Staff at Scotland’s largest trampoline park are jumping for joy – quite literally – after winning the national tourism organisation’s highest possible quality grading in recognition of the outstanding visitor experience they offer.
Following its first-ever assessment visit, Air Space in East Kilbride scooped VisitScotland’s top Quality Assurance award to be named a 5-star Activity Centre, taking the elite group of businesses across Scotland which can boast this superior designation to 24.
5-Star awards – which are only bestowed on businesses which achieve exceptional standards consistently across a wide range of aspects including customer care – are valuable assets which help their recipients promote the excellence of their facilities, activities and entertainment.
The VisitScotland Quality Assurance scheme, which has been developed and improved over 30 years, provides visitors with an independent, impartial and trusted guide to standards. Delivered by a dedicated team of experts who offer scheme members advice and support on how to not only meet visitor expectations but exceed them, the scheme aims to drive standards and encourage excellence whilst helping attractions and businesses reach their full potential and secure their success. That in turn delivers great results for Scotland’s tourism industry and economy.
Air Space, which is centrally located just outside East Kilbride, 8 miles from Glasgow, comprises 37,000 square feet of inter-connected trampolines – over 100 of them – providing a huge indoors spring-loaded urban playground for all ages.Visitors can freestyle jump – improvising their own moves in the main arena and launching themselves from one trampoline to the next -or try their hand at wall running and throwing themselves onto a giant air bag.They can also join in team sports on super-sprung pitches to experience them as never before with a dodgeball court, volleyball court, two basketball lanes, plus a penalty shoot out goal.
