Today, the incredible Freejumpers of London (Acton), Southampton, Wigan, Manchester and Derby attempted to set a new Guinness World record!
It’s our first birthday, and to celebrate the most special day so far in Little O’s life, we pulled out all the stops and attempted to set a new Guiness World record for the most people jumping on trampolines at the same time across multiple locations!
Each of our trampoline parks were full to bursting with excited Freejumpers from across the country. All of them were there for one reason: to go down in history, and set the bounciest record the world has ever seen!
The Freejumpers took their places on the trampolines and awaited the whistle. You could feel the excitement in the air as every jumper in each of our 5 trampoline parks prepared to jump non-stop for a full 5 minutes!
As the whistle blew to signify the start a collective roar went up in the room and the jumpers were off! Since 5 minutes is actually quite a long time to be continually bouncing, our equally excited stewards and Court Monitors were chanting and encouraging the jumpers to keep bouncing with all the energy they had!
When the final 10 second countdown began the noise level grew until all that could be heard in the trampoline park were screams of fun! Check out the videos below from 2 of the parks to see this amazing Guinness World record attempt in action! Do you think we did enough to set the new record?

Since this will be an official trampolining world record, we have to wait a little while for it to be verified and we can announce that Oxygen Freejumping is a Guinness World Record holder! The total number bouncing at the same time was a whopping 385 JUMPERS! So keep your fingers and Oxygen-socked toes crossed that we’ve done enough to set the record – we think that our amazing Freejumpers have done it!
