Flip out, Chester – Review

Yesterday we made a spontaneous decision to go to Flip out in Chester. Lily won a voucher in a fancy dress competition for £20. So we were able to use that. Going on family adventures is one of our goals and aims and we wanted to incorporate family time into this. Especially as it’s looking like Andrew has a job offer but it’s working full days on weekends. Meaning our family time will either me me and the kids or me, Andrew and Imogen which isn’t ideal. However, we have to take what is offered at the time.

Cost

Flip Out in Chester costs £11 per person per hour with an additional £2 for Flip Out socks if you don’t have any. We bought some this time but have saved them ready to go again. Children under 1.2m can jump for a reduced rate of £6 per per child per hour. There is also a family pass for £32 for 4 people for an hour.

We bought a family pass and two additional people plus under 1.2m for a total cost of £60. We then had to get seven pairs of socks for £14.

Lets jump!

After queuing and watching a short five minute video we were about to go in. There was a delay and the video didn’t start for ten minutes so we got an additional ten minutes at the end.

We took off our shoes, placed them in a locker then set off to bounce.

They all had an amazing time and can’t wait to go back again. We won’t be paying for Imogen or either of us adults next time though, I don’t think she got enough out of it to warrant paying £6 for her. Although she did love it for the whole 5 minutes she spent bouncing. Once she is really walking and jumping I know she will enjoy it a lot more.

Harry was amazing with her. He loved holding her hand and trying to get her to jump. Their bond is getting stronger everyday. It’s amazing to watch.

Before we were about to leave the boys found the dodgeball area so they had a jump around in there throwing soft foam blocks at each other.

I even remembered to make sure that I got in the pictures too! My kids will remember that I came to all these fun things we did.

On our way out (and in) the children saw a climbing area. Next time we will definitely give this a try too.

Verdict – Flip Out

Flip out was great fun and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, it’s not something that we can do every week due to the cost and it only being an hour long, but the children all loved it and can’t wait to go back. We would consider extending the time and going for 2 hours for a £42 family pass and possibly adding the climbing in too. Lily’s friend is having her birthday party there on the weekend and Lily cannot wait.

  1. Great you could enjoy flipping as a family. We have a similar trampoline park here but I haven’t taken my oldest as it’s just so expensive. Toddler sessions are more affordable and I think ours is starting to do happy hour sessions for mixed ages as I wouldn’t normally be able to book a 7 and 2 year old in at the same time. #triedtested

    1. Yes it’s good that it’s all open for everyone to be able to use at the same time. There is a separate under 7’s area but it’s just one open space. It’s a shame you wouldn’t be able to mix ages – families tend to have more than one age range in their family. Thanks for passing by x

  2. My three love a trampoline park but I agree it doesn’t always feel like great value when you only got an hour’s play

    1. For us its 30 minute drive away too! So we spend the same amount of time driving as we do playing!

  4. I keep looking at taking the kids to something like this, it does sound expensive though especially when they charge for little ones like Imogen. It sounds like you all had fun and it’s a great way for the whole family to get active.

    1. We didn’t have to pay for Imogen – and I wouldn’t pay for her next time – but yes all the little bits add up!
