FlipOut’s strong safety record

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Flip Out has re­ceived one of the fewest amount of emer­gency call-outs to tram­po­line cen­tres in the last year.

The Ruther­glen-based arena was at­tended six times by the Scot­tish Am­bu­lance ser­vice in 2017.

All call-outs, re­vealed through a Free­dom of In­for­ma­tion re­quest from the Ruther­glen Re­former, are un­der­stood to have been for mi­nor in­juries. Flip Out ranked sec­ond on the list of fewest num­ber of call-outs.

A spokes­woman for Flip Out said: “We’ve had more than 250,000 vis­i­tors in the last year with only six re­quire­ments for am­bu­lance at­ten­dance, all of which were for mi­nor in­juries.

“Tram­po­line parks, when run in a safe, re­spon­si­ble man­ner, are a healthy and fun leisure pur­suit. Like the ma­jor­ity of other sports, there is al­ways a risk of in­jury, how­ever when our safety rules are fol­lowed that risk is ex­tremely low.

“The safety of our guests is our num­ber one pri­or­ity. Our staff are trained to the high­est level and are ex­tremely vig­i­lant en­sur­ing that all jumpers stick to the rules, while hav­ing fun at the same time.”
