With three other venues already opened in the UK – Portsmouth, Bristol and Stoke, Flip Out London is the latest flagship arena to open on the 12th May 2016. It is a huge indoor space of multi-levelled interconnected trampolines, where you can spring, trick or flip off the walls from 9am to 9pm on some of the largest trampolines in the UK. For those daredevils wanting to improve their free running skills, Flip Out London boasts several brand new pieces of apparatus that haven’t been seen in Europe before. Pin Ball is a giant pinball-inspired vertical challenge and in a hybrid of free running and trampolining, Flip Street is a multi-level area inspired by skate parks with platforms, boxes, jumps and diagonals that will challenge and excite even the most seasoned professionals.

Free runner and Flip Out ambassador Chima Akenzua commented, “it’s a completely unique space that aids creativity. The different terrain helps unlock your imagination.”Professional free runner Brad Wendes added, “it’s not like any other trampoline park I’ve seen. With areas like Pin Ball and Flip Street plus the wall running set up, you can train differently, learn new skills and overcome new obstacles.”

Flip Out Wandsworth also features wall running, an enormous half pipe, slam-dunk basketball area and the UK’s biggest foam pit stuffed with 38,000 foam blocks so you can jump, somersault and launch yourself off one of the three diving boards and tightrope with abandon. There’s also a dedicated junior area for little ‘Flippers’ to get their Tigger on.

The atmosphere inside is also unique. The walls are adorned with 160 metres of continual graffiti, designed by renowned London graffiti artist Tizer and his crew. A London taxi sits in the epicentre serving as a DJ booth (complete with full decks), and the whole arena has been given a state-of-the-art sound and lighting system so you really are transported to another world once you enter the inner sanctum.
