Pump It Up's indoor inflatable arenas launch socked striplings into the air with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Staffers supervise fun-filled visits, during which adult counterparts leap around with their kids through gargantuan bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an inflated obstacle course.
The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These 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. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Occasionally, the staffers switch off the lights, arming the roomful of players with glow sticks and bracelets as they navigate the air-cushioned obstaclescape. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their charges will stay safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the floor and ceiling by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.

Dinner delicacies, meanwhile, can be preceded by an antipasto of butternut squash ravioli ($9.50), or beef carpaccio, sliced paper thin and served with aged parmesan and a toasted baguette ($9.50). The accommodating staff will cheerfully explain the differences between penne and ziti and demonstrate which noodle can be interlocked into better action figures while you cleanse your physical and metaphorical palate with shrimp linguine ($17) or veal saltimbocca ($24).
