What’s blue and bouncy and awesome fun for the whole fam? AMPED Trampoline Park, that’s what!
Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, it’s suitable for all ages — even moody teens will love this place. It’s pretty no-frills, but very well-organized as you book your time slot online (and fill in a waiver to say that if you fall on your head it’s not their fault), preventing it from getting too crazy. When you arrive, you pop your socks on, collect your coloured bracelet and get ready to jump around!
What do we love? Well, we adored the mix of funky (verging on cheesy) tunes, the mama waiting area so you can wait for your kiddo if they’re too cool to want to be seen with you, and actually, we loved having a bit of a bop about on the trampolines ourselves! Warning: it’s perhaps a little tough on the old pelvic floor! You and the little ones will soon be red-faced, sweaty and totally enjoying yourselves. Just don’t get tempted to try the old moves mama — you might strain something.
The space is huge, so when we went, big kids and teens were lurking as far to the back as they could go, leaving tinies plenty of space to hop about at the front and boogie. There’s a “foam pit” which is full of huge chunks of foam (waaaaaay more fun than a ball pool) which is fab for doing huge bounces and then launching yourself into, and plenty of little ledges to perch on if you need a breather.
As well as checking out one of the regular bouncing sessions, AMPED also organise trampolining classes for kids to work on their mad skillzzzzz, as well as offering party packages, which in our book would make for a fab activity for tweens in particular. Just so ya’ know, ages 3 and under need an adult bouncing with them (at no extra charge), and ages 4-11 need an adult on the premises.
At the end of our assigned hour, everyone felt thoroughly exhausted, and even us mamas felt like we’d had a real workout and enjoyed the endorphin hit too. AMPED is definitely a welcome addition to the Singapore activity scene, just remember to book in advance mama to avoid disappointment!
