I have been to Jump n Joey's quite a lot and been to two Birthday parties there. So, there are several things that I based my rating on. If the rating was based on fun alone, I would give it a 5. My kids, ages 4 and 6, always love going and usually have a great time. You pay to get in and do all the bouncy houses and slides. They have a lot of really cool ones, and there is one for younger kids. Plan on paying a lot more if you plan on doing the games, too. There are a ton of arcade type games to play, but it gets quite expensive. I have to say, the prizes are really terrible, basically you end up spending $40 dollars or so in game tokens to end up with a prize that you could get at the dollar store. So, most of the time, if I happen to win a lot of tickets on a game (we have gotten lucky a few times and won 500 or so), I will put half of them in my purse to bring next time so the kids can get a better prize at the end. The place is very chaotic, especially when it is busy. One thing I don't like about this place is that there are never enough workers to do what needs to be done. If your game runs out of tickets (and they do a lot), it will usually take a long time to find someone and for them to have time to come and help. It also takes forever at the prize counter. Usually just one person working at the food station. The review below talks about rude workers, and I have to agree that there are a couple people that work there who are kind of rude, just don't seem to like children or anybody for that matter. But, there have been some of the younger ones who are very friendly, just overworked. The worst thing about this place is that there is no one watching over the bounce houses. When it gets busy, it can get pretty rough and rowdy. The last time I went, some bigger kids got in one with some smaller kids and two or three, including my son, got hurt because the bigger kids jumped on them. Without a worker there, it's hard, because I tried to confront one of the boys that my son said threw him down inside, and his Grandparents (I think) just said it wasn't him that he "wouldn't hurt a fly". Also, bigger kids get in the toddler area and there is no one to enforce the rule of toddlers only. Overall, I will continue going there, but I strongly advise that anyone try and go when it is not busy (i.e. weekdays, early in the day, etc.) The experience is much better.
I'm giving Jump-n-Joeys's 5 stars because that's what my kids want me too, and because we don't have a Chucky e Cheese's! It's a great place for a birthday party if you have small kids. They have pretty good pizza, a lot of things to play on, a lots of games to play. If you have small kids, you should give it a try.
Best design antennae in Indiana. Store that is like an eclectic cultural museum where you can buy the displays for a reasonable price.
