Flipping out in Wellington


Somerset’s first trampoline park – Flip Out – opened this weekend at Chelston Business Park in Wellington and staff and school children were quick to have a go.

General manager of Flip Out Somerset, Jeremy Appiah, said: “As well as 106 inter-linked trampolines, two
Olympic-sized trampolines and one of the largest free-running ‘stuntbox’ zones in the UK, we also have a ninja warrior course, slam dunk basketball, dodgeball courts and even Gladiator-style battle beams.”

Flip Out Somerset has five party rooms, an under-5s trampoline area, and an onsite café serving a range of
hot and cold refreshments with views across the trampoline arena.

Rising star of British trampolining, Corey Walkes, who opened the venue on Saturday, said: “It’s great that the county now has its own arena for young people and families to have fun, exercise and get into trampolining.”
