Trampoline park near Coventry destroyed in fire is set to reopen this spring

A TRAMPOLINE park destroyed in a fire two years ago is to reopen this spring in a new purpose-built building.

The Red Kangaroo Trampoline Park is getting ready to start afresh in Exhall, on the Coventry and Warwickshire border, on the same site as their previous home.

A reopening date set for April is dependent on the latest Covid restrictions.

The 32,500 sq ft unit has been designed and built by The Wigley Group, which bought the site in 2016. It includes a mezzanine floor that will act as a viewing gallery, a glass-fronted atrium at the entrance, ribbon windows, and an air conditioning system.

Paul Wrightman, owner of the Red Kangaroo brand, said: “To see the site destroyed by fire just eight months after we opened in 2018 was devastating, but, as they say, every cloud has a silver lining and it gave us an opportunity to help design a building to meet our requirements rather than us having to fit into a space already there.

“We are grateful to The Wigley Group for giving us the opportunity to be involved during the design stage and are delighted to have signed a long lease now building work has been completed. We can’t wait to get our doors back open to the public so they can see the wonderful new home that has been created for us.

Next door to the trampoline park the company has also built Exhall Three, a new, self-contained unit suitable for the warehouse and distribution sectors.

Louis Smith, head of estates at The Wigley Group, said: “It was heartbreaking when the site was destroyed by fire, but to see two new, more modern units rising from the ashes is exciting for all involved.”
