The owner of Jump Warehouse, in Great Yarmouth, has now taken over Monsters soft play area in Diss.

John Wilson, managing director of the trampoline park, said they hope to “reinvigorate” the Diss business, which closed its doors back in August.

Mr Wilson said: “Monsters was a very well-respected business in Diss. So, we looked at what we could bring to the play area that could reinvigorate it.

“We are keeping the soft play area but we will also be introducing a trampoline court, and its name will be changed to Jump Warehouse.

“Parents have been keen to get their children out again and get them active, especially after lockdown.

“But we want to focus on the whole customer experience, it’s not just about the children, it’s about making sure the parents enjoy coming here.”
