So what is Pump-It-Up anyway? It’s basically a big warehouse with giant, inflatable play structures – bouncing areas, slides, and obstacle courses. The structures (at both venues) are sturdy enough for adults to freely participate. This type of play is good for adults – it makes you feel like a kid again, and your kids will love the freedom and physicality of the play.
