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 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. 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 one to the ceiling by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.

The caretakers at The Learning Experience emphasize education first, employing a proven set of teaching methods such as Fun with Phonics and their own L.E.A.P. program, designed to meet children at their current level of development. Infants as young as 6 weeks are nestled in their own individual cribs and allowed to roam an exploration-inspiring playzone, and those just a few months older may get the chance to learn sign language. Older kids move at their own pace through more advanced classes that cover early reading skills, basic math concepts, and dance and movement sessions. Besides preparing preschoolers for kindergarten with accelerated literacy and critical thinking, the curriculum includes introductions to modern technology, from digital cameras to DVD players.
Educational explorations take place in an environment designed for safety: brightly colored walls with rounded corners help prevent accidents in the halls, and Child Safe 'N Secure key tags can reveal the location of any student at the push of a button. Outside, kids frolic on playgrounds rooted in a cushy rubberized surface, and indoors is a "Make-Believe Boulevard," where cartoon animals run retail stores and children can get a taste of what it will be like when they're all grown up and can reach the top of the fire station.
Inside a spacious 6,000-square-foot facility, Christine Fox, a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, and her staff provide training, daytime and overnight boarding, and grooming services for dogs of all shapes and sizes. Daycare and overnight-boarding services provide canines with ample indoor play areas and individual walks, during which a trainer reinforces basic commands, such as “come,” “heel," and “stop leaving the toilet seat up.” Multiple exercise sessions also teach socialization techniques, wearing pups out for tranquil rides home. The facility also houses separate areas for small and senior dogs to ensure places for them to play safely.
During group training sessions, canines learn basic etiquette, such as to come when called and how not to pull on the leash. Dogs can also go on to learn more advanced commands, graduating to agility training or acting classes to teach them how to obey commands in busy film studios. Individual training sessions offer one-on-one attention, either in the home or at the facility.
