Though miniature golf's wild success led to other scaled-down sports, miniature dogsled racing was banned due to dangerously adorable puppy piles and miniature logrolling was outlawed after a crippling toothpick shortage. Practice a superior mini sport with today's Groupon: for $12, you get four passes for either one 18-hole round of indoor mini golf (a $4–$6/ticket value) or one visit for unlimited bouncing on kids' inflatables (a $3–$7/ticket value) at Jumpin' Joeys in Forsyth (up to a $28 total value).
Jumpin' Joeys beckons young foes of gravity with sundry inflatable bounces and slides as well as the Australian-themed Geko Golf course with 18 wily holes, all housed inside of a safe, air-conditioned, 12,000-square-foot funhouse. An unlimited bounce ticket sends children scrambling through inflatable castles and obstacle mazes, where an inflatable king keeps his inflatable minotaur. Geko Golf challenges the deftest of argyle-vested athletes with a course-worth of hazardous bends and thorny obstacles. Two particularly tricky prize holes reward hole-in-one victors with a stuffed animal or a suitcase stuffed with a mystery smell.
Though not included with this Groupon, Jumpin' Joeys tenders a snack bar, where deflated kids can recharge with a pre-ordered large pepperoni pizza ($8) or a 100-psi serving of cola.
An inflated pirate stands atop a castle, challenging intruders to enter his bouncy domain and scale to the top of its slide. This is just one of the air-filled attractions that delights Jumpin' Joeys' pint-size visitors. Within the indoor playland, kids can weave around inflated obstacles, crawl through tunnels, and bounce like an astronaut on the moon's rubber surface. And when they're not pretending to be kangaroos, kids (and adults) can meander over to the refreshment area for drinks, chips, and candy. They can choose to partake in open-play, parties, or special themed attractions, such as zombie zones during Halloween.
