The new facility is set to create up to 20 full and part-time jobs
A brand new ninja warrior-inspired assault course is set to open at The Boulevard in Banbridge, bringing a sense of adventure to family fitness.
Ninja Boxx will celebrate its opening weekend on 19 January, occupying a 7265 sq ft unit at The Boulevard. The new adventure centre will be the first of its kind in the area and is expected to create up to 20 new jobs.
The significant £200,000 investment will welcome the latest evolution of family fitness to the shopping centre, encouraging children and adults of all ages to reap the benefits of exercise whilst challenging budding ninjas. 25 unique obstacle-style challenges will put balance, coordination, speed and agility to the test in a stimulating and safe environment.
Ninja Boxx is the sister venture of the popular Jump Boxx, located on the Waringsford Road, Banbridge. Jump Boxx has welcomed more than 70,000 visitors since opening in 2016 and directors Scott McMillan, Lee Thompson and Robyn McClimond hope for similar success with their new enterprise at The Boulevard. Scott McMillan commented:
“Ninja Boxx is set to be a fantastic addition to our ever-growing portfolio, and we are very proud to be able to open at The Boulevard in Banbridge. The success of Jump Boxx proves the demand for an indoor family facility like this, and the fact that both adults and children can enjoy the facilities together is certain to make it a popular destination for birthday parties and family days out.”
Chris Nelmes, centre manager at The Boulevard also commented:
“We are very pleased to welcome Ninja Boxx to The Boulevard, expanding our entertainment offering and bringing something completely new to the centre. Ninja Boxx will further enhance our readily expanding portfolio, which saw considerable growth in 2018 and is set to go from strength to strength with further announcements, both in retail and food and beverage planned for 2019.”
Ninja Boxx is suitable for children from 6 years of age through to adults and will also include a café and waiting area.
This exciting addition to The Boulevard is part of an overall £7m investment at The Boulevard, which has seen a series of other recent store openings including Guess, Adidas, Sketchers, Kurt Geiger, Asics, Jack Wills and The Beauty Outlet. All these brands join existing outlet retailers including Nike, Timberland, Calvin Klein, LK Bennett, Paul Costelloe and Jaeger, with more food outlets and retailers due to be announced this year.
