BOSSES behind a new Dundee trampoline attraction have revealed how they jumped at the chance to invest in the city.
Ryze is set to bring a £3 million indoor trampoline park to an undisclosed location in Dundee, with the creation of up to 70 jobs.
It follows on from similar attractions that the company runs in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The site will include a cafe, a chocolate factory and a ‘ninja park’ obstacle course.
Scott Fairgrieve, director at Ryze, said: “We are pleased to announce we have identified Dundee has our next site and our legal team are currently finalising the details to secure the premises.
“We believe Dundee is an excellent location, which is accessible to a number of other areas such as Perth and Fife.
“We also looked at a number of other sites in central Scotland, but felt Dundee was spending a lot of money regenerating the city — we felt Dundee was a ‘happening’ city.
“I have also attended the skateparks in Dundee over the years so I am familiar with the city and will be keen to work with local businesses and suppliers in the area.”
He added: “With the refurbishment that will take place, we will certainly be looking for an opening date in either October or November, but it will definitely be 2016.
“What we are looking to bring with this activity centre is some good old-fashioned fun.
“It’s an individual activity and is something all skill levels can get involved in — there is no peer pressure with it.
“If one person can do a backflip, but you can’t, then no problem. There’s no right or wrong way, only a fun way.
“With this site we wanted to make sure we could make this an experience for all the family and all ages.
“You can be as energetic or as quiet as you like, with a session on the trampolines and ninja or a coffee and snack in the cafe — or a trip to the chocolate factory.
“We have something for all age groups to be able to enjoy the experience.”
The pricing will follow its other UK parks with a £25 family session running from 6pm on a Monday.
Ryze also runs or has affiliated sites in Asia and the US, and plans to expand its operation across Europe.
