A trampoline park has been set up in the city of Sunderland.

The park features a main court that includes over 60 interconnected trampolines of all shapes and sizes, blocks, boxes and angled trampolines that let you bounce off the walls.

It also has a dodgeball court filled with horizontal and vertical trampolines, two slam dunk basketball lanes with trampoline launch pads, a foam pit, two tumble tracks and three trampolines with a performance wall for experienced gymnasts.
