FunBox

FunBox provides bouncing entertainment like no other, aiming to improve upon the birthday party bounce houses of the past and creating a 25,000-square-foot bounce zone.

Available through May, the massive inflatable installation is ready for action at Arrowhead Towne Center in Glendale. The multi-zone bounce park is enormous, with each of the jumping zones being connected in a network with 10 distinct play areas throughout.

It is “the world’s biggest bounce park,” says Michael Bolbach, a FunBox franchise owner. “We have an obstacle course, we’ve got 25-foot slides.”

The jump zone has plenty of space to freely jump around, but part of what makes FunBox unique is the themed play areas. From a ninja wall to a “‘Wipeout’-inspired” jump space, there are a plethora of play opportunities.

“Kids anywhere from like 3 to 12 years old absolutely love this, and parents love this, too,” Bolbach says.

FunBox has been in several locations across the Valley since 2021, including Chandler, Scottsdale and Mesa. FunBox also has experiences in California and is expanding to other locations across the country in the coming months.

FunBox not only provides the immersive jump experience but typically serves sno-cones and plays music for guests. It aims to get kids and adults out of the house and into the fresh air, a perfect activity for those on school breaks throughout this month and during Spring Break in March.

Another aspect of FunBox is its pledge to donate a percentage of opening-weekend proceeds to a local foster care charity. The company focuses on what it calls “hyper-local” charities and helps children in foster care who are 15 years old and older.

According to its website, FunBox has a goal to donate between $50,000-$100,000 during 2023 to charities. In the past, these have included Compassion Planet in Sacramento and Sunshine Acres in Mesa among others.

FunBox encourages prospective guests to purchase their tickets in advance and online at funbox.com.
