Physicists have determined that the best way to subdue wall-bouncing photons is to let them loose until they need a nap. Apply the latest scientific findings to your kid’s playtime with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get six one-hour open-jump admissions at Jump-N-Party (a $36 value).
Hosting kids’ exercise and entertainment within massive multicolor plastic cathedrals, Jump-N-Party’s facilities accommodate children up to age 12. High jumpers can challenge friends to races down an 18-foot slide, craft cocoons in an obstacle course, or combine their strengths for the mythical triple bounce. Spread your Groupon over six months with weekday open-jump sessions of leaping, stumbling, and making merriment across an inflatable indoor labyrinth. Open jump occurs Monday evenings from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and every Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Although it may exercise its tyranny over the rest of the world, gravity’s authority slips away at Jump-N-Party. Instead of being tugged downward, children aged 12 and younger bounce high in the air, popcorning across a pair of obstacle courses and ricocheting around a castle-themed bounce house. An inflatable slide invites bodies to whoosh down its 18-foot incline, and two toddler areas welcome wee ones not yet old enough to fix a car transmission. In addition to open-jump sessions, the indoor recreation center hosts parties, fueling celebrants with lemonade and enhancing their revelry with add-ons such as pizza, cupcakes, and balloons.
