Children who aren’t allowed to jump and bounce seek higher elevations in riskier ways, such as giraffe-rustling and pole-vaulting across busy highways. Placate your progeny’s urge for altitude with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get five jump passes to Pump It Up of Shawnee Mission, good for pop-in playtimes and family jump times (up to a $40 value). This Groupon can be used for one child or divvied up among multiple children.
Pump It Up specializes in indoor, inflatable arenas for children. During five fun-filled, pop-in visits, 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 during pop-in playtimes, 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. Before diving into the sturdy, buoyant structures, guests must watch a video imparting safety precautions to keep jumping fun and free of injuries or pogo-stick-using kangaroos. 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.
