Be Hoppy! 6 Places to Jump and Bounce in Central Iowa

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? Check out one of these 6 places to jump and bounce in central Iowa.
