1. Pro Sports Events

    With 5 professional Houston sports teams in our backyard, why not host a party at a pro baseball, football, basketball or soccer game? You can often get special group ticket pricing with your party packages (though the cost can still be a bit pricey for some events.)

2. Kid-Sized Gyms

There are lots of gyms around that provide organized games and activities involving running, jumping, climbing, etc. My daughter attended many parties at Kids n Action throughout elementary school and always left the place with a good sweat and lots of smiles! They are a very popular and well-respected business in the community.

7. Indoor Trampoline Arena

What's more fun than literally bouncing off the walls and flying through the air in a giant room which has floors and walls made out of trampolines? Your kids will burn tons of calories running, jumping, tumbling, bouncing, and even playing a friendly game of sky high dodgeball.

8. Fencing


En garde! Here's a truly unique idea very few kids have had the opportunity to try. How many kids do you know that have held a "foil" or attempted a "feint?" No doubt, these words probably don't mean a whole lot to you. Why not introduce your friends to a sport that is truly out of the ordinary in mainstream U.S.A.?

9. Cosmic Bowling

For some truly fun party games, try bowling in the dark! Cosmic bowling includes laser, disco, and black lights along with runway lights and loud music. The bowling lanes even glow in the dark.


10. Skating

Kids love skating parties. Roller skating rinks offer traditional or in-line skates. For younger skaters or those with disabilities, many rinks have adaptive equipment and skates with wheels that can lock so that kids can step safely instead of rolling out of control. The fun music, lights, and games are usually a hit with most kids. 

Fun City Sk8 & Play


Trade in wheels for blades and hit the ice rink for a fun ice skating party. Don't know how to ice skate? No worries. Include a short group lesson to start your party.

11. Inflatable Indoor Playgrounds

Bounce, climb and jump like crazy on giant indoor inflatable slides, bounce houses, obstacle courses and more!

12. Zoo


Got an animal lover in the family? What better way to celebrate a kids birthday than hosting a party at the Houston Zoo! With their newly updated water splash pad, kids play area and petting zoo, there are lots of fun things to do. Organize an amazing scavenger hunt! Reserve their pavilion for your group to gather.

13. Footgolf

Footgolf is a fun game for kids of all ages. It's a combination of soccer and golf set up on a regular par-3 golf course. Instead of golf clubs and balls, players kick soccer balls into 21-in holes that look like giant plant pots embedded into the ground. The basic rules of golf apply except players use their feet to sink the ball into the hole. My daughter enjoyed this game when she was young and continued to meet groups of friends at the course throughout high school.
