It's good but not cheap - US$8.00 per session (one hour) at weekends and during national holidays. If you want a longer sesh best value is the day long ticket for US$16.00. You have to also buy socks with rubber grips on the sole at US$2.00 a pair unless you have your own already.

My kids loved it - staff friendly and helpful and it generally seemed safe.

Went yesterday, kids had a great time. Main negative is that it's hot as hell in there, no aircon. It didn't bother the kids but for me it was very uncomfortable. There's not really anywhere to sit in comfort the your kids play, very limited refreshments (no booze).

I think it was $6 for the kids, no problem with that but you pay for an hour session, sessions start and end on the hour, so if you arrive at 2.30 you can either pay full price for half an hour, or stand around and wait till 3pm, which seems silly to me. They should just make $6 for as long as you want - I doubt anyone would stay much longer than an hour anyway.

What’s worse is when you arrive 2:30 you have to wait until 3 for your session to start but it’s not until 3:10 when the trainer is done with the obligatory “training” (telling you how the fuck to jump up and down) that you can start doing what you want.

Yes, they also also asked for my phone number and tried to make me fill out a form with all my personal info. Obviously I gave a false number and refused to fill out the form. Don't they know which country they're in?

Did go there today, with an 11yr boy and a 7y old girl. Both had a good time, though the younger one was a bit light for the trampoline stuff and somewhat bored due to the lack of "friends". The boy did have a super time and made friends with other kids. Complain of the girl: Nobody speak Khmer.

Indeed, a lot of white nose people and a lot of other non-Khmer Asians.

Access goes in hourly blocks, which is logical, since most people are there on 1 hour tickets and every hour at the top of the clock, the hall is cleared, etc.

It's hot in there. They do sell water and soda, though it costs a fortune, $1 for 0.5 litre and the small soda's $1.5. Expect to drink 1.5 litre in the hour waiting for the kids to be exhausted.

Access is $6 for up to1.20m and $8 otherwise.

The hour starts with an introduction by the trainers and some dedicated "fall-down" training for those seemingly needing that. Since most are exhausted after an hour, it would be suitable, when the access would be more flexible and longer then the exact 1 hour. There is an higher floor terrace overlooking the whole, with some comfy furniture.

The little pop fell asleep on the motobike, on the way home. From Toul Kork, it's a long way out.
Both want to go again.

This is where learning English comes in. My kid speaks Khmer and English and never has a problem communicating with other children.

I was going to set one of these up a year ago and had a money man (actually a local lady) fully on board. I decided it was too much work to potentially line the coffers of someone else. I wonder who owns it?

Can't remember the name but the guy running it is from Singapore - also opened one in Bangkok, I think he said it was called BOUNCE - https://www.bounceinc.co.th/#/.

It's unclear whether he actually owns them, a partner or just start-up manager...

Looking at the whole of that location, I do have my doubts, whether this will be viable.

The trampoline business itself maybe, though given it is located at the very back of a whole complex, which is seemingly planned to be filled with similar initiatives, though still largely empty, I do think, it goes the same road as the Toul Sangke "New" container nightmarket, which closed some 6 months ago, after being completely deserted, without visitors, leaving a lot of small business owners shattered due to their failed investments.

Looking at shiny AEON2, that's crowded, so having suitable chances to survive. The freshly factory outfit is more for Western countries, where initiatives in these second purpose building environments are much more appreciated and encouraged. Cambodians seem to be associated with the shiny/glossy appearance and not with abandoned factories, associating with low-income life-styles.

This is so true with just about every aspect of modern Khmer mindset now. They don't care as long as it keeps up appearances.

Went there on the weekend. Kids really liked the place. There was not that much people in morning. Maybe half local and half expats kids.

If you book online (no need to pay online, just book) you can get 20% off. So weekend price starts from $4.8 and weekdays from $3.2 which I think is very reasonable price.

Edit: realised that you probably need the discount code and go through this site to get the discount. Discount seem to be only for december/january though https://cambodeals.com/en/brands/fly-phnom-penh/

In Cairns we have Jump Mania. Sixteen dollars an hour booked online, eighteen dollars otherwise. The kids love it. Tomorrow the eldest daughter walks there on the school trip, only a few minutes away. Like everything where I live.

Took one of my boys to the one in Bangkok at the weekend. Perhaps 3 times bigger than the one here, all air conned, several extras included such as dodge ball area, climbing, etc etc, and best of all its in a shopping mall with cafes, shops etc so I didn't have to sit there bored and having a free sauna while waiting.
