Tots take off their shoes and climb all over this inflated wonderland. Supervised by the experienced staff, kids can bounce in a soft boxing ring, play indoor dodgeball or kick back with a cheesy slice of pizza at the café (just $4.99 for two slices and a drink). Arcade games such as Pac-Man keep fingers busy when tired legs need a break. And parents, don’t be shy: Adults are encouraged to jump and exercise alongside their young ones. Weekly theme parties, including Family Bounce Night, Preschool Playdate and Cosmic Bounce, add to the friendly local vibe, despite this being part of a large national chain. Reservations required. Ages 2 and up.
