You might have heard of or experience Zoom Park - the largest indoor trampoline park in Singapore located at Pandan Gardens. It seems to be a growing trend and children as well as adults are garnering interest in trampoline. While we did not have the opportunity to visit the park locally, we ended driving over 20km and landed ourselves at Zoom Park Johor Bahru.
Since it was our first visit and the first time our kiddos jumped in an indoor trampoline park, I decided to let our boy do the honour to share his experience in his first Guest Post.
Welcome to Zoom Park - Indoor Trampoline Park (JB)!
Before anyone can enter and start jumping on the trampolines, we have to first sign a waiver. "No waiver = No entrance!" This is a MUST for first timers. The waiver can be completed at the Waiver Station or simply visit their website www.zoomparkasia.com through your mobile device to complete the form.
Purchasing of "Zoom Grip Socks" is compulsory as the socks have special grips to ensure we do not slip and fall while jumping. Safety First! There are various sizes available and each pair only cost RM5! Daddy even bought an extra pair as the quality of the socks is pretty good and cost less than S$2.
Newcomers to the trampoline park should also watch the safety video on how to play safely and what is not allowed in the park.
The Main Court is where the young and old alike have a whale of a time jumping about. Also, since the park is cushioned, we do not have to worry about injuring ourselves. Do note that only one person is allowed on each trampoline for safety reasons.
Welcome to the Rock Wall! This is where the bold and daring would try to scale the wall and reach the top. Thanks to the foam, we would have no worries of falling down. However, being a scardey-cat and someone who has acrophobia (fear of heights), I did not attempt to scale it.
If you are daring and enjoy parkours, try to climb the Fidget Ladder and reach the net. My sister, being the braver one, climbed it but stopped halfway as the ladder was fidgeting too much! Well, at least she tried.
The Foam Pit is a popular place among kids and teens as they can perform many jumping stunts without hurting themselves. Seeing younger kids doing a flip into the pit really put me to shame. Nevetheless, I still enjoyed jumping into the pool of foam. :)
The Air Bag has a long, strong and stiff rope tied across it for people to tightrope across it like a real acrobatic. I heard that someone had crossed the line successfully without help or falling. I was really impressed and dumbfounded as I could not even balance myself on the line to start with!
Too short to throw a basketball into the hoop? With the trampoline, we can jump on it to get higher and shoot the ball! This will even allow the tall ones to do a Slam Dunk, thus its name. Did my Daddy perform a dunk? Neh... I think he can almost reach the basket with his height!
If you enjoy running, try running and jumping on the Tumble Tracks and bounce your body back by landing on the trampoline with your body sideways. I thoroughly enjoyed having the sensation of my body being pushed backwards by another force.
Saving the best for last! High Performance - This is my sister's and my favourite spot where we would spent ages just jumping on the trampoline. According to the staff, the two trampolines here are the most expensive setup throughout the park. This explains why there are only two and children who did not meet a minimum height of 1.2m cannot jump here. The trampolines are sturdier allowing us to jump greater heights and do stunts.
Thanks to the staff on duty who taught us patiently, I finally mastered one stunt (i.e. bouncing back up to standing position after landing in a sitting pose). The 2nd stunt (back flip) was harder and I have yet to execute it to perfection. It was a great attempt and we burnt a lot of calories in a short span of 1.5 hours. We were told that jumping on the trampoline for 10 minutes is equivalent to running for 30 minutes! You can jolly tell how much energy was used just looking at my sister's expression.

The Exhausted Me - after spending a long time jumping at High Performance. :)
This obstacle at the Main Court is the hardest to overcome in my opinion. Even with the help of trampolines, it was challenging to run, jump and get to the top. The momentum and pace has to be right! It took me an exhausting 20 minutes to get on to the "peak" and that was with the help of my mom who gave me a push and boosted me up! Then again... WE MADE IT!!
We had a great time at Zoom Park and we definitely would stop by to jump again!
