50 jobs set for Derby as inflatable theme park secures new space

A giant inflatable theme park is coming to the centre of Derby bringing more than 50 jobs, in a deal brokered by Salloway Property Consultants.

Jumpin Inflatable Fun, which opens on August 10, will be 18,000 square feet of slides, tunnels and ball pits and much much more.

Based on the former Bounce Revolution site in Siddals Road, the park will be modelled on the company’s first venture in Burgess Hill, Sussex which has already attracted 250,000 since opening last year.

It will have dedicated sessions for toddlers and children with special education needs as well as parties, groups and adult nights. The park will also feature its own café, a viewing gallery and individual party rooms.

Jumpin Inflatable Fun will employ an array of staff from management to marshals, café assistants and party hosts and will be open seven days a week

It will be the company’s third indoor theme park following the success of those in Sussex and Salisbury.

Operations manager, Casey Ruse said: “The concept is exciting and adds to the wealth of things to do in Derby.

“It is the perfect entertainment for families, promoting health, wellbeing and quality family time – encouraging all ages to get active while having fun.”

Hugo Beresford, surveyor at Salloway Property Consultants, which was acting on behalf of a London investor, said: “It has been great to be involved in a project which is designed at the people of Derby and their families having a good time.

“The Siddals Road site is perfectly situated in Derby city centre and has great transport connections as well as being very close to Intu Centre.”
