Pump it Up Peoria

After a few miss tries with Pump it Up in Peoria, we finally made it in. My husband had tried to bring the kids on $2 Tuesday during the summer, and it was packed right at 10am, and we were invited to a few birthday parties that we weren’t able to go to because of sicknesses. But finally, we made it to open play time, which they have a lot of available times during the week!

Pump it Up is a franchise and there are other locations in the Valley as well (and I hope to visit them soon). The one in Peoria is in a industrial/warehouse area and off of Thunderbird. It wasn’t that hard to find with GPS, but easily missed from the road (Rio Vista Blvd).

When we arrived at Pump it Up, one of the staff members came to the door and opened it for us (YAY)! The main room was bright and welcoming and even quiet. Luckily we went at a time where there wasn’t too much action, but we were paying full price for our admission. Because Dimples was under two, I only paid for Munchie and Giggles.

Also a nice little snack area at the front if you needed to appease any cranky children (or bribe them to play with some sugar!).

The bathrooms were right next to the cafe with a changing area in the women’s bathroom. The only problem I saw in the bathroom was that there must have been a leak in one of the sinks and there was a bucket of dirty water (with a towel) in it catching the drips. Of course, my children being as curious as they are, had to put their hands in it.

The air conditioning was on full blast at Pump it Up, which was great for the kids because it kept them cool and jumping, but I suggest a sweatshirt for little ones who can’t jump or moms that are able to sit and talk.

There are two “Arenas” (rooms). Area A had a large slide and one “plain jump” and one obstacle course. Plus, what ended up being the thorn in my operation of getting the kids to burn some energy-video games.

You can barely see Giggles in this picture!

And the video games. I understand that maybe there will be some older kids who can’t jump or are too old for jumping so they might want to play the games, but unfortunately my kids wanted to play the games too.

In Arena “b” they had a great bucket of foam toys and puzzles for the little ones, which was much appreciated. Giggles wasn’t really feeling the jumpys, so she ended up playing with the foam puzzles with Dimples.

This was Arena “B” where there were was the “daredevil island” where the kids could jump off a platform into a soft “pillow” of blown up air. There was a staff member on top making sure the area was clear before the next child jumped (and the staff was wearing sweatshirts!).

There was also a jumpy in the corner of the room that had a big area just to jump up and down. And, there were more video games in this room as well, and picnic benches to sit on too.

I passed the birthday party room, but unfortunately did not get a chance to take a picture. It’s a basic room with four picnic tables with plastic table cloths.

One of my friends was nice enough to let me ask her a few questions about the birthday party they had there (Thank you!!). I wondered about their birthday parties because it says it is “100% private”. Well, sort of. You will be the only party/group in your Arena for forty minutes, then you go to the next Arena, and then you move on to the party room. You aren’t the only one in the building, but you are the only one in the room (it makes sense from a business standpoint).

We had a very good time at Pump it Up. It was very clean (other than the sink issue, and I’m guessing that was just a temporary issue) and the staff was very attentive. I unfortunately picked a bad time for the kids to play as it was right before nap time and they were ready for some rest.

    Vicki,

    Thank you for the awesome review. The only thing I saw that might confuse customers is that we are off of thunderbird not bell. We were once off Union hills but have since relocated to Rio Vista Park. Again thank, and I hope you and your children come back soon

      Thanks Juan! I am sorry for the mistake and it has been corrected. We had a great time and can’t wait to come back.
