Jumpin' Beans - Wake Forest

Kids need to burn some of that post-Christmas energy? Here's a great suggestion from Katie:

H really loves a bounce house and, after a few days of being sick and stuck inside recently, we all needed a field trip so DH and I decided to take H to try out Jumpin’ Beans at The Factory in Wake Forest.

Jumpin’ Beans isn’t huge, but H had lots of fun on the two large inflatables and the play area with slides. Don’t be thrown off when you first walk in - it looks like there is only one large inflatable play area, but tucked away to the right is a small wooden structure with a toddler sized slide, foam blocks, and H’s favorite: a steering wheel! There is also a second room with another large inflatable play area. I admit that I was a little nervous about the lack of dedicated toddler space, but the staff encourage parents to join their younger children in the inflatables. H had a fabulous time! Even with other children (up to age 10) in the same play area, he was never too crowded.

Jumpin' Beans offers a number of other amenities. Both rooms with inflatables have plenty of tables and chairs within easy view of the play areas, making it a perfect spot for Moms and Dads with older children to enjoy coffee or a snack from the snack bar (you can view the menu on their website linked below), or connect to the internet using the free wifi.  It would be a great space for a birthday party.

I know I mentioned that they don’t have a dedicated toddler area. While we had a good experience with the mix of ages, we will also check out their dedicated toddler time on Wednesday mornings. They open up early (9.30am) with exclusive toddler bounce time until 11:00am. And if your child loves crafts, they have craft time on Monday and Tuesdays from 10am-2pm!

Jumpin’ Beans might not be the largest bounce house in the area, but it is a clean, bright, fun space for a morning, afternoon, or whole day of bouncing fun. That’s right, your $8 admission fee is good for the whole day - you can leave and come back as many times as you want/need to.
