Bounce: Defying the laws of gravity


One of the perks of my hobby as a freelance writer for Trend Frenzy Magazine is I get to go to awesome events that case the best of South Africa. A week ago I was invited to the exclusive VIP launch of Bounce South Africa. This is a first in South Africa and is going to be an awesome addition to the Johannesburg activities scene.

Bounce is a worldwide franchise of trampoline parks. In America, where the concept came from, many trampoline parks were old, dirty and unsafe. The owner of the franchise decided to make a trampoline park that was big, bright, airy and full of competent friendly staff. Thus Bounce was born.

The South African version is situated in the Waterfalls lifestyle centre, on the corner of Woodmead and Maxwell Drive. This massive venue has over 28 interconnected trampolines and different activity areas. Each area has one or dedicated referrers who explain the rules, give you a high 5 and keep a watchful eye on all jumpers.

Each session is an hour long and when you pay for entrance you get your very own bounce socks to keep. No sharing! Prices range from R140 and up. There are various different packages for parties, children and even corporates. Booking online saves you the hassle but you can walk in any time too.

Read more about my review in the June edition of Trend Frenzy. So, go get your bounce on!

If there’s not a Bounce! near you, check out Indoor Trampoline Park Avondale.
