Looking for a fun, inexpensive way to get your kids’ wiggles out? Head to Uptown Jungle Fun Park!
Previously known as Urban Jungle Mesa, Uptown Jungle in North Mesa is open and thriving! They are an indoor fun park for the entire family!
We know there are several trampoline parks in the valley, but Uptown Jungle (UTJ) is not your average trampoline park. It is an adventure park with countless activities for kids of all ages! There’s countless reasons we love Uptown Jungle (UTJ) in Mesa, but we’ll name a few below.
Reasons We Love Uptown Jungle
Or, if you really want to get a deal, check out UTJ’s awesome membership plans and become a part of the UTJ family!
They have an enclosed toddler area! Our littles love the trampolines, but when there are too many big kids, it’s easy to get hurt. We love that UTJ has an enclosed toddler area with soft, safe spaces for kids 5 and under.
They have a full snack bar available! Part of our experience is the kids get to pick a snack out after our jump time is up. That’s one of their favorite parts!
There is only one entrance/exit! That sounds like a weird thing to love, but when your children are running around like crazy, it’s very stressful to have to watch two exits to make sure they don’t escape or get taken.
There are separate spaces for everything! There is an enclosed trampoline park, an enclosed basketball trampoline area, an enclosed toddler space, an enclosed rock wall, and an obstacle course that does not connect to any of those. We love that because it’s safer, but also because kids get bored with something so when they go to a new section it’s almost as if they’ve gone to a new park!
The waivers are all online! Not only is that better for health reasons, but it saves time when you get there. The lines have never been longer than 5 minutes because everyone had their waivers already done!
BYO GRIP SOCKS
You can wear any grip socks. It does not have to be their specific socks. But if you do need socks there, it’s only $2.75 a pair!
Their facility is super clean. I’ve never gone in there and left feeling gross. Some trampoline parks are sticky and you can just tell it’s germy. Not UTJ. Their facility is very clean and well kept.
They have a parent’s lounge! It’s not something we have been able to enjoy yet because our kids are young and still need supervision, but we are definitely looking forward to the days when our kids are old enough to hold their own and we can sit and relax in the lounge. Our husbands definitely enjoy watching sports in there.
BALL BLASTER ARENA
The kids have a blast filling up the giant scoop with balls and having them get dumped right on them! Kids playing on the upper level can also play along by using the air-powered blasters on each side.
Let your kids complete their own version of “American Ninja Warrior” as they climb on various levels of towers and rock walls, all while safely strapped into a harness.
MEGA PLAY STRUCTURES
The fun never ends with hundreds of square feet of ladders, slides, bars, tunnels, and more.
With several different slides throughout the park, your child is sure to find one they want to ride over and over again. Heck, you may even find yourself wanting to take a few turns!
If your kid loves climbing, then they may spend a lot of time going up and down this spider tower. We especially love it because it provides a “safety net” in case of falling, which is sometimes just as much fun for the kids on this attraction!
What would a fun park be without endless trampolines? UTJ features trampolines for all ages. With 2 trampolines in the enclosed toddler area, and dozens of trampolines around the park, everyone is sure to find plenty of space for their jump tricks! There’s a dodgeball arena covered in trampolines, as well as a dunk section and freestyle jump section.
Our kids tired themselves out just making their way through the obstacle courses! There’s an inflatable obstacle course that is super fun for the kids to run through, as well as a built-in obstacle course in the mega play structure.
We love this area because it makes our kids feel like they’re not missing out on anything. There is a tiny obstacle course, slides, all the things to jump off of and climb on, and a tiny enclosed trampoline area just for toddlers. Sometimes when things get a little crowded and bigger kids don’t really pay attention to the little ones, Scotti and Beckham enjoy the toddler area and get a lot more space to themselves.
