The Ultimate Trampoline Park Safety Guide

We love trampolining, you love trampolining, everybody loves trampolining, but did you know that trampolining can be dangerous if proper safety measures are not taken into account?

Here at High Altitude, we take trampoline park safety incredibly seriously. As long as the proper safety standards are met, there’s no reason that everyone cannot enjoy a safe and enjoyable visit to the trampoline park. 

Consider this your ultimate guide to trampoline park safety. In it, we’re going to let you know everything you need to know to ensure every jumper can bounce comfortably. 

 

Trampoline Park Guidelines & Rules

Like every trampoline park, High Altitude has its own set of trampoline park guidelines that must be met by all of our jumpers and guests. 

The purpose of these guidelines is to minimise the risk of any trampoline park accidents or injuries. It’s important that you or anyone else visiting us has a good read through these guidelines before jumping on our court. 

Our guidelines are as followed:

  • When you come into the park you will see the set of rules and safety guidelines at reception and on the approach to the bounce arena.
  • These rules are designed to keep you and others safe while using the park.
  • Here are also guidelines on how to use each activity in the park safely, these can be found throughout the park itself.
  • Please read & understand these rules as the court monitors are strict with them to ensure everybody has a fun & safe time with us.
  • There will be court monitors on court during every session, they are there to enforce the rules & anyone found breaking the rules will, in the first instance, be told what they have done but if they continue with any form of unreasonable behaviour, they will be subject to dismissal from the park & not be able to attend another session for the rest of the day.
  • If someone’s behaviour is deemed extremely dangerous the court monitors & management reserve the right to exclude them from the park with immediate effect.

Our trampoline park regulations can be found around the park when you visit us, and you will be reminded of these when you watch our safety brief (more on that later).

 

Court Monitors: Trampoline Park Supervision 

We have a great team at High Altitude – and our court monitors do a wonderful job of ensuring our trampoline park safety standards are met, keeping everyone safe on our court at all times. 

 

What Court Monitors Do

A court monitor is a member of our staff who keeps an eye on the trampoline court – as well as other areas of the park – to ensure that our rules and guidelines are followed by all participants. 

You can think of a court monitor as a referee – they will be on the lookout for any foul play, and if someone is found to not be following our rules, a court monitor will step in. 

Don’t worry, they’re not as scary as they sound. A court monitor wants everyone to have fun and be safe at all times on the trampolines. 

 

What Court Monitors Have the Power to Do

If a court monitor becomes aware of someone acting in a way that is endangering themselves or others, that person will be given an appropriate warning – they will be told what they have done and why it is not allowed. 

And much like a referee, if the unreasonable behaviour carries on, a court monitor will issue a red card, dismissing that person from the park and they will not be allowed to return for any session that same day. 

If someone is acting in a way that is extremely dangerous, a red card could be issued straight away!

 

Why Our Court Monitors Are Great 

Through their great work, in a span of 12 months, when we welcomed over 50,000 people to our park, there were no major injuries. 

The majority of our staff are first aid trained, so if an incident does occur, our team can react quickly. In short, our court monitors make it possible for everyone to enjoy themselves on the trampolines and amenities at High Altitude. 

 

Trampoline Park Safety Brief 

At High Altitude, our safety brief is a 5-minute video which runs through the rules of the park, and this must be viewed by all who wish to bounce on our court. This way, everyone’s in the know on how to bounce safely and reduce the risk of accidents. 

Accessing the safety brief is easy. If you make your booking online, this can be viewed upon your booking. If you haven’t booked online, that’s no problem, we will just kindly ask that you watch the safety brief on-site before your session. 

 

No Waiver = No Jumping

A completed waiver form is essential if you wish to bounce at High Altitude. 

If you are over 18 years of age, you can fill in the waiver form yourself. Anyone under the age of 18 must have their waiver filled out by a parent or guardian. Waivers must be filled out with the correct information before any bouncing can take place. This is why we suggest filling out your form before arrival, so no boring forms take up your time on the trampolines!

Remember, no waiver = no jumping.
