Ozone Trampoline Park- Fun Times Guaranteed
If you are a student like myself or are working a full-time job, you certainly understand that the opportunities and time to travel become less-er. I have now learnt that all books and no travel make Ivy rather dull. To get the best of both worlds, I decided to shelve all distant travel plans and instead explore Nairobi and its environs.
This pursuit led me to Ozone Trampoline Park, located in Village Market Mall. I went over the Easter holiday so the place was packed. I reckon a visit any time other than a public holiday would be better. A visit on a weekday would be ideal.
Ozone Trampoline Park
You are required to sign an injury waiver and general release form as you pay at the reception area. The first thing you notice upon entering the park is the graffiti all over.
The ambience screams urban vibes. The artwork is beautifully done and what stands out is the matatu fixed on the wall.
I could not pass on the opportunity to strike a pose.
On paying, we were given special Jump socks (which you are supposed to wear while jumping, shoes are not allowed inside) then proceeded to sign a waiver.
The trampoline park is divided into different sections. There’s a basketball section, a ‘gymnastic’ section, a dodgeball section, a wall climbing section and a trampoline section (these are not the actual names).
Other than just bouncing, there are different games you can play in the park. The bouncing element is what makes the games more fun.
We tried out different games and my absolute favourite was basketball. The whole experience was so much fun it definitely awoke my inner child. The hour we spent at the park seemed like a mere five minutes and I honestly can not wait to go back.
I would highly recommend Ozone Trampoline Park for a fun day out. It is a great place to let loose and burn some calories. It would especially be a hit for kids.
The price per hour is Shs 950 for persons over 110 cm tall and Shs 250 for the Jump socks.
*The Jump socks are for keeps
Bowling at Village Market’s Village Bowl:
Back in early December of last year, I decided to try out bowling, which is also done at Village Market. Village Bowl’s ambience is simple and airy with pops of colour.
On paying, you are given bowling shoes and instructions on how to bowl.
One game is made up of ten rounds. So if you are a group of four, for example, each of you would bowl ten times (taking turns) and that would make up one round. Prices are per game.
Bowling was such a ball. It was so much fun. I can definitely see it becoming one of my favourite games to play.
It would be the most fun as a group activity so carry your family and/ or friends and a competitive spirit and you will have a good time. Who knows, maybe you could be added to the leaderboard!
*The price is inclusive of renting the shoes. Also, make sure you carry/ wear socks.
Bowling in Kenya
Other places where you can bowl in the country are Pins Entertainment in Sarit Centre, Stike Arcade at Waterfront, Strikez at Westgate or PlayLand Amusement Park at NextGen Mall, Mombasa Road.
Also if you have not been to Village Market, you should definitely go. It is worth checking out. The new wing is beautiful. The Mall is full of character and it is not your typical mall in Nairobi.
Aside from Village Bowl and Ozone Trampoline Park, the new wing also houses Glitch Virtual Reality, Under The Sea which is a children’s playground, BallPoint Social Club– a social space with indoor games and an eatery, as well as Rev, the best place to experience virtual racing. Village Market has lots of unique shops and fantastic eateries. Check out their website for more information and for updates on events happening in the mall.

Travel does not have to be across continents or to different cities, sometimes all you need is in your backyard. Explore and enjoy your city.
