The existence of gravity, unlike the existence of superheroes, imaginary friends, and permanent records, is never fully accepted by children. Encourage erroneous theories with today's Groupon: for $12, you get three bounce–and-play sessions at Jumping Jax in Overland Park (up to a $24 value). Regular admission for children under 2 is already $4, so this Groupon is best purchased for children 2 and over.
Jumping Jax's safe, indoor playground provides a vibrant, tactilely stimulating atmosphere where bouncing young souls can romp and stomp to their hearts’ content. During open-play sessions, held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, the facility spreads its inflatable arms and welcomes energy bundles, who can whiz down pulley-suspended ziplines from miniature towers, scamper down inflatable slides, and scale air-filled climbing walls in preparation for future careers as Spider-Man. Adults, meanwhile, can relax in the parents’ lounge and watch TV, surf the web with free WiFi, sip on free coffee and soda, and devise ways to build a home office inside a bouncy castle. Socks are required for play.
A swarm of sock-footed kids climb up inflatable steps to reach the top of a rainbow-colored slide, sliding down in an orderly fashion before bouncing off and running back for another go. At Jumping Jax, children can safely expend energy with abandon, playing in air-filled structures that cushion them when they fall or work together to stage a production of the Icarus myth. The play arena sports a multitude of attractions including a bounce house with a Twister-board floor and two low-hanging ziplines.
