Thanks to the colorful, sparkling mural that's spray-painted on the front windows of Bounce USA, kids are likely to get excited as soon as you pull in the parking lot. Once inside, they can scale numerous bounce houses and inflatable slides during open play or private birthday parties. The play center is open to kids of all ages, and also has arcade games, board games, and an Xbox.

Concessions help revelers refuel with nachos, hot dogs, and snow cones.
