A TRAMPOLINE park has confirmed it is 'open as usual' after rumours surfaced it was shutting down.

Information was posted on social media that Flip Out Wellington was closing - but it was regarding a site on the other side of the world.

Flip Out Somerset, which is based at Chelston, is NOT closing and has no plans to close in the near future.

The site facing difficulty is Flip Out Wellington, based in New Zealand.

A spokesman for Flip Out Somerset said: "It has come to our attention that there is some confusion regarding the closure of Flip Out Wellington (New Zealand) and ourselves, Flip Out Somerset.

"We would like to confirm that we are NOT closing down; we are open as usual and would be delighted to see you all for much more flippin' fun over the coming years.

"Did you know we now have virtual reality and soft play now, too?

"While Flip Out is a global brand and we send our best to the team at Flip Out Wellington (New Zealand), we want to clarify that our store is called Flip Out Somerset and we are open as usual.

"Thank you to those of you who have showed concern, we hope to see you in the park very soon."
