*When I looked and discovered that we had not posted about Monkey Joe's yet, I was surprised. So, our Stir Crazy Mom, Abby, decided to remedy that and wrote us this post about her recent experiences.
What it is: Monkey Joe's is a fun inflatable play place for kids 12 years and younger. There are several locations available. We have taken the kids to the Cary and Raleigh locations and were pleased. If your child likes to bounce, climb, and/or slide, Monkey Joe's is a perfect place for them to play until they drop! *Don't forget socks!
What we liked: I enjoyed the fact that the employees were friendly and the place is clean.
It was easy to navigate, which is handy when your children decide to go in separate directions. They are enclosed safely in one large room. As an extra safety measure, they give each adult and child a wrist band with matching numbers. When you are ready to go home, one of the employees checks your bands to make sure they are a match and cuts them off.
One of the times we went to play, my son misplaced his cape in one of the bouncy houses-one of the employees took it upon themselves to search the entire area looking for his cape. :) There are also several benches and chairs for adults and for children if they are snacking or resting. Free high speed
wireless internet and TV's are there in case you need to get caught up on emails or want to relax while your kids are playing. I also liked that there was an inflatable house for toddlers under 3 years. Sometimes the young ones get left out (or risk getting trampled), but not here!
What we would change: I had a great experience both times, but if I had to pick something- maybe a
wider range of healthy snacks. *You are not allowed to bring food from home.
