Play Places in and Around Bolingbrook, Plainfield or Shorewood, ILLINOIS

I know there is a Jump Zone in Bolingbrook, but I saw a picture of what it looks like, and with a 2 year old and 5 year old, I think I would have a heart attack trying to keep track of them both. Is there a better option in the area? We love Pump It Up since the rooms are fairly small, and contained.

Also, what else is there to do in either area - obviously restaurants and movies, but something that might be a hidden gem? I might be meeting a friend there since it's the halfway point between us.

What can I do next?

Check out The Dupage Children's Musuem:
We had a membership for years there when my twins were younger. It has two floors and your kiddo's will LOVE it! Check out the website. It's pretty close, in downtown Naperville.
Also, there is a huge Jump place that is so reasonable for the $ (best deal around, my opinion)
It's located in Aurora, really not that far (take 59 north to Montgomery Rd and go left to Frontenac which is the next light and go right, it's about a half block down on the right)

Have fun! Miss those days, my little ones are in school full time now, 1st graders :(

Airtastic in Aurora(near Fox Valley Mall)-It is open but they give you and your children wrist bands with the last four digits of your phone number. When you exit the play area to leave you have to all show your bands.

There's Bounce U Up in Plainfield. I brought my two year old twins there and they had a blast. It was small enough that I didn't lost track, and there is a separate play area for five and under (I think that's the age), so you can bring your kids to the other side if you want to.

I 2nd Dupage Children's Museum. My 3 year old always has a blast there! We've also gone with my 5 year old nephew and he loved it as well. Lots of stuff to keep the kids busy each time they go - and they are learning along the way. The first visit we never made it upstairs as my daughter had so much fun on the lower level.
