Fun For Young Children
Nov. 2017
Took the grandkids here for a few hours, ages 6 and 2. We arrived just after opening as we assumed it would be too busy for us as it got later.

3 bounce houses were available for kids 3 and under. This rule is not strictly enforced as I observed older children in there. So you should observe your younger children.

Overall a good place to let little ones burn off energy. Drinks and snacks are overpriced. They also have a handful of arcade type games to earn tickets for prizes.

You do have wristbands that are to help keep children from leaving with someone they shouldn't. However, the staff was busy when we were ready to leave, the two year old was having a meltdown so we just walked out. Although a good idea, don't rely on this.

My little LOVES this place!
Jan. 2017
My daughter and nephew love this place! We last visited on a weekday and it wasn't very busy at all. The price is great for some indoor fun for you littles, especially in the winter. We are returning to this location this upcoming weekend!

Fun for little ones!

My daughter loves to go to Monkey Joes! The children and adults have numerically matching wrist bands and a staff member verifies the numbers before leaving the building!

Great place for birthday with family or friends
Oct. 2016 • Family
My son always wants to go to monkey joes for his birthday. We go every year. He thinks it's great and his sister also loves it. For kids 5-10 years old, it's a great way for them to enjoy the afternoon. However my teenager and other adults just find it loud. Adults are usually just sitting at tables while kids play. I wish they had more tables available.

My kids loved it!
Aug. 2016 • Family
Your kids will love bouncing to their hearts content at Monkey Joes. There are bounce houses specifically for kids 3 and under, which is great if you have little ones. The bounce houses for kids 3 and older are a lot of fun. Most of them have some kind of obstacle or the ability to race friends or siblings. The place was clean and there was always a member of the staff walking around. They also offer free wifi. If you plan on eating there, order the pizza beforehand or when you arrive. They have it delivered from a local pizza place and it can take 20-30 minutes.

Great Place For Kids To Run & Romp
Apr. 2016 • Family
Overall very good place for kids to run and romp. The facility is mostly clean and well kept. I would have liked to have seen the "referees" actually watching the inflatables so older, rowdier kids could have been controlled.

Bouncing Happy Grandchildren
Oct. 2015 • Family
Took the Grandkids for the bounce experience but not for food. MJs offers a wide selection of attractions, but the G-kids really just wanted to play. Wish we could capture their energy and store it up to tap into later. Ages 3 and 6 - no fear and none from us as we looked in from outside. I even timed a couple of laps for the 6 year old boy. Totally fun for him. Saw no injuries from any other kids, as well. This place does require a release, and does provide an arm band to indicate preferences. With that you can leave and return, if you want to go elsewhere for meals. Would,take any grandkids here.
