One of the most attractive features at BOUNCE Singapore, The Wall uses all that energy from jumping on trampolines to run up a wall! While it might take a few tries for you to successfully climb the wall, you’re going to have a lot of fun just trying it out!
2. Slam Dunk
If you’re a basketball fan, Slam Dunk is going to be the first feature you should head to when you arrive at BOUNCE. Involving a basketball ring high above some runway trampolines, you can now finally slam dunk just like the pros! Drag some friends and get a little creative!
Seen those twist, turns and flips that adrenaline junkies seem to pull of flawlessly? The Big Bag sits at the end of 2 trampolines, so you get the chance to pull off those advance moves you’ve been dying to try out! Best part? Even if you completely wipe out, the Big Bag is there to make sure you don’t break a bone!
4. Trampoline Dodgeball
Put trampolines and Ninja Warrior together and you get X-Park! Combining elements of climbing, jumping and free-running, X-Park was designed to allow something challenging to expert trampoliners! Developed in collaboration with parkour enthusiasts, the X-Park requires agility and coordination, the X-Park is no walk in the park (pardon the pun)!
6. Parties & Events

Can’t find a unique and exciting place to hold your birthday party? Don’t fret because BOUNCE has got you covered! With 3 different Birthday Party Packages for birthday parties inclusive of food, you know you’re gonna have a ball of a time at BOUNCE!
If you think BOUNCE is just about jumping around on trampolines you could not be more wrong! BOUNCE has its own fitness class, BOUNCE FIT! A supercharged 45 minute exercise class that uses trampolines, this cardio workout is going to get you fit while having fun at the same time (Yes please)!
We decided to send our ambassadors to test out BOUNCE Fit and see if it’s worth the hype and if it’s as fun as promised! No surprise, THEY HAD A BLAST! Having a go at The Wall and the Free Jumping Arena, our ambassadors (Clare Chang, Noreen Fong) came out of BOUNCE Fit with huge smiles! And let’s be honest, where else would you be able to have a cardio workout without the ordeal?!

Thought You Knew All About Singapore? Here Are 10 Uncommon Places That’ll Guarantee A New Experience
Even if you’re not going abroad, you can look to our very own humble abode for fun things to do and places to explore. Singapore isn’t just about Orchard Road or Gardens by the Bay. We’re almost as sick of these places as you are!

1. Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle & Dragon Kiln[caption id="attachment_11369" align="alignnone" width="600"] Image source: Helmindra[/caption]
Dubbed one of Singapore’s most well-kept secrets, the Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle is a place that combines heritage, history, discovery, and fun. It gives vibes of an old museum and you can actually buy proper pottery and art at a reasonable price!
There’s also the Dragon Kiln (a furnace/oven for burning pottery), one of the oldest surviving brick-built kilns in Singapore for wood firing. If you’d like to learn more about pottery, Thow Kwang also hosts a series of workshops that will give you your Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze “Ghost” pottery moment.[caption id="attachment_11370" align="alignnone" width="594"] Image source: wjleow[/caption] [caption id="attachment_11371" align="alignnone" width="597"] Image source: lioncityboyzach[/caption]

Are you an enthusiastic adrenaline junkie, constantly looking for something fun to do? You might just be the perfect candidate Bounce Singapore is looking for! Here’s an opportunity to work at the world’s best indoor adventure park.
Casting Call[caption id="attachment_6159" align="alignnone" width="2040"] Interconnected Trampolines[/caption]
The very first indoor adventure park in Singapore is having a casting (also known as hiring or recruitment) call on 28th and 29th April 2016. They’re looking to recruit energetic and outgoing team members to join the Bounce Tribe!
Set to take place at *SCAPE Orchard from 10am – 6pm, positions for team leaders, hosts and referees are available. For more information about the positions, click here.
Originating from Melbourne in 2012, Bounce Inc is an international sensation that has redefined gravity across the globe. Their park locations include South Africa, Hong Kong, Thailand, Europe, Abu Dhabi, and more.
This epic urban playground consists of interconnected trampolines, Freerun Terrain Park (like the one on Ninja Warrior Mount Midoriyama), and “Leap of Faith” – jump on a raised platform and leap out to catch hold of the trapeze. There are all in all, 3 areas in the park. The areas are based on interests and levels of difficulty. There’s something for everyone – adults, fitness enthusiasts, youths, and kids.
Not to worry, the park is safe as all hard surfaces are replaced with circus-grade padding, giant air bags, and springs.
Bounce Singapore will be opening their doors this June. In anticipation of the grand opening, they are hosting a recruitment unlike any other. Aside from being able to demonstrate your skills and charisma, auditionees will be given the exclusive opportunity to enter and have fun at the adventure park before its official opening.
If you fit the bill, do head down to *SCAPE for the audition!
Date: 28 and 29 April 2016 (Thursday & Friday)
Time: 10am – 6pm
Location: *SCAPE, 2 Orchard Link #04-01, 237978
Bounce opens this June holidays at the heart of Orchard Road.
