Looking for an activity to tire out the kids which is fun for the whole family? Great for burning off some energy, getting in your daily exercise, staving off cabin fever on a rainy day, Red Kangaroo has lots of different activities to keep everyone entertained.
I’d taken the boys to a few Birthday parties at Red Kangaroo and once for a session with one of their friends but had never bounced myself so when the four of us were invited to enjoy a family bounce session together I “jumped” at the chance! Red Kangaroo Nottingham is situated just under six miles north of the city centre, easily reachable by car and public transport. There is a big car park on site and the nearest bus stop is only a few minutes walk away.
We arrived at the park about fifteen minutes before the session. This meant that we had time to check in and watch the safety video before our hour long session started. After watching the short safety briefing video we headed into the park. We enjoyed exploring the different sections and stations. The boys loved jumping in the main trampoline area from one trampoline to the next and seeing how high they could go.
My boys have always loved climbing so really enjoyed swinging on these foam filled bags below and the bars in the ninja warrior course.
They thought it was brilliant that they could do a jump over trick on the tallest beam in the trampoline area.
Another firm favourite was the gladiator beam, they were laughing so much, and also the balancing band next to it which is positioned over a large foam pit, great for cushioning your fall, even Daddy had a go.

After the bounce session we went upstairs to the cafe to have lunch. The boys chose a two flavour slush each and a pizza to share and I had a tea and toasted teacake.

We would definitely recommend Red Kangaroo to other families and will certainly be visiting again soon. There are so many different activities to keep everyone entertained and the food was great.

Once you’ve purchased your socks on your first visit you can take them and use them again and again, there’s no need to pay for them each time.
