Prices for Defy vary and each person who wants to jump will need to purchase special socks and sign a waiver as well.

"We specialize in birthdays. That's our number one thing. Beyond that, best deal is always checking out one of our memberships, because usually for less than the cost of one ticket people can come in here every single day if they want," Beck said.

Tucked away inside of the family fun center Zap Zone in Lansing, Springz has jump sessions for all ages. The neon lights are a vibe. The attractions will have you feeling like a kid again.

You can see how high you have to jump to make a dunk, try out the free jump area, and try your luck with the foam pit.

They also have a ninja course that will test your strength.

"The ninja course basically overhangs an airbag. So you climb up on a cargo net or our warp wall. Once you get up there, there's different obstacles that you can go back and forth across," said General Manager Mujay Qatum. "It makes my day to know that they're coming here to entertain themselves and coming here for fun. It's nice to be able to see people at their happy times and not their sad times."

They also have a smaller course for kids in the top area.

Springz is open Monday through Thursday from noon until 10 p.m. They're open Fridays and Saturdays from noon until midnight.

"Our regular session is $9 for 30 minutes. Or we do have a bundle that we tag team with Zap Zone over here. It's a two-hour wristband unlimited attraction. [For] $30 a person and you can do basically a little bit of everything," Qatum said. "We offer parties. We have parties throughout the week, seven days a week. We have multiple different party rooms. We can post corporate parties, group parties, birthday parties, whatever you guys got."

"We have, like just regular everyday jump on the trampoline. But also we have ...they're called like tumble tracks and longer trampolines, where people go up there and they do flips and stuff like that on it," said Assistant General Manager James Mack. "We have the basketball courts, where people dunk. And then we have what's called extreme dodgeball."

And if you're not trying to get too extreme, they also have a regular dodgeball arena.
