While most of us are still trying to get our breaths back from the opening of the first trampoline park a couple of months ago, yet another trampoline park has opened in Dubai.

Completely unlinked to Bounce in Al Quoz, Jump Boxx in Uptown Mirdiff is a UAE home grown brand that adopts much the same theme as its rival.

The trampoline park is exactly what it sounds like – a trampoline playground. Covering 22,000 square feet in Mirdif, Jump Boxx is made up of over 100 interconnecting trampolines and visitors can play dodgeball and basketball or simply throw themselves into Dubai’s first soft-foam pit. They also offer fitness classes, kids classes and birthday parties and are keen on setting up a weekly club night called Jump Boxx Beats to cash in on the Dubai Thursday night party scene.

What’s On headed down to the opening day joining dozens of people looking to play airborne variations of dodgeball and basketball. Even a team of parkour pros were down there showing off their airborne skills.

For those familiar with trampoline parks, you’ll have an idea of what to expect at Jump Boxx though we got the feeling that this Mirdif counterpart caters better towards a younger crowd. There’s even a dedicated kiddie area for the really little ones. Health and safety also plays a much bigger role at Jump Boxx; as soon as you pick up your tramp socks (which cost Dhs9 a pair), you’re ushered into a room to watch a 90-second safety video.

You’ll also notice a lot more dos and don’ts posters at each trampoline station and while it’s always good to ensure the highest of safety standards, it’s hard not feel a little restricted. But that certainly isn’t stopping hundreds of people coming through the doors since it opened – a sure sign that indoor tramp parks are winning hearts in Dubai.
