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 $40, you get a 10-jump punch card at Pump It Up: The Inflatable Party Zone (an $80 value).
Pump It Up specializes in indoor, inflatable arenas for children. During 10 fun-filled jump sessions, children can leap around gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Pump It Up’s giant indoor air arenas are climate controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by a well-trained staff and local police. Parents bounce for free, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow a neighbor’s kid or win one by collecting soda tops.
From expert installation and anchoring to insurance coverage and rule enforcement, Pump It Up holds itself to strict safety standards. Since jumping is an exciting method for burning calories, a lively lark through Pump It Up’s inflatable fun houses will cause youthful energy to melt off faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. The punch card can be used at one time for a legion of leaping lizards or spread out over several bounce-filled blocks.
Although reviews are still growing for Pump It Up's Anchorage location, Austin Chronicle readers voted it Best Party Place for kids in 2009. DallasChild named Pump It Up the Best Place to Take Tots, and Phoenix New Times named it Best Place for Kids to Bounce in 2010.
- The helpful and friendly staff work to create the party of your kid's dreams. Pizza, goodie bags, and inflatables out the wazoo. Hallelujah! – Austin Chronicle
Pump It Up
Air-filled structures within Pump It Up's indoor play-haven offer hours of safe bouncing enjoyment for youngsters two and older. Kids leap around in bounce houses during drop-in pop-in playtime sessions during weekdays, where they interact with other bouncers while getting exercise. An obstacle course adds challenges to their enjoyment, and inflatable slides bring kids back down to earth to start games anew. Pump It Up's space can be rented out for private events, such as birthdays, grade-school graduations, and a kid's first steps on the moon. Not just for children, Pump it Up also hosts teambuilding corporate events for adults and hosts family play times where parents are encouraged to jump along with kids.
