We've had our UPS and DOWNS this past year, but here’s a place to get some UPS! 🤸🏻♀️ 🙌 Inflatable World is open again for your kids to jump around and get their back-to-school wiggles out. 🤸🏻♀️🤸🏻♀️🤸🏻♀️
We had pretty much every jumpy to ourselves 🙌 and if there were kids in one, then we just went to another. We came on a Thursday an hour before closing 👌 , but I'm sure weekends are busier.
WHAT IS IT
An inflatable amusement park with 10 different jumpies for kids to run around, jump on, climb up & slide down. It's set up in the parking lot at the Mission Valley Mall just behind the old Macy's, across from In N Out. These inflatables are only seasonal, usually from Jan/Feb thru September; and the rest of the year/fall is set up as a Pumpkin Station for Halloween from Sept-Oct and as a Christmas Tree stand from Nov-Dec.
WHY WE LOVE IT
My kids LOVE to jump and bounce around and it gets all of their energy out. They love the freedom of "being on their own" to run around to each of the inflatables because it's completely enclosed. There are several attendants at the gated entrance so kids can't leave on their own.
GOOD TO KNOW
🧦 SOCKS are required for all jumpers. NO SHOES 👞 or BARE FEET 🦶🏻 are allowed on the jumpies.
⚠️ SAFETY: Face masks are required 😷 , social distance when waiting in lines 🤚 and use hand sanitizer 🧴 👐 found at almost every jumpy BEFORE & After entering. There's also a hand washing station with SOAP in the back near the bathrooms. 🧼 👍
☂️ SHADE: Very little, unless kids are inside a jumpy or at one of the shaded tables. Please put sunscreen 🧴 & hats on your kiddos 🧢 and you'll want to bring LOTS of water. ☀️💧
You'll find several picnic tables, some are shaded and some aren't, for parents to sit and chill out while the kids run around. Although I tend to follow mine around from a far distance to make sure I know they're okay and I always know where they are.

WHAT YOU'LL FIND
Yes! Port-a-potties are in the back with a soap hand-washing station
Yes! It’s very stroller friendly.
Flat paved parking lot is covered with astroturf. There are electrical cords to keep all the jumpies inflated that are safely covered with tape and tucked underneath the astroturf. But if you have a stroller or other adapted device know that you'll have to navigate over some small bumps.
No outside food or drinks are allowed. We brought our own water bottles in. There is a snack stand inside for chips, candy bars, soda & water, etc. There are picnic tables all around, some are shaded and some are not.
If you have littles, stay with them in case they get scared at the top to help them down; and watch out for big kids not paying attention to being safe around littles.
