Your safety: Our #1 priority

Like any other sport, trampoline jumping carries a level of risk – it is your decision as to whether the benefits of jumping outweigh the risks. We have a comprehensive safety system to minimise the risks of an accident, developed around international industry best-practice. Safety is our number 1 priority, to ensure everyone has a fun time.

The following features have been put in place to ensure your safety:

  • Prior to jumping, everyone must agree to the Conditions of Entry – this confirms you accept the safety rules and accept the risk involved with jumping in our trampoline park.
  • Our rules and safety guidelines have been developed in conjunction with recognised safety experts in line with world’s best practice.
  • To minimise the chance of dangerous situations, especially for inexperienced jumpers, we have clearly posted station rules at the entrance to each station. You will view these again when you are provided your pre-jump safety briefing. These rules are enforced by our floor staff.
  • Each of the zones at Gravity Etc will have their own specific safety rules clearly displayed. If you are not following the rules, you will receive a warning and if you continue to break the rules you will be asked to leave the trampoline deck.

Some of the things we do to keep you safe:

  • Each of the trampoline zones is monitored by trained trampoline staff. Our team of supervisors have been trained in CPR and First Aid and are there to ensure the court rules, are followed in a courteous manner. Our staff enforce our ‘one person per trampoline’ rule to avoid collisions. Children under 110cm tall (which is generally those aged 5 years and under) have access areas to all areas except the “Big Air” Air Bags and The Edge – Performance Trampolines. 

  • Everything that happens within in the trampoline deck area is captured on our Closed Circuit TV system.  We also use this system to keep an eye on what is happening across the entire centre, in addition to the supervisors on the trampoline deck.

  • The entire Gravity Extreme Trampoline centre has been engineered and designed for safety.  Using the very latest in trampoline technology from our supplier in the United States, we have invested heavily in the best equipment available, to make sure that your experience is both awesome fun and as safe as possible.

    Some of the safety features include

    • Every trampoline in the arena has no gaps to fall through, nor are there any exposed springs. All steel and springs are covered by high performance padding.
    • Every trampoline is protected with a redundant safety net, which protects the jumper in the unlikely event of a catastrophic trampoline mat failure.
    • Each of our activity zones is surrounded by soft but strong, netting and/or trampoline walls. These walls are SO strong jumpers can bounce off them and back onto the trampoline floor.  This design helps avoid the age old problem of “falling off the trampoline” many of us have experienced on home trampolines.
    • Our staff performs regular inspections of all trampoline parts within the centre to make sure that everything is always in proper working order.

What you need to do to stay safe:

    • REMOVE any large or loose jewellery to protect yourself, other jumpers & the trampoline equipment.
    • EMPTY your pockets – you don’t want to lose anything!
    • NO food, drink or chewing gum whilst jumping.
    • NEVER jump if you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol!
    • NEVER jump if you are pregnant, have health limitations or pre-existing injuries – see your Doctor if you are unsure.
    • Gravity Etc grip socks must be worn on trampolines at ALL times. No grip socks – no jumping.
  • There are inherent risks in the participation on any trampoline court.
