I Want to Play: Underground Trampolines Suspended in a Mine

bounce-3I spend a lot of my day wishing I was on an adventure somewhere. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, basically just not whatever I’m doing at the time that I’m daydreaming about the adventure. Here’s a good one that I’d be willing to try.

If you’re afraid of heights, caves, the dark, suffer from claustrophobia or vertigo, this might not be for you, but if not, a small Welsh town has the perfect subterranean adventure for you: the world’s largest underground trampoline. Just unveiled in Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales, Bounce Below is a network of trampolines and slides mounted to the walls of an abandoned slate mine at heights of 20 feet to 180 feet off the ground. Visitors are welcome to climb, bounce, slide, and jump in the netting amidst a technicolor light show.

I’ve always wanted to puke off something 180 feet high. If I spent more than a few minutes bouncing around on that I’m sure that will happen. I used to be good about trampolines and merry-go-rounds and bad with car rides. Now I’ve finally got the car rides under control and get sick just thinking about jumping on the trampoline for 5 minutes.

Hit the jump for more shots.
