Devon’s first ever indoor trampoline park is set to open in Barnstaple this summer.

Local business owners Bruce and Amelia Isaac plan to open the action-packed Air Extreme at Roundswell in the former Atlas Packaging building.

The park will accommodate up to 55 bouncers an hour and includes a free style area, competition-standard trampolines, slam dunk basketball, jump wall and dodge ball courts, as well as a café and viewing platform.

The couple, who run the Design Shop and Barnstaple Work Hub at Pottington, have invested half a million pounds and pooled their design skills to create the attraction for all ages.

Amelia told the Gazette that they expect to receive 150,000 visitors per year. The pair believe the venture will create around 100 full- and part-time jobs for local people.

“The nearest one to us currently is in Bristol,” said Amelia.

“Trampoline parks are the biggest phenomenon since soft play in the leisure industry.

“It’s going to be an all-weather attraction and will also meet the needs of teenagers, because currently apart from bowling there isn’t that kind of thing here.

“Plus, it has a really cool café called The Mezz. It will be very urban, very cool.”

The trampolines are being custom built by local firm Jet Sports Ltd, taking three weeks to install and made from materials sourced completely within Devon.

The firm’s director, Mark Schofield, said that the park will bring something new to the area: “It’s very different to anything else on offer, especially in this area.”
