If the interminable winter has left you feeling a bit ‘meh’, perhaps it’s time to inject a little spring into your life. Edinburgh’s first trampoline park, Ryze, opened a couple of weeks ago and has already been drawing the crowds who fancy making like Tigger and spend an hour or two flipping, twisting and generally cavorting around like a lunatic in a giant warehouse. Situated just outside of the city in Dalkeith, Ryze is open seven days a week, with various sessions for kids and, er, even bigger kids.
Activities range from trampoline dodge ball, the super slam basketball court and the ‘bounceboards’ (something akin to a foam snowboard). There are also evening sessions on Fridays and Saturdays (8-11pm) where you can jump along to a clubby soundtrack.
Believe us when we say an hour in this place will put you through your paces, from the exertion and the unavoidable chuckles as someone pulls a trampoline ‘fail’. Expect those abs to feel the burn the next day.
Ryze Edinburgh, Dalkeith. Open seven days, advance booking recommended.
