Air-tas­tic jumps to its next project

Belfast Telegraph - Business Telegraph - - News - BY RACHEL MARTIN

TRAMPOLINE park com­pany Air-tas­tic says it hopes to open more sites by the end of this year.

It comes just a month af­ter the firm, part of the Funky Mon­keys brand, cre­ated 30 jobs with its first leisure com­plex in Ban­gor. The ex­pan­sion plans will see trampoline parks spring up in Belfast, New­town­abbey, Dublin, Cork, Gal­way and Lim­er­ick. How­ever, it’s not known ex­actly how long it will take all seven to open.

The first park opened in Ban­gor in De­cem­ber and in­cludes al­most 40 in­ter­con­nected tram­po­lines, an ob­sta­cle course, foam pits, jump chal­lenges, a giant airbag and cafe.

The project was sup­ported by the Growth Loan Fund. Air-tas­tic di­rec­tor Mark Simp­son said the fund was a “key en­abler” for get­ting the brand up and run­ning.
