Cardiff - Cave tours are pretty trippy as is, so adding a bunch of massive, psychedelically-lit trampolines into the mix seems slightly over the top.

However, this is exactly what you can expect from a visit to Llechwedd Slate Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales.

Once a dismal Victorian slate mine, Llechwedd is now home to subterranean fun world unlike anything you've ever seen before... although it somehow reminds us of that scene where Alice tumbles down the rabbit hole in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.  

The Guardian reports that the brand new Bounce Below trampoline park boasts three gargantuan trampolines, suspended across from one side of the cave to the other, and interconnected by stairways and slides, of which the largest is 18 metres long. 

It's the first facility of its kind in the world and open to both adults and children.

According to the Bounce Below website each guest is supplied with a cotton overall and safety helmet before jumping on a train that takes you into the very belly of the mountain. The activity lasts approximate one hour and is completely safe... though does not come highly recommended to those who suffer from claustrophobia.   

The opening price has been set at 15 pounds (R269 at R17.91/pound) per person, after which it will eventually be pushed up to 20 pounds (R359).
