Pump It Up

Kids can jump, bounce, climb, and slide at Pump It Up, the award-winning “inflatable party zone.” The climate-controlled arenas are filled with huge inflatable structures and provide a great space for birthday parties (which include private arena use, rather than just admission during public hours). Doors open at other times for Pop-In Playtimes and a variety of scheduled programs. Typically, parents are required to remain on-site while kids play.

Cowtown Cattlepen Maze

With over 5,400 square feet of frequently changed wooden pathways, designed to resemble the cattlepens of the old west, the Cowtown Cattlepen Maze is a challenging outing, deep in the heart of the historic Stockyards. Maze participants can race against the clock or each other. Qualify with a fast time and a prize might be in the offing! A second story observation deck provides pre-race viewing and an opportunity to plan a strategy. Non-maze runners can visit this vantage point to run the family video camera. Parties: Birthday parties can be held at the maze, with options that range from having your group running the maze just once to a full package that includes an unlimited number of trips through the maze for 45 minutes. The birthday child receives a “Get Lost” T-shirt, and there are goody bag prizes for all party attendees.
