Indoor leisure venue Air Vault Trampoline Park has opened its doors in Bolton, supported by a £50k loan from Business Finance Solutions. Air Vault, which is owned by Active Entertainment Ltd, has invested a total of £400k to transform an empty warehouse on Wingates Industrial Estate in Westhoughton, Bolton into a state-of-the-art trampoline park utilising a 700sqm jump zone.
The new centre offers a range of fun trampoline-based activities for adults and children and features inter-connected trampolines, angled wall trampolines, tumbling trampoline lanes, curved and double-curved trampolines, dismount platforms, foam pits, slam-dunk basketball hoops, a dodgeball court and a separate area for parents and toddlers.
It also has a café, two party rooms and a conference suite to cater for school visits and corporate events.
The venture is owned by Bolton businessmen Andrew Caldwell and Mark Denison and represents a complete departure from their previous careers in accountancy and IT.
Andrew said: “It has been fantastic to work with the team at Business Finance Solutions to access the additional funding we needed to provide a modern leisure and fitness facility that the whole of Bolton can be proud of.
“Trampoline parks are a new phenomenon – there are currently only a handful of facilities like this in the UK and Air Vault features a variety of trampolines covering an activity area of 700 sqm. These are the most modern, safest and hi-tech trampolines available so we are taking trampoline parks to the next level in terms of variety, quality, fun and safety.”
