Review: Jump for Joy at Kangaroo Kids Inflatable Party Center

By Maria Wen Adcock

Kids bouncing off the walls? Bring them to Kangaroo Kids in Deer Park to expend that extra energy. Kangaroo Kids offers one of the best values for indoor parties and open play activities.

Located near Tanger Outlets, Kangaroo Kids is located in a non descript industrial area in the same building as Saf-T-Swim. Don’t be fooled by its non-glossy exterior; the inside features an enormous room filled with activities for all ages. Inflatable attractions include the obstacle-filled Wacky World with its tunnels, slides and bouncing area. On the other side of the room is a giant Atlantis bouncer featuring a high thrilling slide. Next to that is the Dual Mini Slide where kids can race each other down.

Younger kids can play in the riding toys which include cars, rescue vehicles, Thomas the Train, and more. Non-inflatable attractions include air hockey, foosball, and basketball (no coins or tokens required).

Birthday Parties
Kangaroo Kids offers 2 hour parties broken into 1 hour and 15 minutes in the inflatable fun room and 45 minutes in the refreshment room. Hostesses will set up the party and clean up afterwards. Parent will be given free invitations to mail to guests.

Party Features:

  • Privacy - Unlike many other bounce party venues, all parties at Kangaroo Kids are private – they don’t rush your party from room to room since they only hold one party at a time in the center.
  • Paying a fair price for food – Included in the party package are pizza and juice for up to 15 kids. Parents can bring their own favorite adult food, soda, and any other extras. If convenience is more important, Kangaroo Kids can provide extra pizza for adults for only $12 a pie (eight slices).
  • Extras – Parents can bring in extra outside entertainment with no fee. They may also go through Kangaroo Kids to rent a bubble machine, cartoon character in costume, or parachute games.
  • Flexibility – Kangaroo Kids is open 7 days a week and does not require set start times for birthday parties. For example, many venues require parties to start at 10 am, 12 pm, 2 pm, 4 pm, etc. Kangaroo Kids lets parents set any start time as long as they have availability.
  • Joint swim and inflatable parties – Saf-T-Swim is located within the same building as Kangaroo Kids, so parents have the option of throwing a combo swim and bounce party. Call Kangaroo Kids for pricing.

  • Weekdays before 3:00 pm – $200
