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. Really, taking someone managing the regulation of Alcohol and making himthe President of an IVY Tech regional campus. Does he have an education background?

  2. Jan, great rant. Now how about you review the report and offer rebuttal of the memo. This might be more conducive to civil discourse than a wild rant with no supporting facts. Perhaps some links to support your assertions would be helpful

  3. I've lived in Indianapolis my whole and been to the track 3 times. Once for a Brickyard, once last year on a practice day for Indy 500, and once when I was a high school student to pick up trash for community service. In the past 11 years, I would say while the IMS is a great venue, there are some upgrades that would show that it's changing with the times, just like the city is. First, take out the bleachers and put in individual seats. Kentucky Motor Speedway has individual seats and they look cool. Fix up the restrooms. Add wi-fi. Like others have suggested, look at bringing in concerts leading up to events. Don't just stick with the country music genre. Pop music would work well too I believe. This will attract more young celebrities to the Indy 500 like the kind that go to the Kentucky Derby. Work with Indy Go to increase the frequency of the bus route to the track during high end events. That way people have other options than worrying about where to park and paying for parking. Then after all of this, look at getting night lights. I think the aforementioned strategies are more necessary than night racing at this point in time.

  4. Talking about congestion ANYWHERE in Indianapolis is absolutely laughable. Sure you may have to wait in 5 minutes of traffic to travel down BR avenue during *peak* times. But that is absolutely nothing compared to actual big cities. Indy is way too suburban to have actual congestion problems. So please, never bring up "congestion" as an excuse to avoid development in Indianapolis. If anything, we could use a little more.

  5. Oh wait. Never mind.
