Following almost two years of struggle, they eventually had a breakthrough when a small industrial unit became available in Cardiff. They immediately jumped at the chance, packed up the car that night and moved their lives to Cardiff. Having taken out the maximum loans on offer and poured their life savings into the setup of the business, they had put everything on the line to chase their dream.
Broke and homeless, David and Taran spent the following three months living in the industrial unit while the park was being built, determined to make Infinity a success.
In August 2015, the build was finally complete and Infinity Trampoline Park opened its doors for the first time… and what a success Infinity turned out to be. David and Taran soon realised the enormity of the challenge they had on their hands, paving the way for other trampoline parks as they set up one of the UK’s first.
With no previous business experience, the learning curve was steep. Tackling the endless challenges was tough, but they remained confident and Infinity’s first month was astronomical.
It was soon clear that the small park just couldn’t match the facilities on offer from the big budget local competition. In order to survive and armed with a new vision, David and Taran once again put every penny on the line and work began on the new and improved park just two doors down. Using the trampolines themselves every day gave David and Taran a huge advantage when designing the park and they were determined to create the best freestyle trampoline park in the country.
Fortunately the expansion was a huge success and the second park opened with a new concept rivalled by no other. The customers immediately appreciated the new improvements, and the guys finally had the park they had been dreaming of for the past three years.
The last three years has been an incredible experience and we’d like to thank everyone involved in turning this dream into a reality.
A special thanks to:
- Gary Glass (Taran’s Dad)
- Beverley Montgomery (David’s Mum)
- David Montgomery Sr. (David’s Grandfather)
- Alasdair Smith
- Transmit Start Up Loans
- Every one of our fantastic customers
Without all of you none of this would have been made possible.
Soon after the new opening, some of the Infinity team came together to create their own dream – Fluidity Freerun Academy. David and Taran worked closely with Frazer Meek and Craig Robinson, passing on the lessons they had learned and providing them with the space in the original Infinity park to open Wales’ first dedicated parkour and freerunning academy.
