PILLOW fights are not only for the bedroom.
Some 100 people at the Jump Street Trampoline Park in Petaling Jaya came armed with their own pillows in conjunction with International Pillow Fight Day.
The “fight” which took place on a flat platform at 8pm lasted a good 20 minutes, with a majority giving up in the first 10 minutes.
“It is very tiring. I bought this pillow specially for this event thinking that it was going to tear but I guess I am not that strong,“ said Saw Chui Ann who came with her friend after reading about the event on Facebook.
“It was a lot of fun with everyone attacking each other. I would definitely come back if there is another event next year,” she said.
Leila Amini and Ali Sobhanmanesh from Iran were also spotted having fun with their pillows.
“The pillow fight was so much fun and a good workout,” she said, adding that they had also participated in the Holi festival recently.
Lee Wei Wern got hit from all sides.
“I thought only my group of friends would be fighting with each other, but everyone started attacking me from all sides,” she said.
Jump Street marketing head Marie-Magali Falcoz said every first Saturday of the month, they hold a themed “Saturday Jump Fever Party” in the evening helmed by a DJ.
“Originally it was supposed to be a pyjama party, but then I found out it fell on International Pillow Fight Day,
“We referred to a list of guidelines on organising a pillow fight on the website but held it indoors because of the weather.”
Jump Street sales director Azlan A. Aziz said they also organised games after the pillow fight to keep the fun going.
“We had dodgeball, slam dunk and long throw played using pillows instead of balls.
“The winner also went home with pillows. We like to keep things fresh and be more than a trampoline park, but also a good place to chill with friends,” he said.
Jump Street Trampoline Park in Petaling Jaya is an urban playground for adults and children.
Located, in a 3,438sqm converted warehouse, it features hundreds of interconnected trampolines from the floor right up the walls and multiple jumping attractions.
