Norwich is set to be well and truly jumping with proposals being unveiled for the city’s second trampoline park.

Gravity wants to invest £1.5m to create the park in the former Wonderland night club in Riverside.

It would include dodgeball leagues, fitness classes and parent and toddler sessions and a total of 90 jobs would be created.

It would be the company’s third park and Norwich City Council is expected to make a decision on the plans for the 33,000 sq ft building in late October.

The Yorkshire branch of the wall-to-wall trampoline attraction, in Castleford, had 135,000 people jumping for joy in its first year.

Harvey Jenkinson, director of Gravity, said: “This will be the latest, biggest and most prominent park to date.

“We want people to be able to come to us as part of a day out and we offer more to the family than just trampolines.”

The park would also offer disability sessions, sensory tents, ballpits, trampolines and games.

The company hopes to start work on December 1 to complete the project in time for the Easter holidays.

Celebrities are already being lined up to open Gravity’s flagship park if permission is granted.

  • Jager-shots for a quid? Showing your age there! They've not been that cheap in years.

  • A good idea, so long as the prices are prohibitive. For example, if they do special deals for schools and youth groups, that would result in a few group bookings. I would also make an alternative party venue from Funky's. The one in Wiffler Road charges £17 per child for a party, or £10 without the party food, which seems a little steep.

  • Better that than a nightclub again. Wouldn't use it myself but it would be a far greater asset than another place selling Jager-shots for a quid to those with an sub 100 IQ.
