Zoom Park Singapore Opens!

Media Invite

Zoom Park Singapore

Ever since the wave of trampoline parks hit Singapore, I’ve been itching to bring my kids to visit one of them. We finally made it to one last weekend, and it was not just a trampoline park – It is THE LARGEST INDOOR TRAMPOLINE PARK in Singapore! That was an understatement, really. Zoom Park Singapore is not only packed with endless trampoline fun, it has cleverly weaved in many other fun and play elements as well. Think slam dunk and dodge ball – Just to name a few.
I thought I needed to orientate the girls and give them some rules about jumping safely and not hurt themselves unnecessarily, but they were off before I could even say ‘Excuse me?’ Can I blame them? Not when you step into a place looking THIS FUN:

Zoom Trampoline Park

The place is huge – but, of course – and it’s segregated into different areas for different types of play. Your first instinct when you step into Zoom Park Singapore, is definitely to jump onto one of the many trampolines at the mass play area. That’s a good idea actually, because it’s always good to warm up before you start playing proper. At Zoom Park Singapore, you’d find 2 dodgeball courts, a 4-lane foam pit, a 5-lane airbag, 3 basketball slam dunk lanes, 3 long tumble tracks stretching nearly 1,500 sq ft, a 4,200 square feet main court and a 17-metre rock wall, all designed for fun across all ages and to provide a fun environment for families, fitness junkies, and everyone else to get fit and have a great day out. I am already planning play dates with parent friends and also a get-fit day out with colleagues and friends!
I know some of you parents are already thinking to yourselves that this place is perfect for birthday parties – YES! There are three large party rooms available for booking, as well as specially themed Zoom Nights with laser lights and disco balls, pumped up music and glow-in-the-dark socks for healthy and fun partying. Sounds really cool, if you ask me.
My favorite area at that place has got to be the dodge ball court! There are soft rubber balls provided in the court and just get a few friends and you can start a game of your own. Love this twist to the conventional dodgeball game – Jump and hop on trampolines to escape the balls or throw a fast one at your opponents! The kids and I had such a fun time attacking the husband! Muahahahahaha!

How about those of you who has always dreamt of doing slam dunks but never succeeded (like me)? Zoom Park Singapore can make your dream come through. Need some practice beforehand though – I jumped as high as I could, but I still could not reach the rink. =X I am sure with more practice, I should be able to succeed (one day)!

Now, if you are already a professional trampoline jumper, you can have lots of fun here as well. This pitch is specially designed for the elites – or those who have gotten to expert level at trampoline jumping. Children below 1.2m will not be allowed onto these pitches. The very gungho me did a little jump there and they were right! You can really jump super high on these! I promptly returned to the safer trampolines.

Apart from jumping non-stop on trampolines, you can also have a go at the rock-climbing feature wall. This is a perfect rock-climbing wall for amateurs like me, because even if you fall, you’ll fall onto a bed of giant foam cubes. Super safe. =P That was Joey trying to do a jump split.

When you get tired of jumping up & down, jump right onto the bed of giant foam cubes and rest.

Some tips when you visit Zoom Park Singapore:
1. Come dressed comfortably for ease of movement – Ladies, don’t wear skirts of course, unless you want to show the whole world your under beauty. Tops should be fitted and do not fly up easily when you jump up and down.
2. Purchase the special socks from Zoom Park Singapore because they provide good grip and friction for more fun and safer play.

3. Don’t expect an air-conditioned play area – You are supposed to sweat it out when you are here, for goodness’ sake! I promise you, just 10 minutes on those trampolines will make you sweat buckets.
4. Bring your water bottles and replenish your fluids after play.
5. Don’t attempt any stunts unless you are trained or are really good at them. There are staff stationed all around just to make sure everyone is safe and not doing anything dangerous.
6. HAVE LOTS OF FUN!!!!!!! :)
My old bones needed a break after jumping non-stop with the girls for 30 minutes, and I sat down to watch some of the staff perform stunts. They were so awesome, and having so much fun!

I am really impressed with Zoom Park Singapore. Not only is it a great place for kids to have fun, it’s a perfect place for families to play and bond together. It’s also a good place for gathering of friends and colleagues – for corporate functions or personal events. If you are one of those who need exercise but prefer to weave in fun as well, this is a perfect option!
