When Is An Obstacle A Good Thing?

As adults, obstacles are things that get in our way – the fewer we encounter in our day, the better.  But have you noticed how kids LOVE obstacles?!  In particular, obstacle courses.  Whether it’s the fun of testing themselves to see what they can accomplish, or the thrill of competition, kids seem to want to do obstacle courses over and over and over.

An obstacle course can be a great addition to your Chicago area birthday party or family oriented event.  Our 58-foot “Rat Race” inflatable obstacle course is big, colorful, and full of character!  Your kids’ eyes will light up the first time they see it, and their smiles as they exit will make for a perfect photo opportunity.

A Moon Jump 4U, a division of AMJ Spectacular Events, has been renting inflatable bounce houses and obstacle courses to families, organizations, and businesses around Chicago and northeast Illinois (and as far away as Wisconsin and Indiana!) since 2004.  Contact us today to check on availability!
