This massive 5,550 sqm indoor space, the second property owned
by Jump 360 after their existing Minhang branch, is full of dozens of
trampolines, foam pits and obstacle courses. ‘This sounds like something for kids’ might be the gut reaction to
something like this, but you’d be wrong to assume so. There is a child-friendly
area, but much of the space is geared towards adults, with two obstacle courses
(the Ninja Course and the Warrior Course) as well as a Parkour Zone if you’re
into free-running. And if you go all in, it’s physically challenging (don’t be
surprised if you’re aching for a couple of days afterwards). Other highlights include the basketball area, where you can bounce and slam dunk to your heart's content, and bubble football.
The scale of the place as
well as the variety of activities inside is impressive. Be warned that flying around on
trampolines does come with a risk of injury (hence the mandatory safety video,
plus lengthy waiver we have to sign before entering).
How to get there:
take metro line 3 to Songfa Lu, which takes about half an hour from downtown
Shanghai. Jump 360 is a 10 minute walk from the metro – head north on Yixian lu
and turn left down at the 'Elite Valley' sign just before the old railway line (you’ll walk
past a pretty cool steam engine too, and you can even jump inside if you fancy).
Walk for around 5 minutes and you’ll see jump 360’s building on your left.
