Bounce Inc. Bangkok is an action-packed trampoline park and climbing centre located on the top floor of The Street shopping mall on Ratchada. The huge space is a delight of children and teens and is open to everyone aged three and older (young children require adult supervision). With 5,600 sq. m of space to play in, there are trampolines of all kinds: some have padded walls so you can practice your Park Coeur flips and jumps, others are slanted at a 45 degree angle, others land into a crash mat so you can attempt crazy tricks without even the slightest worry of getting hurt, and there is also a section with basketball nets so you can slam dunk for some impressive photos. Bounce Bangkok runs on an hourly basis, so make sure you are ready to enter the action right on the hour. The brightly coloured activity hall is amazing fun, but one of the things surprised us – trampolining is an incredible workout! The lungs and legs will be tested, but it’s so much fun you probably won’t realise until the hour is over (or when you attempt to walk up a flight of stairs the next day). Each section is looked after by staff who can advise you on how to improve your skills, but even first-timers will find themselves bouncing high into the air straight away.
Bounce Inc. is originally an Australian company and this Bangkok branch is their second foray into Asia. They have ensured that all of the safety constraints found in their home branches are present here too. Despite trampolines capable of bouncing players several metres into the air, it is very difficult to harm yourself inadvertently because of the thick padding surrounding every surface. Parents who would rather watch than take part can sit in a central viewing area overlooking all the fun, which offers a great vantage point to take photos and keep an eye on everything. On a number of nights throughout the year, Bounce Bangkok dim the lights and pump the music for a club-like experience, including DJs mixing EDM and house music. The second section of Bounce Bangkok is called Clip ‘N’ Climb, another franchise but this time from New Zealand. Is a bright and funky climbing area with a range of colourful walls and climbing frames to test your skills. Experienced climbers might find it a little easy, but anyone looking for an introduction to climbing will have loads of fun on any of the 24 different climbing challenges. Full safety harnesses are provided. There is also a super slide to play on, but with a vertical drop its not for the faint-hearted. One hour in the trampoline park or the climbing park costs 490 baht per hour for adults and 390 baht for children under the age of 12 (children must be at least 3 years old to play). Entrance to each section must be purchased separately so if you want to experience Bounce Inc and Clip ‘N’ Climb Bangkok you will need to buy two separate tickets. Bounce customers will also need to buy special grip socks at 85 baht, but it’s a one-time purchase as customers can use the same socks next time they come to play.
