This has to be the coolest use of warehouse space yet. Bounce HouseA Fishers company called BounceZone has leased 12,000 square feet northwest of 146th Street and Cumberland Road in Noblesville with plans for a unique amusement center. They're installing 14 bounce inflatables, along with arcade games and a concession stand. The facility will be available by appointment and for parties and is slated to open Aug. 1. Janae Ledbetter, the owner and president, previously ran a daycare. "It's a full service party place for kids," she said. While their kids have fun, parents can visit other nearby businesses including a fitness trainer, chiropractor and an insurance adjuster.

  • Sounds like what Discovery Zone used to be only on CRACK. Can adults sign up as well. I think it would be a good corporate team building event.
  • yeah... I want to play in a bounce house! Why do the kids get all the fun stuff?
  • Just fill the kids up with Mountain Dew Code Red and they'll be bouncing off the walls without any need to brave the congestion in CarNoblesField.
  • Figures they'd put it in Fishers -- need something to keep the soccer moms occupied.
  • This type of business is actually quite popular in many other locations in the U.S. I have friends in other states who love them. It's another nice option for those who want to have their childrens' birthday parties somewhere besides home. And I also hear they do a good business in the winter because it's a great place to take kids to burn off some energy.

    I'm actually happy to see something unique like this come to the area. It seems that Fishers and Noblesville are simply full of lots of me too businesses.

  1. I am not by any means judging whether this is a good or bad project. It's pretty simple, the developers are not showing a hardship or need for this economic incentive. It is a vacant field, the easiest for development, and the developer already has the money to invest $26 million for construction. If they can afford that, they can afford to pay property taxes just like the rest of the residents do. As well, an average of $15/hour is an absolute joke in terms of economic development. Get in high paying jobs and maybe there's a different story. But that's the problem with this ask, it is speculative and users are just not known.

  2. Shouldn't this be a museum

  3. I don't have a problem with higher taxes, since it is obvious that our city is not adequately funded. And Ballard doesn't want to admit it, but he has increased taxes indirectly by 1) selling assets and spending the money, 2) letting now private entities increase user fees which were previously capped, 3) by spending reserves, and 4) by heavy dependence on TIFs. At the end, these are all indirect tax increases since someone will eventually have to pay for them. It's mathematics. You put property tax caps ("tax cut"), but you don't cut expenditures (justifiably so), so you increase taxes indirectly.

  4. Marijuana is the safest natural drug grown. Addiction is never physical. Marijuana health benefits are far more reaching then synthesized drugs. Abbott, Lilly, and the thousands of others create poisons and label them as medication. There is no current manufactured drug on the market that does not pose immediate and long term threat to the human anatomy. Certainly the potency of marijuana has increased by hybrids and growing techniques. However, Alcohol has been proven to destroy more families, relationships, cause more deaths and injuries in addition to the damage done to the body. Many confrontations such as domestic violence and other crimes can be attributed to alcohol. The criminal activities and injustices that surround marijuana exists because it is illegal in much of the world. If legalized throughout the world you would see a dramatic decrease in such activities and a savings to many countries for legal prosecutions, incarceration etc in regards to marijuana. It indeed can create wealth for the government by collecting taxes, creating jobs, etc.... I personally do not partake. I do hope it is legalized throughout the world.

  5. Build the resevoir. If built this will provide jobs and a reason to visit Anderson. The city needs to do something to differentiate itself from other cities in the area. Kudos to people with vision that are backing this project.
