Plans for £1m Lincoln trampoline park dropped

Plans to open a new trampoline park in Lincoln have been mothballed, with partners concerned the commitment would ‘have a detrimental effect’ on their existing business.

Bounz House, which was in planning to open in the former Nexon Group unit off Whisby Road, would have been a 16,000 square foot business providing trampolining activities and events.

The project was revealed in May by Darren Crookes, who is managing director at Lincoln-based interiors specialists APSS, and partner Laurence Barrass.

It would have provided local competition to national brand Jump Inc, who announced plans for a trampoline park off Tritton Road a few weeks earlier.

Laurence Barrass said: “Darren Crookes and myself have made the difficult decision not to proceed with the Lincoln Trampoline park business venture.

“We felt the effort and commitment to successfully deliver the trampoline park would have a detrimental effect on the running and operation of the APSS business at a time when we are extremely busy with both the core business and construction activity.”
