Malaysia’s first indoor trampoline park has opened next to Jaya One mall in the heart of old PJ, bringing the “thrill of flight” to kids and adults, debutants and high-flyers alike. With numerous interconnected trampolines covering the floor and walls of the 9000²ft arena, plus 2 dodge ball courts, 3 foam pit launching lanes, a kid’s court and a giant air bag, this urban playground will surely bring out the child in all of us.
Having trampolined throughout my childhood, I was eager to dust off my bouncing legs and head out for some gravity-defying fun! Upon entering Jump Street, I was consumed by its exciting atmosphere and vibrant energy. The cheerful staff couldn’t have been friendlier and sent me on my way with my mandatory grip socks and an “it’s all yours”.
Over at the dodge ball area, a highly tense tournament was in full swing between a group of younger kids, all in high spirits, laughing and screaming with their new friends. Meanwhile, a group of teens took turns hurling themselves into the jumble of foam cubes before struggling back to solid ground. After trying out the main arena, which is carpeted with slightly firmer beds (great for beginners or for those who just want to bounce around with their friends), I was drawn to the ‘high performance’ area. Here, there are Olympic spec. trampolines where you can test out your skills under the watchful eye of Jump Street’s qualified Malaysian and Australian ‘referees’. For the more confident bouncer, this is a great place to get some tips, advice and demonstrations to improve your moves.
Jump Street’s in-house café offers spacious seating, quality coffee, healthy smoothies and a selection of sandwiches and wraps. It is the perfect place for mums to catch-up. There were even a few ‘business dads’ getting some work done on their laptops while the trampolines ‘babysat’ their little-uns! Post-bounce, head here for their unique ‘thunder juice’ made with beetroot, carrot, ginger and apple; a great shot of rehydration.
All in all, I greatly enjoyed my hour of bouncing at Jump Street, my only qualm being that, much unlike the arctic conditions of most of KL’s indoor spaces, Jump Street’s scattering of ceiling fans did not suffice in cooling the thick air. Five minutes in and I was downing water by the bottle!
