For Bouncing & Gaming: Odyssey Fun World

Perfect for kids ages two and older who love to have loads and loads of fun, this place strikes a balance between indoor and outdoor fun.

Between the jumps, carnival rides, four-story exploration adventure structure and video games, there’s something for everyone. Party packages include pizza, drinks, decorations, paper goods, 90 minutes in a private room, and your own party coordinator so all you have to do is remember to bring along the cake and the camera. Party packages start at $150 for 10 participants -- and don’t forget to check the website for party discounts.
