Bump, Roll, and Flip Freely with Cottonwood Mall's Ridiculous Fun

By Kelly Church

It's a pretty common scene for malls across the nation to have activities for kids: water features, playgrounds and more. Cottonwood Mall in Albuquerque, NM has a more extravagant answer for keeping kids busy: Ridiculous Fun. The concept behind Ridiculous Fun is that kids get inside big bubble balls and flip around, jump, bump into friends and roll all over. Owner Jeremy Richey says the activity is great for all ages, and gets rave reviews.

"It has been called 'the most fun in my entire life' by players and is indeed quite a spectacle to watch people flip over and bump their friends safely," Richey says.

There are two bubble sizes so that kids of all ages, shapes and sizes can enjoy the experience. Richey says children as young as four can play and that adults as large as Shaquille O'Neal can fit. No matter who gets in the bubble ball, Richey says the experience is hilarious and fun to watch.

"It's almost as fun to watch players in the Bubble Battle Arena as it is to play," Richey says.

The cost to play is $5 for 5 minutes, $10 for 15 minutes, $15 for 30 minutes and $20 for an hour of playtime. Players can just show up at Cottonwood Mall to play, spur of the moment, but Richey and his team ask that guests call ahead if they're planning on playing in groups larger than four. Ridiculous Fun is open seven days a week, except on holidays.
