Review: Jump In Trampoline Park Ipswich

Review by Pia Howe at Toddle About Suffolk

We’ve been invited to Jump In Trampoline Park in Ipswich formerly known as Bounce. We hadn’t been to a trampoline park for a very long time and with kids bouncing around the house (now 6 and 11 yrs old) I was thankful giving the garden trampoline a break. 

So we packed our grip socks watched the safety video at home (to save time on arrival and reduce queue time) and off we went. If you haven’t got any grip socks by the way, they are available to purchase onsite for £2.50 and are then yours to keep. 

Wristbands for each time slot are being given to avoid overcrowding and you are being called off the trampolining area once your session is over, which works a treat. We booked the 11am slot which wasn’t too busy. There are lockers onsite for your valuables and a cafe with plenty of choice for refreshments (which you will need!) and food and, of course, free Wifi. 

We had a 1.5 hours jump session, which was plenty of time to jump around and test all the equipment. From dodgeball, foam pits, battle beam, wipe out, giant airbag, slam dunk, there is plenty of choice and fun for all ages. 

If you’ve never been to a trampoline park before - don’t worry about bumping into other people - you are not. Imagine lots of smaller trampolines interconnected, creating one large trampoline area and the rules clearly state one person per trampoline to avoid bumping into other people. It’s so much fun jumping from one trampoline the next!

You can even bounce off the walls, which I miserably failed at by the way. 

Friendly staff is onsite to keep an eye on everything but especially for younger children, parental supervision is recommended at all times. 

My boys are going wild when it comes to jumping so while they were showing of their front flips and fancy moves I decided it was my time to release some energy. Yes, trampolining is also for adults! Well, for a 40 year something mum with a weak pelvic floor it may not sound like a good idea but what fun I had bouncing around like a young child with a big grin on my face. (Oh boy my abs were hurting the next day!!)

The foam pits were a great hit with the little ones allowing you to jump off into a giant pool of grey foam cubes but getting out of them (as an adult) isn’t as easy as it looks. You have been warned!

The Dodgeball area has large netting around the area and plenty of balls to through around. There isn’t any structure to the game and it can get quite wild if older children are mixed with younger ones so my 6 year old wasn’t too keen on it whereas the 11 year old loved it. 

My eldest loves basketball so the Slam Dunk was his favourite. The aim is to jump on a trampoline and slam dunk or throw the ball through the hoop and there are 3 different heights depending on your size and ability. 

If you do have toddlers you may be pleased to know that Jump In are offering toddler time sessions, which run from 10am - 11am every Monday - Friday and 9-10am on a Saturday during the holiday period. 

Jump In also has as giant indoor play park onsite, formerly known as Billy Beez with a very cute interactive play area, baby area, climbing areas and some wild slides the kids will love. Yes I know what you are thinking, the dreaded fear of walking into a soft play area and that smell of greasy food and stinky feet...well I can tell you - there was none of that. The entire area, including the cafe, was clean and bright and very welcoming.

My boys really enjoyed the interactive role play area which they spent a considerable time in and were fully engrossed in pretend play which gave me the chance to sit down and have cuppa. The role play 'village' is gated to give the little one some space and the structures are very well made with a lot of attention to detail. I think if the boys hadn't been so tired from the trampoline park they would have stayed and played a lot longer. 

The cafe, like most places nowadays, has an online ordering system in place to avoid queuing at the cafe.  The food and drink is then being brought to your table once ordered via their website. 

The baby and sensory area is very clean and colourful and great fun for the little ones. I underestimated the size of the play park as it looks fairly small when you first walk in. As you walk further along you discover the larger climbing areas at the back with some fun tunnel slides and a drop slide.  It took quite a bit of convincing but they did go down the thrilling slides in the end. (you can watch all our videos on our Instagram Reel)

Please remember to bring soft play socks as you are not allowed to wear your grip socks in the play park due to safety reasons. You don’t want the grip to prevent the sliding fun!

After 2 hours of fun the boys (and me included) where absolutely shattered, sweaty and exhausted. Result!
The boys went to bed no problem that evening (surprise, surprise!) and as for me - well I shall be doing more pelvic floor exercises…

Never been trampolining before? GO ON! Give it a go! It's a great day out for all the family we can highly recommend!

Jump In are also offering birthday parties if you stuck for ideas and have plenty of private party rooms available. You can book your trampolining session, soft play and birthday parties online via their website at
