Get ready to defy gravity folks! Latitude, the operator of two successful trampoline parks in Australia, has recently opened a Shunyi branch that promises to be tons of bouncy fun.
Located on Anping Street, the Shunyi activity center not only boasts an array of trampolines but also climbing walls, obstacle courses, a dodgeball court and more.
International Newcomer’s Network President and expat parent, Theresa Ahdieh recently took her ten-year-old son Ty and a few of his friends to brand spanking new space. “The kids had an amazing time!” she said, adding that the kids were particularly fond of the dodgeball court and the climbing maze.
And while the pulse pounding activities on hand are sure to entice children, Shunyi parents will be equally excited to have a fun new indoor activity center that is perfect for smoggy days and muggy summers.
However, Ahdieh said the venue does have a few kinks that they should iron out, such as the staff’s subpar English proficiency and a lack of snacks on site. Expat parents would also likely prefer that the venue’s website had an English page (for now, its “English” option redirects to Latitude’s Australian page).
But Ahdieh was quick to add that: “Overall Latitude is in good working order… and feels quite safe,” before going on to praise the fun activity options, and overall atmosphere including upbeat music played at the perfect level, and a soon-to-be-opened cafe where parents can wait while their kids play. Ahdieh also liked that the staff members were numerous and diligent.
Latitude’s flagship trampoline park opened in the suburbs of Melbourne in January of 2015. At the time, Mayor Craig Langdon said “An indoor venue such as this is ideal, ensuring that people can remain active and healthy no matter what the weather.” The venue was so successful that a second branch opened in Adelaide within a year.
Here is a rundown of the trampoline park’s prices:
Mon-Fri: RMB 108 per hour (RMB 98 for members)
Sat- Sun: RMB 138 per hour (RMB 128 for members)
Group price: Two people or more can enjoy an RMB 15 deduction each
Parent-kids price: From Mon-Fri one adult at full price can take one child that is up to 1.1 meters tall for free
*NOTE: Latitude says these prices are in effect up to June 30, 2016, and could change after that
