I don’t know whether to be impressed or repulsed, but either way, the largest ball pit in the world is coming to New Jersey.

The ball pit is part of a traveling attraction called “Bounce the Mall.”

What is it?

Co-founder Cameron Craig describes the experience itself as a:

“playful inflatable festival set to brighten up otherwise drab and boring parking lots across the nation. We’ve developed a series of incredible attractions that are visually stunning and highly interactive specifically for this project. From the planet’s largest ball pit to an inflatable silent disco, we’ve focused on making this event unique and hugely entertaining. This is going to be family-friendly entertainment unlike anything ever produced, and we can’t wait to see the reactions from kids and adults alike”.

The tour will be at the Mills at Jersey Gardens through Aug. 28.

The ball pit is described as a place where

“guests can swim in a deep sea of plastic balls that is over 10,000 sq. ft., contains a quarter of a million balls, and can hold up to 100 people at a time - making it the largest ball pit on the planet. From inside the ball pit, guests can enjoy entertainment from a central stage, which will play host to a talented team of live entertainers.”

One of the Top 50 Candy stores in the US is right here in Jersey

Black River Candy Shoppe in Chester New Jersey was selected in Food Network Magazine's “America’s 50 Best Candy Stores” a couple of years back and the story went viral online earlier this year.

I decided to take a trip down there for myself to see what they had to offer. Right, when you walk in you feel like you are Charlie about to take over the chocolate factory. Black River Candy Shoppe is a cute little candy shop offering hundreds of different types of candy.

They have old-school childhood candy as well as an incredible selection of newer candy varieties. Candy is displayed in old whiskey barrels, and a lot of their candy is sold in bulk by the pound. It is located in downtown Chester right off of Main Street. Check out the photos from my recent visit:

LOOK: The states with the most UFO sightings

For each state, we’ve also included details of famous UFO sightings in that state. Of note is that almost three-quarters of all UFO sighting reports in the United States occur between 4 p.m. and midnight, and tend to peak between 9 and 10 p.m. Food for thought next time you're out scoping for alien life. Keep reading to see which states have had the most UFO sightings.
