Spring Singapore

Spring Singapore

Bounce your way to fitness at Amped Trampoline Park, touted as the first of its kind in Singapore and South-east Asia.

Opened three weeks ago, the indoor park features almost 50 trampolines, which blanket the floors and line the walls in a converted Tanjong Katong school gym.

The trampolines are connected by bright blue padding, which shield the trampolines' frames and springs. Visitors can bounce off the walls and jump their way over 460 sq m of the park, which is located on the second floor, above a Peranakan Village Food Centre and Beer Garden.

Trampolines have been sold in Singapore for decades, but this is the first time members of the public, aged two and above, can pay to jump en masse on so many trampolines.

The park is the passion project and creative outlet for Canadian Shad Johns, 41, and Singaporean Jason Ong, 37, both managers at a technology company here. And it is already shaping up to be a viable business, with sessions rapidly filling up solely through word of mouth.

Last Saturday, nine of the park's 12 hour-long slots were fully booked, primarily by families and teens. Nine of its 10 slots for the next day, Sunday, were fully booked too.

"We're flat out," says Mr Johns, on how busy the park has been. "We have gotten such a great response."

Talks are under way to open more outlets on Singapore mainland and Sentosa in the next couple of years, he adds.

"We saw a hole in the market and we went for it. You have skate parks, you have wakeboarding, but what do you do when it rains or if it gets too hot?" says Mr Johns, who began trampolining as a child in his backyard in Canada.
