A visit to the trampoline park with your children, friends, or colleagues should be an exciting endeavor. After jumping on the trampoline for a few minutes, however, it may start to get boring. To keep things interesting, here are some fun games you can play:
- Crack the Egg
One person sits in the middle of the trampoline with legs pulled up to chest and arms held tightly around the knees. The other participants jump on the trampoline at a distance from the “egg.”.The aim is to get the “egg” to crack i.e. remove hands from knees.
- Cherry Bomb
A volleyball or a basketball is thrown in the air and everyone on the trampoline bounces to prevent the ball from hitting them. At the same time, they have to ensure that the ball keeps bouncing on the trampoline. If the ball touches a participant 3 times, they are out.
An object e.g., a roll of paper or a ball is thrown on the trampoline and everyone jumps to avoid it. If the object touches a participant, they are disqualified from the game and have to get off the trampoline.
- Stealthy Ninja
All—but one—participants are blindfolded and the person without a blindfold, the ninja, tries to knock down the others. The ninja must rely on stealth and cannot make any moves that may injure the other players. The other participants also try to knock down the ninja.
In this game, participants stand around the trampoline and take turns performing a trick in the middle of the diving board. Each participant has to replicate the trick that was performed and a failure to do so earns them a letter till they spell the word T-R-A-M-P-O-L-I-N-E, signaling their disqualification from the game. You may choose to spell T-R-A-M to make the game shorter and perhaps more exciting.
While playing the game, it is important to play safe and not endanger yourself or other participants. Here are some safety tips to keep in mind.
