FUNBOX, the world’s largest bounce park, is not just a paradise of inflatable adventures; it’s a venture combining fun with a heartfelt cause. Located at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick through January 21, FUNBOX is a marvel in family entertainment, where each jump and laugh goes beyond mere enjoyment, supporting vital community initiatives.
FUNBOX is centered around the simple concept of fun, including the curation of entertaining experiences for children of varying financial circumstances and family situations. FUNBOX supports initiatives for foster care youth through local community charities and encourages the belief that fun and family bonding is an opportunity that everyone should be able to reach. This year, $1 of all FUNBOX tickets sold during its opening weekend benefited The Foster Alliance (formerly known as Arizona Helping Hands), a nonprofit supporting foster communities throughout Arizona and beyond.
“We strive to create affordable and accessible experiences that bring joy and wonder to families from all walks of life,” says founder Antonio Nieves. “FUNBOX brings a new level of fun that all should be able to experience.”
FUNBOX’s goals to combine fun and support for foster youth organizations are far-reaching, and not just for children at younger ages. Another aspect of the bounce park’s founding values is the impact that these experiences have on adolescent youth as they approach young adulthood, seeking their place in the world.
“Our focus is and always will be to create lasting, family moments,” says Franchise Owner and Operator Michael Bolbach.
FUNBOX attractions cycle through different locations seasonally, and it’s Scottsdale’s turn to enjoy this massive outdoor extravaganza, spanning a whopping 25,000 square feet of inflatable bounce play zones. Through January 21, guests can enjoy FUNBOX’s distinct play zones, featuring The Mountain Challenge, Battle Beam, Obstacle Course, Ninja Wall, 23-Foot Slide, Chill Zone, and the all-new debut of Marshmallow Mountain!
This family-friendly experience is open Fridays from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Salt River Fields at Talking Stick is located at 7330 93rd St, in Scottsdale.
