Estonians open a trampoline centre in Iceland

An Estonian company has built a new family and trampoline centre in Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland.

The company, Skypark, which was launched in Estonia in 2009, opened the Icelandic trampoline centre on 20 August, celebrated as the day of restoration of independence in the company’s home country. It bears a symbolic meaning as Iceland was the first country to recognise the sovereignty of Estonia after the restoration of independence.

The Reykjavik trampoline centre, the first of its kind in Iceland, has a total area of ​​1,000 square metres (10,764 sq ft), which includes 400 square metres (4,306 sq ft) of trampolines. The centre is run by a local company that bought the concept from Estonians. The total cost was approximately €200,000.

In its eight years of operation, Skypark has exported its trampoline centre concept to Finland, Russia (four centres) and Ukraine; in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia four family centres operate under the Skypark trademark.

The company is also building a new Skypark in Tallinn, at the new planned shopping and entertainment centre, T1 Mall, which will open its doors in October 2018.
