I will NEVER allow my 5 year old son to go to another Jump Zone party. We brought him to a friend's 6th birthday party last Saturday, and we were told it was safe and allowable to drop him off and not stay. My husband and I ran errands and returned to get him 1 and 1/2 hour later - and NOBODY could find him. The staff member who was responsible for tracking children and rounding up all members of the party just "Zoned" out. Guess what? My son wasnít the only lost child for this particular party - there was another unaccounted for child as well. We eventually found him roaming in the bounce house - he had fallen, gotten hurt - and there was nobody to pay attention or help him. He was frightened because he did not recognize anyone in the room. Both children were left in the bounce house, and when they were located, they were dehydrated and had missed lunch and cake for the party. The sponsors of the party were appalled. For the price they paid, they expected help facilitating the event. They invited over 30 children from their sonís class, and did not know every child, so they did not realize two children were missing. They relied on JumpZone to take their responsibilities seriously and track the children in the party. I am appalled that we had to sign an extensive waiver of liability, yet the owners of the facility don't seem to take their responsibility to safeguard children very seriously.

As I could understand your anger but as a parent seeing the amount of kids in the facility - you should have spoken to the party parents to let them know you were dropping off your child. He is only 5 years old - YOU left him alone for almost 2 hours. I have been to many parties at Jump!Zone and the staff are always making sure the kids are playing safe. The waiver clearly states that you are responsible for your child.

im thinking of starting my own "jump zone" any suggestions from past patrons on how to satisfy guests.
I actually looked into the Jump Zone franchise opportunity a few months ago. I spoke with a guy named Chris Nutting a couple of times and he was very helpful. He did not try to "sell" me. I was provided an information kit by email and he was very helpful and gave me tips on how to properly research a franchise. The area I was interested in was already sold (my loss). I tried to start the process with Pump It Up and they did not respond. Thought about doing it on my own but after researching the industry I realized it was not a business I wanted to enter alone without the support of a company that has the experience.

Jump zone is great for kids. It keeps them active rather then playing video games. Chuck E Cheese is cheesy compared to jump zone. It is always clean (Clarksville, T.N.)

So, let me get this straight.... You took your kid to a party, with parents you didn't know (or didn't know you), violated the rules by dropping off the child (clearly stated on the website) after signing the waiver that places legal responsibility squarely on your shoulders, and ignored every NORMAL parental instinct by abandoning a 5 year-old child in an unfamiliar environment?

Someone should report YOU!!!

Hey angry mom, maybe you should have acted like a parent and stayed with your child. Since you knew that there were going to be 30 kids at the party, you should've did a parent to child ratio or maybe went over some more details of the facility. Gotten yourself acquainted with the parents that you left your child with and told them what your plans were. In all reality, were your errands that important that they couldn't wait? oh yeah and by the way, if you as a parent are nourishing your child well on a daily basis, then he or she should not have gotten dehydrated in an hour and half. So, don't blame the facility, blame yourself.

Pump it Up is 1000 times safer, cleaner, and more fun. Go to Jump Zone if you want your kid to be harased and beat up by strangers.

I was currently at Jump Zone in Mokena with my organization during an open play session one morning. There was hardly any sitting room for the younger children to rest and take a breather. I even noticed the dust on top of these inflates was disguisting, it looked like they haven't dusted in awhile, if ever. I would not want my child to be playing around dust with their allergies. It was chaotic and only 1 coordinator was watching in the large inflate room. There were way too many children in the room for only 1 coordinator to handle, I know this Jump Zone in Mokena was out of code in radios. She was not paying attention to the children falling out of Scooby Doo inflate and crying. This coordinator didn't even attend to see if these children were OK. I would look at her and see her looking down on the ground and yawning. The noise level was extremely loud with children crying everytime I turned around. I did not like how unattentive the coordinator and staff where. I will not have our Mom's club subject themselves and children to this place again, we will not be having any more play groups at this one. Very disappointed in the difference between Jump Zone in Mokena and Pump It Up in Orland. They are like two different worlds.

I myself have been to the Jump Zone in Clarksville TN (opened July of 2008) at least 4 times. I would NEVER leave my child unattended at any time. There are too many places for any child to do anything they wanted to another child, not to mention adults. I even play on the bouncers with my child. I have noticed that the "staff" are usually teenagers that care more about themselves then the well being of other children. There is usually at least one older male child that repeatedly breaks the rules and tries to "bully" the younger kids. I have had to call a parent out before on the behavior of their son (the staff did nothing).

I also just heard today, that with birthday parties, if you go one minute over your time, they charge you $30, then $8 for every minute there after!!! HELLOOO!!! Does anyone see anything wrong with that. Also, they charged $15 for $5 pizza mia's. This is not mentioned on the website...I just looked. I was planning on having my son's birthday party there (60 people), but not anymore!!!!!

Most of these party centers run on a schedule, so if you are not leaving your room on time, another childs birthday party might not start on time. I think the fee is to act as more of an incentive to move people out of the room who otherwise could care less about the next party waiting to get in.

Now I guess they could also sell their pizza at cost, however they wouldn't be in business very long if they gave away everything for free and let parties run longer than they are supposed to... That $2 large coke you buy at McD's costs them 10 cents...

...oh my god, how the "heck" would you leave your five year old alone in a place like this...you must be crazy; you should be reported!!!!

...I guess running your errands were much more important than keeping your child supervised by YOU!!!...This is NOT a DAYCARE DROP-OFF CENTER...

Jump zone is awesome you would love to take your kids there! This is my opinion about pump it up it has only 4 inflatables and is not very fun.On the other hand jump zone is fun and has more than 4 inflatables! Also it is VERY clean!

I run a summer camp that does a travel group. We have been to both Jump Zone and Pump it Up. While I found both to be clean and well managed, Jump Zone had more bouncy toy attractions for the kids to play on, as well as being cheaper.

Both places will tire out a group of kids.... I highly recommend Jump Zone to replace a parents' prozac.
