Stomping Grounds Playland is many things at once. Part play center, coffee bar, and restaurant, its target demographic spans generations, all of whom should find plenty to do within its 2,000-square-foot facility. A play structure delights kids with obstacles and colorful tunnels, and an expanded toddler area keeps the youngest visitors occupied. To fuel this fun, the onsite Brewster's Café serves up kid favorites such as hot dogs and mac and cheese.
However, the café has even more options for adults—not to mention a dining area with free WiFi. Baristas pour cappuccino, organic chai tea, and specialty espresso drinks such as white-chocolate mochas. These caffeinated treats complement an array of signature sandwiches and salads. Stomping Grounds Playland also caters to parents with comprehensive party packages; party planners take care of everything, including food, activities, and all the paperwork required to receive a birthday wish.
Jump & Joy amps up the action at any kid's party with inflatable bounce houses and slides. Partygoers leap around inside bounce houses printed with popular characters from movies, tv, and Newsweek, and kids can also splash down thrilling slides. All inflatables have been designed with extensive safety features, such as ramps and screen mesh, and they're disinfected after every rental. Staff also creates themed packages that not only include a bounce-house rental, but also a party attendant, sweet treats, music, and decorations.
The intoxicating scent of fresh popcorn; the sweet sensation of a snow cone hitting your tongue; the rush of adrenaline as you spring from the cushy foundation of a bounce house. Kandiland Jumpers supplies all these feelings in the form of party rentals. Snow-cone machines, bounce houses, and popcorn machines are among the whimsical party extras, which the staff will transport to your home and set up before the bash.

Musical samplings include pieces by George Gershwin and The Glen Miller Band, contemporary pieces from the musical Hairspray, and more. Revel in the thrum and musical undulations in the beautiful expanse of Jones Hall, a grandly lit building with an acoustically supreme interior and a ceiling of 800 moveable hexagons.
