Best Places For a Kid’s Birthday Party In Shreveport – Stu’s Top 5
My son is nearly two years old and birthday parties, from what I understand, will be an annual event from now on. My wife does the invite list and handles the candles and cake which leaves me scratching my head for the ideal birthday party spot (until he’s old enough for Vegas). While im not one to always take the cheapest or easiest way out, here are my top five most practical and most fun children’s birthday party spots in Shreveport or Bossier.
Here for 10 kids you get two hours of table space and tons of games. Each kid gets 2 slices of pizza, 20 tokens, and an e-mail invite for about $100.00 and the birthday boy or girl gets star recognition in the birthday show. Who wouldn’t want that? They also have what they call “adult food” (like cake, ice cream and chicken wings) which is extra for your party package. The really neat thing is, you can schedule, plan and pay for the party all online and after all…it IS where a kid can be a kid.
Llamas and sheep and monkeys OH MY! Here you can reserve the entire park for a half day for $650.00 or if you have fewer guests, reserve the picnic tables under the covered area with two medium pizzas, two 2 liter sodas, 10 plates and cups with 50 ride tokens and admission for up to 10 children and adults for $200.00. The real treat is that they have petting zoo pals that are ideal for the younger set of children not wanting to have their party at the skating rink AGAIN this year.
Four words. Liquid. Nitrogen. Ice cream. This place has TONS of things to do, and it’s educational to boot. For the package fee, (140 for members, 170 for non) you get all day admission, 1.5 hours in your party area, themed activities, 12 cupcakes and lemonade, liquid nitrogen frozen ice cream, a party favor for each guest, and a gift certificate for the gift shop. You can even add what they call “party upgrades” like pizza or an iMax film and even get add-ons from Counter Culture! You can even download and print your invitations HERE.
Kids start out in their massive gym with trampolines, foam pits and 2 story obstacle course. 40 minutes of gym activities, 20 minutes of adventure challenge, and 30 minutes for cake and ice cream. Things are way more structured with gym staff leading the pack. All you have to do is provide the cake, ice cream and kids and they provide the fun. They set up and clean up too. For 13-20 kids it’s $175.00 and way worth it.
Jumpin Jupiter is an indoor inflatable obstacle coarse with bouncers and giant slides. They have multiple party rooms, a great website, friendly staff, a clean environment AND they clean up the mess! There’s also plenty of parking for all your guests and you can get away with a 20 kid party for around $275.00. Only $225.00 if you have your party during the week!
