Since September 21, 2018, Waterfront Bremen has been one attraction richer. With the new „JUMP house“ a trampoline park opened at a shopping center of ECE for the first time.

Immediately adjacent to the cinema, and covering an area of 6,000 sq m, 13 various action areas revolving around jumping, climbing, sports, and fun for the entire family await visitors.

Activity areas range from a huge main field that consists of nearly a 100 connected trampolines to trampoline-based basketball courts and dodgeball fields, a foam pit and air cushions designed purely for diving, as well as a spectacular ninja course (see photo).

“JUMP House” is one of the leading providers of trampoline facilities in Germany. The first location opened in Hamburg four years ago. The Waterfront Bremen complex marks the company’s seventh location.

In areas located on the third and fourth upper floors as well as on a themed roof terrace, they can indulge in first-class training, wellness, and body care under one roof and in a very special atmosphere.

The Astor Film Lounge, which accommodates five auditoriums with state-of-the-art cinema technology, will be one of the most popular entertainment services at My Zeil and will attract customers with its exceptional services and convenience.
