If kids want to someday get into a good moon college, early manipulation of gravity and bounce training will start them off on the right path. Prepare a wee one for low-gravity econ classes with today's Groupon: for $30, you get six open-play sessions at Jump!Zone (up to a $60 value). This Groupon is valid at the locations in Hillsborough and Sicklerville.
At Jump!Zone, children ages 2–12 can race through themed play areas, bounce on inflatables, and fly down giant slides. The Hillsborough hop spot bounces boys and girls in a lifelike fire truck, and an obstacle course guarded by a larger-than-life Batman proves it takes more to be a superhero than witty banter and the services of a talented tailor. Sports-minded tots can train on the basketball- or football-themed inflatables, mimicking the constantly bouncing players in all televised sports, and pintsize play-timers run around in Toddler Train adventure land. The Cars- and Incredibles-themed bouncers in Sicklerville keep budding film buffs busy, and the 28-foot-tall mountain slide pits King Kong against T-Rex in an epic battle for who has to do the dinner dishes. While the kids play, their adult counterparts can relax in the café, use Jump!Zone's free WiFi, and finally have time to recite the periodic table of elements in peace. Check the Hillsborough and Sicklerville websites for open-play hours.
Eight enormous inflatables tower above the sock-clad youngsters visiting Jump! Zone's indoor park. Decorated with kid-friendly themes such as Tweety and princesses, inflatables accommodate kids ages 2–12 as they hop in bounce houses, slip down slides, navigate obstacle courses, and hatch plans to open up 401(k) accounts. Meanwhile, a toddler play area entices children ages 2 and younger with a three inflatables, including a pirate-themed one. Along with its inflatable fun, Jump! Zone enthralls guests with an arcade and offers to host parties complete with an inflatable throne for guests of honor. Parents enjoy free admission when they enter with a child, at which point they can watch their youngsters play, surf the facility's free WiFi, or join their kids for a bite in the café.
