Are you looking for something fun (and warm!) to do this week?  Living Social is featuring 5 Pump It Up open jump  passes for just $20 (or $4 per visit).

Since these passes are regularly priced at $8 each, you’ll only be paying half price for up to 2 hours of jumping fun.  There are a variety of open jump themes available on a weekly basis such as glow jump and ice cream jump.

As an alternative, you can also purchase a 3-pack of open jump passes for $12 as well.  The passes can be used over multiple visits, and they are valid for 120 days after the date of purchase.
