Since 9 June, Groningen has been home to the largest trampoline park in Europe: FreeStyle Motion, featuring an obstacle course, inflatable slides, a mini football field and tons of trampolines.

Sikkom reports that the complex at the Bornholmstraat in the city of Groningen was a massive warehouse in a past life. Aside from loads of trampolines, the 2,800 square meter complex also has an obstacle course that would present a decent challenge for any free runner, a maze, climbing walls, slides and a professional-grade gymnastic floor.
Menno and Edgar Lindeman, the twin brothers who serve as directors of the Groningen activity centre (which is the fourth one in the Netherlands), both have strong connections to gymnastics and hope that FreeStyle Motion will offer an exciting way for people to get active.
“Interest in gymnastics had declined for a variety of reasons”, Edgar told Dagblad van het Noorden. “Here, young people can see what each other is doing and challenge each other to try it, too. Everyone is also happy to help each other out, so it’s also a social activity.”
Dagblad van het Noorden made this fun, experimental video to demonstrate how visitors can entertain themselves at the park, even if they’re jumping by themselves.
