Pump It Up – Fun for Parties and Anytime!



As a mom of two rambunctious boys, I am in constant search of party venues, in a last ditch effort to keep my house free of a bunch of crazed three to seven year-olds.

My search ended when I discovered the perfect place, right around the corner from my house. Pump It Up knows how to party and how to keep kids moving and having fun! And more importantly (for parents anyway), they know how to plan for the party, handling every detail in the weeks leading up to the big day. From the moment of booking, the staff left me feeling confident that the event would go off without a hitch. First, an email arrived from my awesome party coordinator, with all of my party details outlined, along with links to design my invitations, select extras for the party, directions, and more. The same coordinator called me the week before to firm up the plans and get a final head count, and then the big day arrived.

Pump It Up recently introduced three new theme parties: Superhero Training Camp, Pirate Quest, and the Glow Party. They all sounded fun, but I opted for the Glow Party, anxious to relive my black-light poster days. There are two things that really set Pump It Up apart from other party spots: It is completely private, meaning if you’re having a party there, your group is the only one in your arena and in your private party room. The other awesome feature is the dual arenas: it’s like two parties for the price of one!  Our gang started off in Arena A, complete with the obstacle course, slides, bounces, and more, and bounced to their hearts content, with two Pump It Up party assistants keeping a watchful eye over the action. Then the kids were corralled and outfitted with their glow bracelets and necklaces. The doors were opened, and in we walked to a glowing Arena B! The rug glowed, our white shirts and socks glowed, and the slide looked like it was under water! The disco lights were whirling overhead, and we all had a blast, bouncing around to the beat of the music!










When we finished up on the inflatables and moved into the party room, everything was all taken care of for us….ahhhhhhh! The festive room was adorned with balloons, our cake was on display, and Pump It Up’s all-new goodie bags were lined up. When I say they handle it all, I really mean they handle it ALL! The pizza, the drinks, the ice cream cups, you name it, they take care of it! For the busy mom on the go, this is truly the way to go!

I really can’t say enough about Pump It Up’s super-clean facility, fun atmosphere, and friendly staff.  Thank you for making memories we’ll never forget!
