Today’s adventure leads us to Joyful Jumps, 6858 Race Track Road, Bowie. MD 20715, (301) 464-2009, an inflatable bounce play area in Bowie. C.A.B. had been asking me for weeks to go back since we went for a birthday party in December. I have a secret, I wanted to go back so I could play as well. It just looks like so much fun. The day we went it was pretty empty only about six children; which meant more fun for us!
Joyful Jumps has five jump areas for big kids and adults, two for little ones, and a basketball hoop with two baskets. There are benches for parents to observe their children as well as baskets to place shoes and coats. The basketball hoop was one of my favorites. C.A.B. and I competed to see who could make the most baskets. Needless to say momma won. Yeah!!! C.A.B. did very well and we both screamed buckets as we made each basket. There is an inflatable obstacle course with a wall you can climb and others with slides.
Joyful Jumps open play is $9.44 for two hours. Socks are required to play on equipment (please call to verify prices and open play times). They do offer frequent user passes for a discounted price. Adults are allowed on the Inflatables if you weigh under 175 lbs.
This is the perfect activity to do on a cold or rainy day; it burns off all their excess energy and yours if you join in on the fun. C.A.B. was pooped after all of the running, climbing, jumping, and sliding. He was sleep in the car by the time we left the parking lot. I definitely recommend this activity if your child likes to go go go.
