BOUNCE is a world where the wall becomes the floor, a slam-dunk is within your grasp and the rules of gravity no longer apply. It’s packed with lots of things to do with kids and the family, it takes the rush of getting airborne and adds a bunch of new dimensions – from aerial manoeuvres to slam dunking, wall running and dodgeball warfare. The best part is it doesn’t matter if you’re under 5 or an action sports junkie in training – you’re never too old or too young to have an awesome time.
With more than 100 interconnected trampolines housed within huge, colourful spaces at a growing number of locations around the world, BOUNCE is a spring-loaded urban playground with a wide range of things to do with kids; where hard surfaces are replaced with circus-grade sponge, giant air bags and springs.
The world of Bounce is not only there for the young at heart either. This venue is the perfect location for your corporate function or team building event where you can leave your shoes behind and join your colleagues for a few hours of fun.
All of our packages include…
There are so many different activities in various parts of the venue, so the party can be split into teams and either compete against each other or just have fun along the way. The awesome activity areas include slam dunk, dodgeball, big bag, slack-line, obstacle, high performance and free jump.
There is also an extra option on offer where the guests can be part of a drumming circle to wind down after their time jumping - Step into the shoes of a Rock Star for an hour – a professional musician playing drums to your favourite songs. No need for any musical skills or talent – the entire experience is super easy and fun and no one is singled out!
Hurry the Bounce Inc team are waiting to take your booking, whether it be for an end of year function, a team build or just some time with your work colleagues or employees away from the daily grind. Contact the team NOW
It has been said that one should never grow up and that we should try and stay in touch with our inner child. The perfect way of doing this is to take yourself back in time and do some colouring in as suggested by the French a few years ago.
Recently, it was discovered that colouring in intricate patterns and designs is in fact good for psyche and since France started doing it back in 2013, the whole world is following suit and publishers everywhere are offering books full of fun for people in adulthood.
In April this year, the two best selling books on Amazon were of the colouring in variety, so it seems the trend is here to stay for a while.
There are many options available on the market, but we just love these ones from South African publisher Tracey McDonald. Creative Therapy for the Soul gives you hours of colouring to de-stress your mind, body and soul whilst finding your inner child.
The beauty is there is nobody to judge you, so you can choose the colours you wish and take your time...whether on the plane, during a lunch hour or sitting by the pool, this is one activity that you will be hooked on from the start
The book is also available with an Afrikaans title too, although, it doesn't really matter what language you speak to pick up either of these books, as art and creativity are a universal language on their own.
