Without exercise, children will never build the strength to cut their own sandwich crusts or tear geometry books in half with their bare hands. Foster childhood vigor with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get six Pop-N-Play drop-in play passes to Jump City (a $42 value).
Jump City welcomes kids to run, bound, and bounce through an expansive playscape of soft, colorful inflatables. During drop-in jump sessions, scheduled four days a week, kids hop with elevated ease in the moon bounce before entering the soft and safe climbing wall, where tiny explorers practice for future scrambles up the slide-riddled slopes of Mount Everest. Legs power an afternoon of gleeful jumps and gyrations, punctuated by breath-catching sessions along picnic-style tables. Jump City also offers pint-size slides for daredevil tots, as well as air hockey for parents looking to rebound from their poor performance at the hokey-pokey dance-off.
Jump City's indoor play land works hard to live up to its name. The vibrantly colored metropolis surrounds visitors with enough inflated slides, obstacle courses, and bounce houses to make any balloon animal regret its decision to move to the suburbs.
