Play it VR is a virtual reality games venue in York. Up to 6 people can play at once and the experience is out of this world! Absolutely perfect for birthday parties!
Have a look at our review of Play it VR here.
We recently had my son’s birthday party at Rock Up in Hull. They have 26 climbing walls that are 8m high! They don’t need any experience and are on a safety harness. There are things for the younger ones to do there too, like soft play so they don’t miss out on the fun. We had a great party – have a look at our review for lots of photos, including photos of the party food.
Xscape has some great kids party options. We recently reviewed a LaserZone and 4D Golf party there and I was genuinely very impressed. Everything was taken care of from their entertainment and invitations to their food and even the party bags. All I needed to was bring a cake! Plus the prices are very good too.
(or Laser quest, ten pin bowling, arcade games, cinema or 4D golf at Xscape, Castleford
Children’s parties at Xscape Castleford. There are loads of different themed kids’ party opportunities at Xscape in Castleford including a sledging party – we have been sledging at Snozone and it was brilliant!
Last year both my children had their birthday parties at InflataNation in Beverley – a giant inflatable theme park. I’d thoroughly recommend it. The party food (we chose pizza) was fabulous too!
North Cave, East Yorkshire
William’s Den do birthday parties and although we’ve never been to one, the place is brilliant so I’m sure they’ll be good!
Burnby Equestrian, Nunburnham, Near Pocklington, York
We have reviewed Burnby Equestrian Pony Parties (with a twist – the birthday child gets to ride a ‘real’ unicorn!). Fantastic horse-riding birthday parties.
Children can learn the skills of a professional chocolatier in fun workshops and parties with Butterflies Chocolates. Children can make things such as bars, lollipops, truffles and other seasonal chocolates, with plenty of chocolate treats to eat along the way, before packaging up their creations to take home. For parties children get to make a large bar and lollipop and there’s a dipping pot of melted chocolate with treats to dip.
We have reviewed the chocolate making workshop (very similar format to a chocolate making party!).
Drive a Tank Party
Beverley, East Yorkshire
Tank Heroes near Beverley do a fantastic job at a kids party. They hurtle around the woodland driving their own tank! They can also try their hand at rifle shooting.
Yorkshire Paintball Outdoor Activity Centre, Selby, North Yorkshire
We had a Nerf Wars party a couple of years ago for my son’s birthday and it was brilliant. Great staff, great fun and great party food in a reasonably priced package!
Hire a Hall and an Entertainer
If you have a local village hall or community centre, you could consider hiring it along with an entertainer for your children’s party. We have used the Magic Hatter lots and can recommend him. Completely professional and the kids love him!
