It’s hard to justify buying a trampoline as an adult. There are so many other things that seem more worthy or more necessary, like food and shelter, but is there a better feeling than the one you get when you leap into the air, letting gravity take its course before briefly touching the surface and springing back higher than before? Okay, you can probably think of a few things to top that, but in the moment a perfectly executed leap sure feels up there with the best of them. Try it for yourself. Jump into the air. Right now.

After so many rough rides, it’s no surprise that some fans decide to get off for good (until the next new attraction comes along at least!).

Sometimes life can be hard. You can wake up in the middle of the night with a million and one things running through your head and be unable to find a single solution.
