New Trampoline Park
Smaaash is set to launch an all new dedicated space — The Trampoline Park, where one can enjoy the weightless excitement of bouncing on trampolines, playing basketball in mid-air or falling fearlessly into a massive foam pit. Jumping on a trampoline is the perfect way to get blood pumping, and it also helps kids develop balance, coordination, strength and more. The 1,500 sq feet facility will have several jumping areas. It has numerous individual trampolines that are all connected together to make one massive trampoline with a 45-degree angled matted wall. The Smaaash Trampoline Park is suitable for 3 to 12-year-olds (kids who are of the height of 3 feet to 5.2 feet), and for individuals as well as groups.
