The country’s first indoor Fusion SkyRider has zipped into action in Preston.
And fearless city kids have been showing what daredevils they are leaping off a 28-foot high platform and “flying” around a trampoline park at speeds of up to 40 mph.
Energi, which opened on the Queens Retail Park in 2015, spent £140,000 to be the first in the UK to offer the exhilarating ride.
Both adults and children can enjoy the experience, strapped into a harness and whizzing around the building on a 63-metre long track. Energi, which employs almost 70 staff, is the brainchild of couple Steve and Beverley Butterfield, from Wrea Green and Andy and Helen Ince, from Manchester.
Beverley said: “We are absolutely delighted to be able to bring Fusion to Engeri. It was a big investment to make, but it’s already been a great success and has been really well-received.
“It shows our level of commitment to providing our customers with the very best that is available and we are certain it will be worth every penny.”Energi – which opened in 2015 – is a state-of-the-art 174-trampoline hub spanning 25,000 square feet.
More than 70,000 springs were used in the construction of the £750,000 centre, which is home to dodge ball, air ball, slam dunk, a climbing wall and a free jump area.
Bosses opened the trampolining park after realising there was not a centre in Preston to take their own children to.
Beverley said previously: “We found that we were taking them to Manchester or down south to experience something like this.”
Energi was the first trampolining park to be opened in Lancashire.
