Hawaii Mom Blog: 808 Bounce

808 Bounce

We recently attended a birthday party at 808 Bounce at Pearlridge.

When we arrived the place was just PACKED with kids.

There were 3 big bouncers and a little one designated for kids 3 and under.  There's also an air hockey table that seemed to be pretty popular. 

It was pretty scary because there were so many little kids and big kids in the bouncers at the same time that I was concerned that someone was going to get seriously hurt.

Fortunately I didn't see too many crying kids or accidents, and for the most part, all of the kids were pretty careful.

The party area (tables and chairs in the back of the facility) can be reserved for 2 hours for $150, and the price is $9.75 per child (child can go in and out of the facility all day long with the wristband provided).

Note-they're pretty strict in terms of what constitutes a "party" - even if you come in on your own with just your kids and you bring in a small cake, or if you come in with several kids, you could be charged the "party" rate.

I personally did not like the set up of the area.  There was a HUGE bouncer in the middle of the facility which made it very difficult for all the parents to keep track of their kids.  Perhaps if it was moved off towards the wall it would be easier for parents to watch their kids.

Another thing I didn't like about the place is that there is no restroom (808 Bounce is on the 2nd floor in Uptown and the nearest restroom is on the first floor).

Also, kids go into the bouncer with bare feet, and they'll just run around the entire place bare feet going from bouncer to bouncer, so be prepared to have kids with very dirty feet.

However, despite all of that, the staff seemed very friendly and helpful, and after all, it's for the kids, and I must say, the kids had a BLAST!  DS1 and DS2 just kept going from one bouncer to another and we had a hard time getting them to leave! 

All of the other kids there seemed to really enjoy themselves too.

For a birthday party venue, I personally thought it was just "okay," but simply as a venue for kids to have fun and release energy, it's great!
