ROCKIN’ JUMP

Ashlie S. from Watsonville on yelp said “Went here for the first time today and brought 5 kids ages 2 1/2-16 and everyone had a blast!! Amber the manager, roped off a special space for the little ones so they wouldn’t get trampled, which as a mom, I totally appreciated! The other Staff members were friendly and on top of all safety issues. You can tell it is a well run
gym. My 7 year old loved the foam pits, which he got to flip into. It was even fun for the adults. Highly recommend this place for an afternoon of fun. Amber told us that on Fridays after 9 PM they have disco lights and a DJ and are open until midnight! We will definitely be doing future birthday parties here. Reasonably priced and so fun. :)”
