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 $18, you get a bounce pass good for four admissions to open bounce at BounceU (a $43 value). Use this Groupon for vertical enjoyment at either Missouri location in St. Louis or Chesterfield. Sprightly bouncers must wear socks in order to play. Adults enter for free if accompanied by a paying child, and reservations are required.
BounceU transports kids to an inflatable, climate-controlled playground where they can bounce from side to side in a safe, secure environment. Up to two children can practice for future careers as catapult payloads during open-bounce sessions scheduled at various times throughout the week. Adults are welcome to act like 8-year-olds and join the vivacious youngsters in the playground where they can duel with the foam-shooting equipment or mount the climbing structures while imagining they're synchronized leapers in Michael Flatley's Riverbounce. The attentive BounceU staff will monitor the rebounding playground at all times, ensuring that the facilities are safe and clean.
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, 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 special events, which include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing.
