Indoor activity for kids: Bounce Western Mass in Springfield, MA

We just tried out the "toddler time" session at Bounce in Springfield, MA. Located in the Springfield Plaza, Bounce is a trampoline park with obstacle courses, a foam pit, basketball hoops, rock walls, a mini arcade, and more. Bounce used to be a movie theater, so it is big! There were a fair number of guests yet at many times, we had an area to ourselves.

Toddler time was a good fit for our three year old and cost $10 for an hour.  You can sign a waiver online ahead of time to streamline the process.  Kidz Bop music blasted in the background. It was warm inside, so dressing in layers would be best. There is a ramp so it is stroller accessible to the "viewing deck" for the most part but I would put our infant in a carrier if we go again. They have vending machines with snacks and treats, and handed out fruit snacks on our way out. It seemed clean and there were "cubbies" for shoes and belongings. They also offer birthday parties.

The parents are allowed to jump at this time as well, which looked potentially dangerous at times.  There was only one part that had "caution, broken" on it that didn't affect our time there. We saw an employee to pay at the door, but then didn't see any other employees until we left.   Luke had a great time and was able to burn off some energy. My main critique is that we would love to go much earlier in the day rather than right before nap time, and that the other parents were running and jumping out of control, at times!
