|It is now possible to bounce your way across Melbourne's Trampoline centres. Dodge a ball in Seaford, spring into a foam pit in Altona, bounce like a kangaroo in Glen Iris or shoot a hoop while doing a super high jump at Rowville.
All the trampoline centres operate in a similar manner. You pay for a session (booking is recommended) and the session duration is typically one hour. The centres are usually based around a free jumping area, dodge-ball, trampolines with a foam pit at the end, trampolines for experienced jumpers and trampolines with basketball rings.
The prices are generally $18 for one hour and you need to buy grip socks which will cost an extra amount (around $2) but they can be re-used at the next visit. Some centres offer cheaper prices at off-peak hours.
