More often than not, treating walls like trampolines leads to nothing but a cartoonish person-shaped hole. Today’s Groupon enables kids of all ages to bounce off the walls in the controlled environment at Bounce in Meridian. For $15, you get five passes for this inflatable emporium (up to a $32.50 value). The five admissions can be split amongst multiple guests or visits.
Featured on local Fox 12 News, Bounce offers physical activities for families with its bounce houses and obstacle courses. The anti-gravity facility encourages kids and parents to get active, eschewing video games, which render players stationary and more likely to become mothball carriers. Once inside the hyperactive interior, visitors can sample from a variety of springy stunts, including the Velcro wall, slide, and bounce castle. An adult bounce house and kiddie play area keep things organized, but all-out malarkey ensues when parents and kids duke it out with Sumo wrestling suits, cartoon-proportion boxing gloves, and American Gladiator–style jousting. A concessions stand with café seating offers snacks to replenish calories, and free WiFi is available to settle heated debates over the etymology of fracas.
