Jumpstreet Indoor Trampoline Park (Cedar Park)
Update: Angela in the comments (see below) said that kids under 7, with someone 12 years and up who has paid admission, may enter the otherwise restricted areas. Had I known this, I would have happily paid admission to let my kids play everywhere, but I still would love it if there were an hour for kids just under 7 to play wherever they like.
Since my daughter found a flyer at Carter’s, we’ve awaited the news of Jumpstreet’s grand opening. We came on day 2, and I wish Jumpstreet had been more clear on their website (or Facebook status) that this was a soft opening with two areas still unfinished. It’s still impressive though for the 8 years and older crowd, with enough attractions to keep them entertained for a couple of hours easily if the kids don’t poop out first from exhaustion.
My kids (ages 6 and 3) met their cousin (age 4) at Jumpstreet. While I stood in line to register kid names, birthdays, and sign the e-waiver forms, my nephew managed to face plant from running around so excitedly that he took a decent knock to the mouth on the carpeted floor. Poor kid didn’t even get to play before getting whisked off to the dentist, and the Jumpstreet staff were great. They refunded the entrance fee for him. (Actually, I think the staff are friendly in general.) You will want to allocate a good 5-10 minutes for check-in at the first visit.
Admission is $8 per child under 7 years old. (The Plano location says children 3 and under are only $4, but I was charged $8 for my three year old.) Admission will grant all day play, but if you leave, you have to pay admission again. Outside food is not allowed so you can’t pack a lunch, and they only sell snacks (candy, chips, crackers, and drinks). If you think your kids can tolerate more than two hours of jumping, come after lunch. Admission for ages 8 and up varies, depending on the day ($10/2 hours on Tuesday and Thursdays, $8/first hour+$6/additional hours on Monday, Wednesday with weekend/holiday pricing at $12/first hour+$6/additional hour). It’s definitely more expensive than the average inflatable bounce house place.
The website also mentions that jump sessions begin on the hour and half hour so you’ll want to plan accordingly.
Because my kids are under 7 years, they were limited to the Earthquake area. Jumpstreet isn’t fully finished; they were without the inflatable bounce houses, said to arrive in the next day or so. Kids under 7 are limited to just the three trampoline lanes in the Earthquake area. There was a Jumpstreet attendant positioned at all the areas, and they do check the stickers or wrist bands to keep the under 7 crowd out of everywhere else but the Earthquake zone. My six year old was perfectly happy to stay there as she made friends with the attendant who was sweet to play and entertain her and several other kids.
My three year old jumped for one hour before tiring out and becoming restless. He was royally upset that he wasn’t allowed anywhere else to play. If he were allowed, I don’t think I could have dragged him out of the place. Even if the inflatables were in place, I think he would be upset that he wasn’t allowed to play anywhere else. I wish that Jumpstreet would allow one hour for kids under 7 to play in any of the courts.
For those over 8 years old, this place is GREAT. There are two dodge ball courts, one area called “Jumpstreet” open courts of wavy and straight trampoline lanes.
There is also a mechanical bull and a large foam pit. The foam pit is what did it for my three year old. He’s been to Extreme Fun, Hoppin’ House, and gymnastics class where anyone is allowed in the foam pit, and he just didn’t get why he wasn’t allowed in the foam pit.
There’s a large slide that is currently just MDF board that needs some slick surface put on it to make it operable, and the Jumpstreet staff told me likely it would be completed next week. This too is only for the over 8 crowd.
There is one coin-operated tea cup ride that today was “out of order.” There’s a four-person air hockey table that is also coin-operated, and that was almost always in use.
The jumpy areas are all enclosed behind clear walls so parents can lounge at several of the tables and seats and still keep an eye on the kids. I did like that there were Jumpstreet employees attending to all the areas so I felt like they kept an eye on kids who certainly can become unruly. I wasn’t able to pick up a wifi signal so I’m not sure if there will be wifi or not here. If you bring your kids here and don’t have a data plan, bring something to read or do.
My daughter actually liked the place so much that she’s already telling me (10 months in advance) that she wants to host her birthday party here. The party space is one large, half-walled space with many, many tables. That place will get crowded if they have multiple parties booked.
For now, if you have a child under 8, you might hold off a couple of weeks until the inflatables are there, as I don’t think your $8 admission will get you very far unless your child will be content to play in one area. We will be back again though in a couple of weeks once everything is put together, but I’ll just be bringing my six year old who can understand why she’s not allowed yet in the “big kids” areas.
Jumpstreet — if you see my review, please make one hour of play for just kids under seven to use everything you have there…well, maybe not the mechanical bull. I’d hate to see my kid go flying off that thing, but everything else, I promise I’ll sign a waiver to say that my kids are playing at their own risk!
The place is new so it’s clean, well air-conditioned which will do a lot in cutting down on the stinky, sweaty kids smell in the future. No shoes are allowed on the trampoline courts, and socks weren’t required.
