Review and Giveaway: Birthday fun at Zoom Park Singapore

Thursday, July 23, 2015

For the past 7 weeks without a domestic helper, Ch and L had to help around more. Initially, Ch did show a little resistance as it meant more restrictions to her freedom at home. However, she quickly understood the importance of her contributions. It touches me immensely to see her rising to the occasion and assuming the big sister role to help even before I ask. She takes very good care of K when I'm busy cleaning or cooking. She even knows exactly what to do and where to position herself when she helps to carry the feeding pump while I carry K to go for K's weekly therapies at the hospital. She also guides L with his work and helps him get out of mischief. 

This independence and mature thinking she displays is perhaps, a reflection of being older and wiser too? For her recent birthday, Ch didn't want any fancy celebrations, but chose to have a date with her close friends from school. We decided on the indoor trampoline park at Zoom Park Singapore as it is close to us, and trampolining sounds like a super fun activity with lots of benefits

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the place, I realised Zoom Park Singapore is actually located at the premises of the old Pandan Swimming Complex. It is opposite the Cycle and Carriage Motor Dealer, and next to the Ayer Rajah Community Centre.

The excitement built up during our drive to Zoom Park, and the children got more excited once we stepped into the venue. The upbeat and loud music made them eager to start their session. After we paid for the tickets and collected our wristbands, we wore the Zoom Park grip socks, watched the safety video and were ready to go!

To date, Zoom Park Singapore is the largest indoor trampoline park in Singapore. The layout of the trampoline park is impressive as it is nicely divided into 6 areas with a different focus of play for each area. You will find 2 dodgeball courts (one for conventional play, and one for extreme dodgeball), a 4-lane foam pit, a 5-lane airbag for jumpers to land safely while attempting the challenging high performance mats, 3 basketball slam dunk lanes, 3 long tumble tracks and a spacious main court and a 17-metre lateral rock wall. 

We had a 3-on-3 modified dodgeball match, and ended up without a winner as our own rules made the game a never ending one. But it was absolutely fun and we had a re-match. Ch and L picked the dodgeball court as one of their top favourite attractions in Zoom Park

The high performance mats really provide a lot of bounce! One of Ch's friends commented that she almost peed out from the impact of the high bouncing power! Do take note that this is only for jumpers with a height of 1.2-metres tall and above. The more courageous ones can challenge yourselves to some acrobatic jumps here.

Look at EQ on the high performance mat! An excellent split in the air!

How about a Slam Dunk? It was really fun jumping high to reach the basketball hoop to perform a slam dunk like an NBA player. This is one of L's top favourite attractions at Zoom Park

If you prefer to just jump around or practise some jumping skills, the Main Court provides ample space for that. Just remember to have one jumper per trampoline square at all times to be safe.

One thing I like about Zoom Park is that instructions are clearly written to explain the play at each area. There are Zoom Park staff around to ensure safety of the jumpers, so I feel safe to leave the children to play on their own while I rest outside the play area. For children below 4 years old, an adult has to accompany the children at all times.

With such a fun place for the young and old, Zoom Park is definitely a choice location to hold a birthday party. They have 3 birthday party rooms (fully decorated) and birthday party packages are available with an event host and food, on top of a 1h jump. Read here for more info and pricing. Alternatively, you can host your own small celebration like what we did. 

Our birthday girl and her friends had a enjoyable 1-hour workout and bonding time, and she is looking forward to visit Zoom Park again.

Here are some tips to make your trampolining time more enjoyable:

[1]
Wear cool, comfortable clothing as it can get rather warm. Just 10 minutes of jumping on trampolines gives you a great workout, so be prepared for lots of perspiration. The good thing is that there are big cooler fans around, and you can just stand in front of the vents to cool down. 

[2]
Don't wear jeans or any clothing that has buckles or sharp edges as these may tear the trampolines. 

[3]
All jumpers will need to wear the Zoom Park grip socks to prevent yourself from slipping on the trampolines. 
They can be purchased at the registration counter for $2.

[4]
Arrive at least 15 mins before your Zoom Park session to buy your tickets, collect the wristbands, store your belongings and watch a safety video. 

[5]
Every jumper needs to fill a signed liability waiver form. Do fill out the waiver before you reach Zoom Park else you may be stuck at the computer terminal if there is a crowd.

[6]
Bring a big bottle of water. You WILL NEED IT! 
Or, you can purchase drinks and slushee at the cafe. Pricing is reasonable. 
A latte costs $4.50 and soft drinks are at $1.50 per can.
Do note that currently the cafe doesn't sell any food items. 
There is a $30 surcharge if you bring in food from outside.

[7]
There is no toilet in Zoom Park. 
The nearest toilet is located a short distance away.

[8]
Ensure safety for yourself and other jumpers around you. 
Do not attempt backflips and stunts if you are not trained. 

[9]
Jump as high as you can, and have fun!
