Inside both of JJ Jump's two locations lies 7,000 to 12,000 square feet of inflatable challenges and bounce-based entertainment for children. The jousting arena settles sibling rivalries in a civilized and laugh-filled fashion, and giant slides send little ones safely toward the ground. But there's more to JJ Jump than jumping: each facility also boasts a creative play zone that is ripe with construction toys and a stage where children can let their imaginations run wild.

From time to time, the Clackamas facility morphs into JJ Extreme, where a kid wearing a harness can be suspended from the ceiling by a rope to swing back and forth under neon lights. Harnesses also come in handy for a slightly more competitive activity, during which youngsters zip past one another, running toward a basketball hoop and hoping to make a shot before a bungee cord pulls them each backward across a soft, inflatable mat.

Presented by Courthouse Fitness, Salem Health and Salem Electric, Tri4Kids?s youth triathlon accommodates different ages and fitness levels with twin courses?one long and one shorter. To cater to youngster?s smaller proportions, neither course reaches full-blown triathlon scale. However, both still challenge kids to swim, run and bike vigorously, unlike lax triathlons that only require participants to shower, walk, and hold a bike upright.
