Adventure park operator Flip Out has opened a 30,000 sq ft attraction at intu Lakeside’s £72 million leisure development.

It’s the latest leisure brand to open at intu Lakeside, following the recent opening of one of the largest Hollywood Bowl venues to date. Family entertainment centre Nickelodeon Adventure and Puttshack will follow later this year.


The leisure development at intu Lakeside has also been selected by thriving food hall business Market Halls for its first out-of-town concept, The Hall. Other restaurants choosing intu Lakeside to launch include new brand Chiktopia, a start-up fried and grilled chicken restaurant making its debut this summer. 

Flip Out’s new adventure park features dozens of trampolines and several UK-first attractions.

Attractions include a ninja tag game, obstacle course, battle beams, travellator, parkour stunt area, wipe out zones and the UK’s longest traverse climbing wall.

Rebecca Ryman, regional managing director of intu, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Flip Out as the latest leisure brand at intu Lakeside and we can’t wait for visitors to enjoy its unique offering of healthy fun for everyone.

“A number of exciting brands have either opened or will soon open at intu Lakeside bringing new, compelling leisure experiences to what is already one of the country’s most popular shopping destinations.  We want to put a smile on our customers’ faces while creating a buzz for our retailers, and this is exactly what the new leisure development is already delivering.”

Shaf Allyman, General Manager at Flip Out intu Lakeside, said: “We’re so excited to have opened our state-of-the art adventure park at intu Lakeside’s amazing new leisure development.

“The leisure development at intu Lakeside is a fantastic place to spend time and offers a compelling experience for customers that is driving footfall and creating an environment for operators like us to thrive. This will help us achieve our aim of delivering massive amounts of healthy, awesome fun for all.”

Ahead of the development launch, a number of retailers including Zara, River Island, H&M and Next have invested in new stores at intu Lakeside where a £10 million refurbishment of the centre is also underway.
