Climbing Party at Rock Up in Hull

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.

LaserZone and 4D Golf Party at Xscape Castleford

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.

Birthday Party at InflataNation, Beverley

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!

Chocolate Making Party

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!).
