And what Bounce Below, a spectacular new fun thing at the Llechwedd Slate Caverns in Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales, resembles more than anything else is a video game come to life. Imagine a vast underground chamber, lit in vibrant colours, where you bounce through the Earth’s bowels on an enormous trampoline. It’s a virtual-reality thrill – except it is an actual physical experience.
