A playground can be the site of a first-birthday party, a first transatlantic paper-airplane flight, and a first doctoral dissertation on the geothermal impact of teeter-totters. Make a scientific breakthrough with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a five-session open-bounce pass to BounceU (a $40 value). This Groupon is valid at BounceU's locations in Clarksburg and Rockville. Days and times for open-bounce sessions vary by location.
BounceU lets tots take many small steps for kidkind in an inflatable playground, in which they can bounce in a safe, secure environment. Youngsters can carom around the squishily stocked stadium on oxygen-filled energy expenders such as slides, basketball courts, boxing rings, and hamster wheels. The five-bounce pass is valid toward any combination of open-bounce sessions, including Preschool Playdate, Family Bounce Night, and All-Ages Open Bounce.
The attentive BounceU staff monitors the rebounding playground at all times, ensuring that the facilities are safe, clean, and cootie-free. Adults are welcome to join youngsters in the springy play area, but all bouncers must wear socks and kid disguises to play.
Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne. In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.
