Adventurous methods of exercise


The Welsh mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog is turning old slate quarry caverns into a recreational facility, featuring giant trampolines hovering 180 feet above the ground

Bounce Below, as the concept was dubbed, consists of a number of  trampolines linked by a 60 foot twisted slide, which are spread throughout caverns about twice the size of St Paul's Cathedral. The subterranean areas will be illuminated while visitors indulge in the exhilarating activities. 

Founder Sean Taylor said:
 "We got the idea when my business partner saw this done in woods in France but this has never been done in a cavern, this really is a world first in Wales," continuing,"It's a one hour activity where customers get dressed up in a cotton overall and given a helmet, they then jump on a train and travel inside the mountain. There are three giant trampolines with three metre net walls to stop people climbing out. Each is linked by a slide to go down and a walkway to go up - the biggest slide is 60ft."

The facility is set to open to the public some time next month.
