Flip Out, the UK’s biggest adventure park franchise, is opening a new super centre in Aylesbury on Saturday (12/12) which includes a glow in the dark ice rink and bumper cars.
The enormous 45,000 sq. ft venue, in the former BHS store in the Friars Square Shopping Centre, cost over a million pounds to refit and will generate 75 new jobs in the town.
The state of the art indoor park is packed with new features including an interactive mini golf, a bumper car track, ninja tag, laser quest, an ice rink, interactive football and a 10,000 sq. ft indoor interactive assault course.
The huge venue is one of the first ‘super-centres’ to be launched by the popular franchise and will also include a large soft play area for toddlers and parents to relax with refreshments and snack from the cafe.
Richard Beese, the co-founder of Flip Out, said: “This is a revolutionary, new concept, adventure park and I can’t tell you how excited we are to be opening our doors in time for the Christmas period.
“It’s been a difficult year for everyone but now we want to give people an outlet to go have some fun and still be safe.
“If you’re been stuck at home bouncing off the walls in frustration, then what better way to blow off some steam with the family!
“This park, with no trampolines or inflatables, is the first of its kind, and is absolutely jam-packed with a multitude of fantastic activities and we can’t wait for the people of Aylesbury to enjoy what’s on offer!”
The new centre will be over 2 floors and will run classic Flip Out sessions including fully hosted birthday parties, late-night ‘after dark’ discos, toddler soft play activities, and group sleepovers.
Around 25 full-time and 50 part-time roles have been created, with opening times being 10 am to 8 pm Monday to Thursday, 10 am to 9 pm Friday and Saturday and then 10 am to 7 pm on a Sunday.
A 3-hour session costs £20 and the park will offer discounted family pass tickets.
Free parking will be provided for 90 minutes in the shopping centre for all Flip Out customers seven days a week when attending a session.
