Running these trampoline centres, I can't believe these are still a viable business after insurance costs?

It will hit their business badly. But they'll bounce back.

Wrong on so many levels. Where to start?

Katie, who is employed as a play-worker at Kidzplay, ....
Katie is now calling on others to learn from her mistake ...

So she is employed to supervise "play", when she can't see the dangers of "play" to her own person. Worrying!

Quote

“Work (Kidzplay) has been amazing,” she said. “They said they will hold my job open for as long as they can so I can return when I am able.”
 

And her employer is happy about that situation?!?! :blink:

Moreover this woman-child is a mother. Does she not realise that whatever measures the facility deploys, there will always be an element of risk in such activities? That means there is a chance, because she wants to behave like a child, that she will end up being unable to fulfill her role as an adult, and in this case, as a parent.

But that's okay. There's always somebody who will catch these kidults ... for instance, their kids:

Quote

Her son, nine-year-old Kai, has also been Katie’s rock throughout the difficult ordeal.“It really has been hard on him and had a big affect on his life. “I cannot take him down the park or anything like that.

“But he has been amazing. He has learnt to do the washing up and other jobs around the house.”

Great to see that one of you is growing up!

And isn't it ironic that adults want to do these "edgy" things, yet accept none of the risks. Around the office it's,"Running? Oh that's a little dull for me. I'm going glacier-surfing [or some such edgy sounding rubbish]."

Next thing they show up with a plaster cast on their big toe, threatening civil action.

In actuality, these kidults aren't edgy in any way. They are snowflakes. They should be "bragging" about how they are gonna chance their arm at using a Dyson hair drier : "It's microprocessor controlled, but the temperature could waver at any point and I could end up as a droplet. Yeah, scary, but that's the kind of person I am...."

Her son is called Kai.

Such a place opened me near recently. There was some article in the local paper about it cost a million quid of something like that. I thought that sounded a tad much for a load of trampolines. So I had a google, not knowing what these places were like, and was somewhat shocked to see articles and youtube vidoes about people seriouly injuring themselves at such places.

Friends of mine, a week or two back, told me they were taking their kids to such a place. I told them about the injuries but they just looked at me as if I was some numpty.

Really awful to hear about this lady.

But, saying that, there is a place in North Wales in some caves which is loads of nets strung up in the caves and its looks tremendous fun. But you do wonder about these things.

Interestingly, over on liveleak, you often see videos of fair rides in places like India and China where they seem to be having the kind of accidents that we used to get back here in the 70's and 80's. We criticise health & safety but there is a point to a lot of it.

We (well, I) criticise the extent to which it's gone and the sledgehammer-to-crack-a-walnut approach rather than the concept. And any bits about protecting idiots from themselves.

The internet is littered with accidents at these places, but people still flock to them. This is just a handful of articles and doesn't include accidents with home trampolines....

Maybe there is a of false illusion of safety as it's "organised", so I will go a bit crazy take my body to the limit.

This is no more dangerous than tales of playing head tennis with house bricks that old people regale us with and how kids today are soft. Give them a truly dangerous activity to partake in and the grumpy old men think they're insane.

Pretty danergous, but it looks like fun!!  The real trend is adults wanting to act like six year olds.

 

Someone was telling me about how they are doing an excercise programming jumping up and down on mini trampolines.  The safety feature is they have a rail to hold on to.  Seems a bit like that workoutbike excercise class trend, except with trampolines.

I imagine ski slopes are more dangerous. Ditto mountain bike parks, bmx perhaps also. They have people jumping around upside down with ice, snow or concrete to cushion their fall.

When overweight single mothers take their kids to a BMX park they seem to be less inclined to have a go on the half pipe ramp themselves though.

I don't see why they shouldn't though.

My brother managed to screw up his knee on a BMX park.

I've just thought of a couple of reasons:

1) my eyes:

2) it would spoil the rest of the view:
