I am the first to try out kids activities that involve physical exercise – the surest recipe for a quick bedtime. So checking out the new Amped trampoline park at the 1Utama Club has been on our bucket list for some time. We finally made it on a weekday during school holidays and were happy to find a nice addition to kids’ indoor activities in KL.
Amped is smaller than Jump Street, but has a few novelties, like the Power Tower, slide ending in the foam pit and a small platform for free fall jumps into the pit. Amped is also air-conditioned, although that by no means equals a sweat-free jumping experience…
To get to the slide the kids need to navigate through a rope climb, a great exercise! The staff is friendly and hawk-eyed: only one jumper is allowed on most of the stations at the time and I felt they kept the jumpers well under control.
Climbing wall over a foam pit – a great idea. I tried it but found the plastic handles very sharp – maybe they are designed for smaller feet than mine?
Basketball and dodge ball are there, as expected. High-power trampoline is accessible for even the smaller jumpers, which they really loved – but there is only one.
There are chairs just outside the main trampoline area for those waiting. The complex across the street from the Club has also now a few nice looking coffee shops if your jumpers are responsible enough to stay unsupervised.
We paid the off-peak rate of RM19/person, that includes a bottle of water. There is a water fountain in the corridor just outside as well.
After an hour of jumping I had asked a carload of exhausted little jumpers what they though: “The slide was better than Jump Street”, “Great”, “and “We love jumping”. The test jumpers were aged 5-7 and Amped worked well for them. Teens and those wanting to practice some serious trampoline tricks may still prefer the more spacious Jump Street.
