Inside both of JJ Jump's two locations lies 7,000 to 12,000 square feet of inflatable challenges and bounce-based entertainment for children. The jousting arena settles sibling rivalries in a civilized and laugh-filled fashion, and giant slides send little ones safely toward the ground. But there's more to JJ Jump than jumping: each facility also boasts a creative play zone that is ripe with construction toys and a stage where children can let their imaginations run wild.
From time to time, the Clackamas facility morphs into JJ Extreme, where a kid wearing a harness can be suspended from the ceiling by a rope to swing back and forth under neon lights. Harnesses also come in handy for a slightly more competitive activity, during which youngsters zip past one another, running toward a basketball hoop and hoping to make a shot before a bungee cord pulls them each backward across a soft, inflatable mat.
Blanketed in wall-to-wall trampolines, Sky High Sports delights barefoot fun-seekers with springy terrain and an exclusive court for jumpers 8 and younger. Guests can grab hold of a rope swing and fling themselves over a foam pit stuffed with blocks of spongy, body-molding material, or try some trampoline-assisted dunks on one of the basketball hoops. Pintsize aerialist posses can safely practice their synchronized Salchows on 360 degrees of trampoline walls while court supervisors watch from the sidelines and award hard-earned praise with oversize scorecards.
Sky High Sports also offers AIRobics fitness classes and monthly dodge-ball tournaments to help jumpers explore the outermost stratospheres of trampoline possibilities.
Movable walls, luminous rocks, mirrors, ramps, and unexpected dead ends. These are just a few of the obstacles players face at Ultrazone Laser Tag, a two-level, 5,000-square-foot arena that, much like a spring-break DJ?s apartment, is always flooded with black light and fog. Before separating up to 36 players into three teams and setting them loose in the arena, a game master delivers rules and moves teammates to the vesting room, where they grab lasers and flashing vests. As the beat of pulsing music hammers the arena, players stream into the field, launching beams at opponents and attempting to seize their strongholds. When players are hit they aren't eliminated from the action; a computer keeps a running tally of points throughout the mission and awards champion status to the team with the highest count after the game. The facility also includes an arcade packed with video games as well as air-hockey tables, pinball, and a snack area.

Known to some as the "Coney Island of the Northwest", Oaks Park has delighted families since 1905, making it one of the oldest continually operating amusement parks in the country. A lot has changed in the past century, but a few things remain the same. For example: guests can still hitch a ride on the hand-craved horses that adorn the park's Noah's Ark-themed carousel, which has welcomed riders since 1911. Of course, the thrills have grown by leaps and bounds since then—today guests can enjoy more than 20 rides including go carts, spinning hot air balloons, and the Looping Thunder roller coaster, which terrifies and delights with a 360-degree loop and multiple hairpin turns.
While the outdoor rides all shut down for the winter, Oaks Park indoor roller skating rink keeps the fun going year-round. In addition to hosting birthday parties, open skate sessions, and special events such as roller dance classes, the rink is also home to a vintage pipe organ that provides a festive and fitting soundtrack to the old-fashioned fun.
