Coming home for a visit: Still the best feeling in the world

If you are wondering what the two pictures on the right side are (as was I on first glance), top is Gord Downie, the lead singer of The Tragically Hip - who has lead news coverage after a brain tumor diagnosis and who basically shut down Canada with a performance that our national broadcaster CBC pre-empted the Olympics to show - and below that, a walkie-talkie. Because that's the last gift I got my gorgeous niece and nephew.

Snapchat Day: Opening night of Bounce at Marina Mall

I swear this place is the cure for the summer grumpies. Get there! The entrance is a bit strange and hard-to-find (it's at the back upstairs, via the restaurants) and I wish they would turn the music down. But just try not to giggle when you are bouncing around on a trampoline. And it's hard work! There are also loads of other things too, besides 100 trampolines in this 3,500 sq m space, like two slack (zip) lines, a two-story freefall and a pretty zippy 40-metre slide.  There's also loads of slushie flavours if you don't mind a cold headache.

Open 10am-10pm Sunday to Wednesday and 10am-midnight on weekends. The price is Dh80 for the first session, Dh70 after you get that pair of fancy socks. Go to Bounce.ae for more.
