Before bouncy play centers were invented, children disposed of excess energy by splitting atoms and throwing light bulbs in the trash. Encourage a bouncier method of energy expenditure with today's Groupon: for $16, you get three open-jump sessions at Jump Ronkonkoma (a $32.42 value including tax).
Jump Ronkonkoma is a springy, indoor play palace bursting with inflatable bounces, slides, and games. Two gargantuan rooms each corral three to four inflatables to construct a rainbow of bouncy bigness that gives sock-sporting kids the chance to scale a rock wall, sojourn through overstuffed obstacle courses, and boomerang through the air. Classic arcade and video games, an inflatable basketball center, and trampoline speed-chess fill up the game room with more nonstop fun. Jump's open-jump schedule provides hours of dynamic ricocheting in a climate-controlled environment that's sanitized daily and where safety and beating the kangaroos in the next space race are the top priorities.
In two separate jump rooms furnished with up to four huge inflatables each, kids bound off bounce-house walls, slip down air-filled slides, and navigate energy-burning obstacle courses. When taking breaks from bouncing, they challenge each other to games of skee-ball, Dance Dance Revolution, and pinball in the game room, replete with a Wii lounge and ball blaster. Kids can invade the activity-filled fun house during open-play times or birthday parties, which include private party-room space, game tokens, and DVD slide shows of the festivities.
