Scientists agree that the only reason adults have children is so they have a socially acceptable reason to visit amusement parks, eat at novelty pizza arcades, and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with today's kid-friendly Groupon: for $5, you get general admission with two ride tickets (up to a $10.99 value) at Jungle Jak's. Jungle Jak's has assembled the ultimate, interactive play place for kids 3–13, encouraging them to exercise their creative muscles with arts and crafts, indoor bumper cars, a Wii room, a toddler gym, and even a top model dress-up studio. Your novelty miniature humans can coronate their inner dancing queen in the disco room, put their vestigial koala claws to good use in the coconut climbing tree, or bombard each other with thousands of soft projectiles in the foam factory. The colorful, multi-level environment fosters an atmosphere of collaborative, educational play and masks a healthy dose of exercise with a sweet spoonful of play. Be sure kids wear socks for a clean and safe experience.
Admission is free for adults accompanying children; kids ages 1-2 can play for $3.99 each.
- Wow what a place for inside fun. Kids (2,5,11) had a blast and still talk about it. Games and activities are more for the younger kids but my 11 yr old daughter liked them. The Modeling Studio is a lot of fun. We hope to ride the bumper cars soon. The Pepperoni Pizza is delicious. Hope that they will add more toppings selection in the future. – Mia, Urbanspoon
The sight of foam balls raining from the sky would be unusual at any place but Jungle Jaks’ Foam Factory, where they’re part of a brightly decorated playground that kids aged 3 to 12 can roam to their hearts’ content. Young ones of all dispositions can find something entertaining among Jungle Jaks’ range of athletic and artistic attractions, such as a mini soccer field for pickup games and a well-stocked arts and craft studio where masterpieces can be created. Excess energy burns away in the disco area as danceable pop hits play, while the Wii room, equipped with numerous Nintendo games and a flat-screen television, keeps arms and legs engaged as players search for Princess Peach’s lost contact lens. Elsewhere, a toddler play area engages tots with age-appropriate slides and toys, and a snack bar reenergizes guests before they collide with fellow riders on indoor bumper boat and bumper car rinks. All this excitement led to Jungle Jaks' nabbing El Paso's Best of the Best award, "Where to Take the Kiddos," in 2012 and 2013.
