Like many college dance parties, inflatable party zones are filled with giddy kids and lingering adults who've realized they're too old to unremittingly partake. Pass along the joys of a sprightly youth with today's Groupon: for $12, you get three open-play passes at Leaping Lizards indoor playground in Olathe (a $24 value).
Founded by the mother of four bounce-happy bairns, Leaping Lizards rockets socked striplings high above an inflatable party village of kid-friendly bounce-pads. Spring-ready squires can gallantly back flip behind miniature princesses before gracefully crowning them in a castle colonized by an assembly of Disney nobility. Meanwhile, an afternoon spent bounding across Batman's fortress will inspire heroic offspring to unleash excess energy before clumsily storming a skull-and-crossbone-emblazoned pirate ship. Toddlers under the age of two are unable to bounce with bigger brothers and sisters, so Leaping Lizards has a special area set aside to keep tiny tots preoccupied.
Leaping Lizards' law log requires parents keep an eye on junior aeronauts and sends reckless kids to an inflatable prison where they'll be forced to write a gritty memoir detailing halcyon bounces. Leaping Lizards boasts a cordial staff that ensures all inflatables are cleaned weekly. Adults and children under two get in free with paid admission, and today's Groupon is valid for any of the open-play sessions, which can be found on Leaping Lizard's online schedule.
