Crossfit is so last year. Now Bangkokians are going crazy for jumping around in trampoline parks. Here’s where.
This San Franciscan indoor trampoline park chain has giant trampoline beds interconnected to form bouncy floors and walls that are divided into four zones: the Rockin’ Arena (freestyle jumping), Rockin’ Splash (jumping from a trampoline into a foam pit), Rockin’ Dodge (for games of trampoline dodgeball) and Rockin’ Dunk (for games of trampoline basketball, equipped with hoops at each end). Prices range from B400 for 30 minutes to B1,000 for two hours, while you can also purchase packages that span three (B1,500), five (B2,250) and 10 hours (B4,000) of jumping.

Following the arrival of Rockin’ Jump in 2015 (see above), this year sees the even bigger arrival of Australia’s Bounce Thailand. This trampoline park claims to be Asia’s biggest at a size of 5,600 sq meters on the fifth floor of The Street Ratchada. Here, you’ll find the Bounce Fit zone for exercising, Mini Bounce for kids, and the Free Jumping zone for simply having some fun on huge trampolines and practicing some pro moves. Prices start from B390 per 1 hour (B290 for kids). Minimum age allowed is three years old and the maximum weight is 120kg.

This trampoline park has traveled all the way from Singapore to Phra Khanong, joining the gym community at Training Ground. Amped Bangkok is the brand’s fifth branch in Asia, offering a 10,000-sq-foot playground split between a public zone and three private rooms for group sessions or private events. Compared to the city’s other huge arenas, this mid-size offering goes for a friendlier atmosphere with trained staff who will teach you the basics free of charge. The prices are comparatively cheaper, too, starting from B240/hr on Monday up to B290/hr on weekend, while the party rooms start from B4,200-B4,700/hr with a maximum of 10 people. You can also connect all three rooms for parties of up to 30 people—advanced booking required.

There’s now even a trampoline park out in Bangna. Funny Jump trampoline and fitness gym offers pretty good prices, too, with freestyle jumping starting from B120/30min, B200/hr and up to B500 for a day pass. For something even fancier, try the trampoline fitness class (B1,990) that promises a 60-min full body workout, while the Easy Somersault class (B2,490/4 classes) helps you learn basic body balance skills for gymnastics and free running.
