Since it opened in June 2014, UAE residents have been flocking to indoor trampoline park, Bounce.

Venue manager Greg Campbell and co-founder and C.O.O Doran Davies, previously told us: ‘Bounce kind of fuses trampolining with parkour – free-running – hence, free-jumping. It’s about trying to reduce your limitations. You don’t need a gold medal in acrobatics to jump on a tramp, you just have to go for it and we want to provide an experience where that’s accessible to anyone and everyone.’

He added: ‘There’s the free-jumping area, which is about 50 trampolines all stitched together where you can just do whatever you want, and a dodgeball arena to add a competition element. There’s a big airbag so people can try out flips in a safe way, and then for the guys who want to hone their skills there’s a performance area that really makes us unique when it comes to other trampoline offerings locally. The performance area is where people do things like wall-running, which is very popular and not that difficult to do.’
