The A Jumping Joy! Fun Center plans to open its new location at 2901 State St. in Granite City, according to its website.

The business, which closed its location in Millstadt, is an inflatable fun center and rental company. The business offers full-line inflatable games and rides with everything from bounce houses, moonwalks, slides, jumpers and games to obstacle courses, according to its website.

Details of the opening have yet to be finalized said Marie Frost, one of the owners.

The business moved out of its Millstadt location on Sept. 30 after issues with its landlord, Frost said.

The new location is the former Niedringhaus Elementary School, which closed in 2013 to help the Granite City School District save money.

Frost said the business would have access to the gym, as well as a classroom in the former school. She plans to have a party room as part of the new location.

The amount of employees at the new location has yet to be determined, Frost said.
