10 Great Places to Have an Indoor Summer Birthday Party for Kids in Houston

indoorsummerbdaypartyWith the beaches of Galveston so close to the Greater Houston area and so many incredible outdoor options for kids’ birthday parties, there’s always room for celebrating your little one’s big day. As the mercury rises and summer temperatures hit their peak, though, the idea of beating the heat with an indoor party might be more appealing. These ten locations are among the most exciting in the area for kids’ parties, keeping all of your pint-sized guests cool without forcing you to host a large party in your home.

1. Wonderwild

With themes like Glitz and Glam, Pirates, Super Hero and Pretty Princess in addition to basic and signature soirées, Wonderwild is a unique and exciting option for your child’s next birthday bash. Recommended for kids from one to eight years old, Wonderwild will provide everything you need to throw the bash of the year. Just bring the cake, and Wonderwild will do the rest!

2. Potter’s Wheel

It’s important to get kids moving and keep them physically active, but stimulation of their creative abilities is also essential. Youngsters with artistic leanings are sure to love a birthday party hosted by Potter’s Wheel, which offers a selection of paint-your-own-pottery party packages.

3. Stomping Grounds

With four basic packages, a variety of optional add-ons and discounted options for weekday parties, Stomping Grounds Playland offers a wide variety of options for any budget. Groups of all sizes can be accommodated, while Stomping Grounds will even make arrangements for food and favors so that all you and your little one have to do is show up to the party!

4. The Houston Fire Museum

There’s something about a firefighter that seems to capture the imagination of even the most pragmatic child. If you’ve got a little one with an affinity for the heroes in fire trucks, a birthday party at the Houston Fire Museum is sure to be a blast. The Museum will accommodate up to fifteen guests, provide themed plates, napkins and cups for the party and a special t-shirt for the birthday girl or boy.

5. Monkey Bizness

Monkey Bizness hosts private parties seven days a week, so there’s no worry about scheduling conflicts. Your guests will never be forced to share playrooms with other kids and you won’t have to worry about overcrowding. Invitations, balloons, favors, plates, cups, forks and napkins are all available through Monkey Bizness, though there is a fee for some optional products. You can also purchase a pizza and soda package that will feed each and every one of your guests, ensuring that your little one’s party goes off without a hitch.

6. Houston Scuba Academy

When it comes to kids’ birthday parties, recurring themes seem to be the norm. After all, there are only so many things you can do. That being said, Houston is home to one of the most innovative and exciting indoor birthday packages around, and it’s not one that would immediately come to most parents’ minds. The Houston Scuba Academy does have a Scuba Rangers program for kids between the ages of eight and twelve, but they also offer a snorkeling party for private groups. Guests are supervised by two trained professionals, who organize games and make sure that everyone is safe. Party packages include snorkeling time, and access to a party room for refreshments and gift opening.

7. Zuma Fun Center

Private birthday party packages at Houston’s Zuma Fun Center include access to outdoor batting cages, bumper boats, go-karts and kiddie rides, but there’s also a popular indoor arcade on the property that allows kids to get out of the sweltering Texas summer heat.

8. Chuck E. Cheese’s

You just can’t go wrong with a classic, which is why the Chuck E. Cheese’s chain is a perennial favorite for birthday parties. The chance to play games and redeem tickets for prizes is sure to light up the eyes of any child, as is the certified kid-friendly fare of pizza and soda. You can even walk in with your guests without party reservations, though walk-in parties don’t include specialty items or promotional pricing packages.

9. Planet Wow

With more than ten thousand square feet of indoor playspaces, including two arenas and two party rooms, Planet Wow is a Texas-sized venue for birthday parties in the Houston area. Private party guests have access to exclusive rooms, which means that you won’t have to worry about getting lost in the crowded shuffle of a busy playroom.

10. Hip Hop Lollipop

Whether your little girl is craving a full-scale tea party worthy of a princess or her very own spa day complete with sparkling make=up and a mini-facial, Hip Hop Lollipop has her birthday party covered. Themed food and favors, along with custom invitation mailing services and thank you notes are all included, with plenty of additional options available for a small fee.

When you book your child’s party with any indoor playground or party hotspot, be sure that you scope out the options for food and private rooms. Some places allow party hosts to bring in outside food, while others will require you to utilize their catering services. The last thing you’ll want to do is spend a small fortune on an epic cake, only to have it rejected at the door. Familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations regarding parties at an indoor facility, and you’ll slash the likelihood of unpleasant surprises.
