We've just found our favourite trampoline centre. Not only does it have all the key trampoline elements such as freestyle jumping area, dodgeball courts, giant air bags, basketball lanes, foam pits and performance trampolines but extra elements such as a climbing wall, high obstacle course, clip-on climbing walls, a battle balance beam and a fantastic play area for kids who are five years old and younger.

Latitude gives you an hour to play and you choose whether you want to jump, climb or play or do a combination of each. It's a huge plus point that you can combine so many activities in one place. You need to wear suitable shoes for the clip-on climbing and high obstacle course while the Latitude grip socks are used for everything else.

The centre is very large in the shape of a rectangle and has a lovely fresh feel splashed with bright colours like orange, red, yellow and pink. The centre has cooling and heating provisioned and some large doors can be opened on one side to let in some fresh air. The piped music is pleasant and contributes to the vibe without being too obtrusive.

Upstairs near the entrance area is a nice café with a good range of food, snacks and drinks, birthday party rooms which are nicely presented, an area with tables and a mezzanine with tables which looks over the play area. There is visibility over the Kids Zone for younger kids and part of the main area. However, you can't sit on the balcony area and sip on a latte and see you kids across the whole centre unless you have the eyes of a hawk. The clip-on climbing area is out of sight in the far corner even for hawks.

There are plenty of free open lockers for shoes in the central corridor plus some secure lockers ($2 per locker). There are no extra rides which would provide the opportunity to nag Mum and Dad to spend extra money. Drinking fountains, on the ground floor to the left of the centre corridor as you come off the floor, are available for patrons to use.

The climbing area in one corner of the centre has two "stairways to heaven", a triangular structure, which is designed to move with the motion of the climbers, with three difficult ladder type climbs plus thirteen other climbs which are fun and colourful. The Down Rush is an activity in this area where climbers can leap off a 5 metre wooden tower, with only the auto-belay to slow their decent.

The climbs use an auto-belay system which means that a single person can climb by themselves. However younger kids need to be supervised by an adult. There are two carabiners connected to the harness which probably increases safety but adds to the complexity of detaching from and attaching to the floor mat. The same harness system is used for the clip-on climbing and high obstacle course. Children under the age of 12 need to be supervised by an adult and the staff monitor and assist where necessary, including a safety brief for first timers. Overall the climbs are very good but the kids enjoyed the climbs at Clip 'N Climb locations more.

Latitude has the following areas. In one corner closest to the elevated seating area is a curved climbing wall with a soft floor. You can traverse this wall without ropes. If you fall off there's a soft landing. Next to this area are two foam pits which are great fun to jump in and wallow about like a pregnant hippo. Between the foam pits is a battle balance beam. Long "soft" tubes with handles are provided to battle against an opponent and force them to fall into the foam pit. In this case the loser might be a winner since it can't be too bad falling into a pit of soft foam cubes. The high obstacle course also ends in this pit so be on the lookout for some-one being expelled out of a red twisting tunnel slide.

Next to this area is a freestyle jumping with a field of interconnected trampolines, inclined walls and soft blocks to bounce up on to. On two sides of the freestyle area is a high obstacle course. Put on a harness, clip in and cross a course in the air constructed from a beam, suspended blocks and wire. The course ends with a twisty tunnel slide which dumps you into a foam pit.

As you move along the wall there are four trampolines with big air bags at the end and in the corner are six performance trampolines where you can be a wall demon and bounce off the walls.

The clip-on climbing walls are in the other corner and then there are two dodgeball courts and three basketball lanes.

Next to this is a brilliant area for kids who are five years of age and younger. The Kids Zone is a decent size and is lined with bench seats and little round tables. There is an area for little climbers, little jumpers and little kids who just want to have fun. The corner of this area has a foam pit and a climbing wall with fun colourful holds around two sides of the pit. Fall off the wall and you'll end up in a pit full of foam blocks. There is also a line of soft stepping stones in the foam pit. There are some small trampolines which extend up the wall and an area like a Play Centre with a multi-level structure, slides and ball pits. Being five and under has never been so good.

Some tips to make your trip to Latitude hum:
  • Make sure you bring enclosed shoes for the climbing areas
  • If you want to start on the climbing areas first, come a little early and harness up straight away to avoid any queues.
  • Come back time after time and save with a session multi pass
