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 $37, you get a Family Fun pass, which is good for 10 visits, at Jungle Jim’s Playland in Midvale (a $74.69 value with tax included). Pint-sized adventure seekers can thrilldown on Jungle Jim’s seven indoor Playland rides while guardians hover nearby. With flying jets, spinning tops, and a soft play area, Jungle Jim’s Playland supplies endless entertainment to the hyperactive and regularly active alike. The Jungle Café serves fresh-baked pizzas, snacks, and soda pitchers. There are no time limits for each wristband, as they are good for the entire day. Parents may also ride free with their kids.
Jungle Jim's Playland
The whirring carnival attractions inside Jungle Jim's Playland never pack up and leave town. Instead, the year-round kiddie complex keeps its stable of rides completely indoors at its climate-controlled facility. Proud parents look on or join the action for free as kids 11 and younger enjoy jungle patrol cars, a ground-level roller coaster, and a traditional carousel. In all, seven rides and a multilevel jungle gym provide all the fun of an outdoor carnival without having to endure sticky, summer heat and long carnie lectures about 17th-century Italian operas. Kids split up their bumper car sessions with Skee-Ball and other arcade games or sit at picnic tables and nosh on a house-made pizza from The Jungle Cafe concession stand.
