New Inflatable Park Bounces Into MonifiethNeil Hardie
Innoflate Dundee, a new inflatable adventure park, is coming to Monifieth.
Hundreds of families are already excited by the news of a new entertainment option in the area.
But what can we expect the new park to offer? And will it be worth a visit?
Innoflate centres are easiest described as being like giant bouncy castles.
Perhaps the most striking aspect of the Innoflate parks is that they are not just for children. Adults are also welcome.
The only restrictions are for under-4s, who must be accompanied by a paying adult.
The company also runs “Innotot” sessions for its youngest visitors.
Although to be known as “Innoflate Dundee”, the attraction will actually be just over the border in Angus.
It will be built in the former House of Angus retail unit beside Dobbies at Ethiebeaton Park on the outskirts of Monifieth.
Innoflate already operates three parks in Scotland, including one further up the east coast in Aberdeen.
Dundee’s prices have yet to be confirmed, but the other centres give an indication.
A standard one-hour bounce session costs £9.95 in Aberdeen. The cost is the same for adults and children. A two-hour session is £14.95 a head.
Prices are slightly cheaper in Cumbernauld, but slightly more expensive in Livingston.
There are also special rates for themed sessions, such as a Friday and Saturday night “disco”, party rates and a “relaxed” Sunday evening option.
There is no confirmed opening date yet, but work on construction was due to begin on February 7.
Recruitment for around 20 jobs at the site is expected to start in March, and the company hopes to be open before Easter in April.
Again, the exact plans for Dundee have not been confirmed.
But all of the other existing centres in Scotland are open seven days a week from 10am.
They usually close at 8pm but stay open until 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
The first hour in the morning is generally reserved for “Innotots” sessions.
Innoflate Dundee is already on Facebook.
