— BOUNCE, the free-jumping revolution that has taken 30 countries by storm, has officially opened its doors in Jeddah and it's already proving a popular attraction.

The official opening was held on Sunday night here on Madinah Road with the attendance of a large number of trampoline enthusiasts, thrill seekers, social media influencers and media representatives.

The indoor park which is divided for one exclusively for women and one for men & families, consists of large trampolines laid out grid-style with soft foam padding covering the hard, metal frames. BOUNCE has installed over 100 trampolines with 12,000 springs.

The XPARK is the ultimate free-style playground featuring more than 15 elements, including a zip line, bouldering wall, Santa Monica swings and loads more. Designed to offer different levels of difficulty to allow for personal progression and creative expression, the challenge is to get from the start to the end of the course in the fastest and most awesome way possible.

It also offers fitness classes, open jump time, trampoline dodgeball, slam dunk basketball, foam pit jumping, and trampoline training classes taught by qualified instructors.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Mashael Attieh, the Saudi partner at BOUNCE, said: “BOUNCE Jeddah has been a long time coming and we’re excited to announce the doors are finally open! The launch of BOUNCE Jeddah is in line with one of the pillars of the Kingdom's vision 2030 and the newly appointed General Entertainment Authority in creating a vibrant society with exciting entertainment options, and tailored experiences to the needs of people from all walks of life around Saudi Arabia.”

She said it was the wish of my son to bring BOUNCE here in Jeddah, “Once he told me that I have started to negotiate with the founders in Dubai and here we are today celebrating the opening of BOUNCE.”

Doran Davies, Chief Operations Officer at BOUNCE, said: “BOUNCE Jeddah is our latest frontier in our Free Jumping Revolution and we are very excited to have it here in Jeddah. We understand how important sports for the Saudis and we are sure that Bounce will provide the ultimate indoor adrenaline rush.”

He added “people love to be active and have fun and we are giving them a safe environment to have unrivalled amounts of fun.”

Meanwhile, Ross Milton, co-founder of BOUNCE, said the phenomena started in Australia more than four years ago. “As founders, it all started because of our love for trampolines, free running, basketball and basically anything that gives you that same thrilling feeling.”

Milton said that BOUNCE has spread in 30 countries around the world and will be expanded in various cities in the Kingdom.
