The octagonal trampolines fit into most gardens similarly to a round trampoline. However, unlike round trampolines they do not bounce the users to the centre of the trampoline. The octagonal trampolines are more like a rectangular trampoline in that they have an even and vertical bounce wherever the user bounces.
As with all trampolines it is advisable to always have just one bouncer at a time. However if there is more than one person on at a time the incidence of collision is less on an octagonal trampoline as they are not all bounced to the centre of the trampoline.
