Bounce Milwaukee

Like many other parents living in a cold-weather climate, I've visited my fair share of indoor playground/play arenas/arcades during the long stretches of winter when it seems like the structural integrity of the house can't handle another weekend of kids bouncing off the walls. Varying in cleanliness, noisiness, and chaoticness (new word), each venue has its pros and cons.

But after visiting Bounce Milwaukee for the first time this past weekend, the bar for the overall bounce house experience has now been raised a bit higher.To begin, Bounce Milwaukee has three sizable bounce attractions: an Inflatable Sports Arena, a Moebius Combo, and Adrenaline Zone. The interior surfaces were surprisingly clean and well maintained. (The opposite of my childhood experience inside the greasy ball pit at the McDonalds PlayPlace.)BarAreaUpstairs you will find an open mezzanine with seats looking down on the bounce surfaces. For adults, you'll find a bar with bottles of wine and beer on tap. Do you see the arcade game controllers and joy sticks build into the counter top? Patrons can also play vintage arcade games in this area. extrasAnother perk for parents is the adults-only massage chair located between the bounce attractions. Sitting in the chair is free (You would pay at least $4 to do this at the mall or airport—ha!). Bounce Milwaukee also has an indoor rock climbing wall, indoor lazer tag, air hockey table, and vintage games. The games are all set to free mode, so you don't need to worry about tokens or tickets. Fist bump for that business decision!

GamesPerhaps the biggest "feel good" moment at Bounce Milwaukee was with regards to the food. Nothing is re-heated, microwaved, or deep fried and the owners work hard to source and serve local food. As an example, Sprecher Brewing Company created a soda fountain for six of their gourmet sodas just for this specific venue. FoodDuring our visit, two birthday parties were in full swing and I didn't feel overwhelmed or overcrowded. Plenty of staff were available to assist with rock climbing, lazer tag, and food service. My kids played for a solid two hours and complained of hunger before boredom. Burning off SteamAdmission prices to Bounce Milwaukee vary based on the day of the week, how long you plan to stay, and whether you want unlimited access or standalone activities. The Family Fun Special includes four everything admissions, a sixteen inch pizza with unlimited toppings, four large Sprecher sodas, and four cookies for $119 (a good deal if you were staying for a while and need to eat anyway).

Thanks to Bounce Milwaukee for providing us with complimentary admissions for the purposes of this review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own.
