Exhausting our little duracell bunnies at Better Extreme Trampoline Park!


How do you exhaust children who are like Duracell bunnies (but sometimes not as cute)? Take them trampolining! We were invited to try out the brand new trampoline park Better Extreme at Gosling Sports Centre. A perfect venue for locals with no motorways or city traffic to battle and a free car park. A good start.

We were welcomed by the first member of the team who set the tone of the whole crew – a warm smile and a genuine feeling that they wanted us to have a great time. After donning our blue and orange bounce socks we watched a short safety video that was a stick man breaking various limbs by jumping incorrectly – my 2 year old found this particularly amusing which is worrying but they all got the idea! Then the doors opened into a brilliantly bright orange gymnasium, spotlessly clean, full of equipment to wear out you and your offspring and all their friends…

Trampolines long and short, jumping wall, trapeze, diving boards, dodgeball, high & low basketball (over trampolines – it’s harder than it looks!), tightrope and gladiator beam which was the favourite section with my clan; I think because they could get away with bashing each other with a soft weapon in the name of entertainment!

The children loved it:

"I thought the trampoline park was extremely fun and exciting. We got to do loads of cool things. We even got to swing on a trapeze!"

"Better Extreme was really good fun. I would rate it 5 stars!"

Take a look for yourselves...


Thanks to the whole team at Better Extreme. We’re really looking forward to returning when you officially open.
