The jungle would be a safer place if the chin-high grass, towering trees, and wild animals were painted on the walls and everything three-dimensional was inflatable. This dream of a danger-free nature preserve comes to life at Jump N Jungle. Voted the Best Kids’ Party Place in the Bay Area Citizen Reader's Choice Awards, the jungle lets kids leap toward the rafters on inflatable jumpers, test the bounds of gravity on giant slides, and navigate an unending labyrinth of mazes and obstacle courses. Both locations play host to weekend birthday gatherings by supplying invitations, plates and plastic cutlery, as well as staff supervision in the party room and play areas. Additionally, its childcare services include an educational curriculum for toddlers and preschoolers, as well as before school and afterschool activities for older children.
Pearland Swim Academy’s pool is equipped with a saltwater chlorine generator, which helps cut down on any eye and skin irritation students may experience. In addition, because the generator attempts to match the pH level of human tears, it allows swimmers to think about Old Yeller without anyone noticing. Heated to 90 degrees in an indoor, air-conditioned facility, the pool hosts lessons year-round in the form of two-week camps on a perpetual loop. Coaches are trained in the Pearland Swim Academy curriculum, first aid, and CPR, so they are well equipped to supervise students as they splash around during 30-minute lessons. Kids as young as 6 months can attend classes, and the academy also offers lessons for adults.
Throughout the year, more than 100 ladies compete in the South Side Roller Derby league, racing each other and racking up points during exhilarating bouts on treacherous banked tracks. Owned and operated entirely by volunteers, the league is run by people who enjoy the sport and care about sharing it with their community. In addition to a regular schedule of matchups, the ladies host roller-derby bootcamp classes replete with speed skating drills, derby-specific exercises, conditioning regimens, and hand-holding techniques in case the DJ announces a couples’ skate.
The soothing sounds of the saxophone and the call of the trumpet fill the air inside the Red Cat Jazz Caf?. Several nights a week, artists such as Brian Best and Dean James play on the caf?'s stage, which also hosts boisterous events including the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
