Urban playground operator Jump Inc is coming to Beverley’s Flemingate centre.
Jump Inc’s owner, Futures Leisure Limited, is to open its sixth inflatable play park at Flemingate, with exciting plans to invest £300,000 to rapidly expand the attraction.
Futures Leisure Limited operates Jump Inc-branded indoor urban playgrounds in Sheffield, Rotherham, Leeds and Lincoln, as well as a Rebound Revolution centre in Bicester, Oxfordshire.
The sites provide a playground for adults, teenagers and children offering “spring-loaded” fun and exercise with trampolines, ninja obstacle courses, giant airbags, tumble tracks, parkour ramps, slam dunk lanes and interactive walls.
Jump Inc is now taking over a 14,000 sq ft unit, currently occupied by Inflata Nation, from September 5. The Jump Inc team and contractors will then re-brand the venue and carry out various upgrades, including changes to the interior design, customer service and café menu, as well as the addition of exciting new sessions and special offers.
Jump Inc will also establish a new bookings page for the venue before it relaunches under the new ownership on September 13 and will then be open seven days a week, with all existing staff being retained.
Later this autumn Jump Inc plans to expand into an adjoining unit at Flemingate and introduce exciting new activities, including a ninja zone, trampoline zone, multi-level soft play and zip lines.
Once this expansion is complete, the combined unit will provide 18,000 sq ft of wall-to-wall thrill-seeking activities and become the first venue of its kind in East Yorkshire.
Emma Towse-Bertram, Head of Marketing at Jump Inc, said: “We’re really looking forward to putting our own stamp on things. Every Jump Inc park is totally unique, offering a range of entertainment under one roof, from airbags, to wipe out, walk the wall, performance trampoline beds, inflatable slides, ninja, and, now, soft play.
“We’re super-excited to expand into East Yorkshire and we have some really fantastic plans ahead.
“One of our priorities is to improve engagement with the other businesses at Flemingate and work with the local community to build stronger partnerships and excitement around the brand.”
Lee Shipley, Managing Director of Jump Inc, added: “Beverley is a lovely market town and Flemingate is the ideal location for us to expand into East Yorkshire.
“We believe Beverley has great potential because of the size of the local market. We’re excited to introduce Jump Inc to local customers and implement our expansion plans.”
The arrival of Jump Inc will be the latest in a series of openings and investments at the thriving retail and leisure destination.
It follows the opening earlier this month at Flemingate of a new concept sportswear and fashion store bringing Sports Direct and streetwear brand USC together under one roof.
A One Stop convenience store and Vintage & Co hair salon have also opened in recent months as Flemingate has bounced back strongly from the pandemic.
David Donkin, Property Director of Hull-based Wykeland Group, developer and owner of Flemingate, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Jump Inc to Flemingate and bring another growing brand to the centre.
“This is a very exciting new investment, including a significant expansion that will offer new, healthy and fun activities for adults and children to enjoy.
“We’ve worked with Jump Inc and Inflata Nation to ensure a smooth transition and we’re pleased that all the existing staff will transfer to the new operator.”
