Bounce and activity park to be created at former Dreams shop in Westwood

Elev8 is expected to open in October

A bounce park with slides, an assault course and climbing walls will be opened at the former Dreams store in Westwood Retail Park.

Elev8, which will also include interactive features, will have two parks, one for under 4s, with less challenging features, and the main arena suitable for over 4s.

Events such as party nights will be held on Friday and Saturday nights with music and atmospheric lighting. There will also be toddler mornings, after school sessions and SEN sessions during term time.

Pricing will start at £9.50 for Open Bounce sessions, safety socks must be purchased from Elev8 but are reusable. Toddler sessions will be £5 for 2 hours

Entry is free for anyone not participating. People will be able to grab a coffee and a bite to eat in the on-site café.

The bounce park is the first phase of the project with plans for new features to be added.

The unit will be transformed into the activity site

A Thanet team is heading up the project. Work is due to start on the unit this week with Elev8 expected to open in early October.

It is understood neighbouring site -formerly Laura Ashley furnishings – has also been taken on and will be converted to a gym.
