We love open gym at Jump Up!


Sadly, Jump Up has closed their doors and will not be reopening.
When I first meet someone who has just moved to Yuma with small children, I say, “Welcome to Yuma.  Have you heard about Jump Up?”  It’s an indoor gymnastics facility with open gym sessions that allow your little one to run around, bounce off the walls, and shed some energy.  My kids love to jump on the trampolines, dive into the foam pit, and build forts with the blocks and mats.  It’s even more popular in the summer because it’s air conditioned and just too hot to play outside in Yuma.  Another great thing about Jump Up….it’s a great place to meet other moms!

Sessions cost $5 per child or you can buy a punch card w/ 12 sessions for $50 (good for a year).  Babies under a year are free.

Open Gym Sessions:

Monday-Friday

9:30am – 10:30am (ages 5 and under)
11:00am – 12:00pm (all ages)

Saturday (these are great because Dad can take the kids)
9:00am – 10:00am (ages 5 and under)
10:00am – 11:30am (all ages)

**parent supervision is required for all children under 4.
 
Jump Up also offers birthday parties, trampoline & tumbling classes, and a cheer class for all ages.
 
Where is Jump Up? It’s located off of Arizona Ave, turn on E. 20th St (there’s a HONDA Powersports on the corner).  Follow E. 20th down past the recycling center till the road dead ends, turn right and it will be on your left hand side.

    I have to agree with the kids getting sick from “Jump Up” issue, as it has happen to my family as well. But in defense of Jump Up, the place is REALLY Big! I can see why cleaning, safety, and supervision would be problematic. If you want a safe alternate indoor place to go with your children try Jumpoleenz. They are about 1/2 the size of Jump Up and they do work hard at keep everything clean. They are located in the Foothills at the Pioneer Shopping Center, close to Da Boyz Pizza. We go there at least once a month with our 3 & 5 year olds; it is always a fun time. And I have never had a problem with my kids getting sick from there.

    Yes, unsafe, and really, really dirty. When the new owners took over, it was nice to go. Over just the last couple years it has really deteriorated. I see no effort made to actually clean anything. Obviously that would be hard in the foam blocks, but everywhere else is filthy and ragged too.

    I got really tired of all of my children getting really sick 3 days after out trips to Jump Up. Try Jumpoleenz instead. They actually Clorox the jumpers after every session IN FRONT of you. It’s why I will keep going back.

    I think we’ll have to check it out next week then! Thanks.

    I don’t blame you for being a little traumatized over that. If a grown man almost kicked my child in the face because he just couldn’t contain himself from doing backflips, I’d probably be slow to return. I went to their website, and I noticed that they have different jump times for older kids and adults. It sounds like a great option to get out of the house during the hot summer. I think the seperate adult/child jump times are a good idea, and will ease my anxiety about having my toddler in a free-for-all gym area.

    I had a bad experience once with a grown man jumping on the trampolines (doing backflips!) and almost kicking my toddler in the face. Not the staff’s fault and I should have reported it…I haven’t been back yet,but would really like to, up until then, we loved it! Parents, please play safe around the little ones and report any issues to the staff! I’m sure they are willing to help out!
