A new £1m trampoline park for St Helens has officially opened its doors – creating 65 jobs for the town.
Air Factory is a leisure attraction set in a 21,000 sq ft arena filled with trampolines. Mayor of St Helens, Cllr David Banks officially opened the new arena.
The former warehouse site in Lea Green can accommodate more than 100 jumpers at one time and is suitable for trampolinists of all ages.
Along with the 100 inter-linked trampolines in the main arena, Air Factory also offers jumpers the chance to play dodgeball, make a slam dunk in the basketball area, take on the ninja warrior course and bounce like the pros on Olympic-sized trampolines.
Bin Chen, director of Air Factory UK, said: “Welcome to Air Factory, the area’s first trampoline park, I’m so pleased the attraction is now open and ready for people to experience it.
“Of course, there’s more than just trampolining on offer thanks to a spacious balcony café serving hot and cold food and drinks as well as an events space suitable for parties and other functions.
“And remember, we’re offering people who book in advance the chance to bounce for free until October 23, but hurry because space is running out fast.”
