A Fun Place to Play
Bounce City, located at 120 N. Church St., in Salisbury, NC, is a magical place that consists of wall-to-wall inflatables children can bounce on, climb on and slide down to their heart’s content. I learned of Bounce City when my daughter, Kristin Saine, booked one of the rooms for a birthday party for my two grandsons. Their birthdays are only days apart, so that seemed like an easy way to celebrate. Just show up with cookies, cake and snacks and let the kids have fun.
The owners, Guanah and Jehan Davis opened this indoor playground two years ago. After graduating from North Rowan High School in Spencer, only a few miles from Salisbury, Guanah went off to college, graduating with a Masters Degree. It was while pursuing a business career as an executive in places like Boston and Washington, DC, that he met his wife, Jehan. She was practicing law in California at the time. Once they married and had children, Guanah felt it time to move back home. While most of Jehan’s family is in California, she has grandparents close by in Augusta, Ga.
Guanah said before the move to NC, he and Jehan lived in Philadelphia, often taking their children to a place similar to Bounce City. Once in Salisbury they began looking around, discovering they had to drive to the next town for that kind of play. After giving it some thought and consideration, they decided to go into business and Bounce City was born.
Bounce City not only has wall-to-wall inflatables for kids 13 and under, but also has arcade games, a separate area for toys and rooms for birthday parties, sporting events, and family reunions, including both large and small groups. Fundraising opportunities are available for schools and organizations.
I recently spent an afternoon with my youngest daughter, Kelly Key, and my two granddaughters at this indoor playground. Kelly said she loves Bounce City because it brings out the best in children. Not only can children enjoy simple play in climbing and using their imagination, but they are learning social skills by taking turns and interacting with others. She also likes Bounce City because of the friendly staff and the variety of activities.
If you’re looking for a great time for your children in the Salisbury area, try Bounce City. My grandkids love it and I’m sure your children and grandchildren will, too.
