About Pump It Up

Local History

When Scott Waltenburg first became a father, he realized there was a lack of family friendly entertainment venues in Chicagoland. This prompted him to open a Pump It Up located in Glenview. He had tremendous sucess so he sold the Glenview location and purchased a building in the heart of Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood. Scott performed a major commercial renovation, for which he earned a Good Neighbor Award. In September 2007, the brand new Pump It Up of Chicago opened it's doors!

Pump It Up of Chicago is managed by Brett Anderson. A Chicagoland native, Brett has worked with a variety of child-centric companies like Chuck-E-Cheese and SCORE!. He started working as a Party Attendant for Pump It Up of Chicago in 2008. He worked his way through the ranks of Coordinating, Front Desk and up to General Manager where he uses his sense of humor to always keep things fun.

Together with his management team: Nicole and Valeria the Pump It Up Chicago family delivers outstanding service and unforgettable party experiences in our clean, climate controlled facility located in the heart of Chicago.

Customer Testimonials

Personable. Introduced themselves. Made you feel welcome, explained what they were going to be doing.

Best birthday party location we have ever had. All the guests were impressed. We loved all the services that were provided. Everyone was so friendly and took care of every detail! We were very impressed. The staff was great with the kids and were very cheerful. We absolutely loved our party coordinator.

I always had someone available to me throughout the entire party...letting me know what the agenda was, confirming my needs or wishes, willing to help with anything. Very impressive, attentive staff!

The staff was great! They made sure that the kids had a fun and safe time. They made our party effortless.

Beginning with the initial booking through to packing up our car we were treated honestly as GUESTS. Each individual went our of their way to make sure we were comfortable with the process and level of service. Every person communicated with us. Even though being surrounded by 30 four year olds can be crazy, the staff maintained a calm that made me feel relaxed. I ACTUALLY WAS ABLE TO ENJOY MY SON's PARTY! It was wonderful and REALLY A BREATH OF FRESH AIR TO BE TAKEN CARE OF BY THE PUMP IT UP CHICAGO STAFF.

This is a great team. And great people are hard to find - Pump it Up is lucky to have them on board! Nice job!

From the time we got to the front door, until we left, everyone that worked our party was absolutely awesome - attentive, great with the kids, it could not have gone better

All of the staff for our party were fantastic. They were all very organized, attentive and great at communicating what was going to happen next throughout the party. This was one of the best birthday parties we have ever had - and definitely the easiest for me to plan. Thanks for making my daughters birthday so special.
