    I have had a poor experience with Jesters. You sign a waiver but then you have 1-2 people patroling the saying "no running, hey 1yr old put the ball back into bounce etc"... It is definitely not KIDS Friendly -- why waste your time signing a waiver if your kid cant be a kid.

    I was a regular customer at the Jester's Court; I even went through a 10 visit pass, but enough was enough. I completely agree with Rebecca's review about the staff.

    They are complete control freaks. They change the rules on the fly, and I never knew what to expect from one visit to another, except for that at some point, some member of the staff was going to come up to tell me I couldn't do something or another.

    I will take the drive to crazy bounce rather than go to jesters court again. The staff was very rude. Prices are ridiculous. And I won't recommend this place to anyone I know. The only positive thing was cleanliness. Feel lucky to even receive a one star rating!!!!!!

    Awesome Time. We have two out-going boys 2yrs old and 4yrs old. Nothing was too intimidating. Clean equipment, except the snack area could be wiped down more frequently. Pretty much a hidden gem, both kids fell asleep on our 5 min ride home.
    Caring and attentive staff- good job Jesters Court.

    We took our two-year-old son here, and he loved it. We noticed that the staff was very attentive, and quick to check on a potentially injured child, and the equipment was also routinely cleaned.

I was a regular customer at the Jester's Court; I even went through a 10 visit pass, but enough was enough. I completely agree with Rebecca's review about the staff.

They are complete control freaks. They change the rules on the fly, and I never knew what to expect from one visit to another, except for that at some point, some member of the staff was going to come up to tell me I couldn't do something or another.

First and foremost, as customer who went there probably a total of 20 times, I never knew what I was going to pay, and it largely seemed to depend on who was working the register.

Things you should know before visiting:
1. You must have socks, shoe's aren't allowed. (flip flops are apparently considered "shoes" and if you wear them you won't be able to mind after your child, even though you aren't allowed on any of the play structures anyway, or maybe you will be, it all depends on who's working)
2. Bring money as they may or may not be able to charge your credit card on any given visit
3. Be prepared to mind your child. You're encouraged to enjoy their lounge while your kids play and they have monitors who patrol the facility to watch the kids. The problem is they don't really pay much attention, so don't buy into the hype and follow your kid around as you would any where else.
4. Avoid their pizza
5. Be sure you know where this place is before you try to go there; it's not exactly easy to find and is located in an industrial warehouse zone, and everything that surrounds it looks more like that. It's easy to miss, and their signage isn't very good.
6. People use electronic-cigarettes (e-cig, vaporizers) are not allowed to use them there. It's okay at Chuck E Cheese or literally ANY and EVERY other child/family fun center, the control-mongers at the Jester's court won't be having any of it. Presumably because they're ignorant of the technology.
7. Be prepared to be scolded. I'm a very average guy, with a very average child, and it's fair to say we are respectful wherever we go, so I expect my experience is typical. Somehow, someway, the staff is going to take issue with something you're doing and they're going to scold you.

If there's a change of ownership, or the current ownership comes back from The Fourth Reich, I might consider revisiting.
