These pictures show what a trampoline park in Derby will look like when it reopens following a devastating fire.
Oxygen Freejumping, in Pride Park, was hit by an arson attack in June.
The Derwent Parade venue is undergoing a refurbishment and is due to reopen on Sunday, December 17.

The refurbishment is almost complete
Several new features, including a Ninja Warrior-style course, dodgeball and basketball courts, a wipe-out wheel, a performance gymnastics area and a soft play area have all been installed as part of the centre’s redesign.
Chief executive David Stalker shared these pictures with the Derby Telegraph.

He said: “The park will bigger and better, with more activities, games and new concepts than any other park in the country.”
The fire, which also affected DW Fitness, Powerleague Derby Soccerdome and a massage business, caused more than £1m damage.

Several new features are to be introduced
The blaze took hold in the early hours of Friday, June 9 – exactly a year to the day the venue opened. An anniversary disco which was due to be held on the Friday night was cancelled as a result.
All staff – with the exception of management – were made redundant following the fire. The firm is looking to hire up to 60 people and hope many employees will return.
Meanwhile, Derbyshire police is still appealing for anyone with information on the incident to get in touch. The case appeared on BBC’s Crimewatch in a bid to identify the person or those responsible but, so far, nobody has come forward.
