Jordan's Furniture

The trapeze school is gone and has been replaced with an aerial adventure park. The water show is still there.

[Gregory Parsons, 04/14/2016]

It's not too much of a stretch to rework a Trapeze School into a trendy aerial adventure course. This is one crazy furniture store that keeps up with the times.

Jordan's Furniture - Trapeze School, Water Show

IMAX theater has temperpedic seats and individual 'buttkicker' bass speakers - great place to see 3D movies.

Jordan's Furniture - Trapeze School

Jordan's is nice, but don't go out of your way to see it. The trapeze school, the fountain show and the items made to look like they used jelly beans to make them are worth a total of 10 minutes of your time. It's fun, but ultimately it's just a store. If you happen to be on a road trip on 128, stop in.

[Raoul, 09/15/2007]

Although we'd rate it as more of a 20 minute stop (enough time to watch a little of the fountain show and monitor trapeze mishaps), we agree. This Jordan's is not as atmospheric or enthralling as the Natick store experience. Both are furniture stores, and both are free.

Trapeze School at Jordan's

Jordan's Furniture - Trapeze School

Awesome Jordan's Reading store has a trapeze in it. You can try it or watch experienced artists flip thru the air while selecting mattresses. I lived in Framingham next to Natick and visit Jordan's whenever we are home. Kellys Roast beef has a lunch counter in Jordan's furniture [at the Natick store, not Reading, which has a Fuddrucker's]. The first Kelly's is on Revere Beach and is open 23 hours a day. Kelly's should be a roadside museum -- lines all day long for their huge roast beef sandwiches.

[Maureen, 08/08/2005]

Trapeze acts, furniture, roast beef -- the perfect combo!
