Safety Rules & Guidelines

Safety is our number 1 priority

Please understand the risks & take care. BOUNCE is an action sports facility where injuries can happen. Like all sports, participants need to decide if the benefits of involvement are worth the risk of injury. Jumping, rebounding using trampolines creates the risk for potential injury even when being safe. The potential for injury is greatly reduced when you:

Jump Safe
Jump within your skill level
Follow the rules
Watch out for other jumpers

The whole point of BOUNCE is to have as much fun as possible jumping around. A critical part of this is a safe and soft environment to enjoy a real sense of freedom. Our rules and guidelines are designed to keep everyone safe and minimize the chance of injury. Rules are shown below in 3 categories: General Safety Rules (apply to the whole center), BOUNCE Area Specific Rules and BOUNCE-X Area Specific Rules.
You will also find these rules displayed around BOUNCE. Please read them carefully and follow them.

Junior Jumpers

Junior Jumpers are ‘walking age’ kids developing early stage movement skills in balance, coordination and agility. Available to book only where JJ symbol is displayed. Junior Jumpers can access most areas and have a dedicated section.

Keeping Kids Safe

BOUNCE ensures that all venues are safe and supportive places for children and young people to attend.

Area Specific Rules

  1. Take extra care – trampolines in this area provide superior height & a greater degree of difficulty & risk. Jumpers must be over 125cm in height. Don’t jump or land on the padding – it is there as a safety precaution. Don’t attempt any activity beyond your skill level. Only one person on each trampoline at a time. Never land on your head or enter the big bag backwards. BOUNCE crew members monitor safety strictly & their direction must be followed.

  2. The Wall is for advanced jumpers only. BOUNCE crew members monitor the area strictly. Jumpers must be over 125cm in height. Only one jumper permitted on each wall trampoline at any time. Ensure no one is on the trampoline bed before jumping off The Wall. Only stand on top of the wall when you are actively using one of The Wall trampolines. No climbing or scrambling up The Wall – if you can’t ‘run up’ develop your skills in other areas first.

  3. Never dive head first into the pit. Don’t enter if others are in the way. Safely land on your bum or back. Spread your legs & bend your knees when entering the pit. Don’t bury yourself in the pit as others may jump on you without knowing. Remove all items from pockets. Exit as quickly as you can.
