Your Kid's Party & Play-Time Headquarters

Monkey Joe's Des Moines, Birthday Parties and Playground

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.

We are located across the street from Valley West Mall on Valley West Drive. Reach us easily from I-235, I-35, or I-80. We’re convenient to families in Windsor Heights, Urbandale, Jordan Creek, and West Des Moines.

Monkey Joe’s inflatable jungle is a great way for kids to stay active and enjoy some healthy exercise. Our main play area caters to little monkeys under 12. Worried about your toddlers bouncing around the big kids? Our Mini Monkey Zone provides a safe space with age-appropriate inflatables for energetic kids aged 3 and younger.

Monkey Joe’s is not just a great place to play, it’s an awesome place to celebrate! We have a variety of party packages and event options, from birthday bashes in our private party room to group rates for schools, sports teams, and kids’ community groups. Our birthday party packages are designed for up to 24 kids, but if you need to plan for 25 or more guests, just give us a call to discuss our private events. When you book a party at Monkey Joe’s Des Moines, we take the stress out of party planning. Just sit back, relax, and let us take care of the setup, cleanup, and everything in between!

Safety is number one at Monkey Joe's so we have developed our Safety Access Child Control System to protect our guests. This includes trained staff, video monitoring, ID bracelets, and certified jumps with safety mats at all entrance and exit points. In order to maintain a clean, healthy environment, we use Enviro-Master to clean our inflatables. With Enviro-Master, we always strive to provide your family with an excellent experience in a safe, clean environment. To that end, our inflatables are regularly treated with Enviro-Master product that is EPA registered hospital disinfectant electrostatic treatment. Applied by trained certified technicians using a micro-misting device, Enviro-Master Sani-Guard kills 99.9% of fungi, bacteria, and viruses using a safe, non-toxic solution.

And some friendly reminders

Don't forget to bring socks. To keep kids safe and play areas clean, we require jumpers to wear socks at all times.
Save big. Walk-in customers can pick up a frequent user card and enjoy up to 40% off the regular price of admission.
Pay attention. Please remember to supervise your children at all times.
Have fun! Indulge in refreshments from our concession area and chat with other parents.
