Parents with parties booked at the Lake-based attraction during the month of July were suddenly told last month that the parties would no longer be going ahead. Enquiries carried out by Island Echo revealed that the business was closing its doors on 23rd June with staff painting a very dire picture of the situation.
However, the owner of Isle Jump, Liam Kerr, said that the doors were closing to facilitate refurbishment works and denied it was closing for good. He told Island Echo:
“We are looking to reopen again before the end of July once works are complete, but obviously there are no confirmed dates available at present, as the duration of works are flexible”.
Now, just 4 weeks after the refurbishment claims, it has been confirmed that Isle Jump has permanently closed and the business has ceased trading.
A spokesperson has said:
“We would like to thank everyone who has supported us, and offer our sincere apologies for being unable to continue to provide the facility for use”.
Isle Jump, located at Spithead Business Centre, originally opened in December 2015 before changing ownership in 2017.
