Disability Friendly sessions at Jump Rush Thursdays 4.00-5.00 £6.00 per jumper (carer jumps for free) music
turned down, fewer people booked in. During these sessions we bring down our level of sensory and auditory
stimulation with appropriate sound and lighting, and also have a “quiet room” where people can go if they need the
space to re-balance and process. We also have a wheelchair lift up to the trampoline area though it is not permitted to
take wheelchairs onto the trampolines sorry.
We welcome both children (from aged 2) to adults to this session. To view the latest timetable for disabled friendly
activities at our trampoline park, view our timetable page. A parent or carer is admitted free of charge but they must be
booked in at the same time as booking for the jumper. Carers must not leave the individual to bounce unattended. You
MUST arrive 20 minutes before your jump time to allow time to get through check in and safety briefing.
