Kids Parties in Adelaide

    Recommended Posts

    We have my sons birthday coming up next week and I struggled knowing what to do. Here are some ideas for Adelaide. Please feel free to add to it

     

     

    Stratco City Beach, Cnr Pirie & Frome St

    IF the thought of looking after a bunch of kids at the beach makes you want to rock back and forth, head to the City Beach.

    Fully enclosed, this sandy pocket of the city is perfect for birthday boys and girls aged eight to 17.

    Party packages include barbecue sausages, use of the kiosk, speakers for blasting music and a variety of balls, bats, buckets and spades.

    Great fun for parents, too. On weekdays and Saturdays it’s $18 per person (minimum 15 guests), Sundays/public holidays, $20. Visit volleyballsa.com.au/functions/birthday-parties

     

     

     

     

     

    SA Museum cafe, North Tce

    THREE words: Dinosaur. Chicken. Nuggets.

    Yes, the museum cafe knows how to throw a pretty cool shindig for little folk, which is fun as well as educational.

    It’s $16 per child and that includes cake service, drinks and party food like nachos, pizzas and the aforementioned nuggets.

    Add-on items for the parents, such as Italian pastries and salt and pepper squid, start at $5.

    Kids can also enjoy an interactive museum tour with singing palaeontologist, Professor Flint — but perhaps it’s better to do that before the sugar high kicks in. Phone 8207 7332.

     

     

     

     

    Mercury Cinema, 13 Morphett St

    HERE is a special birthday treat — hire out a cinema. Mercury Cinema on Morphett St has a 38 seater cinema that can be hired out for private parties. It’s $300 for three hours and the deal includes access to the dedicated foyer space.

     

    Front-of-house staff and a technician are also on hand and the candy bar is open, though bringing food along is totally fine. Have a chat to staff about what film you want screened. Phone 8410 1934.

     

     

     

     

    Adelaide Chocolate School, 48 Melbourne St, North Adelaide

     

    WANNA party? Send the kids to school. Chocolate School, that is. Kids can make chocolate lollipops and an assortment of solid, filled and 3D hollow chocolates at this sweet Melbourne St venue, and get as messy as they like in the process. Prices start at $35 per person. Phone 7120 2664.

     

     

     

    Adelaide Zoo, Frome Rd

    THE zoo has a few options for little party animals aged four to 14. There’s the Panda Picnic Party, which includes food, drinks and a zoo activity trail map, or the Party Animal package, a fully-catered party option which includes an undercover function area and party host.

    Kids also get to feed some of the animals at the Children’s Zoo.

    Prices start from $29.95. Phone: 8267 3255.

    That seems like not a bad price, until your child insists on inviting everyone they know lol.

    In the UK we use to invite everyone in the class then no one felt left out. We have told him 10 max, we are having a pizza/pool party here first then laser tag.

    My daughter catered for my grandsons party last year and said "never again"! $25 per child is a small price to pay for not having to arrange anything, clear up and stress out!

    Just another quick thought if you have the space you could have a party at yours and hire a bouncy castle

     

    http://adelaidejumpingcastles.com

     

    http://www.jumpfirst.com.au

     

    Or you have somewhere like http://www.castlecapers.com.au who not only hire out bouncy castles but they do laser tag, bowling, popcorn machines, slushy machines, Sumo Wrestler suits and mechanical Bulls so you can cater for all ages.

     

    Love this idea that castle capers has, human Futsal

    My youngest wants to go ice skating at the IceArenA at Thebarton. Not sure it will be an organised party but we might take him and invite a few friends. We already have a lot on that weekend and can't face the idea of a big party as well.
