The Council is welcoming another major business to Blackburn that is sure to add a spring into the step of visitors.
Flip Out, the fastest-growing trampoline park operator in the world, has confirmed its new site in Blackburn will open on July 29.
The 40,000-sq. ft. trampoline park on Haslingden Road will cater for 250 jumpers at any one time, making it the biggest trampoline arena in Lancashire.
The new arena will boast the world’s largest stunt box as well as 140 interconnected trampolines, foam pits, a total wipe out course, a trampoline football zone, ninja warrior course, dodge ball, battle beams, slam dunk basketball hoops, and a designated kid trampoline zone for children of six years and under.
Flip Out will also be the first trampoline park in the North West of England to have a laser maze.
The park will also be running fitness classes from September including trampoline training for under 14’s, mini flippers sessions with reduced rates for mother/fathers and toddlers and “After Dark” late night sessions for over 14’.
The park also caters for parties and corporate events and host sessions for children with sensory or learning disabilities.
Councillor Phil Riley, Executive Member for Regeneration at Blackburn with Darwen Council, said: “We are delighted to welcome this hugely successful business to Blackburn and believe it will not only prove popular with residents but also attract more visitors to our town. Flip Out will be yet another string to Blackburn’s bow which coupled with the multi million pound regeneration is improving our offer all the time.”
Matt Nelson, Flip Out Blackburn Managing Director, commented: “We’re very much looking forward to opening Flip Out Blackburn, having identified a clear demand for a trampoline park in the area. With our opening date falling in the middle of the school summer holidays, we hope to encourage kids and parents alike to get active during the summer break.”
