Hoping to have Norwich jumping for joy by May half term, the former Wonderland night club in Riverside is being transformed into Gravity's flagship centre.

Harvey Jenkinson, director of Gravity, said: 'The demolition has started as we have to strip the nightclub back to its shell.'

The company hopes the £1.5m investment will make the city's trampoline park the biggest to date. The site is a 33,000 sq ft building.

It will include dodgeball leagues, fitness classes and parent and toddler sessions and a total of 90 jobs will be created by the new addition.

The Yorkshire branch of the wall-to-wall trampoline attraction, in Castleford, had 135,000 people jumping for joy in its first year and Gravity have just opened another park in Maidstone, in Kent.

Mr Jenkinson, added: '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.'

It has teamed up with popular restaurants to create a day-out experience for its visitors.

Work is also underway to arrange for some celebrities to open the new flagship park after Norwich City Council approved the plans in October.
