Before the discovery of the flotation properties of helium, people filled party balloons with the breath of filibustering politicians or the dreams of penguins. Expedite your child's imaginary playground with today's Groupon for Ultimate Play Zone in either Millersville or Cockeysville. Choose from two options.
For $17, you get a Five-Open-Play admission card (a $35 value). Children 2 and younger are admitted free with an accompanying paying child.
For $130, you get an Ultimate weekday party (up to a $265 value).
Ultimate Play Zone's eagle-eyed supervisors chaperone sock-clad kids through a lair of inflatable playgrounds and plunderable wonder stations that include a pirate ship and fairy-tale castle. Foster social development and the ability to elude scorned imaginary friends by loosing your little frolickers on a sanitary, inflatable obstacle course. Kids climb and jump on giant air-filled slides, distended sea serpents, and a wooden pirate ship complete with skull-and-crossbones flag, barred windows, and a candid photograph of Blackbeard happily blowing into a pinwheel. Times and ages for open play vary by location Friday–Sunday.
Monday through Friday, hosts of the Ultimate weekday party ($249–$265) may summon up to 25 invitees for a postmeridian party. (While this party option is usually only available beginning at or after 3 p.m., Groupon holders can host an Ultimate party anytime during Ultimate Play Zone's business hours.) Guests can roll, climb, and bounce safely for up to one hour of inflatable arena time, with 40 minutes being reserved for lounging in a private, professionally decorated, postmodern merrymaking room. The party packages include setup and cleanup, party supplies, and access to a surround-sound stereo system that pumps bass as thunderously as a lion singing karaoke into a megaphone. An alert team of supervisors keeps watch over the proceedings to ensure each guest's safety.
Children 2 and younger and adults 18+ do not count toward the 25-friend total.
