Very disappointed, not worth the money
Got this for my Kids in Christmas 2016 believing spending a grand on a quality trampoline was worth it after watching cheaper ones fall apart after a few years, particularly the padding over the springs. How wrong I turned out to be. For starters, putting this together on Christmas Eve evening was a nightmare, it is so difficult. Once up the kids loved it and got plenty of joy out of it, until today when the kids come running inside to tell me the trampoline was broken. Discovered the stitching holding the tensile spring to the mat just ripped ...apart. So only got 3 years out of a trampoline that costs 5 times as much as the el cheapo ones. As my children weigh only 18 kilos and 28 kilos, it was not due to excessive weight. And during the COVID-19 isolation period, the one reliable activity the kids has to keep them active outside in a small yard is gone. Won’t be making the same mistake twice, anyone believing price means this will give you a more durable product, read the warranty and reviews and think again.
Purchased in December 2016 at Toys R Us / Babies R Us for $999.00.
Great trampoline, bought for 3rd birthday present for my daughter, excellent service from vuly, we used the company they recommended to put it together.
Very happy with our purchase. Would highly recommend.
Purchased in July 2019.
The best trampoline on the market
This tramp is seriously the best! We purchased it about 4 months ago and I can't fault it on safety, quality or functionality! My 3 year old son had an operation last year that affected not only his movement but also his confidence, and since getting the tramp both have improved significantly!
We have already gotten so much value from the Vuly Thunder, and the sturdy construction is such that I know we will for many more years to come. I love the shade cover (which inadvertently keeps the leaves and bugs out!), its great that the weight allow...ance means that adults can safely join in the fun, the flap-entry means that there are no zips that will rust and break, and the pictures on the mat are a great addition (my son has has created lots of different games around them). We couldn't be happier with the purchase - thanks Vuly!!
Purchased in October 2018 at Vuly Play Online store for $1,100.00.

The Thunder is great for us as we Live in a Townhouse. We purchased a small and it’s perfect. Our grandkids absolutely love it. The only issue we have is that the You Tube instructions make it look like it’s a one person job and it’s not. I feel this needs to be corrected.
Fantastic for our small backyard
Two energetic boys love their new trampoline. Setup wasn’t too long but we definitely needed a few people to get the ‘springs’ in place. The basketball hoop adds fun to the setup and I’m sure it will provide a lot of joy for years to come.
We will have to take the hoop down to put the cover on to protect the trampoline so that is a shame.
Activity and Zen Zone
We purchased the Thunder for Christmas for our 4 children ranging from 14 years to 2 years. We have limited space so the small Thunder was the perfect choice. There is enough room for each of my children to have fun and enjoy outside play in a safe environment. The quality is exceptional and it is aesthetically pleasing in our yard. A big plus for me!
Apart from the great exercise benefits I have found an additional benefit by accident. My children also lie on the trampoline as a relaxation, quiet space, to look at the sky and chat to each other. It is both the Activity Zone and the Zen Zone at our place. And yes mum and dad are also using it!

Great thank you!
I left the ordering for xmas present last minute (1 week before the Christmas) and was surprised I got a call while I was trying to order online! the guy on the phone was very helpful and great and told me unfortunately it wont make it for xmas day. which I was flexible with and understanding. he added free 3 year warranty for me being easy and not expecting miracles. We received our tramp 2 days after Christmas. put it together ALMOST with no domestic fights:) it was weird that it didn't come with instructions but you had to find a video. unfo...rtunately there was a installation video on website that told you to remove all the little clips from bottom frame poles (which didn't make sense but we started doing it. but when they asked to start putting bolts and nuts in and we realised WE DIDNT receive any, then I took a executive decision to put them all back and click them in as you suppose to (it took a bit of skill to replace them again). also the video didn't specify to hook the mat to go alternating each side rather said keep going from one side. but the time you get to the other side the mat doesn't reach. so we had to unhook mat again and start again. it worked fine when you alternate the hooking going from one side to other. first I was bit worried that the SMALL tramp is quite small BUT it ended up fitting perfectly in our area and its great for kids. cover is great for the falling leaves. thank you!
Good looking and lots of fun!
This was our very first trampoline purchase so we did lots of research before settling on a Vuly Thunder. We weren't disappointed. Very quick delivery and everything arrived in good order. As we had never put a trampoline together before we it did take us quite a few hours to fully assemble but the tool provided was perfect - we will be much quicker next time! The Thunder looks very smart and classy and the quality is great. The kids love it and so do we!

Best trampoline ever!
We first tried a Vuly at a friends house and seriously, could not go back to generic tramps. It's so safe with no springs, easy to assemble and the accessories are brilliant - UV protective shade cover keeps the leaves out and cool. And of course the basketball and waterplay add ons are a bonus. We won't go back from a Vuly!

Quality product, very happy family
I chose to go with Vuly thunder over other springless trampolines as they seemed to have much better after sales service than the other brand - based on reviews I’ve read here.
My son has been asking for a trampoline for a few years now so with some help from family we were able to make this a combined Christmas and birthday present.
Postage took a little longer than expected as we purchased before the Christmas cut off date but it didn’t arrive until the 28th.
The frame was easy enough to put together by one person but a helper was...definitely needed to stretch the mat out. The tool that comes with the trampoline is really handy, but something to hook into the mat to help with the stretching would make the job a lot easier. We discovered that an even tension is required on the springs during setup. This included alternating sides, then alternating springs all the way around - eg every 4th spring then popping some off to make it every 3rd spring etc. The net and cover were quite easy to put up in comparison. The mat is very high off the ground but the rungs on the frame make it quite accessible. The only difficulty in getting into the trampoline is for tall adults as the low height of the opening in the net means that we need to awkwardly crouch while also climbing up the frame.

Great trampoline - fun for the whole family
Fantastic trampoline. Easy to purchase online and delivery was excellent. Assembly instructions online were out of date which caused a few headaches but got there in the end. Would recommend this trampoline to friends and family. My kids love it. Really great to see them off their iPads and getting exercise from something they enjoy doing
Great trampoline. Kids love it
Excellent quality trampoline. Kids spend hours on it. We only had room for the small one but still plenty of room for them to have fun. Also got the skirt, sun shade and mister which are all great additions. Turns it into a cubby house as well as a trampoline!
My kids love it!
My kids love jumping on the tramp. I was worried about the overlapping entrance but it doesn't bother them at all. It gets a good jump and the mat print details add a bit of fun. Took us about 3hrs with 2 ppl to set up...one person needs good muscles!
My son loves it
My son got this for Christmas and loves it and I really like that it is fully enclosed so he is sheltered from the sun and there is no chance of him falling off and no springs to get hurt on this is was important to me when I bought this trampoline as he is only two

Very happy with the Vuly thunder. My 3 year old kids love it and is their favorite outdoor activity. It feels safe and secure and not concerned about the kids falling out. Assembly is challenging without assistance from a couple of people. Would recommend the use of professional assembly services.
