Family Fun at Jump City KC: A Recap from our iFamilyKC Kids Club Event

Jump City KC

The trusty groundhog saw his shadow (which means 6 more weeks of winter, right?), but I am so ready for spring and warmer weather! In Kansas City we always seem to get one last blast of winter weather right before spring, so I’m thinking it’s not over yet.  Luckily there are some GREAT indoor places in KC and surrounding areas that you can take the kids to burn off some of that crazy energy. We had a chance to check out a super fun place where kids can do just that at the latest iFamilyKC Kids Club event, Jump City.

What do they offer?

Jump City is located in Belton, a quick 20 minute drive from the downtown metro area.  This place is HUGE! It has tons of bounce houses, giant inflatable slides, obstacle courses, bounce houses for the littles, gameroom, and concession stand serving pizza and snacks. The staff was super nice and accommodating. My kids had an absolute blast. We started out in the toddler area, which has some smaller bounce houses (perfect for toddlers).  And soon I was chasing my kids over and up and down and through the inflatable paradise.  We played games in the game room that has several affordable and fun interactive options.  It was nice to take a little break there and at the concession stand, since my kids were beet red.

What about parties?

Jump City is a fantastic birthday party destination! They offer several different affordable, fun-filled options for everyone’s budget! They do all the set-up and clean up and have a dedicated party room available.

How can I save on admission?

Daily admission starts at $8 a person and parents always play free! Check out jumpcitykc.com for more information! And be sure to check out the February 2018 issue of iFamilyKC (available online 24/7 at www.iFamilyKC.com) for $2 off admission.

Aerial Fitness 

Having good pyhsical health is such an important thing in life, and teaching our kids ways to keep our bodies healthy is an important life skill that will set them up for success later in life. The aerial fitness classes for kids that are offered at Learning2Fly aim to help kids maintain healthy, strong bodies by engaging them in fun workouts that the kids really enjoy. My own six year old made a comment as she was climbing the silk ropes at the studio, “this is hard,” she said. The instructors response was amazing and was a valuable life lesson in and of itself. She said, “It IS hard but YOU can do it!”.

The kids truly learn that they are creative beings, and what that means for their lives and our community, during art sessions at the studio.

Family Fun: Ninja Warrior Course Comes to KC!

Have you heard?! The BRAND NEW Ninja Warrior Course is NOW open at Sky Zone in Lee’s Summit! We sent Connie, from our iFamilyKC Mom Squad team, to check it out and she’s sharing her thoughts with you today on the blog. Take a look…

Family Fun: Ninja Warrior Course Comes to KC!

Am I the only one who watches American Ninja Warrior and thinks “I could so totally do that?”  Or at least “I would so love to try to do that?”  Well, good news—your ninja dreams are about to come true. Sky Zone Lee’s Summit has just remodeled and added an all new Ninja Warrior section to their already amazing facility.  I was psyched to try it out, and so were my kids.

Family Fun in KC

My family and I attended Warrior Weekend earlier this month.  My kids were literally jumping up and down as soon as they saw all the cool new attractions.  Not to mention, they got to meet an American Ninja Warrior contestant “in real life MOM!!!”   The Classy Ninja was hanging out and helping participants through the course and completing it himself to the delight and awe of the crowd.

The Obstacle Course

The first obstacle we attempted was the Ninja Warrior course, which included some hanging barrels, ropes, swings and all sorts of assorted upper body challenges.  It was a little tough for my 5 & 7 year old, but they enjoyed attempting it.  The staff was fantastic about helping them though and encouraging them to keep going.  For older kids and adults, it was challenging and fun.  The Classy Ninja basically made the course look like a cake walk, but that’s why he’s awesome, right?  The course allows you to jump through/past some of the more difficult obstacles if you have the legs for it, giving adults and older children an advantage.  Upper body is not my strength, so I pretty much gave myself an A for effort on this one.

The Warped Wall

Next, my son wanted to attempt the Warped Wall.  There are three different heights at Sky Zone’s new warped wall, and if you can make it to the top, you get to push a fun button like the one on the show and some fog comes out, making you feel like the Ultimate Champion.  Or at least that’s what people told me who made it to the top.  I’m going to blame my bum knee for this one, because I can, but in reality, I clearly haven’t done enough ninja training to master this one yet.  But it was really fun to attempt it and watching my son do a little happy dance when he made it up made it all worthwhile.  The fireman’s pole you get to slide down once you make it is definitely an added bonus.

The Rock Wall

I knew better than to even attempt Free Climb, the rock climbing wall, but it looked like a fun challenge.  There was plenty of staff there to help get people safely on and off the wall and my 7-year-old made it about half way up before he decided he wanted to move on.

The Jousting Pit

Our final stop was the foam pit that houses both the Sky Joust and the Sky Ladder.  This was by far my kids’ favorite spot.  My 5 year old was determined to master the Sky Ladder by crawling, and she never made it past the second rung.  It’s a rope ladder suspended at varying heights across a foam pit.  This was another one I did not attempt, but looked like what I imagine it must be like to try to wrestle a pig.

There was lots of trying to balance and hold yourself upright, while the ladder constantly shifts underneath you.  My kid couldn’t get enough.  My 7 year old’s eyes lit up when he saw the jousting.  Probably because I rarely let him play with swords at home.  You balance on a Bosu Ball on top of a pillar and try to knock your opponents off into the foam.  Let me just say, this was my favorite.  Something about being up so tall and getting to knock people around with a jousting stick made my day.  And my son giggled so hard he snorted, so that was a win for me.

You have to go check out the new attractions.  They add some much needed variety to an already highly entertaining venue.  My kids did get worn out after about 40 minutes in the “Ninja Zone” as they called it and spent the last bit of our hour jumping on the trampolines and playing dodgeball, but again, isn’t that the point?  They were sweaty and tired by the time we left.  They slept well that night and thanked me profusely for taking them.
