The largest indoor trampoline park in Singapore opened its doors on Saturday. The 20,000 sq ft Zoom Park has more than 10 unique trampoline attractions, and these include a Dodgeball trampoline, one for rock-climbing and one called the Slam Dunk, where you play basketball.

One of its owners, Mr Viknesh Kumar, 37, told The New Paper that his sister-in-law, Ms Subhadra Devi Gupta, 43, came up with the concept of the park.

He explained: “Both of our kids loved the idea and the concept of the park, and they loved jumping on trampolines too. So we thought why not make it a family business and see where it goes.”

Mr Viknesh said a lot of money went into starting the park, but declined to say how much. He added: “Family, fitness and fun — these are the three things that we want to achieve (with the park).”

Visitors can jump for a rate starting from $7.50 for 30 minutes on weekdays and $9.50 on weekends. The park also provides special socks which provides extra grip while jumping, and all visitors must wear them to prevent slipping on the trampolines.
