Pump It Up's two indoor inflatable arenas bounce socked striplings high off the ground with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Trained, amiable staffers supervise fun-filled visits where parents can leap around with their kids through gargantuan, air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Attendees can also focus their free play for special events, such as custom birthday parties and themed, private team parties. These themed soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. Both giant arenas are climate controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by the well-trained staff and local police. Supplementing its thorough rule enforcement with expert installation and anchoring, Pump It Up holds itself to strict safety standards.
Each season, more than 222,000 plants change color at The Morton Arboretum?an internationally recognized outdoor tree museum located 25 miles west of Chicago in Lisle, Ill. However, key to this arboretum's success is allowing its 4,300 taxa from around the world to bloom in environments conducive to their natural growth. With plants originating from 40 countries in the northern hemisphere, a trip through 1,700 acres is like a trip across America, China, and Europe. Throughout the year, scores of tree-focused events, activities, and services for adults, children, and professionals keep nature enthusiasts engaged and educated. In addition to 16 miles of walking trails and nine miles of roads, guests can also seek new info at the Visitor's Center, relax for a bite to eat at the Ginkgo Restaurant and Caf?, take the little ones to the four-acre Children?s Garden, get lost in the one-acre maze, or walk around the paved trail at Meadow Lake.
