Bringing the innovative concept of a trampoline-filled arena to Manchester, Jump Ninja houses all the fun, fitness and party events that you can have in a trampoline park. From the very young to the ‘young at heart’, we have something for everyone! Here, both children and adults alike can jump around safely in an atmosphere of high-flying family fun. Our Park is fitted with the latest and best in trampoline technology to ensure that every visitor enjoys themselves from the moment they step in.
We always put safety and quality at the core of what we do, continually investing in our park and our people. So be sure that you are in safe hands with Jump Ninja.
As well as being a recreational activity, trampolines also form a valuable tool for children and adults alike who have autism and other sensory integration disorders (e.g. Asperger’s Syndrome). Our sessions have been specifically designed to cater for the needs of these people as well as providing families with the opportunity to meet other families who face similar day-to-day challenges. This session is open to anyone who suffers from autism or similar condition. One free parent or carer is allowed access onto the trampolines with every autistic person.
We plan to commence these 2-hour sessions on weekday mornings. We will open up our entire trampoline arena including the huge air-bag, soft ball play area, jumping runway, and foam pit for all jumpers to enjoy.
The Science behind Trampolines and Autism
This part can get a little technical so please bear with us…
People with autism often have deficiencies in their vestibular and proprioceptive sensory systems. The vestibular sense is very important for the perception of movement in the body, and is routed through the stimulation of the inner ear as the head’s position is changed. The proprioceptive sense is the perception of movement in the body as communicated through the ligaments, joints and muscles. Those with normal sensory input process these two senses smoothly; those with autism and sensory disorders do not. This explains why some people with autism seem to walk oddly, because they cannot understand the input they receive through their bodies’ contact with the floor and other movement.
