We visited Scooter's Jungle for the first time in February 2013 during an "open play" session. There are 3 slides, one of which I tried, and it was quite fast! There are 4 different bounce houses, including 2 with mini-obstacles and a fun mini zip line, and a 4th, larger bouncer with basketball hoops in it. There is also an extra large climbing play area and two ping pong tables.
