Jump On In in Lowell offers a Parents’ Night Out every Friday night (unless the facility is booked for a private party). Children play on the giant inflatable equipment, slides, obstacle courses, and more. They are fed pizza and popcorn and watch a movie. And then they jump some more.
“At the end of the night there’s a lot of tired kids with red faces,” said Kevin Lynch, owner of the Lowell location, with a laugh. “Once we started offering it on a somewhat more regular basis, we started to get a lot of regular parents dropping off their kids. They are going to movies, going out to dinner, they are just getting some free time away while the kids are having some fun.”
Fridays, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. For kids age 5 to 12. $20 first child, 20 percent off additional children. Jump On In, 100 Phoenix Ave., Lowell. (The Boston location offers a Parents’ Night Out but less frequently so please call for up-to-date information).www.jumponinfun.com.
