The main centre consists of 5 trampolines, and has overhead tracking covering the entire space making it fully accessible to both able bodied and physically disabled  children/adults. Within the centre there is also a series of ‘sensory stations’ which are also fully accessible.

There is a brand new Dance/Music Studio as well as a new Training Suite which is able to host up to 30 delegates.
