WALES, Britain (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The world's first underground trampoline opened Friday, in an enormous cave in Wales.

It's roughly the size of two basketball courts in a cavern 200 feet deep.

There are three massive trampolines, suspended from stone walls.

Safety helmets and overalls are required, and 9-foot high mesh walls stop people from bouncing out.

The tallest trampoline is 180 feet off the floor.

"It's scary at first, but then it's really cool," said jumper Cian Williams.

It took workers five months to clear out 50 tons of stone to create the space, where it costs $34 per person to bounce.

The park is part of an investment plan for the area, that still suffers from high unemployment since the mines in the region shut down.
