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 $17, you get five bounce passes to open bounce at BounceU’s San Carlos location (a $35 value). Sprightly bouncers must wear socks to play. Adults enter for free if accompanied by a paying child, and children younger than 2 enter for free with a paying sibling.
BounceU transports kids to an inflatable, climate-controlled playground where they can bounce from side to side in a safe, secure environment. Children can practice for future careers as catapult payloads during open-bounce sessions scheduled at various times throughout the week, and the five open-bounce sessions can be split among multiple children and multiple visits. Bounce-U designates specialized play times including Preschool Playdate for mini-yous 7 and younger and Sensory Rebound, where autistic youngsters and their families can enjoy a night of safe and fun bounces. Adults are welcome to act like 8-year-olds and join vivacious youngsters in the playground, where they can mount the climbing structures while imagining they're synchronized leapers in Michael Flatley's Riverbounce.
