What You'll Get
Physicists have determined that the best way to subdue wall-bouncing photons is to let them loose until they need a nap. Apply the latest scientific findings to your kid's playtime with today’s deal: for $5, you get one admission and a small fountain drink (up to an $11.50 value, depending on when you visit) for Monkey Joe's, an inflatable play center designed for children 12 years and younger located in Brentwood and Madison. Monkey Joe's has kiddie rides, arcade games, and a full concession area.
Featuring an abundance of indoor inflatable slides, jumps, and obstacle courses, Monkey Joe's caters to energetic kids and their break-desperate parents regardless of the day's forecast. Today's Groupon lets you and your youngster swing by for a bout of supervised bouncing during any of the gym's open hours, which take place every day of the week ($9 admission Monday–Thursday; $10 admission Friday–Sunday). Adults always get in for free, but are asked not to jump on the play equipment unless they are watching a child four years or younger or just won bingo. Instead, accompanying elders can relax in Monkey Joe's amenity-laden parent nook, which features comfortable seating, free wireless internet, flat-screen televisions, and computer stations that never need you to wipe their nose. Kids three years and younger can scoot confidently about the super-soft surfaces of the separate Mini Monkey Zone.
Devoted to safety, Monkey Joe's certified play equipment is always overseen by a well-trained staff that uses a video monitoring system and identity bracelets to track and study each little primate in its natural habitat. Every surface is also sanitized regularly to eliminate common germs and trespassing cooties.
Monkey Joe's was rated the Best Place to Take Kids When it's Raining by the Nashville Scene.

About Monkey Joe's
Monkey Joe's inflatable play center entertains kids aged 2–12 with a soft, yielding landscape of bouncy slides and jumps. Although you won’t find any textbooks, the indoor fun zone helps develop young minds with activities that encourage problem solving via games, climbing walls, and an obstacle course. A separate Mini Monkey Zone designed for tykes aged 3 and younger stations toddler-friendly toys and games on a soft landing area.
As children play and learn, Monkey Joe—the eponymous purple primate—circulates throughout both play areas, slapping fur-covered high-fives and teaching children to say “hello” in both gorilla and chimpanzee. Meanwhile, an adult area succors caregivers (who get in free) with flat-screen TVs and free WiFi as kids gambol across the well-lit, sanitized play areas overseen by trained staffers.
