Ball pit fun in Union City

I visited with my two energetic girls, ages 2.5 and 4. They had a blast navigating through the play structure, climbing up ladders, balancing across bridges, and swinging on the oversized soft padded balls. Every corner had an exciting play activity. The ball pit had an activity screen on the wall for balls to be thrown at and activate animation. A spacious trampoline area connected to the ball cannon shooters. The ball cannon shooters shot balls up into the air or through the cannons from above. The children gleefully ran around looking for balls to throw in, squealing in delight.

Another corner had a quiet(er) toddler space with a play kitchen, train table, and blocks. The back room is reserved for birthday parties, fully decorated by the Jolly Roger Land staff and included an inflatable throne. The bathrooms were clean with changing tables. I was most impressed by the number of gross motor activities available- developing hand-eye coordination, upper/lower body strength, and strategic navigation. The girls stayed for 2 hours, but could have stayed for longer if given the opportunity.

No outside snack and drinks are allowed except for private birthday parties. Party packages include food. Pricing depends on length of stay, not a flat rate. The first hour is $14/child and each additional hour is $2, however, you must pre-pay for the additional hours or else will be charged more per additional hour.
