Jump In Trampoline Park in Edinburgh is situated in East Lothian (just outside Musselburgh) and is only 5 minutes away from Fort Kinnaird in the Newhailes Industrial Estate. It's a massive building from the outside which told us there would probably be lots of fun to be had on the inside. As the Scottish summer holidays are in full swing the current opening hours are; Mon - Fri 10am to 7pm, Fri 10am to 9pm and Sat, Sun 10am to 7pm. It gives you plenty of time to entertain the kids (or the adults) and if the weather changes you always have options which is quite nice.
There are lots of different jumping options available at Jump In so I'd advise you to check out the website before you go but as a guide a 1 Hour Open Jump Session at peak time costs £10.60 for 5 years + and under 5's are £5 regardless of peak times at the moment. There's other options such as Toddler Time, Friday Night Takeover, Relaxed Sessions, Fitness Classes and Jump & Play (which include the use of the new soft play) but do check the website for all the details. It's worth noting that booking online will save you £2 as there's a £2 walk-in charge at the door. You will of course need to purchase some Jump In socks which are £2.50 each.
As well as the increased opening hours the fab new summer passes are now available and can be purchased for use up until 31st August 2019. Choose from £35 for five one-hour jump sessions or £60 for 10 one-hour jump sessions. And you can share the fun around as the passes can also be used by friends and family to enjoy Jump In together. I think this is great as normally you have to buy a pass for each person at some kids places but not Jump In. When you purchase the summer pass online you will be sent a unique code to use when booking, via the website or Contact Centre on 01926 356290. Visit: www.gojumpin.com and select Open Jump. Please do read the full terms and conditions. And jumpers will have no trouble cooling down with the Summer Fest special offer – when you buy three Slush drinks, there’s a free fourth one! (Valid throughout July and August).
When we arrived at Jump In we had to sign our waivers (these can be done online for quickness), collect our wristbands and socks and watch the 3 minute safety video before jumping on the trampolines. There's ample locker space to store your bags and shoes which are reusable with a £1 coin. There's plenty of seating beside the little cafe if anyone just wants to watch and more seating situated above the cafe so you can see the whole jumping arena.
The kids couldn't wait to get stuck in and bounce so we all jumped on to enjoy the fun. There's tons of trampolines for everyone and different areas to discover. There's the main jumping area, a dodgeball court, interactive wall to test your skills, battle beam, giant air bag, tumble track, twist ladder, drop slide and even a fancy new soft play which only opened at the end of June 2019. There really is tons to get involved in.
Everyone seemed to be having a ball and the kids had certain areas they really enjoyed. Harlow particularly liked the twist ladder where you had to climb up using your balance and ring the bell at the top. Logan really liked the battle beam where you knocked your opponents off into the foam pit. My friend's two girls loved bouncing around, the dodgeball court and investigating the soft play. The oldest even had a shot on the drop slide!! Very brave as it goes up really high. Of course the hubby had to try the drop slide as well didn't he ha ha. It was all good fun and we were treated to some slush drinks to quench our thirst. It's good to note there is water and cups available for free at the cafe if you get thirsty.
The whole venue looked very clean and tidy and we decided to treat ourselves to lunch after a whole 2 hours of mad jumping and exploring. We bought some pizzas and chips and they were so scrummy, the pizza looked and tasted homemade so I would highly recommend. We really all did have a fantastic day at the Jump In trampoline park in Edinburgh so if you're looking for something different to keep the kids occupied I'd suggest you get booked up and head along to have some fun.
This is a collaborative post. I was invited along to try out the venue in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
