Is this huge underground trampoline in Wales the best thing ever?

Metro

A huge slate cavern in North Wales has been installed with the worldís biggest underground trampoline to offer unique and fun-filled adventures, set to open on 4th July. This giant underground playground is the first of its kind in the world. Bounce Below brings trampolining to a new terrain. Unlike anything seen before, three huge trampolines are hung in the old slate cavern at varying levels, linked together by 60ft slides. Visitors are taken to the impressive 100 x 60 foot cavern by an old mining train and kitted out in special overalls and a helmet before being let loose in the caves to bounce, climb and slide in the most unique setting.  The walls are kitted out with technicoloured lights which illuminate the subterranean background with vibrant colours.  The LEDs also reveal the beauty of the underground cavern, which was dug out by hand for 4500 hours to remove 500 tons of rubble in a process akin to the slate mining that took place there. Bounce Below is part of the Zip World group that won international acclaim last March when they installed a pair of mile long zip lines at Zip World Velocity, that sees riders fly through the skies at over 100mph, 500ft in the air.

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate this amazing photograph, please? A giant trampoline in a cave that’s twice the size of St Paul’s cathedral. Just wow.

This ridiculously cool spectacle is in fact the world’s biggest underground trampoline (you’d have thought it was the world’s only underground trampoline, right?), and it’s set to open in North Wales early next month.

Which is beyond exciting because these ridiculously cool concepts are always either in Japan or the US, so let’s all just give a really big high five to the Brits behind Bounce Below.

The cave itself features various trampolines at different levels, which are connected by 60ft slides (not a joke).

When the caverns open on July 4, guests will be taken to the caves by mining carts and…
