Bounce, Climb & Slide: Pump It Up

This is nothing like the bounce house from your childhood. Pump It Up -- which hosts a special Memorial Day Play -- exceeds expectations with two arenas full of inflatable fun. In Arena A, kids can fly down the one-lane 20-foot slide, race through the obstacle course and play projection-based games with Motion Mania. Things get even more creative in Arena B with bouncy basketball & soccer, rock climbing and a two-lane 20-foot slide.

Held on May 26, 10 a.m.-noon & 12:15 p.m.-2:15 p.m. Cost is $12/child. 821 W. Eastman St., Lincoln Park (312-664-7867 or pumpitupparty.com).
