If the cold weather is giving your kids cabin fever, a new business in Beverly has a suggestion: Bring them to Wild Leapers. The indoor inflatable playground — the only one of its kind on the South Side — features a bounce house, two slides, an obstacle course and space for shooting baskets. “I chose this type of business because I have two small kids and a nephew I take care of. We went to one of these places, and they loved it,” owner LaToya Jenkins told DNAinfo. Wild Leapers, locatedat 10200 S. Vincennes,is planning a soft opening this weekend, with its grand opening set for Feb. 1.
