The 16-year-old athlete, will welcome the first visitors through the doors of the Wellington-based trampoline park on Saturday, October 7, at 10am and also perform some of the moves which helped him to a first-place finish at the British Championships last month.

Flip Out Somerset offers 36,000 sq ft of active fun for all ages set across two floors, including two Olympic-sized trampolines and 106 inter-linked trampolines.

General manager of Flip Out Somerset, Jeremy Appiah, said:

“We’re thrilled that a talented trampolinist like Corey is officially opening Flip Out Somerset, particularly as he’s a local lad.

“The finishing touches are being put in place and we can’t wait to welcome the first bouncers to our trampoline park.”

Corey Walkes said:

“I’m really excited to be officially opening Flip Out Somerset this weekend.

“It’s great that the county now has its own arena for young people and families to have fun, exercise and get into trampolining.

“I’m also grateful to Flip Out who have agreed to make a contribution towards my costs for the World Championships where hopefully I can bring back gold for GB.”

Located within Chelston Business Park, Flip Out Somerset has five party rooms, an under-5s trampoline area, plus an onsite café serving a range of hot and cold refreshments with views across the trampoline arena.

Activities within the arena include one of the largest free-running ‘stunt-box’ zones in the UK, dodgeball, battle beams, slam dunk basketball and a ninja warrior course.
