It was a miserable cold, wet day and I really needed to get the kids out of the house. They were starting to bounce off the walls because they hadn’t been out much recently. We had the whole day off and decided to try somewhere new. I made out a short list of places that I was willing to take them and let the girls pick one. They took their time and looked up pictures online of each option before agreeing on Jump & Jack’s in West Chester, Ohio. West Chester is on the north side of Cincinnati.
It was fairly easy to locate with the help of GPS. I only took one wrong turn. The parking lot is large but it was mostly full when we got there. The kids were quite impressed when we walked in the door. The place is huge! I paid for the girls. Kids under 3 are $4. Kids 3 and up are $8 on weekdays and $10 on Friday nights and weekends. The girls took off their shoes and quickly went on their way. There is an area for shoes and coats at the front.
This is the perfect place to run off all that pent-up winter energy. The girls had so much fun! The main playset is multiple levels of fun. It includes tons of slides, tubes to climb through, obstacle courses, a maze, and small playrooms with one item like a balance beam or large ball.
In the center of the place, there was an interactive game screen on the floor that you play with your feet. Octavia and Isabella enjoyed this. They played with it for a while with some other kids. This is surrounded by tables which is really nice when us old people need a break. They sell drinks and food. Water was $1. They do have a water fountain as well. We didn’t eat there so I can’t tell you anything about their food.
There was a small baby/toddler area. I took Octavia in here for a while to give the big kids a break from helping her through the big play area. She had a good time playing with other kids her age. There are loads of seating and some tables in the room with this play area. It’s in a closed off area so it’s a great way to get away for the noise for a little while.
The back room is full of inflatables including a couple of bounce houses. This area is only open during certain times and they close it for parties. We were lucky enough to be there when it was open. Octavia loved the basic bounce house. It was mainly small kids on that one and the big kids were on the inflatable obstacle course.
We went to Smoothie King after we left. It was right around the corner and sounded great after all the running around. It was super yummy!
