So long crowded bars, long lines and expensive
dinners. We’re bringing back old school birthday party ideas. We recently attended
a “trampoline dodgeball” birthday that brought us right back to the good old
days of pizza, pop and party rooms. While there was no alcohol in sight, it was one of the more memorable and fun nights we’ve
shared with friends in a while. It’s true – you can have a great time without drinking.
birthday and want to do something a little out of the box, we’ve compiled a list of kids birthday party ideas for adults. Get your friends on board and throw the party of the year.
45 Esandar Dr., Toronto
Note: Remember to bring socks, since you’re required to wear special Sky Zone shoes while trampolining. Don’t want to put your dogs in a shoe that’s been made pre-sweaty for you by someone else. *shudder*
5429 Dundas St. W., Etobicoke
Ok, so the fact that bowling and drinking go hand-in-hand doesn’t really fit in with the kid theme, it’s a nostalgic activity nonetheless. Get really crazy and go for a round of cosmic bowling. Remember to wear your all-white outfit to get the most out of the black lights. Who doesn’t love a black light still?
2026 Yonge Street, Toronto
99 Rathburn Road W., Mississauga
As the ultimate place to play, Playdium has no shortage of activities. From a batting cage, to Dance Dance Revolution, there’s something for everyone. It will still cost you the same amount of money as an all-night rager (this stuff ain’t cheap) but at least you won’t have a hangover the next day, and will remember all your sweet moves on the Dance (Dance Revolution) floor.
10 Dufferin St., Toronto
If chivalry, rivalry and revelry is more your thing (and really, who isn’t into that?), then you’ve gotta head to Medieval Times. You may have heard some buzz about this recently – the XX-year old dinner theatre hotspot recently revamped it’s menu and program, resulting in a more exciting show. Which gallant knight will eventually come out on top and win the hand of his fair lady? Book a reservation now to find out. You can indulge in as much delicious roast chicken and beer as you can handle without cutlery. Awesome. Hint: upgrade to the Royalty Package and get VIP seating, knight’s cheering banner and behind-the-scenes DVD. Because, why not?
