud to be opening our second Jump Zone facility which will not only be the largest of its kind in Europe but one of the largest in the world. Creating over 60 new jobs and launching a new entertainment venue not just for North Dublin but for all of Ireland is a dream come true for both Daniel and myself.
'Our doors are open and we are looking forward to welcoming people from 5 years of age upwards to our state of the art entertainment venue.'
