JUMP ON IN Gives Kids A Place to Spring into Action

(Boonton, NJ) – January 27, 2009 – What do you get when you combine 11-thousand square feet of space and throw in eight slides, bounce houses, and trampolines? Jump on In, the latest indoor playground that’s bounced into Boonton.

While Jump on In is for kids, it was created in part for parents looking for a place to host birthday parties for larger numbers of children. Mountain Lakes resident Laura Fitzgerald says the concept meets an unmet need in the community.

“Today it’s not uncommon for parents to invite all the children in the class,” says Fitzgerald. “This allows parents to have parties of up to 25 children with absolutely no hassle. We take care of everything… including hauling the presents to the car, ordering the pizza so it’s piping hot when it’s time to eat. Parents, your job is to relax!”

All parties are private at Jump on In. At least two “referees” are assigned to each party to make sure all children are being watched and are using the equipment safely. While there are no age requirements, Fitzgerald says kids from ages 3-14 tend to have the most fun. Safety and cleanliness are the top priorities and training for Jump on In is rigorous.
Kids will be busy at the facility because there’s a lot to do. The first “gym” in Boonton, NJ has 5 gigantic jumping contraptions including trampoline basketball, a 22 foot giant slide and an inflatable obstacle course. After about 45 minutes of jumping around, they’re ready for a change of scenery and are escorted to a second gym with other equipment, including an inflatable maze, a huge roundhouse that is great for bouncing basketball, soccer or dodge ball.

By this time the kids have worked up an appetite so they are escorted into the party room where it’s time to eat. Jump on In provides pizza for parties that request it. Parents can bring in their own cake and snacks to customize the party as they choose.

Parties average around $300 and include up to 25 kids for two hours. Parents are required to sign waivers before participating. Printable party invitations are available at which include the waivers with the invitation to facilitate the paperwork for parents.
