Kids of all ages literally bounce off the walls at Bouncers, an indoor play place cushioned by an inflatable jump zone. As kids test the limits of gravity, parents can watch from a distance with concessions in hand. Bouncers makes sure its play sessions are age-appropriate by offering specialized dates for toddler jumps, ensuring that little ones don’t get trampled or traded by older kids. The multipurpose center also hosts music lessons on Wednesdays as well as charitable fundraisers for such organizations as Republic High School and the Ronald McDonald House.
As days start to shorten and the leaves start to fall, guests of all ages congregate at Campbell's Farm for an annual autumn celebration. General admission grants kids access to a petting zoo, a purple dragon bounce house, and a pumpkin-painting station, and extra amusements such as pony rides, face painting, or a challenging needle-in-a-haystack game provide enough family-friendly fun to last an entire afternoon. Children can also wind their way through the cornstalk-lined path of a 4-acre fun maze, while the bravest among them dare to navigate the labyrinth after dark, risking chance encounters with spooks around every twisting turn. After a spine-tingling tour on one of the farm's haunted hayrides, groups can also be spotted warming up around the glow of rented bonfires as they roast hot dogs or marshmallows to quell hunger pangs or construct extremely perishable birdhouses.
