  • It was fun for the kids to spend over 2 hours running around. There are a variety of equipment, so they didn't get bored easily. But it gets pretty crowded on the weekend, and even during the week som...  more »
  • This is a great place for kids to run around and exhaust themselves. Its kind of pricey, since we normally only spend about 3 hours there at $9/kid, but they offer military discounts so that's about $...  more »
  • I used to take my kids to Monkey Joe's every week. The last time I was there they got new bouncy houses but got rid of the other ones because there is not so much space. Some of the kids that work her...  more »

  • I am dissapointed with this place. Most of the staff are rude and don't do their job. The place is dirty and so are the foam objects in the toddler area as well as all the bouncy houses. They also don't have their weekend pricing posted anywhere but charge you more on the weekends. The few arcade games they have are so expensive to play. Almost $2 or more for each game to play. The bathrooms are always dirty. Not to mention the food they serve here. I won't be back.
  • Our daughter is almost 2 and had a blast at Monkey Joe's! The staff was super friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back and now plan on having her birthday party here.
  • Don't go. 1) DIRTY... very dirty. 2) high prices 3) poor security, no one at the door, i walked right out with my kids 4) broken and old play equipment. Go to mega play in spring lake!
  • 1) It's dirty. I went shortly after they opened specifically so it wouldn't be as dirty from other kids playing and littering. But there was already trash and even half eaten candy on the floor and in the bouncy house. They obviously do not clean well. There were practically no kids when I got there so the trash had to be from the previous day(s). 2) It's broken or old and gross. The play equipment here is all pretty weathered. I have a toddler. The area he played in had large padded shapes which would have been nice except that most of them are torn. There were some wooden activity cubes with the beaded wires (like what many doctor offices have). They looked like they had been left out in the rain, they were so old and grimy. 3) An arcade machine in the toddler area. I took my son here to play in an active manner with other kids his age. There is a car/motorcycle game small enough for toddlers that distracts them from playing with each other in a constructive way. They all wanted to use the light flashing machine instead. This is counterproductive to getting a kid out of the house and away from electronics so they can socialize with others their age. 4) Not a good selection of food. I can understand the 'no outside food or drink' policy. But my son doesn't have enough teeth to chew things like pizza, hot dogs, and candy. Even if he did I wouldn't be in a rush to give him that kind of stuff anyway. I'm not a total health nut but it would be nice if they had better options like applesauce or baby food pouches that are easy for a toddler to eat in a play place setting. 5) Employees? There was one obvious employee at the front desk. She was nice enough but I'm not really sure if the man hanging out around her was an employee or her boyfriend. The woman rang up the purchase and did all the monetary stuff but then she had the man put on my wrist band and my son's ankle band. He was nice enough too, he just acted like he wasn't supposed to be there and wasn't dressed like an employee. I felt like the woman was having him do stuff occasionally to make it look like he was there to work when he was really just hanging out with his girlfriend. 6) If you read this far in the review, then I would like to suggest an awesome alternative to Monkey Joe's. There is a place called MegaPlay in Spring Lake. It is worth the trip. It's new, has low prices, is clean, and has a much larger and uniformed staff. The play equipment there is fantastic and varied. There are no arcade machines which is great. There are a couple of slow-moving merry-go-rounds which are also great. They do a Military discount as well.
  • My son and nephew's always have a great time bouncing around at Monkey Joe's. It's affordable and a safe place for the kids to get out energy.
