Pump It Up specializes in indoor, inflatable arenas for children. During three fun-filled pop-in visits, children can leap around gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Pump It Up’s giant indoor air arenas are climate-controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by a well-trained staff and local police. Parents bounce for free during pop-in and family jump time, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow a neighbor’s kid or win one by collecting soda tops.

What special training do you or your staff have?
Our staff is small, but we are very knowledgeable and passionate about what we do. Our game selection rotates fairly often and we maintain our pinball machines quite frequently. If you are looking for a game to play in the arcade, ask us; we may be able to bring it in one day.
What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?
We expect our customers to have a great inexpensive experience for the whole family. Our passion is our hobby, and we are opening our hobby to everyone who is not able to find/play these machines anywhere as they are becoming increasingly more expensive and difficult to locate.
Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?
I have been going to arcades since 1980, and have always enjoyed the social atmosphere?something that needs to be brought back in this day and age of constant social media. Face-to-face interaction is very underrated, and each tournament and offline setup allows people to play the games the way they were intended to be played (in an arcade, in person vs. another human being) as well as meet new people that share the same passion for games around Middle Tennessee.
