Pump It Up is the pioneer in birthday party entertainment. Founded in Pleasanton, California in 2000, it was an immediate success, allowing parents to host children’s parties in a private, safe, and clean environment. Due to its popularity, Pump It Up began franchising in 2002.
Today, Pump It Up is Kids' Favorite Place with centers across the country. It has set the industry standard for indoor inflatable safety, while providing your community with a fun and healthy family activity.
Kevin and Shannon Ayres were true pioneers, purchasing the very first official Pump It Up franchise in the country and opening it in Frisco, TX in November 2002. Their Grand Opening brought in more than 1200 people, one of the largest in the country to date.
Since then, they have hosted more than 20,000 birthday parties and countless school fundraisers, team parties and special events, including a private Sensory Jump each month for families with special needs children. They were also the creators of the Jump-N-Art camp program that is now offered corporate wide.
The Ayres' have been great supporters of the Frisco community they serve as well, sponsoring local sports teams, donating countless parties to local schools for silent auctions and partnering with organizations like Lovepacs - Frisco who provides food for children on the Free/Reduced Lunch program and don't have enough to eat during school breaks.
Kevin and Shannon reside in Frisco and have raised their two children there. They are grateful for the endless support from their community, allowing them to serve the families in Frisco for more than a decade!
Pump It Up of Frisco is a proud supporter of Lovepacs-Frisco, an organization dedicated to feeding at-risk children in FISD during school holidays! We are an official drop-off location for food donations and open the facility several times throughout the year for "packing parties". Families come to play, pack Lovepacs and have dinner, all for free with any food donation! Like our Facebook page to find out when the next packing party is!
"Our party host, Mario, was outstanding! He had my daughter laughing the entire time. My daughter is Down Syndrome and sometimes has issues socializing. But not after meeting Mario. She was wearing a pink tutu so he wore one too! She was infatuated with him. He made her day a great one and took care of every detail. I was delightfully suprised with the entire experience."

"Exceptional service and knowledge of what it's like to entertain little boys. Very impressive job! Great job on all accounts! We had friends who have told us since our son's party that they are definitely booking at this establishment and location because of the excellent service! It was a wonderful, memorable experience for my son and all of his friends. Thank you!" Marisa C., May 2015
"Everybody, from the gentleman at the front desk to the two party hosts, were AMAZING! I felt like they all genuinely cared about my son and if the kids were having a good time.The two hosts did absolutely everything to make sure mom and dad didn't have to do anything! I love how the hosts cut the cake and pass it out. I love how they bagged up all the gifts and trashed everything that needed to be thrown away! Again, I have nothing bad to say about my experience here for my son's birthday party. I will DEFINTELY be letting my friends know and I will DEFINTELY celebrate future birthday's here :)" Jessica R., May 2015
"Both the party hosts were fantastic! I was thoroughly impressed with how much they took charge and interacted with all the kiddos. Staff at the front desk were also super friendly and helpful - great staff at this location! Christian was great at interacting with kids and leading them on their super hero adventure - we had a blast. We love open play here and this was the easiest birthday party I have ever had for my son. It was great and by far exceeded our expectations!" Kiffany L., May 2015
"We had a pirate party today with with 1st mates Anthony and Ryan. My kiddo had been super into pirates for the past couple months so he really wanted a pirate theme. When I saw you all had a package, I decided I might as well do it. I just wanted to say that Anthony and Ryan were awesome. They NEVER broke character and were great to have onboard. I'm still not sure if serving cake "pirate style" is a real thing, but I appreciated the offer. We just really enjoyed their fun and positive and pirate-y attitude. Thanks!" -Allison H., Feb. 2015
"My daughter had her 6th birthday party at Pump It Up Frisco, and she is a little on the shy side. When it came to her being put in the spot light or recognizing her, the staff (Colton) was very sensitive to her feelings and didn't force her to do anything she didn't want to do. We were very appreciative of the thoughtfulness shown. Staff went above and beyond our expectations! From the moment we walked in until the time we left, the friendliness, cleanliness and overall experience was amazing. Super impressed! " -Rachel K.
"Great Pump It Up location! Very friendly, clean, and organized. My son and my family/friends had a great time! Everything was well planned out, timed, and organized. The kids never got bored because there was something new all the time! Our helpers Alexis & Alexis were great and kept everything moving smoothly and efficiently! As soon as we got home my son made me promise to take him back again. He had a blast and we will definitely be returning!" -Alyssa E.
"From the beginning "Captain Awesome and Super Mario" were very attentive and engaging. They made my son feel super special and played appropriately with all of our guests. Their energy and smiles made our event even more special. As a parent, they made me comfortable letting me know that safety was their priority and they patiently explained each activity and waited for me to verbalize understanding and approval. Our party started on time and was ran smoothly. All of the guests, parents and kids, were amazed and truly enjoyed our party at Pump it Up" -Ashley N.
"We have had kid parties at other venues and this Pump It Up location was awesome! The staff was energetic and seemed to enjoy hosting us. They did an excellent job of keeping everyone happy. We really like not having to share the bounce rooms with other kids as you do at some of the other party locations with bounce houses."
"Sawyer is just awesome with the little kids! We really enjoyed having him as part of our daughters birthday party. The other helpers were also wonderful and we would highly recommend you to everyone we know. You made it SO easy!"
"Staff was organized and kept the party running smoothly. Staff was great with the kids - very friendly and showed enthusiasm."
"The staff is organized and prepared which is great for the parents and the kids had a blast at the party!"
"The staff exceeded our expectation! They were so friendly and helpful. Then the party room girl went above and beyond to make sure everything was set up just as we liked!"
"One of the young men got the kids involved and was running around and chasing the kids with the ball. The kids loved it. Unfortunately only 5 kids showed up to my sons party but that young man really engaged the kids and had fun. It really showed that he loved what he was doing."
"The girl in the party room was exceptional! She wanted to make sure we were happy with everything! She knew when to step in and help!"
