Work has begun on the Wonderland night club site, in Riverside. The interior has been stripped bare in the first step of a £1.5m project to create a massive trampoline park.

Gravity, has parks all over the country, however Norwich's will be the largest to date, measuring 33,000 sq ft.

The Yorkshire branch of the wall-to-wall trampoline attraction, in Castleford, had 135,000 people jumping for joy in its first year and Harvey Jenkinson, director of Gravity, is hoping to replicate the success in the city.

He said: '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 site will include ball pits, disability sessions, sensory tents, games and food. Hosting dodgeball leagues, fitness classes and parent and toddler sessions - the bouncy playground will also complete 90 jobs once it is completed.

Mr Jenkinson added that the trampoline park will be open in time for the Easter holidays.
