Jump!Zone?s indoor playgrounds envelop kids aged 2?12 in an inflatable world filled with challenging obstacle courses, fun slides, and cardio-boosting bounce houses. While navigating the plush courses under the watchful eyes of air-filled dinosaurs and superheroes, kids burn off extra energy and participate in activities that may help develop motor skills. Jump!Zone?s energetic staff supervises all play as kids climb on pirate ships and trampoline inside princess castles. Specific inflatables may vary by location but often include towering bounce houses shaped like fire trucks or octopi as well as party rooms, games, pizza, soda, and other festive fare. The bouncy center also hosts birthday parties, fundraisers, and special events.
Husband-and-wife photography team Bert and Cindy Behnke would be formidable competitors—if they didn't run Behnke Fine Portraiture together. Both earned master of photography and photographic craftsman degrees from the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), along with numerous accolades. Cindy has been the Illinois and PPA Photographer of the Year, and Bert won the PPA's International Award and served as the organization's president. They strut their shutter-snapping skills at their studio in Mokena, tucked amid 2 acres of wooded areas that give clients a scenic alternative to in-studio shoots.
