A Sky-High Birthday at Jumpstreet Penang

It is perhaps a remarkable coincidence that I wanted to do exactly the same thing for both my 23rd and 24th birthdays. Maybe it shows that I didn't grow up very much over the course of one year, after all. Last year, for my 23rd birthday, I went to an indoor trampoline park with Angel. This year, on the opposite side of the world, I went to Jumpstreet Penang with Angel, Lizzy, and Anna.


The original idea had been to take the whole family out for my birthday...but that is actually a ridiculously difficult feat to accomplish--trying to get all of these kids available at the exact same time--so we settled on a crew of 4 for the adventure, and headed out.

Jumpstreet Penang is located in Bayan Lepas, somewhat distant from Penang's downtown area, but we found it without a problem and got our wristbands. It's important to note that Jumpstreet assigns jump passes by the hour, so if you want to maximize your jump time, make sure that you arrive slightly before the hour changes so that you can jump for a full hour! We went after work, and got into the 7-8 pm slot.

The evening we went it was not very busy, only one other group of friends were jumping during our time slot, which was really nice, because we practically had the run of the place!

Apparently the epic Family Olympics didn't leave us in as great of shape as we might have hoped, because all of the trampoline activity left us red-faced and out of breath! When planning the outing, I thought that an hour of jump time didn't sound that long, but as we left after jumping, we all agreed that it had been the perfect length of time--our legs were getting a little shaky, and we were pretty sure we'd burned enough calories for the day by that point.

We got some great use out of the Foam Pit, and yes, Angel had to show off his flips in front of all the ladies. I didn't even try to flip. I turned 24, not 14. Gotta grow up sometime, right?

We also enjoyed the Slam Dunk court, too. I'd like to mention here that I really appreciated the staff at Jumpstreet. We felt safe the whole time we were there, but we also didn't feel smothered, or like anyone was breathing down our necks. The atmosphere was fun and relaxed, and we never felt bad about looking clumsy or silly while doing all of our crazy jumping.

Generally, jumping as high and as far as we could was pretty awesome. I felt like I was Spiderman when I was jumping on the High Performance trampolines, can you tell?

But I wasn't brave enough to tackle the Tower Jump--a backwards fall. I know it's not that high of a height, but I still couldn't do the backwards thing. Could you?

We spent an awesome and exhausting hour there, but we still didn't take advantage of everything Jumpstreet Penang has to offer. There's a surprisingly cute cafe right inside:

And even rooms to rent if your birthday party is significantly larger than the 4 people in our group:

Goodbye Jumpstreet Penang! We had a grand time and I'm sure I'll find some other excuse to go back...just because bouncing all over a gigantic room of trampolines is just about the most awesome kind of feeling...

Have you ever visited a trampoline park? Are you still limber enough to try out some front-flips and back-flips, or have you given those up for good?

  1. This looks so fun! I visited a trampoline park with a couple of friends before we graduated college and it was the best time. I'm really afraid of heights and I actually had someone break their leg when I was on a trampoline in the backyard once so I was quite scared but ended up having a blast. No way I'm brave enough for a front-flip!
