Bounce Dubai launches Floor is Lava competition

X-Park parkour contest arrives on Friday August 4

A one-off competition is coming to Bounce Dubai this August, invoking childhood memories of leaping across living room furniture, trying to keep off a floor that has transformed into lava.

The Floor is Lava, a game popularised by a series of online videos, is coming to X-Park at Bounce Dubai on Friday August 4. Teenagers aged between 13 and 18 can enter the competition, which challenges contestants to stay off the ground while navigating the parkour-inspired assault course in the quickest time possible.

The fee of Dhs120 grants not only participation in the competition, but also three-hour access to every single trampoline area across the Al Quoz venue, including trampoline basketball, wall-running and more.

If you’re considering battling for the championship, arrive at 4.30pm in time for the warm-up, right before the battles begin at 5pm (until 8.30pm).

The three teens who complete the course in the fastest time, without touching the floor, will win a GoPro or a BOUNCE Dubai exclusive Flight Academy Course worth Dhs1,500.

As yet there’s no word on an adults’ edition, but here’s hoping…

Dhs120. Fri Aug 4, 5pm-8.30pm. Bounce Dubai, Al Quoz, www.bounce.ae (04 321 1400).
