Sprawling across an indoor arena, Pump It Up's giant inflatables beckon kids to slide and bounce during private parties and open play. Technicolor bouncy castles send their inhabitants soaring, obstacle courses foster good-spirited competition, and ceiling-to-floor slides let sock-clad kiddies pretend they're escaping a giant gumball machine. Occasionally, Pump It Up's staff dims the lights and turns up the music to transform their facility into a glow-in-the-dark party catered to tweens and teens.
Pump It Up's staff supervises the arena during parties, giving parents time to relax and play patty-cake uninterrupted. They can also help customers design personalized parties inside a private room with options such as pizza, drinks, goodie bags, balloons, and ice cream.
