Dawn Sansom commented: "This is great news for Northampton. Wishing them every success," and Louise Hartje put: "What a great idea can’t wait to see it in action!"

Many people on Facebook tagged their friends to suggest going to the centre together once it opens, expected to be in mid-February.

While Rachael Taylor said it would be great to have a trampoline park close to her family as they do not drive.

"Can't wait to take my children here maybe even book a birthday party as well," she added.

Visitors to the Gravity Active Entertainment centre will be able to play darts as well as bowling, mini-golf and five-a-side football
