Welcome to Monkey Joe’s Des Moines, the perfect play zone for little monkeys everywhere. Kids 12 years and under love bouncing, sliding, leaping, and jumping on our wall-to-wall inflatables. Our kids play center is packed with inflatable slides, jumps, bounce houses, and obstacle courses to keep your little monkeys active and entertained.

This place is seriously run down. Their inflatables are falling apart and literally being held together with duct tape. Some have so many holes they won't even stay properly inflated. A bunch of their games are broken and it seems that they have no intention of repairing or replacing. I get it that new inflatables are expensive, but if you are going to hold them together with tape, could you not replace it once in a while? You make sure we don't leave without cutting off our wrist bands, and you'll be sure to yell at me for letting my toddler throw a couple basketballs without paying for the game... but you can't bother to check your tape every day or two and patch the holes that have ripped open? At least my kid is only 2 and can play for 5 bucks. I don't think I could stomach spending $11 for an older to kid to play on stuff that's in such rough shape.

It could use some updates. When we went there where only like 2 or 3 other families which was really nice because busy places can be stressful at times. Anyways my kid loved it but the inflatables were rough looking and ripped all over. Staff was nice.

Wow....I've heard many bad reviews regarding birthday parties, but figured I'd give MJs the benefit of the doubt....I have never been so disappointed in my life. The staff was beyond rude, they didn't have a host/hostess in the room like they were supposed to and they didn't clean anything up until AFTER everything was said and done and we were out of the room. They brought the pizza and not even 5 min later monkey Joe came in, the kids had barely started eating so of course they weren't ready to see him. Then they tried to charge extra to have Monkey Joe come back!! I will NOT be going back...

This place is dirty and run down. There are much better places in town to take kids. My family won't be going back.

Kids had fun but the place is a little run down. And their system was down and they could only accept cash the last time I went.
