Boing! or bust

Well actually Boing! WAS a bust.

The final stop for Shannon and Kelly's birthday was to be Boing! trampoline in Gatineau. We had made a reservation a week prior for 10 people to use their facility between 9:00 and 10:00. Unfortunately, dinner went a little late and we got lost on the way so didn't end up getting to the Boing! facility until about 9:10. Yes, a whole 10 minutes late. No big deal right? Well you'd be wrong. The employee working at Boing! decided to shut down the whole facility even though their posted hours were until 10:00 pm. To make matters even more absurd the employee knew we were there but refused to show her face. Oh but it gets better. Next up her "boyfriend?" shows up supposedly to pick her up but then leaves since we are asking him questions about why the place isn't open. Another 20 minutes goes by as we try to figure out what to do next and the "boyfriend" shows up again and this time sneaks the employee out of the building and speeds off. Needless to say we all had a good laugh about how absurd the whole situation was and have no idea how anyone would try running a business like this.

I'm sure this story isn't over yet so check back for updates. In the meantime I would recommend never paying to go to Boing! in Gatineau. There are much better places you can spend your money.
