Parents' Night Out

Bounce U, Charlotte and Matthews locations

May 26, 2018 - May 26, 2018 @ 6:45 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Saturday.

BounceU knows that sometimes parents deserve a little time by themselves. Drop off your kids for a night of non-stop bouncing and games. It’s more fun and probably less expensive than hiring a sitter, and it’s a hassle-free way to give the entire family an unforgettable night. Charlotte location: 10624 Metromont Pkwy #300 Matthews location: 9129 Monroe Road, Matthews
