Ouch that hurt!
I constantly get invited to all different kinds of kids parties and activities, being a dad to a 7 year old girl, butThis time around I was invited to attend something that I could actually also enjoy with my family – The Infinity Trampoline Park in Cardiff.
As we got there, the party was already underway so it probably wasn’t the smooth entrance I’d expected, but it would have to do. I had visions of us flying up and the down the trampolines, doing backflips and all sorts of madness which got both me and my daughter really excited… so I did I go from having all that excitement to sitting on sidelines so quickly?
Well… everyone seemed to be have been enjoying themselves and seemed so good at it, that the kid in me just went into overdrive thinking I was some kind of trampoline super-hero, without ever even trying one before!
After stepping on the trampoline for the first time though, I quickly realised that I probably required a lot more expertise to do all the things which my naive mind had already planned, right? Of course.
So I carefully tried some trampolines out and everything was going great, until the moment that curious inner kid in me decided to do more than it could!
To the bemusement of my family I went on a trampoline with basketball hoop thinking I was Michael Jordan, jumped on it as hard as I could to try and slam-dunk the ball into the hoop, but ended up flying against the wall instead – foot first and twisting my ankle in the process…
While my family seemed to have found it incredibly funny – I knew there and then that it was it for me… I was done… Finito. But all antics aside – it was a really good day for us all which provided an incredibly fun experience to say the least and we have already returned a few times since.
Definitely a place we recommend if you’re looking for uncompromising fun with your family or friends. It has something for everyone and it will roll back the years if you let go of all your inhibitions and just go for it!
