I visited the Tempe location of Pump It Up. It's an indoor, air-conditioned play area for kids with large inflatables for bouncing, sliding and physical fun. While some of the inflatables are rather traditional, others have challenges and games or challenges built into them such that all kids, little ones and bigger ones (and even adults) can have a good time here. The Tempe location has some activities and games in addition to the inflatables, for those times when a short break from bouncing is in order.
On the day I visited the Tempe Pump It Up was having Pop-In Playtime and most of the guests were kids between the ages of about 3 and 8 with their mommies. They were bundles of energy, jumping, bouncing, sliding and ball playing. Some parents just watched, while others joined their children in the fun. Can older kids have a good time at Pump It Up? They certainly can and do at parties where you can customize the experience.
All locations offer parties, which is the core of the Pump It Up business. Pizza, drinks, ice cream balloons and goodie bags may be arranged. You may bring your own cake or add it to your order. Invitations and party supplies are provided. Party Experiences add another dimension. With the Party Experience a theme is added to the party and kids participate in treasure hunts, playacting or special music/lighting. Each location has different packages available, for parties between 10 and 26 people.
Some Pump It Up locations offer Field Trips for groups. Your school, camp, church group or any group of 15 or more children can arrange for a private session for between one and two hours.
All dates, times, prices and offerings are subject to change without notice.
