Air is the most important ingredient of any beach ball, scuba tank, or make-believe turkey dinner. Discover some of air’s entertaining uses with today’s Groupon to JJ Jump and JJ Extreme, with locations in Clackamas and Vancouver. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get four open-jump passes for children up to 3 years old (up to a $20 value).
- For $16, you get four open-jump passes for children between 3 years old and 15 years old (up to a $32 value).
Kids bound around polychromatic inflatables in either of JJ Jump’s expansive playlands, and zip swings and rock walls induce adrenaline surges at the Clackamas offshoot’s JJ Extreme. Kids have free rein of the air-filled attractions during open-play sessions, during which they barrel through the obstacle course or don puffy sumo suits to battle each other or strike fear into the hearts of opponents at pie-eating competitions. Passes may also be redeemed at JJ Extreme, located next door to JJ Jump’s Clackamas location, where players pendulum both to and fro on the altitudinous zip swing or tackle the rubbery crags of the rock wall. Young dribblers persevere against the pull of their harnesses on the bungee basketball court, and knights and poltergeists in suits of armor compete in the jousting arena. The Clackamas facility also houses Our World Creative Play Center, which provides blocks, wooden trains, and other toys for younger visitors.
Check the calendars for upcoming Vancouver and Clackamas open-play dates, with special events such as 2 Much Fun open play, where caperers gain admission to both JJ Jump and JJ Extreme. Prospective jumpers must have a waiver filled out by their parent and at least three references from backyard trampolines before boarding the bouncers.
Inside both of JJ Jump's two locations lies 7,000 to 12,000 square feet of inflatable challenges and bounce-based entertainment for children. The jousting arena settles sibling rivalries in a civilized and laugh-filled fashion, and giant slides send little ones safely toward the ground. But there's more to JJ Jump than jumping: each facility also boasts a creative play zone that is ripe with construction toys and a stage where children can let their imaginations run wild.
From time to time, the Clackamas facility morphs into JJ Extreme, where a kid wearing a harness can be suspended from the ceiling by a rope to swing back and forth under neon lights. Harnesses also come in handy for a slightly more competitive activity, during which youngsters zip past one another, running toward a basketball hoop and hoping to make a shot before a bungee cord pulls them each backward across a soft, inflatable mat.
