The Jump-A-Round event, which was presented by Live Lighter and hosted by the City of Gosnells, was held over five days between 7-11 October.
The impressive obstacle course featured a variety of giant inflatables as well as climbing walls, wipeout challenges, water slides and many more activities to suit all fitness levels.
Designed to be inclusive, accessible and safe for all participants, the event was hugely popular with both children and adults alike.
Mayor David Goode said the event was a fantastic way for families to get outside and get active during the school holidays.
Each day of the event was divided into five one-hour “waves”. The different waves were suited for different age groups which meant everyone could complete the course at their own pace.
The start of each day began with Wave 1 which was suited to families with children under 8 years old. The last wave of each day was Wave 5, which had a much faster pace suitable for teens and adults.
The 2018 and 2019 Jump-A-Round events were hugely popular, making this year’s Jump-A-Round well anticipated by the local community.
This year’s event was even bigger and better, running over five days and including an additional 100 metres of obstacle course.
The obstacle course, which was setup by Monsterball Amusements & Hire, totalled just over 400m, making it the longest inflatable obstacle course in the country.
At $5 a ticket (plus booking fee), participants were given access to one of the five waves throughout the day, and could complete the course as many times as they wanted within the hour.
Parents who preferred to watch their kids enjoy the fun could spectate for free, though kids under 8 required a ticket-holding adult to run the course with them.
“Thanks to City of Gosnells for this event. From the initial planning stage to the organisation of the layout and suppliers we had a wonderful experience. Looking forward to being part of their next event! :)” - Ben, Monsterball Amusements & Hire
The course was designed with two dry sections and one water based section and a unique array of challenges to get everyone running, jumping, skipping and sliding.
Some of the most popular challenges set up by Monsterball included the adrenaline jump, DNA challenge, vertical screamer, ninja challenge and the wipeout.
In addition to the obstacle course, there were a number of free attractions to keep everyone entertained including a Junior Jump Challenge for kids under 5, a variety of food trucks and a visit from the Gosnells Bush Fire Brigade.
Over 12,000 adventurers had a go on the inflatable obstacle course over the five days and many more joined in with the other free attractions.
This year’s Jump-A-Round has received positive feedback from the community as an excellent family adventure for the school holidays. A great day out for the kids and family, with a reason to get out of the house and enjoy our beautiful Spring weather.
‘Great community event’ and ‘My kids loved this’ are just some of the reviews being left on the event’s Facebook page.
“Another great event held by City of Gosnells! The event was really successful going from 2 days to 5 and all families participating gave us great feedback on their experience on the day. Stay tuned for the 2021 version as it should event be bigger and better!” - Ben, Monsterball Amusements & Hire
