Treating walls like trampolines generally leads to cartoonish, person-shaped holes. Today's Groupon allows kids to bounce off the walls in the controlled environment. For $20, you get a five-bounce pass to BounceU, the inflatable indoor playground (up to a $40 value). Choose one of the following location options to live vicariously through a kangaroo:
- Pennsylvania locations: Horsham, Langhorne, Oaks, and Exton
- New Jersey locations: Blackwood, Lakewood, and Cherry Hill
The passes can be redeemed during any regularly scheduled play period, including preschool play dates for kids seven and under (parents bounce free), family bounce night with the option to order pizza and drinks (parents bounce free), cosmic bounce with black lights and strobes for glow-in-the dark bobbing, and all-ages open bounce sessions, which may include music, flubber shoes, games, or snacks. Sensory bounces without music or extra noise are also available for kids with special needs. Not all locations have every type of bounce, so take a look at the calendars for the following locations to find a time and session that works best for you: Horsham, Langhorne, Blackwood, Lakewood, and Cherry Hill. Call the Oaks and Exton locations for a schedule.
BounceU allows your kids to hurl themselves around with abandon, protected by soft, padded, and well-cleaned surfaces and a watchful, attentive staff. A coliseum of good times, BounceU features more tubes, slides, ladders, basketball hoops, and springy foam fields than an American Gladiator obstacle course, except here the participants trade their spandex for pink princess dresses.
This Groupon is not valid for Mad Science days, and one pass per child may be used per weekly session. All children must be restroom independent; ages 4–12 only.

Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne. In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.
