Trampolines at a centre in Melbourne’s southwest appear to have been slashed from underneath in a “malicious” act of sabotage during school holidays.

Staff at the Airodrome Trampoline Park in Altona North said up to 17 of their ‘Big Green’ trampolines have had holes cut in them at the edges, reports Yahoo 7.

The centre was forced to limit the number of people going in and have cordoned off the equipment.

3AW Mornings producer Michael Hilder told the station he took his daughter to the park on Thursday and was told someone had broken in.

“They’ve found a way to climb underneath the trampolines and cut the mats, but where the cuts are, they’ve been designed not to be seen, at the edges,” he said.

Staff believe someone crawled under the mats overnight on Tuesday and cut them from underneath.

The cuts were concealed at the edges of the mats and there were fears the mats could have collapsed under jumping children.

  • How horrendous. Someone has gone out if their way to try and hurt children for gods sake. It surely is becoming a sad, sick world


  • Maybe they do safety checks on them each day. They would need to be cleaned on a regular basis too.


  • I wonder if they already caught the person who did this !


  • What a dreadful thing to do. Luckily it was found out before anyone was seriously hurt.


  • Oh my goodness, who would do this??
    People are insane! I hope they catch them!


  • Why do people do dumb things like this?!


  • People do stupid and dangerous things amazingly frequently.


  • How did they find them before someone went through and got hurt if it was done so nobody would notice? Insurance job? Mats were wearing out and this was the cheapest way to get new ones?


  • What kind of evil creature deliberately does something like that?! So glad no children were hurt.

    • It really is quite sad and it perplexes me too! I do not understand the mindset of some people.


  • Such a malicious and dreadful thing to do – why on earth do people do this?


  • That’s terrible. I hope they catch whoever is responsible


  • To think this out and put it into action is a sick and criminal mind at work !!


  • Honestly low life to do this to kids


  • Why are all these attacks always targeted at hurting our children


  • Wow, sounds like whoever it was knew exactly what they were doing and how to cause injury
