The Business End: More kidding around at Wippersnappers posted on 12/01/2017

Two years ago, on the day after Thanksgiving, Wippersnappers opened its doors as the new kids play place in Sandy. And as they celebrated their anniversary last month, the business welcomed an expansion that added approximately 2,200 square feet of fun for young ones, bringing the total to approximately 6,600 square feet.

“The response from the community has been awesome,” said Wippersnappers owner, Hans Wipper, about the first two years of the business, while noting that the clientele stretches from Government Camp to Oregon City. “They’re coming from everywhere and we’ve had a real positive feedback.”

The expansion became a possibility when the space next to Wippersnappers became available, and Wipper noted that they had to either jump on the opportunity or lose it.

“We need it, there have been several times we’ve had a waiting list to get in,” he said. “The extra space will be well received, I think.”

Included in the new space will be a second party room, another bathroom, two obstacle courses/bounce houses and a new location for the wiggle carts. The spot where the carts used to be will feature six more tables and 24 more chairs.

“We’ll have a lot more additional seating for those big days,” Wipper said.

He added that the new space will be geared toward the upper age range for kids who go there, with a minimum height of 40 inches for the inflatable obstacle courses.

Wipper noted the new space will be closed from Monday to Wednesday, to allow younger kids to visit “without temptation,” but that it will be open during the Christmas break.

Wippersnappers is located at 16542 SE 362nd Drive in Sandy. For more information, call 503-668-7221, visit www.wippersnappers.com or find them on Facebook.
