Latitude Greenacres has joined the BOUNCE tribe!
by Sharon Harrington
Latitude Greenacres is now a part of the BOUNCE Tribe! Never fear, it still has all the same great activities you’ve come to expect and they will add their Freestyle Academy skills training courses to the mix in term four.
For those that haven’t yet ventured to this amazing indoor adventure playground, BOUNCE Greenacres has a stack of high-energy activities for all ages. There are around 50 interconnected trampolines, a rock climbing section, sky-walk, ninja warrior course and a dedicated little kid’s zone to name just some of the activities.
Activities for children 110cm+
As my daughters are now 5 & 7 years old, they were able to tackle some of the more challenging areas of BOUNCE and had a brilliant time!
Rock climbing wall
First on the list of activities to tackle was the epic rock-climbing wall. This area alone could occupy all your children’s time. This was Miss 5 year old’s first time in the rock climbing section and she was able to get about halfway up many of the walls. She was a little nervous at first but it didn’t take long for her to get into it.
Miss 7 year old has been a few times before and can climb to the top of most of the walls. Her favourite part was jumping off the 8-metre high bungee platform. Adults can join in too if they are game!
This was Miss 7 year old’s pick for best activity in the center. The sky walk is an obstacle course set 8 metres above ground level and is not for the faint hearted! Participants walk the beam, balance on a tight rope and swing their way through the challenge.
The free jump area is especially good for younger children aged 5+ years who are not ready for more difficult sections of the centre. Kids can run up vertical trampolines and bounce to their heart’s content. As well as younger kids having loads of fun bouncing and running, I saw some spectacular backflips from older skilled teenagers.
There is also a dedicated dodge ball area that is great for parties and groups. Two teams throw soft balls at each other as they jump around the court.
This area was a total hit with primary school aged kids. Whether they are battling each other on the beam with foam logs, leaping into the foam pit or just lining up the cubes of foam, kids can spend ages in here.
X-Park (ninja warrior style obstacle course)
Those 125cm+ can enjoy this ninja warrior inspired obstacle course. Miss 7 year old was just tall enough to enter and enjoyed much of it, but it really is designed for older kids as in some parts being taller and stronger would be helpful. There are trampolines, vault boxes, monkey bars, warped walls and a flying fox to name some of the challenges.
Slam Dunk basketball area
This area looks fantastic for those into basketball. It features full-height basketball rings above runway trampolines surrounded by padded walls and floor mats.
Dedicated kid’s zone for children under 5 years
I have fond memories of the kid’s zone from when my daughters were little. The area is separated from the big kid’s area for peace of mind and contains trampolines, a foam pit and a play area. This is a great place to come for a mid-week play date and a coffee while the littlies play. This area is suitable for ages 18 months to 5 years.
BOUNCE is a popular choice for birthday parties, providing a dedicated host and party room to celebrate in after all the bouncing fun.

Café overlooking all the action
Parents can grab a coffee and something to eat and watch the action from up high.
BOUNCE is a great place to visit to get the kids active while having lots of fun. Whether you have little kids, big kids or teenagers, there is something for everyone to do!
