.

I was really hoping to like this place...however I was very disappointed once arriving to Monkey Bizness with my 3 children. I was led to believe that there was a play area for my 18 month old toddler. This was not the case but instead felt like a glorified bounce house room. I easily forgave this as I could occupy my sons time while my girls played around in their many bounce houses, after all we were there to have fun and burn some preschool energy! The frustration came when I witnessed several adults playing along side their kids...mind you very little kids play here too. I am all for having fun with your kids...don't get me wrong, but when overly large adults are sliding down their monster play house and admit as much that they cant control their bodies and where they land...this becomes a little frightening for kid safety! I approached management about it and they said they had no rules against parents playing along with their kids that they encouraged it for kid safety of that particular kid...when I tried to explain my thoughts I was easily dismissed by management. I also found it disturbing that their rock climbing wall had only a rope to keep kids off of it as well as a flimsy landing mat...could this really be safe if something were to go amiss.? At no time did I see an attendant anywhere in sight or anyone monitoring the two different play areas. No Doubt We Will Not Be Returning. There are plenty of places to take my kids that are in the business of not just making money but to really make it a fun and safe environment!

Just had my son's 8th birthday party here & in his words,""thanks, mom it was the best party ever"". This place is huge with lots of room for all his friends. They loved climbing the rock wall & doing races on the obstacle course. The staff was great very friendly & wonderful with the boys. They took care of evertything, invites, plates etc & we ordered pizza & even the parents commented on how good the pizza was, not the usually cheap pizza that you get from place like this. Now my daughter wants her party there too!

I want to say first that i told all my friends and family about this fabulous business,
The staff was very generius and had great hospitality, we had a group with 8 children and had a great time, we stayed for 3 hours during the open play hours, they opened a party room that was not being used at the time to let us eat, they provided us with plates and napkins and utensils at know costs, the highlight was when they let us all try the rockwall for no additional charge just to do us a favor, rockwall is for private parties only but made a exception for our goup.
I will have my childs birthday party every year there untill he is old enough to not want it there anymore.
I think its the best childrens bouncing place and not to mention it is very clean
Thankyou Monkey Bizness

There is no supervision here. The children ran around with only parental supervision (which somehow lacks). The management wouldn't open the other room when asked over and over (it was a school holiday and there were lots of school age kids along with my preschool aged children). The older kids were literally stepping over the little kids. There are better places in NW Houston that do have supervision of the establishment which help to avoid having your child get hurt. I didn't appreciate the way that my children and I were treated here.

We just had my sons party here & it was awesome. The place is super clean and everyone is really friendly. The kids & the adults both had a blast. You do need to book early though, we did not get the time slot we wanted because we called too late & it was already taken.

We just had a party there 3 days ago. If you want to rush it...this place is for you. My biggest problem was I was told to be there (in writting) 1 hr prior to the party to ""set up."" I spent $143 on decorations to have a Backyardigans theme and when I asked which party room was ours so that I could begin setting up prior to guests arriving....I was told that we could not ener our private party room until 12:45pm (Our party started at 12). Apparently, there was another party gping on in there and as soon as one is moved out...you're pushed in. Its very rushed and had I known that..i would have taken my $455 elsewhere. My guests complained of table clothes being rolled up while they were still eating. I was embarrassed. we did get contact info and will be contacting the owner of the business. Will not have another birthday there. Make sure you don't purchase your own decorations since you're so rushed. Also..they do supply their own plates and cups and they'll set that up for you.. not reccommened for themed parties. When we asked for a manager..I nearly laughed at how unprofessional the 3 tenagers handled it. They all looked around and actually said aloud...""Aren't you supervising today,"" to one of the girls working. Are you kidding me? At least be cool about it. Messy! Hope this helps. we do love visiting MB during the week...often we have it to ourselves and the place is HUGE! You'll love the 2 story slide.

Pros: great during the week for open play

Cons: you're just a number when having a birthday party

I had a party there and it was amazing!! The staff was great and very helpful,I had spoken to the manager when i booked the party and she was very helpful to me with my questions and needs,i booked my party on a Monday and by Friday my invitations were ready then got a courtesy call a week later asking if i am ready for my party coming up and i appreciated the contact. The place is very clean and looks great, The playrooms are big and the kids had so much room to play and the rock wall was exciting!! The 2 attendants were involved and courteous,The cake time and food time was great and went by fast so they allowed me to stay another 15 minutes in the room at a very small charge, I will definitely be having more parties and recommend them to everyone,

I have had a few birthday parties at Monkey Bizness for my kids. Both times I have had POOR service. We always have to wait for our party to start and the second time the under-aged, rude, unprofessional staff made us wait because the party before us ran into our party time, they cut our time short and told us it was because the next party is waiting. There was NO consideration of our time and money that we paid FULL PRICE for and got our time cut short. I will NEVER take my kids back to Monkey Bizness or will I recommend this this place to anyone. I sent an email to the owner and got a call the next day from someone else asking me to return the call because she wanted to ask me more questions about what happened. I returned the call and left a message, that same afternoon I called again and left another message. Two weeks later, I still heard nothing. So I send another email back, and I still heard NOTHING. The employees of Monkey Bizness does not care about customer service and that makes me Furious!! Monkey Bizness needs new management, probably an older and more mature team. Right now, it is run by a bunch of rude and obnoxious teenagers who do not care about anyone but themselves.

I have had more than 2 parties there and they were fantastic, but when my teenage daughter actually wanted to work there we thought this would be great, turns out not so great. Management is not professional and not mature enough to be running a company that caters to children.\r
\r
Company is run by a bunch of teenagers with attitudes. No adult management at all during the evening hours. Company is not so professional when it comes to following Federal Hour and Wage pay rates. \r

We just had my son's 9th birthday party there and it was awesome!
The kids had a great time & loved all the inflatables, especially the rock wall. The service was wonderful they took care everything, including the party favors & the pizza. Now he wants to go back to the open play sessions.

Monkey Bizness is a perfect place to have a birthday party. Kids always have fun. Party is in a contained area so very little work for the host is required.

Monkey Bizness is a great place for kids birthday parties. Huge rooms that allow for large parties. There's plenty to do and it's sure to be a hit for any birthday party! The only down fall is that it can get a little wild and there is chance for injury. The rock wall is a great feature!

I have never had a party that was so wonderful, fun and easy!! Not only did the kids have fun the parents had a blast. The party was well supervised and everyone was so friendly and helpful they treated our party like it was something special. The facility was super clean. The price was great it had all the extras (favors, balloons) without the extra charge. They even let you bring in your own food for a small fee. My son said he wants his party there next year too.

PROS: Friendly, clean, lots of space & rock wall
CONS: hard to get a time spots, books up fast

I like the concept! Basically, the fees are fine. But they restrict your kids from climbing on the "rockwall" unless you are having a party (no option to pay extra?). The waiver they have is for a reason. You are totally responsible for your kids safety and location and there is no one moderating with any authority. It's a warehouse with blow-ups, and other than that, it's a free-for-all. Could be much better, considering the fun that kids can have, but there needs to be more safety precautions, and a better package for just stopping by to play for a while.

PROS: Lot's of fun in one place - out of the weather.
CONS: Lot's of danger in one place without supervision - biz plan not there yet.

This is a brand new play place for kids and it is fantastic. they have a climbing wall, lots of inflatables (moon walks). It would be a fantastic place to have a birthday party, if you have your child's party there they will provide custom invitations and balloons. You can bring your own cake or pizza. Give it a try!
