Prior to opening January 20, 2017, the Jungle was a roller skating rink for over 50 years. Owners Drew & Katie Tuttle, residents of Sunbury, bought it and turned it into a family Fun Center. They have 4 children and thought Sunbury was the perfect place to open this facility. Drew is an accountant by trade, and was looking to do something completely different.
Fun in the Jungle is exceptionally clean and affordable, and is perfect for all ages, a Play Jungle, an Arcade, VR center and mini bowling alley which the whole family could play on! If you are local to Sunbury, OH, definitely stop in to burn some of that young energy and have a load of fun!
The toddler area includes a soft play zone and a small climbing structure with a tunnel and slide.
The larger play area is a multi-level play structure with many tunnels, slides, small and large punching bags and plenty of room to run around, even enough space if Mom or Dad want to join the fun! There is a self powered train in the middle of the Jungle for all ages. Comfortable seating is all around the Jungle so parents can relax while the little ones play.
The Arcade features over 1000 games! They have car racing, motorcycle racing, deer hunting and all the old school, Pac-man, Centipede, Galaga and new video games for hours of fun. You can get a tournament going on our foosball or pool table too! The best part – the arcade is a one-time pay to play wristband (No Tokens or Quarters needed!), so you can play for hours at one low price!
Mini-Bowling is 5 frames, so that it keeps the attention of even the youngest bowler. Balls are all the same size and small enough for all ages to roll it down for a strike! Sign up for the family summer bowling league or check out their Facebook page for bowling specials.
The Virtual Reality Booths are the latest in gaming. In the Virtual Reality World you can do many different things. Check out the Solar System, English countryside or a Mid-evil Castle. Place yourself in a soccer game, bow and arrow challenge or a Drone fight. It really is an amazing experience that can only be felt and seen in the Virtual Reality world.
Beyond the daily play, birthday party’s are their specialty. Two of my three children have dead-of-winter birthdays and we are always on the hunt for a fun new location to host their parties. Fun in the Jungle offers services and rooms for parties from 6 kids to 50 kids where you can book a party room for 2 hours to enjoy your cake, presents and friends and family time. All day wristbands are included in the party package and bowling is available at a discount for our parties. Guests are welcome to explore the Jungle after the party time has ended for as long as they wish. You can even rent out the whole facility at 3 hour increments for up to 270 people. This can be for family fun days, corporate events, church outings or a super fun birthday!
The Jungle is closed on Mondays and has discounted days Tuesday-Thursday. To see their full pricing click here. Each month they also have “multiples day” where mothers of multiples (twins, triplets or quads) purchase for one and the rest are free! And don’t worry, if you forgot snacks, their concession stand is packed with all the essentials – even a healthy banana or two for your young little monkeys in the jungle!
My children absolutely love this fun center, it keeps all three of my children busy and happy and it is one of our go-to locations for any spontaneous rainy day or a day they are tired of the pool or being stuck indoors during the winter.
