5 Fun Aerial Parks Facts to get
you Flying these School Holidays!
School holidays are here and we’re half way through the school year, which means winter has arrived too. For some of us, winter is our favourite season of the year, but for the sun seekers, the darkness and chill are enough to make us want to hide under the covers and hit snooze until spring. However, unless you’re a bear, it’s kind of strange to go into hibernation, so today we are bringing you 5 fun aerial park facts that’ll make you want to jump up and do something fun and active during the winter school holidays with the kids.
Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift wrote a smash hit together while chilling on a trampoline
According to MTV News, Swiftie said:
"I actually I wrote a song with Ed Sheeran on a trampoline in my backyard for the new album. That's a song called Everything Is Changed. We, for real, [were] sitting on my trampoline in my backyard cause we had been writing a song and I was like, 'Hey, I just got a trampoline.'You want to see it?”
She went onto say:
"We ended up writing an entire song out there. For portions of the song, [we were bouncing around] 'cause it's a trampoline and it's fun, and the combined maturity level of both of us is 8 years old."
There’s nothing like a trampoline to get those creative juices flowing and to make you feel like a spring chicken again. Singing with your bests mates on our tramps is also strongly encouraged at Latitude too.
DodgeBall (the movie) was released 14 years ago but still gets quoted regularly on the Latitude floor today
"If you're going to become true dodgeballers, then you've got to learn the five d's of dodgeball: dodge, duck, dip, dive and dodge!"
If you haven’t seen the movie starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, the winter holidays is the perfect time to kick back and switch it on. We have bouncy dodgeball courts in every Latitude super park, so once you’ve watched the funny flick you’ll be ready to take the competitive action into your own hands.
Indoor rock climbing is a killer full body work out
“Indoor climbing is a great full-body workout for both strength and cardio. You’ll work your shoulders—especially your delts—and build your bi’s and tri’s; plus, complex climbing movements use both the arms and legs, and that triggers your core,” says 5.14 (extreme-grade) climber Seth Lytton of trainingbeta.com.
Plus, if your goal is to one day scale a cliff in the great outdoors, then the best place to get a taste for it is right here, indoors, with the guidance of our helpful Latitude crew.
NASA gives trampolining two thumbs up!
Studies by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) scientists show that rebounding on a trampoline is 68% more effective than jogging and yet requires less effort. Mum and dads or any guardians watching the kids over the school holidays may want to rethink simply spectating at Latitude and get out onto the activity floor and have a bounce themselves.
Time Out ranked us the best trampoline park. Aww shucks!
Time Out Melbourne, the authority on the best things to do around town, put our Heidelberg centre at the top of their list of favourite trampoline parks. Time says:
“Boasting over an acre of indoor aerial activities, Latitude offers a world of aerial entertainment for little kids and big kids alike. There’s more than 100 interconnected trampolines, a performance area, a giant airbag, dodgeball courts and basketball lanes in this indoor centre. After you bounce, go for a round of climbing at Latitude’s rock climbing walls or tackle the six-section sky-high obstacle course. There’s fun for the littlest bouncers too with Latitude’s dedicated Kids Zone, designed for kids aged 18 months to five years.”
Yep, that pretty much sums it all up Time Out! Thanks for the write-up.
Latitude is abuzz with action, activity and laughter at all times, but the fun atmosphere zooms right up over the winter break. Be sure to bring the brood in from the cold and turn up the heat together at Latitude these school holidays.
