Coming up with a locale for kids' parties is half the battle when you find yourself designated as party coordinator. Perhaps your child's birthday is next month and you'd like to skip hosting it in your yard just for this year. Whether you are booking a party for a group of rambunctious boys, artistically creative girls or a combination of both, you are sure to find something fun to please everyone at your kids' party in Vacaville, Calif.
Kids Gone Wild
This indoor playground boasts more than 4,200 square feet of play space. In addition to the large playroom, Kids Gone Wild (kids-gone-wild.com) has a snack bar and a separate party room that accommodates up to 40 guests. Different party packages allow you to shape the party to your specifications. You are encouraged to bring your own cake, but pizza from outside the premises is not permitted. All party levels include invitations, candles, party checklist, paper plates, napkins and utensils. Parties held during the week cost less than weekend parties.
Vacaville Ice Sports
If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary, consider an ice-skating party for your kids group. Three different party level packages available at Vacaville Ice Sports (vacavilleicesports.com) permit you to select according to your needs. For instance, the gold party package includes ice-skate rentals, unlimited skating during public skating, a 30-minute skating lesson with a qualified teacher, a private party room that accommodates 15 people, along a host or hostess to help with setup and cleanup, pizza, soda, paper plates and a party T-shirt.
Michaels Store Party
Michaels (michaels.com) is a great place to go if you need craft supplies but many people don't know that they can book parties there as well. Creative kids can let their imaginations flow by completing a project chosen as part of the celebration activities. Party packages include setup and cleanup, party invitations, an assistant to help party-goers with their project, and thank you cards or goody bag tags. If the party has a guest of honor, she receives a keepsake apron. A minimum of five children must attend the party; a designated adult must supervise.
Scandia Family Fun Center
Located in Fairfield, just a short drive from Vacaville, is Scandia Family Fun Center (scandiafamilyfuncenter.com). Some of the activities available at Scandia are miniature golf, kids clubhouse, batting cages, Lil' Indy raceway, water bumper cars, laser tag, arcade and a climbing wall. As you might expect, several party packages are available to choose from. All packages include a private party room, tokens, soda, ice cream, decorations and pizza. Attractions and additional tokens depend on the party level selected.
