From the Beltway, take Interstate 270 north to West Montgomery Avenue (Exit 6A). Make a left onto Route 355 north (Hungerford Drive, also known as Rockville Pike). After 1 mile, see Jeepers on the left, at 700 Hungerford Drive. Other Jeepers parks are located in Greenbelt, Glen Burnie and Baltimore (two locations).


Spaces are plentiful and free.


The options are varied and somewhat confusing. Entrance to the park is free and includes admission to the soft play land and toddler area. Rides and games require one to three tickets each; tickets cost $1, and tokens cost 25 cents. A 10-ticket pack costs $7.50; a 20-ticket pack is $12. A special for arcade aficionados offers 100 tokens for $20. The weekday family special includes 20 ride tickets, 20 game tokens, a large one-topping pizza and four small drinks for $20. The weekend family special includes 30 tickets, 30 tokens, the pizza and drinks for $30. If children are likely to play on the rides more than five times each, a $10.99 wristband that allows unlimited rides might be the way to go; children smaller than 36 inches tall pay $6 for an unlimited toddler pass. (Some rides have height restrictions.)


Jeepers is open every day: 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m to 10 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday.


Call 301/340-3308 or visit the Web site at www.jeepers.com.


A snack bar offers soft drinks, salads, pretzels and nachos and pizza. The management does not allow food not purchased in Jeepers to be brought into the park.


Children are required to remove their shoes before entering the soft play land, and socks must be worn.
