Be Hoppy! – 4 Places to Jump and Bounce in Central Iowa

Sharing is caring!


Places to Jump & Bounce

Have you heard the song Jump Around by the Imagination Movers?  That song describes my house during the day, lots of jumping, having fun and moving around.  Kids seem to have an endless source of energy they can tap into to be bouncing off the walls at all times.  Luckily in our house we have a big enough basement where we can fit a bounce house.  Let me tell you, this has been one of the best investments I have made in a long time.  The kids will jump, slide and play for hours in there getting exercise and letting some of that crazy energy out.  But what if you don’t have room for your own bounce house?  Where do you go to help get the jumps out?

Make sure to check out our event calendar for special events, open play times & more!
