UK's first interactive inflatable park to launch at Meadowhall
Air Haus, the UK’s first interactive inflatable park, is making its debut at Meadowhall this autumn. Designed in Holland, Air Haus will combine the very latest interactive technology with competitive games suitable for all ages.
The 15,000 sq ft site will challenge visitors to race each other across its course, scale the park’s 8m peak, and then relax under sensory lights. In addition to open periods, families with youngsters will be able to join dedicated toddler sessions, meaning families of mixed ages will be able to use and enjoy the park together. Completing the Air Haus offer is an on-site restaurant.
Air Haus will join a varied selection of popular leisure experiences in Meadowhall, including Jump Trampoline Park and Vue Cinema, complementing the line up of restaurants such as Five Guys, Nandos and Wagamama.
Jack Pendlebury, Director of Air Haus, said: “Air Haus offers a new and exciting concept for families and friends to enjoy, bringing the very best of technology and traditional games together. Meadowhall’s recent £60 million refurbishment has made it the perfect location to launch our UK debut site and we are proud to be joining such a great venue.”
Richard Crowther, Asset Manager for British Land, added: “Meadowhall has transformed over the last couple of years to offer customers an even wider range of experiences and reasons to visit. Air Haus’ selection of Meadowhall for the UK’s first interactive inflatable park highlights Meadowhall’s position as a leading retail and leisure destination in the country.”
The park will bring up to 60 new jobs to Sheffield over the next 12 months.
Air Haus is the 36th new brand to join Meadowhall following the £60 million refurbishment by British Land, joint owner of the centre. Other brands to have joined the centre include G-STAR Raw, which has just launched a new concept store at Meadowhall, Flannels, Joe Brown’s, Neal’s Yard, Nespresso and Michael Kors. The centre has also expanded its beauty services with skincare specialist Thérapie Clinic, Barber Barber and Mint nail and beauty salon.
