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 while breathlessly jumping with today's Groupon: for $20, you get five open-bounce passes at BounceU Pittsburgh in Warrendale (up to a $40 value).
BounceU Pittsburgh welcomes children and families into an inflatable, climate-controlled playground where they can bounce and play in a safe, secure environment. Children ages 7 and younger can practice for future careers as catapult payloads during 90-minute Preschool Playdate sessions, whereas bouncers of all ages can enjoy the music, games, and giant inflatable structures during 90-minute All-Ages Open Bounce sessions. The bounce stadiums invite families to expend excess energy during two-hour Family Bounce Nights while conquering air-filled edifices or training to headline Michael Flatley's Riverbounce. The attentive BounceU staff monitors the rebounding playground at all times, ensuring that the facilities are kept safe and clean.
Sprightly bouncers must wear socks in order to play and suits in order to make business deals. Adults and nonwalking infants enter for free, and reservations are strongly recommended due to limited space. Check out the event calendar for available open-bounce times.
Everyone must fill out a waiver to bounce. If the bouncer is younger than 18, a parent or guardian must sign the waiver.
Inflated structures 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 and slides. 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.
