Theme Parties

Here are some of our favorite birthday party ideas! If your child has a special cartoon character, animal, dinosaur, book, movie, or holiday that they just love, let us create the birthday party of their dreams. Just invite the guests, we’ll do the rest!

Classic Party
If a classic party is just your style, then bring your family and friends to play Bozo Buckets, Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Hot Potato, Musical Chairs, Charades, and many more traditional party games.

Celebrate and Create  Party
For artists of all ages and abilities. Your guests will make an age-appropriate, personalized art project based on your child’s interests. We are ready with paint, glue, and glitter!

Kreative  Kitchen  Party For ages 6–10
A deliciously good time! Participants enjoy cooking and crafts. First, each child will decorate their own chef’s hat and then it’s off to the kitchen to mix, blend, sift, and create a delicious treat. Have fun and leave the mess with us!

Magic Show R: $325/NR: $375
Make your birthday party entertaining, and memorable with the incredible magic. You and your guests will enjoy vanishing acts, card tricks, mind reading and much more! All shows are interactive: your child will come up on stage and become a junior magician. Magic show lasts 30–45 minutes. Balloon Animal parties are also available.

Superhero Training Camp
Think you’ve got what it takes to be the next super hero? We will learn to leap tall buildings. We’ll brush up on our detective skills, search for the Joker, and earn our cape. Every child decorates his own superhero cape.


Parties at the Leisure Center

Games & More Ages 3–10
Our party expert will play sports and games using balls, hula hoops, scooters, parachutes, and other gym equipment. Games and sports are tailored to the birthday child’s age. It’s fun for all!

Host your party in the Game Room at the Leisure Center! You and your guests will have exclusive use of the Air Hockey and Pool tables, Electronic Basketball, and the Jumpin’ Fantasy and Makoto Arena 2 exer-games.

Ultimate  Games & Sports Ages 6–10
This is the perfect party for young sports fans who always have energy to spare. Kids will have lots of time in our gym to play sports and games, and plenty of time to celebrate as well. Come pumped up to party, leave happy & tired!
