Here is a step-by-step guide on how to build a trampoline in Minecraft.
You will need slime blocks, pistons, pressure plates and Redstone to craft your very own trampoline.

Minecraft does not have an official trampoline block. However, you can create a trampoline-like effect using slime blocks. With a little bit of creativity, you can build your own trampoline. The process can be a little complicated so we decided to make it easy for you with our step-by-step guide on how to build a trampoline in Minecraft.

What do you need to build a trampoline in Minecraft?

Here are all of the materials you need to build a trampoline:

  • Slime Blocks

  • Pistons

  • Pressure Plates (optional)

  • Redstone (optional)

How to build a trampoline

Build the Frame:

  • Start by creating a platform or frame using any solid block. This will be the base of your trampoline. You can make it any size you prefer.

Place Slime Blocks:

  • On top of your platform, place slime blocks. Slime blocks have a unique property that makes entities bounce when they come into contact with them.

Add Pistons:

  • Surround the slime blocks with pistons. You can create a square or rectangular shape with pistons facing inward. Pistons will be used to retract the slime blocks, allowing players or items to bounce on them.

Redstone (Optional):

  • If you want to automate the trampoline by toggling its bounce effect, you can use redstone components. Connect the pistons to a redstone circuit with either a lever, pressure plate, or button to control when the trampoline is active.

  • Lever: Place a lever on any block adjacent to the pistons. When the lever is turned on, the pistons will retract, and the trampoline effect will be activated.

  • Pressure Plate: You can use a pressure plate as a trigger. Place the pressure plate on the platform, and when a player steps on it, the pistons will retract.

  • Button: Similar to a pressure plate, a button can be placed on a block, and when pressed, it will activate the trampoline effect.


  • Test your trampoline by jumping onto the slime block area. You should experience a bouncing effect due to the slime blocks retracting and extending.

Remember that slime blocks can launch entities upwards when they retract. Adjust the size and shape of your trampoline according to your preferences, and have fun experimenting with different configurations.
