Florida may get beautiful weather most of the year through, but the rainy season can really put a damper on things. You don't have to let the rain keep you in the house though, there are plenty of awesome indoor things to do, like this awesome new inflatable theme park at Jumpin' Fun Inflata Park.
Formerly a trampoline park called Jumpin' Fun Sports, now a massive 15,000 square foot mega-inflatable playground that will unleash your inner kid. There's so much to do, where do you even start? You'll definitely want to grab your friends for this one.
Race your BFFs up bouncy ladders, belly flop headfirst down slides, do some sick flips while testing your inflatable ninja skills in the Ninja Course, swing the wrecking ball, or fly into space at the Moon Bounce.
If you want to battle your friends and sharpen your dodging skills in a game of Extreme Bouncy Dodgeball, go head to head trying to knock each other off of the Battle Beam or go on an epic quest in the Team Quest Challenge.
Not only can you bounce, but you can also take to the sky on the 30-foot-high zip rail track that will fly you over the entire bounce park. They even have a "Birthday Throne" if you decide to book yourself an adults-only party here; everyone needs to be a kid again now and then.
According to the Herald Tribune, Jumpin' Fun will be obtaining their beer & wine license on Oct. 1. so you can grab a drink after your bounce time in a lounge area with couches and football on the tubes.
Prices are pretty affordable too. An hour and a half of bounce time will only run you $18.95 per person, but if you want an extra hour it's only $4 more. The zip rail pass will run you $23.95 for an hour and a half, or $28.95 for two and a half hours.
You can find this inflatable wonderland in Sarasota at the Lakewood Ranch Corporate Park; it's not far from the tropical jungle escape feel at the Sarasota Jungle Gardens if you wanted to make it a whole day in town, topped off with secluded beachside tiki vibes, cocktails, and bites at O'Leary's Tiki Bar — a couple of true hidden gems.
An overview of the new inflatable playground's details can be seen below.
