As plans for a new trampoline park move closer in Morecambe, a similar centre has opened just down the road in Preston.

Flip Out features more than 70 trampolines, a large free-running section, stepping stones, a balance beam, three foam pits and an airbag to jump and do tricks onto.

All the walls of the 21,000 sq ft store, which is part of the biggest trampoline operator in Europe, are covered with graffiti, including local landmarks like the library and the bus station.

The facility on Mercer Street has an under sevens area, fitness classes for the over 15s and Mini Flippers where a parent and toddler can jump together.

There will also be student nights and after dark sessions.

Flip Out also includes a 160 seater café bar with kids’ menu and free wifi as well as three party rooms which can be used by people of all ages.

The opening comes as plans for a new trampoline centre in Morecambe got the green light from planners ahead of a final decision to be made later this month.

The trampoline park in Morecambe will be designed and manufactured by Luna Trampolines.

Luna Trampolines say they specialise in “creating urban playgrounds”.

Some of their designs are similar to those used at Flip Out in Preston.
