Hi my name is Star and I have been lucky enough to call Gran Alacant my home for over 10 years now. My 9 year old daughter Ashlee and I are often “Out & About” enjoying the local attractions and culture in this part of Spain. Over the next few months I will be sharing some of our experiences with you to encourage you to go “Out & About” yourselves and maybe learn a little bit about this beautiful place we call home.
One day in January when the weather wasn´t so warm, I wanted to find a new indoor activity and discovered Urban Planet in Vista Hermosia Centro Comercial in Alicante which is a trampoline park.
When we entered we were surprised at how large the building was and the amount of different areas there were. We walked through the refreshment area where you can buy soft drinks and snacks and went to the desk. As it was our first time we had to register my name and NIE using one of their tablets and then we returned to the desk where I purchased the required special antislip socks and paid to use the play area for an hour. I put the girls shoes, coats and bags in a locker, grabbed my camera and we were off .
The largest area was filled with many trampolines that also went up the walls and there were some obstacles around as well. The girls loved bouncing on them and then discovered the foam pit that they could bounce and jump into. They spent quite a bit of time trying to coordinate a run, jump and land. Next to the pit was a small raised area with an airbag beside it that lots of kids were flinging themselves onto. After some encouragement Ashlee and Miriam conquered their fears and joined in.
There were a few monitors around who were keeping an eye on everyone and also encouraging them to try new things which was great. Next the girls went into an enclosed space that had trampolines in it with basketball nets at various heights. They had so much fun trying to jump and score a basket. After stopping for a water break Ashlee and Miriam went over to an area that housed a mini ninja warrior circuit. It was fantastic and had various obstacles that can be climbed on, or manoeuvred around to progress around the course. Some of the iconic obstacles from the show, including the starting “stepping stones” and the finishing “wall” were great fun to try out. There was also a staircase and platform for jumping onto a large airbag, however, when we were there this was not operational.
This place is a lot of fun and not too expensive, the socks are €2 and once you have them you can wash them and use them again. They are open Monday to Friday from 16:00 to 22:00 and it costs €9 for one hour per person. On Saturdays, Sundays and holidays they open from 11:00 to 22:00 and it costs €11 per person. You can buy a “bono” ticket for 10 hours for €60, University students can get a 10% discount and they often have special offers such as “Jumpers Day” on Wednesdays where you can get a 30% disco
“Acrobacias” classes cost €20 for one class, €25 for half a month, €50 for a month or you can buy a “bono” for 10 classes for €190. Birthday parties include 1 hour or 1 and a half hours use of the activities with monitors who organise group games and all the children get a pair of socks, a gift, facial fluorescent paint, food and drinks.
